DIY: $100 Glass and Concrete Coffee Table

October 12, 2015

We’ve posted about concrete block coffee tables before (see 12 Tables Made with Cinder Blocks, Economy Edition), but we hadn’t seen one with a glass top until we spotted this one in the airy downtown showroom of LA fashion designer Shaina Mote. Here’s how to make your own.

Above: A 15-by-28-inch Flat-Edge Tempered Radius Corner Rectangular Glass Tabletop is $91.99 (other sizes available) from Fab Glass & Mirror. To protect the glass from scratching, use either clear rubber Stick-It Glass Protective Pads ($4.97 for a pack of 20 from Amazon) or Self-Stick Furniture Felt Pads ($5.49 from Amazon).

For another low-cost DIY project with components sourced from the hardware store, see Alexa’s Elevated $15 Hardware Store Clamp Light.
