There is nothing easier than this lovely DIY Basket side table. You know what, it even doubles as a storage for extra throws. how cool is that?!!
Where did I get the Idea from?
Have you seen those basket side tables called KVITSBRO from Ikea?. I like the concept of storage + side table, but that is too transparent for me. I would prefer something that does not show the things inside and the other point is the Ikea product is all metal, this doesnt give a cozy vibe in my opinion. KVITSBRO would look nice when its empty but when it is filled with several uncoordinated colorful blankets or throws, it can easily become an eyesore in the room. I think, something semi transparent would be nice.
Recently, while shopping at Home Goods, this woven basket caught my eyes. Tadaaaa..💡 Its the perfect basket for this DIY. The construction is neat with white rope woven all over the metal frame basket.
What you need?
This is the easiest DIY I have ever done so far. All you need is a sturdy basket big enough to be a side table i.e. at least 18 inches diameter opening. The basket that I bought is 24 inches diameter. Next, you need a round wood top. They are readily available at local stores in various diameters. I bought a 1inch thick 2ft diameter pine board from home depot. Just make sure that the wood top you buy is not smaller than your basket opening. Overhangs are ok though.
You can finish the top in any color or stain you like. I made a layered Epoxy Resin Pour Art in white, pink and gold. It looks stunning guys. You can watch the below video to see how I did the resin pour.
⚒️ ITEMS USED FOR THE RESIN POUR:
Pine Edge Glued Round Board – 1 in. x 2 ft. x 2 ft.
White enamel spray Paint

Here is a close up of the resin top. The layers are just gorgeous. The photos don’t do the justice.
After finishing the top, place it on top of the basket.
This is perfect for my living room near the couch. It is light weight and holds extra throws and pillow covers in our house. I love the white woven texture of the basket. It adds depth and warmth to the interiors.
