Hi all

I built a coffee table to solve a problem, we had photo’s my wife wanted to display somewhere, as we didnt have the wall space,
I came up with an idea for a coffee table with interchangable face, because it’s great to have a fresh look in the house !!
We had photo’s of our wedding in it , but felt it was time to change it !! my Wife is a huge Twilight fan, so I downloaded pics from the net, got them printed on 6×4 photo paper and scattered them on the coffee table !! the result is fantastic !!!
it is very funtional !!
I wanted to share this idea with everyone , the “table” pictured was made out of pine, I painted it black to give it a modern look !!

It has an MDF sheet under it, to cover it up, I bought black cardboard, then i put the pictures on that !!

I put a hole in the MDF base, so I push the glass up & out to change the look of table !!

The specs are

1270mm x 870mm

Top timber size 110mm x 20mm

Glass 1050mm x 650mm
Please note !! I made the table ,then went to glazier & ordered glass to exact spec size !! he got the size I wanted perfect !!

Base : MDF 1200mm x 800mm x 6mm thick

legs & base from 90mm x 40mm pine.

this is a great idea that finally I put to fruition !!!

It’s fantastic

Ya know, I was just thinking about what this table was going to look like. Well done! I like the overall design and scale of the table. Good proportions. It also fits the color of the floor too. Speaking of twilight, I know this one guy on LJ’s that just posted something on the movie and was losing some man points. But since you mentioned that all the women were swooning you should be good! Again, great job dude!
