Our DIY Factory Cart Coffee Table {a Restoration Hardware Knockoff} is finally complete!!!! Do you hear them? The ringing bells of hallelujah? They are ringing and I am singing because I just love this table so much!!!

If you are following me on Facebook and Instagram, then you have seen my picture updates…but in case you haven’t been following along or are just now joining us, here was our inspiration picture

As soon as I showed my Hubby this picture a few months back, he agreed that it would be the perfect addition to our family room transformation. Our anniversary was in November and so this sweet man surprised me by building it for me! I am sure you could imagine the excitement and joy in my face when he asked me to come outside and had pallets waiting and tools laying out to begin building this table. It honestly has been the best present ever!

Today, I am revealing my Husband’s amazing efforts and skill at building this reclaimed wood DIY factory cart coffee table from SCRATCH! I know you all are wiggling in your seats to see it….so here we go…

Look at the detail on all of the hardware. Isn’t it beautiful!
The wood is reclaimed from thrown out pallets that were weathered and worn from rain and sun. I love a good upcycle project!
The large wheels underneath the table are a vintage factory cart wheel that we found at an adorable antique shop in Centralia, WA called Abundance Vintage. One of our very own blogger friends Mimi from Blue Roof Cabin has her beautiful items in this shop. If you are ever on the West side of Washington State, you have to go visit Abundance Vintage and told them I sent you. They would love to meet you!
The smaller wheels were found in my husband’s grandpa’s shop and then he added metal piping and brackets to adhere the wheels to the table. I love that we are using vintage family pieces incorporated throughout our home.
The wood had been stained dark walnut and no, we have not sealed it and I don’t think we will on this project.
So there you have it, our DIY factory cart coffee table!
What do you think? Does my hubby have some awesome building skills or what? I am so proud and thankful for him!!!

    Awesome! I think it even looks better than the pottery barn version! Plus making it yourself, makes it all that more meaningful :) I’d love to try something like this with reclaimed driftwood off my beach!

    I had to come check this out after you mentioned it on my facebook page…it is even nicer than I pictured! Props to your hubby! I’ve always liked these carts but thought it would be a really difficult DIY because the hardware would be hard to find. Sounds like I was right…I bet you were super excited when you stumbled upon it!

      Thanks for the suggestion. We have decided to keep the bolts and screws their original color to stand out again the brackets. We may end up painting them if we change our mind though, so I appreciate your input. Have a great week!

    I do consider all the concepts you’ve presented to your post.
    They’re really convincing and will certainly work.
    Nonetheless, the posts are very quick for beginners. May just you please lengthen them a little from next time?

    Thank you for the post.

    I recently built an adaptation of this table for a customer and was unsuccessful in finding the bracket that holds the small wheel to the cart. Can you tell me the name of that part or where to find it. I showed it to the employees at HomeD and Lowes and they had no idea what it was. Thanks!
