Globewest dupe - Coffee table

It's been a little while since I've posted, but I'm back with another easy DIY!

 

I saw a table from Globewest that I loved, but for $1500 it was out of my budget and I just knew I could DIY it for less. So I purchased the Finn Coffee Table from Kmart ($29) and the Home Bazaar Terrazzo Coffee Table from Bunnings ($60) and combined them using my favourite Selleys Hold Up Glue.

 

To position the legs I marked out the centre and then drew a 15cm triangle around it. I then placed the legs so that they were pointing towards the centre and marked around them before glueing them down. I then waited overnight (about 12 hours) before turning it over to reveal the finished product.

 

I find that the table is secure enough and I trust the selleys hold up, but if you feel like it needs some reinforcement you could add a few small angled brackets.

Re: Globewest dupe - Coffee table

Hello @sammilne

 

Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful coffee table project. There is nothing like creating a piece of furniture that looks exactly like the one you want for a fraction of the cost. I've done the same thing with my display cabinets, I could not bring myself to pay for a thousand-dollar timber shelving system when I knew I could build it myself.

 

Again, thank you for sharing the photos and materials you used for this amazing coffee table project.

 

We look forward to seeing your next creation.

 

Eric

I had to google Globewest - I don't understand their pricing??
