This particular coffee table is made from doors and drawer fronts taken from a storage unit with legs from another piece. All the owner had to do is add some screws and glue and it was done. Well, it wasn’t exactly that simple. Here’s the whole story. The owners of this apartment were looking for a suitable coffee table for their home. They already knew what they wanted but finding something to fit their description was difficult. After a while they decided to take matters into their own hands.

One day they went to IKEA and got two Applad doors, two Applad drawer fronts and 4 Godmorgon legs. They built the coffee table in two steps. First they attached the drawer fronts to one of the doors and created the base for the table. They then drilled five holes on each side of the door and used five long screws along with some glue to keep everything in place. After that they attached the top door to the base and they attached it using dowels and glue in order to avoid screw heads that weren’t really aesthetic. At the end they attached the legs to the table. It was a quite simple project and the results are impressive.{found on ikeachakers}.
