Living Room coffeetable

Published on January 11th, 2007 | by Jules Yap


the tord coffee table edition

it is hard to believe that this chic looking slate top coffee table is hacked from a file cabinet. jason scavenged a tord file cabinet (which i’m not able to find on ikea’s site) from the ‘as-is’ room for $9.99 and used the base as legs for the coffee table. he then cut a piece of plywood to fit the base and laid six 12″ slate tiles (or any other stone of your choice) over the plywood.

classy and very effective hack, jason.
