This is a super simple weekend project for you. Your spouse will even be on board for this one! Adding hardware can instantly elevate the look of a table. That is what I did for this DIY side table. If you are interested, here is a DIY marble side table I did recently.

This side table DIY is so easy it barely needs instructions! Line up "L" brackets on each corner of the table. Drill a small hole into each bracket hole. Screw flat "L" brackets to each corner.
