There’s nothing more satisfying than a DIY project that pays off. Especially when it transforms a mundane, everyday object into a completely different everyday object that is anything but mundane.
Imgur user TheScaleBanana—whose previous claim to fame is fashioning an aluminum banana for determining scale in photos—needed a new coffee table. He had a door. Do you see where this is going? We’ve all seen the shabby-chic, slap-a-door-on-some-legs table before. However, TheScaleBanana wasn’t satisfied with something so simple. Instead, he fashioned something that would be at home in a modern art gallery as much as it is in his living room.
A sneak preview of the finished product.
It begins with a door reclaimed from a renovation.
A quick bit of math and some careful measurements, left the door in pieces.
After the geometry lesson comes the glue.
Scrap pieces round out the design and provide a stable base.
Some careful finishing and a coat of paint…
And the result is nothing short of amazing.
