    I love the visual effect but this really doesn’t look too safe…

    Great idea!

    and who doubts that the glass vases can support the weight of the TV stand might want to watch this:

    You could drill a hole through the bottom of the glass vase if you’re worried about the structural integrity of glass. This way you retain the original legs and just have them sit through the vase directly on the ground.

    They should all hold up as long as pressure remains even, but yes a bad bump or sudden increase of weight could cause them to shatter.

    That looks cool but dangerous…I like the idea though.

    I totally love this. I doubt they are going to break, as long as the pressure is even.

    Holy crap that is totally going to break and explode! What in the world makes you think that will work over the long term?

    if you fear glass explosions, just put legs hidden behind the vases, like that you won’t see them and they will support the weight, or at least a part

    How much weight can those take?

    That just looks like a glass and rock explosion waiting to happen.
