Simple DIY Faux Terrazzo Coffee Table (+ Video How-To!)

You guys! I almost forgot we were a DIY blog there for a second… just kidding. But seriously, we’ve been living in a newborn baby bubble for a while now, but I did actually put together some cool projects before we went on maternity leave. It was the getting around to writing the actual blog post while having eye twitches from lack of sleep that have been the problem, haha.

On a happy crafting note, this is a SUPER simple DIY faux terrazzo coffee table that makes for the perfect colorful accent piece. Plus it’s inexpensive and you can make it in less than an hour, which is what I like to call “winning!”.

Even better, there’s a how-to video version that we filmed while I was 8 months pregnant for kicks and giggles…

Table legs at your preferred height, I used 15 inch for the coffee table

Wood stain for table legs (optional)

Finished wooden rectangle for the table top (found at any local home improvement store)

Terrazzo printable

Modpodge

Foam brush

Drill

Wooden leg plates & screw set

Paint for edges of wood (optional)

  1. Sand and paint the edges of your wooden tabletop then let dry. If you’re staining the table legs, do this in advance as well for ample drying time.
  2. With a drill, attach the metal leg plates to all four corners of the bottom of the tabletop
  3. Screw in the legs of your choice and flip the table back over
  4. Using a foam brush, paint a thin coat of Modpodge across the top of the board
  5. Place your printable Terrazzo pattern on top of the slightly damp Modpodge and smooth to remove any bubbles or ripples in the paper
  6. Let dry in place
  7. Flip the table back over and trim the excess paper from the edges using an Xacto knife or rotary cutter
  8. Paint one final coat of Matte Modpodge over top of the terrazzo patterned surface for a waterproof finish.
  9. Now style it and enjoy!

    This is so beautiful and simple. I’m hoping to use it as inspiration to update my currently lackluster coffee table. What resources do you use for printing?

    I LOVE this table! Do you remember the name of the terrazzo pattern? Also how did you print the sheet size and on what type of paper? Would love to recreate here in London!
