Let's give it up for easy DIY projects that don't require you to borrow power tools from your suburban friend's garage! If you can handle grade school math, you can make this table. Tree slab + cordless drill + hairpin legs = a beatiful side table that you can put together in 20 minutes. Yes, even in a tiny apartment.

Emily Henderson — Design Star stylist, Redbook magazine contributor and owner of this beautiful home — put together this two-part side table for Redbook for around $100 (and it would be cheaper if you didn't spring for the powder-coated orange legs). The simplicity of this one gives me tons of confidence that I can pull it off to look exactly like the pictures — and when does that ever happen?

There are more photos of the DIY, plus a behind-the-scenes look at styling the shoot (that rug in the first photo is actually upside down!) on Emily's blog.
