Ok, this is Bughouse’s LP sleeve coffee table.  It’s cool and all, but the LP covers are reproductions, not the real thing, which would have been a lot cooler.  However – I reckon this is totally DIY-able for anyone with a bit of patience, classic album covers and some epoxy resin… anyone tried it?

Excellent idea over at Ikea Hacker for spicing up the Expedit glass topped coffee table – so simple and the possibilities are endless.

Make your own bowl from a ‘for sale’ sign (plenty of ’em about in the current financial climate :P), or any other kind of sheet metal sign for that matter – tutorial at Instructables.  I love repurposed metal signage 🙂

This is a great before and after – Kathryn worked her magic on an old telephone table that was fit for the dump, using paint for Colortrend and fabric from Ikea.  I think this is better than anything you could buy new – more proof that a little creativity goes a long way 🙂

The rePly chair project provides free downloadable plans for making your own chairs from scrap plywood.  The project was launched in 2006 in response to the growing problem of plywood waste generated by the construction industry.  The plans are available on the rePly website, where there is also a gallery for DIYers to submit pics of their completed chairs.

Here’s an excellent example of a tired old piece of furniture being brought back to life with a bang.  Maggie has transformed this second hand sideboard into an incredibly cute toy storage solution which now takes pride of place in the playroom 🙂
