I have become quite philosophical whenever something around the house gets broken. I now see it as an opportunity to hunt for a replacement or get creative in repairing the item, which is what I decided to do when a friend recently sat on our glass-topped coffee table and it didn't take the strain, resulting in broken glass.
I contemplated buying a new glass top but after giving the decision some more thought I decided to do something a bit more original.
With the help of my hubbys skill on the end of a saw I came up with this wooden top which I personally think looks fabulous. I feel that if I saw this table in a shop I would just have to have it. So for the costly sum of around $30 we have this new coffe table top.
This is the only shot I have of the table with it's glass top. Excuse my lounge. Due to a lack of storage it has become a dumping ground for all the sofas I plan to recover and sell, apart from the striped couch which I recovered a year ago. (Don't ask me why that one is facing the wrong way!?!?!?!)
Hmmm, I've just noticed the stripes on my sofa don't line up. As soon as I finish this post I will go and flip the cushions over.
