DIY Coffee Table - The Easy Way

In my living room, coffee tables has been changing several times in a last few years. First it was this one, then this one...  Seems like they couldn`t settle down in the space... It`s not a large room, so I always thought that we need the glass coffee table, but I couldn`t find the right one. 
But, life always have his way of finding the right heroes for the story. One big old three in the park fall down, one piece of glass was thrown away, forgotten and found. That was the beginning of story. My role was to bring them together and give them a new life. 
Story begins when I found a round piece of glass. While I was thinking how to make a glass coffee table, I knew I want something more modern, mid-century and gold. 
Enter Hairpin Legs!! I found them online, and once they arrived, I had to figure out how to attach them to the glass top. I couldn’t drill right into the glass, so while we were in our cottage, I find interesting piece of wood I was totally forgot of. I knew right away that`s the missing piece I was looking for. 
Now, since I have all the parts, first I mark and drill wholes for legs and make it a little bigger on the top to hide the screws. My hubby secure the legs to the wooden top and it was my turn to use a wood putty and to hide the screws. A little bit of sending make it smooth and ready for the next step. spray painted the entire new base and new legs in gold with Effect Gold spray paint and paint wooden top with white paint.
When we brought it home I couldn’t love the way it looks in the room more. You would easily pay $200 or more for this piece, but the total cost was under $20, including all supplies, spray paint and legs. Even better, this lovely coffee table was so easy to make!! Now, I need to brainstorm what to make next! 
U mojoj dnevnoj sobi klub stočići su se menjali više puta u poslednjih par godina. Prvo je bio ovaj, pa onda ovaj. Ali nekako nisu mogli da se uklope u prostor... Moja dnevna soba nije velika i zato sam uvek mislila da nam treba stakleni klub stočić, ali nikako nisam mogla da nađem onaj pravi.
Ali, život uvek nađe prave junake za svoju priču. Jedno veliko, staro drvo u parku je oborio vetar, jedno staklo je obačeno, zaboravljeno i pronađeno i to je bio početak priče... Moj zadatak je bio da spojim njihove sudbine i dam im novi život.  
Priča počinje kada sam pronašla okruglo staklo. Dok sam razmišljala kako da od njega napravim stočić, znala sam samo da hoću nešto moderno, možda u mid-century stilu i zlatne boje. 
Naravno, izbor je pao na Hairpin noge!! Pronašla sam ih online i kada su stigle trebalo je da smislim kako da ih pričvrstim za staklo koje sam imala. Naravno da nisam mogla da bušim staklo, ali igrom slučaja, dok smo bili u vikendici naišla sam na interesantan komad drveta koji smo imali i na koji sam potpuno zaboravila. Čim sam ga ugledala, znala sam da je to deo koji tražim. 
Sada kada smo imali sve delove, mogli smo da počnemo da sastavljamo sto. Prvo sam označila i izbušila rupe na drvenom delu za nogare. Rupe sam pri vrhu malo proširila da bih sakrila šrafove. Moj dragi je zašrafio noge za drveni deo i prepustio meni da nastavim. Pošto sam gitom za drvo popunila sve neravnine i sakrila šrafove, ošmirglala sam da bude glatko i spremno za sledeći korak. Effect Gold sprejem sa efektom zlatnih listića sam ofarbala noge i celu bazu sa donje strane, a gornju ploču sam obojila u belo. 
Kada samo ga doneli ga i postavili u dnevnu sobu, bila sam oduševljena. Bez problema biste za ovakav sto dali više od 10.000 RSD, a naš ukupni trošak je bio manje od 2000 RSD, sa svim materijalom, bojama i nogama!! Najbolje od svega je što je bilo tako jednostavno napraviti klub stočić!! Sad ne mogu da prestanem da razmišljam šta sledeće da napravim!!
