This is the first piece of furniture I have ever attempted to make. I learned many things along the way through trial and error and some wasted materials but I am very pleased with the outcome.

All the materials used in it's construction are from recycled materials that we had left over from our reno's we did when we bought our house. Essentially the table was FREE. The decorations we had already.

The frame is made from 2x2's, the interior is 1/8" plywood that I upholstered with tea bag dyed curtains in the storage area and Mirrored Plexi in the display that I broke into pieces and glues.
The sides are leftover burnt mocha bamboo flooring, the glass and plexi are 1/8" from an old built in cabinet.
I also used the hinges and lights from the cabinet as well. The rope light is from our front porch.
The adjustable feet are just a few nuts and bolts I had and added felt feet on the bottom.
I made my own veneer out of the flooring for the top sides

Thanks for checking out my first project and I hope you enjoy it.
Your feedback is welcome as I'm only just getting started with this stuff.
