Wall shelf from a coffee table with a bonus end table!

Scotty and Holly had just bought a flat screen television and wanted it to go on the wall. But then, where do you put all the other stuff?

They say, “I went to Ikea to look for wall shelves for the components (stereo, dvd, etc) – avoid using a piece of furniture just for the components. None of the wall shelves Ikea sold were deep enough. I then purchased two Lack coffee tables and used the tops as the wall shelves. I secured them to the wall with the Ekby brackets, and wired the components through the back of the wall.

With the leftover coffee table bits, I constructed a decorative end table, perfect for housing a lamp, using the Lack’s second shelf as the table top, and a base stablizer. The legs form a column as the base.
