1. Simple DIY Infinity Coffee Table
You make the infinity part of this table with running LED lights and it is a really simple build. You do need quite a few power tools and several different sizes of boards but the overall process is not at all difficult. This is a gorgeous coffee table when it is finished and it is sure to impress everyone in your living room – with its gorgeous infinity look and with your woodworking skills.
2. Upcycled Coffee Table Infinity Table
You don’t have to build your DIY infinity table completely from scratch. You can simply upcycle another table and add the top to give it the infinity table look. This not only saves you time but it saves you money, since you won’t have to buy all of the wood and 2X4s to build the table top and the legs. You simply create the top by building up the top of your upcycled table to add the LED lights and mirrors. You have to love DIY furniture makeover projects.
3. DIY Infinity Table With Storage Drawers
This DIY coffee table has that great infinity table look and it has storage drawers, too. If you need that additional storage in the living room, this is a good one to build. It’s a pretty easy table to complete and won’t take you longer than a few days to finish. The storage drawers are a great touch and they don’t get in the way of the infinity effect at all. The estimated cost for this one is about $300, but you can cut that down a bit if you have a few supplies left over from other woodworking projects.
4. Retro Hexagonal Infinity Table
This retro infinity table is in true hexagonal shape and it is amazing. You can use this as a side table or put it anywhere you want to spark conversation. It will only take you a day to build and you will enjoy it for a lifetime. It is about $100 or so to make this one, depending on how you build it and what specific materials you already have on hand. The color and the shape are truly unique and give this one such a wonderful retro look.
5. Easy Wooden Infinity Table
This particular infinity table was built by a student, so it should be pretty easy for you, especially if you have a few woodworking skills. This one is a bit shorter than others, and makes a wonderful coffee table. Or, you could make it taller and have it as a side table or even a console table. The process is the same, you need LED lights and mirrors to get the infinity effect and overall, this is one of the easiest DIY infinity tables that you could build.
6. Easy DIY Mega Infinity Table
This is one of the easiest infinity tables to make and it is huge. This would be a great party table or you could narrow it down a bit and make it into a console table. Make it as tall or as short as you need – just adjust the leg height to however you need it to be. The process is about the same as others and this one will only take you a day to build and it’s the size of a door!
7. DIY Infinity Side Table
You can build an infinity table into any size or practically any shape that you want. Take this DIY infinity side table for instance. This would be perfect for the living room and you could make two of them to have matching tables. You’ll need a few 2X4s and 4X4s, as well as a mirror the size of your table, glass for the top, reflective film and a few strands of LED lights. Imagine this as a bedside table!
8. Upcycled Window Pane Infinity Table
You can use an upcycled window pane as the base for your infinity table and save a bundle of cash, not to mention a lot of time in the building process. This is a great project to add to those list of upcycled window projects and it’s really easy to do. Once you have the infinity top built – from your window pane, a mirror and your LED lights, you just add legs or you could even use this one to just place on top of a regular table of the same size and save yourself from having to build the legs. This is such a great project for repurposing old windows.
9. DIY Infinity Sofa Table
I love the look of this DIY infinity table for behind the sofa. The narrow frame makes it perfect as a console table and the metal legs are so much easier and cheaper to attach than wooden legs. Plus, this doubles as a game table or just a place to sit and talk. Just add a couple of bar stools behind it and you’re all set. This one is super easy to make and doesn’t take much time to complete.
10. Upcycled Glass Top Infinity Table
Take an old glass top coffee table – one that has seen better days – and turn it into a new and exciting infinity table. If you have a glass top table to use, this project won’t cost you much to complete. If you don’t have a glass top table, check your local yard sales and thrift stores. They’ll normally have them for just a few dollars each. Then you just have to add the LED lights and mirrors and you have a coffee table that is sure to be a conversation starter.
