How to Make a Round Table Into a Coffee Table

Having a round table around your living room is great, but know how to make it more functional? Converting it into a coffee table can majorly expand the utility and style of your furniture. Here’s how to pull it off:

Step 1: Measure Your Table

Take accurate measurements of your round table across the length and width. This will help you decide what size glass tabletop to get.

Step 2: Buy a Glass Topper

Use your measurements to search online or browse in physical stores for a round glass tabletop, that matches your table’s size. Choose from either clear, frosted, or tinted glass, to match your home decor.

Step 3: Attach the Topper

You’ll need a few tools for this step. You’ll also need to detatch the legs from the tabletop. Most coffee tables have legs that screw on and off.

  • Hammer
  • Putty Knife
  • Caulking Gun
  • Silicone Adhesive
  • Wood Screws

Now that you’ve fet the legs off, attach the new glass topper to your table by applying silicone adhesive to the table’s edges. Use a putty knife to evenly spread the silicone and then carefully lay on the glass. After you secure it, wait two days for it to fully dry and cure.

Step 4: Reattach the Legs

To reattach the legs, use a caulking gun to spread silicone adhesive on the table’s bottom corners. Now, firmly place each leg into the silicon and screw into place.

And there you have it! Your round table is now a fully functional and stylish coffee table.
