There’s actually a whole series entitled like that and it includes a TV unit, coffee table, side table and some wall shelves. Today we’ll only focus on the tables, trying to find ways to integrate them into ingenious projects. Let’s start with a simple transformation. For this project you can use either a Lack or a Hemnes table which are both Ikea coffee tables. Get some wooden boards and cut them to size so you can make a tabletop. Stain them and measure the center of the table so you know where to place the first board. Clamp each end down and then add the others the same way. Glue and screw all the boards, turn the table upside down and put something heavy on the middle. Let it sit overnight, add more screws in the center of each board but on the underside so you don’t see them.

That’s when the user utilizes a pulley system to maximize the floor space in the room. An automatic up/down mechanism lowers and raises the bed as needed. The bed has to be assembled on site by the buyer. Both the size and the materials are largely customizable. The largest bed weighs around 80 kg and features extra protection designed to make it safe and secure in the pulled up position.

Given the right setting, a modern media console has the potential of becoming a focal point in the living room although it can easily blend in and stay subtle if so desired. Modern media storage stands are usually very simple and this allows them to be very versatile and adaptable. There are numerous existing designs that are worth displaying as more than just functional furniture and, if you prefer something different, there’s always the option to turn this into a DIY project. Built using curved glass, the Screen console table has a sleek design created by Lievore Altherr Molina for modern and contemporary interiors. The console comes equipped with a CD/DVD holder.

You don’t have to build the frame from scratch, if the mirror already had one. Just one pallet wood to frame it. Cut four pieces of wood, arrange them and glue them to the existing frame and mirror.. Then use nails to keep them in place. With this method you can also adjust the shape and size of a mirror without havign to cut it. The best way to get a rustic look is by using weathered wood. To build a mirror frame similar to this one, use 4-6 mirror clips and some lumber. Cut the wood pieces and screw them together. Check to see if the mirror fits and then mark where you want to add the clips. Attach the clips and make sure they’re not too tight.

This is why designers are constantly innovating and coming up with new designs meant to increase the coffee table’s functionality or aesthetic appeal. The materials they use are sometimes odd. Concrete coffee tables are, for example, may not be very popular but they’re definitely interesting. The Mason coffee table shows us that concrete has a sophisticated side. That side was showcased in a minimalist design which emphasizes the table’s polished surface, clean lines and cool gray color.

However, certain types are created specifically to let you get around this problem, like this one hanging from the ceiling, above the kitchen island which also serves as a bar. A rustic wine glass rack can be made of wood and attached to the ceiling using metal chains. It can be a simple DIY project and it would look beautiful in an industrial or rustic space, with a wooden ceiling, exposed beams and rough finishes.

A concrete desktop, bench or coffee table can looks beautiful in both modern and traditional settings and this particular table, with its polished look and functional design takes versatility a step further by also featuring casters. The combination of concrete and wood featured by this table is unexpected and really attractive. The coldness of the concrete and the warmth of the wood complement each other in a natural and harmonious way.

In case you have some extra wallpaper or if you simply like the look, an interesting idea is to cover the top of the coffee table with wallpaper and maybe even coordinate with your ceiling or accent wall. It’s a simple and inexpensive upgrade and a great way to rejuvenate an old table with water stains on it. But enough with the coffee tables. Let’s also take a look at some projects involving the Lack side table. A very interesting idea is to cover the top of the table with pennies. For the project you need wood moulding, black paint, a picture frame mount, reinforced glass and around 621 pennies. It’s not a fast project but if you have time and patience, go for it.

The Folio media stand designed by Giuseppe Bavuso is a freestanding unit that hides most of its storage at the back while the front features a sleek, curved panel that doubles as a TV stand. Behind it there’s a series of small shelves/ storage compartments for DVDs and other small objects. If you prefer something a bit more low profile, take a look at the NeXo cabinet. It has a simple and sophisticated design and comes with built-in speakers, a detail that increases the unit’s versatility, allowing it to suit living rooms and home theater’s alike.
