With your own hands

Master class: a homemade Moroccan-style coffee table

In every interior should be a highlight -an object that will stand out from the others. For example, an original table in the Moroccan style, which you can make with the help of improvised materials and our master class. To become a happy owner of an exclusive design thing, you will need to spend a lot of time and money. It is much easier to become smiths of one's own happiness by turning to the golden rule "Do it yourself". Today we suggest that you transform the interior with the help of such an unusual coffee table, in shape resembling a traditional percussion instrument of African peoples. You will need:

  • round wooden table top (taken, for example, at an old and already unnecessary round table, bought or sawed alone);
  • a round element for the footrest (it can be made of various materials: wood, metal, chipboard);
  • support axis (in our example, a part of the gypsum column, which can be ordered in the sculptor's workshop, is used, but it can be replaced, for example, with a fragment of a wooden beam);
  • vinyl tapes;
  • paint with glossy effect;
  • carnations for furniture upholstery with wide hats;
  • liquid Nails.

The entire creative process consists of two stages: carcass assembly and decoration. With the help of liquid nails, we "nail" the base and countertop to the support axis. We paint the frame with white paint with a glossy effect. We cut vinyl tapes and fix them on the edges of the table top with the help of carnations. We pull the bands around the column leg using one of them. We fix the free ends of the belts under the base with the help of glue, stapler or other devices available at hand. For convenience of operation, it is recommended to turn the table upside down. Important: the tapes must be locked in tension. Only with this condition can the table be able to purchase a conceived exotic form.
