In the clip, Tiana-Kate used two wood panels, steel tube benches, Gorilla glue, brushes and varnish.
When she got home she started by gluing the two pieces of wood together horizontally to add more width and set it aside to dry.
She then painted the top before attaching the steel legs to the bottom.
The minimalist look went well with her living room and a decorative centerpiece was placed on it for the finishing touch.
Within 48 hours, the video was viewed more than 119,000 times and many were impressed with the end result.
‘I’m going to bunnings!!! This is amazing!! I love it,” one wrote, another added, “I’m obsessed!”
But some warned that the wood is likely to break in time, though Tiana-Kate wasn’t too worried as she was still waiting for the coffee table she ordered.
“The glue will break eventually, you should have drilled dowels or biscuits,” someone said.
The mother responded by saying, “It’s not forever. Frankly, I’ve been lucky to have been able to achieve this.’
