Here are a few sneak peeks of a Beer Coaster Pop-up Table I’m working on. It started as I was sanding table we had that the kids had colored on with markers. I sanded the table top for what seamed like 30 mins and the marker stains were not coming out as the wood has soaked up the color. I looked for a way to cover up the marks and my first thought was to paint it but after a little brainstorming I came up with the idea of covering the entire top with beer coaster that I had been collecting over the years.
After the top was finished, I flipped the table over to tighten the frame and snapped one of the beams holding up the right side. No problem, just rebuild it. So I did and after taking it all apart, I noticed that everything was warped and stripped so I scrapped the entire project however I was left with this beautiful table top. One thought lead to another, we needed a larger living room table, I wanted versatility and here is a work in progress of the result.
3/10 – I’ve painted the interior of the table white, added 1″ caster wheels to the bottom with skirt modeling so it looks like it’s floating 3/4″ above the ground and added trim around all the edges. I’ll post pics of the completed piece when done.
