What to do with an old glass coffee table
Glass coffee tables can be beautiful, but when it’s time for a change, there are a variety of ways to repurpose it. Here are some possibilities:
1. Used as Side Table
Glass coffee tables often have sturdy legs and can be moved easily, making them ideal for use in a situation where a side table is needed. Whether you’re looking for a way to spruce up your living room, or you need extra space in the bedroom, using an old glass coffee table as a side table allows you to make the most of the space without sacrificing style.
2. Craft Table
The very features that make glass coffee tables useful as side tables (sturdy legs and ease of movement) makes them versatile options when it comes to crafting. The glass surface is hard enough to stand up to various materials, yet allows for easy clean-up after crafting sessions. Plus, it’s the perfect space for craft items when not in use.
3. Storage Unit
Glass coffee tables can prove to be highly functional if you’re looking for a way to maximize storage. With just a few modifications, the coffee table can become a hidden storage unit with a lift-top surface to store books, DVD’s, blankets, and more.
4. Patio Table
If you have an outdoor space, an old glass coffee table can be repurposed as the perfect patio table. It’s the perfect place to keep snacks, drinks, extra throw pillows and other must-have items while you lounge outside.
5. Close-tou Home Activity Station
For those of us stuck at home, an old glass coffee table can serve a variety of purposes. Kids can play or do crafts on the surface, while storage can be added beneath in order to store toys, books, games, and other items.
6. Decorative Piece
Finally, if you’re looking for a unique way to spruce up your home, repurposing your glass coffee table in an unexpected way can be a great way to do so. Transform it into a terrarium, aquarium, or use it as a candle holder. Get creative and come up with something that fits your style and needs.
Ultimately, there’s no wrong way to repurpose an old glass coffee table. With some imagination, you can turn your old piece into something both functional and beautiful.
