LaivaPax Coffee Table

Materials: Laiva TV Stand, Pax Wardrobe door

I picked up a Pax Fevik wardrobe panel in the as-is section for $5. A couple months later, I picked up the Laiva TV stand for $20. I used some 1×3 lumber to make a support frame to raise the Pax panel a few inches above the Laiva. With the lumber and hardware used to make the support frame, the total cost was less than $35.

That cost went up a bit after a recent IKEA visit, when I picked up a Dioder light set on sale for $30, giving me a glass top coffee table that lights up from with.

More details and photos can be seen at on my Flickr page.
