The Tables turned
Transform your lifeless coffee table into a statement piece of furniture. For this you can simply take an old Wooden Shutter and lay it across the top of an exisiting coffee table to give it a new lease of life. Or if you are feeling more creative then why not make a table or unit from scratch using the wooden shutters to create the top. You can add a pane of glass if desired or leave it in its natural state for a raw more rustic finish.
