Price $100 to $150

My original “Coffee” Table was such a hit that I was inspired to make more. This table resembles the first in that the sides are done with coffee companies, cafes and pictures of coffee mugs and beans.
I titled it “Light” as I added a “Sweet n Low” mug.
My original “Coffee” Table was such a hit that I was inspired to make another one. The Broadway theme was inspired by finding several Broadway musical mugs at a local Goodwill.
The top is covered with brown matte and gloss plate pieces to provide a different effect. This “Coffee” Table will be my first black coffee table (“Broadway Joe Black” was too much)” Wheels have been added and a handle to the doors has been made to resemble the ear of a mug.

Although this table was the first major piece that I began, it took over 1 year to complete. Searching for the right colors and placing them took considerable time. It is constructed from plates, bowls, mugs and other ceramic items. 61.5″ long by 22″ wide by 17″ tall.
