Furniture DIY – How to Make a Coffee Table from Road Signs!

Here’s a great DIY showing you how to make a coffee table from old road signs you picked up (stole) on the interstate highway!

By the way, my college roommates (few years back) did steal a bunch of road signs.  They eventually got caught with the law, they had to do some volunteer work picking up trash.  Just some advice. 🙂

I tend to repeat my IKEA-horror story on how I bought over $1000 of coffee tables in the last couple years and they ALL BROKE!

But yes, it might be a great time for me to actually make one myself, at least I don’t have to blame IKEA for outsourcing their furniture to China.

My mother wanted a unique, traditional and modern coffee table. I found some old antique wooden windows at a flea market, and designed this coffee table around them.

IKEA Hack – How to Make a Kitchen Countertop Shelf!

IKEA has probably the cheapest, nicest furniture ever.  Nevermind the fact that 2 coffee tables I have bought from IKEA in the last 2 years have all broke, there’s always room for little hacking such as this cool Kitchen Countertop Shelf that will create a lot of extra space for your kitchen gadgets such as bowls, pans, and whatnot.

I have seen IKEA go from nothing to a national retailer in America and I have to say IKEA is still cheap furniture (I will never buy a coffee table from IKEA ever again) but hacking makes them better.

LED Coffee Table from Sparkfun!


Remember those DIY Coffee Tables from Evil Mad Scientists?  Well, here’s a similar one from Sparkfun.

“Periodic Table” Coffee Table

This beautiful Coffee Table embeds a whole Periodic Table” for those of you who simply can’t get enough with the table in your head alone.

Close-up pics reveal that the table itself doesn’t define what the element is, rather a sample of each element is buried inside as solid block of acrylic.
