We love the mix of iron and wood, but since we aren’t exactly welders… well, we had to fake it. We built this simple angled leg coffee table with faux iron rods for less than $30! This table is simple yet still adds tons of character to any room. Plus, when you make something yourself, it’s always a great conversation piece!

Since we decided to use a mix of finishes, we finished each section before we assembled the table. For the table I stained with Varathane Early American and sealed with satin triple-thick polyurethane. To see how Jamie did the “faux iron” on the 2x2s be sure to check out her faux corroded iron finish tutorial.
