Coffee & Side Tables rsz_dsc01030-728285

Kitchen top to coffee table


Materials: Lagan/ Document coffee table

Description: Just a simple wood/metal coffee table. Four Document magazine storage thingies are used as table legs. A Lagan counter top is used as the table top.

Wood screws were used to fix the “legs” to the table top and some carriage bolts to decorate and beef them up a bit. The pattern of the “legs” is sort of axis symmetric around the table, but any other should do the trick, as long as the load is distributed.

So far, it seems to be sturdy enough. Hope you like it!

    If you’d put the “legs” in the other way you’ll have and storage table for control remotes, magazines or other stuff like serviettes or whatever.
