I saw a picture of a furniture made from tables like this in a magazine, and i fell in love straight away. I had to make one myself!! I thought it would be easy peacy and cheap, BUT is took weeks!! I had some trouble with the paint and the cutting project was more complicated than I had thought - but my dad helped me (;
and I LOVE it!! Unfortunately it is custom made for that wall in my room, so it will not be possible to take it with me when i move :(
I had a picture in my head of how I wanted the furniture to be, and after having bought the desk table and the small one, with the tiles, I made a drawing of how I would like it to end up. I've changed the color though, and the shelve on top is a bit different as well.
I bought some different tables from a market. This is the bottom table/desk while it is still "whole".
Later I cut it in half length wise, so i would still have the drawer in the "main" table of my desk.
The other half I used as a shelve in one of the "higher levels".
I did this (cutting in half length wise) with all of the tables, which means I only had to bye 3 tables to make a desk and 5 shelves.
(sorry, but Im not sure how to turn the pic)
This is the legs i have used for two of the shelves. The plate is a little special because it has tiles in it. The old tiles were cracked, so I had to change them before putting the table back together.
I decided to paint the whole furniture in a light gray color. Before doing so i cut the plates and legs the size I wanted them (at least 30 cm in depth and 20 cm hight for the legs).
Then I painted the whole thing and gathered it.
It was a bigger challenge than I had expected, but I love the result!!
Do you like it? (;
