REPURPOSE - DIY -I made this out of a wooden cable spool that I got at lowes. Painted it and decoupaged-collaged the top with ripped magazines. Glass top was about 35bucks, but otherwise free!!! Also if you use glass top screw in about 8 screws around edge and place little plastic adhesive cabinet door bumper. This keeps glass elevated above the metal bolts in center of table.
Another spool table made with tin. This model was a little easier than the first one. We attached pressed tin to the inner core, painted and stenciled the top, then finished with rope edging. The whole project took about 2 hours.
