We made this coffee table out of a vintage cole steel blueprint cabinet. We found 2 similar cabinets at a second hand store, for a great price. I knew when I saw them I wanted to turn them into coffee tables.

We added industrial wheels and an oak top, then I painted and distressed the cabinet itself.
It's great storage for magazines, large books and craft supplies.
