To start, we bought two NYBODA coffee tables. They come with a powder coated steel frame and a black/beige reversible particleboard table top.
We replaced the particleboard tops with two cut to size Neolith 8mm thick porcelain slabs, which we put on top of the two bits of MDF we had also cut to size.
Total cost € 360,00

#1 Back-lit world map coffee table
Alan had seen a glass-top table made on an advertising campaign (for a stationers) and thought a LACK coffee table was the perfect candidate. Plus he had seen a back-lit world map wall mounted in an office and thought it was a good first subject to put under the glass. Here’s the finished result.
#2 Lift top coffee table
When Stephan started to live on his own he bought the MELLTORP square table. First it was a dining table. Later, when he could afford more space, he got another dining table and changed the MELLTORP into a coffee table by cutting down the legs to sofa height. But eating from that table or working was quite uncomfortable with the body hunched over. So he decided to hack it into a lift top coffee table.
#3 Natural wood coffee table
And after a lot of searching Johan did not find any matching wood coffee table. So his wife wanted to use two SKOGSTA benches next to each other. He thought it was not an ideal solution and went on to hack the two 120cm SKOGSTA benches into one natural wood coffee table.
