Place the two 2" pieces between the two 2.5" pieces and clamp together to make one set of legs. Repeat.

Glue legs to tabletop

Clamp together a tabletop made of ten 4.5" pieces. Lay glue on legs and set them down on top of the tabletop. Clamp together.

Sand nice corners for the pieces that slide in-between the legs as shown below:

You can do whatever you want with the miniature coffee table at this point. There are tons of woodworking tips online referring to painting, staining, or making rustic wood pieces.

I decided to coat it with a gray stain. I Minwax classic gray 271.

When staining miniatures, use a brush to get the hard to reach spots!

Tip on staining wood

After staining, I decided to tape off the top and spraypaint the rest white.
