"Don't be here in ten years." – The Factory Line

Turning one of my paintings into a table

I turned a painting into a work table for the job using a bunch of old legs, tampered glass shelves we had laying around and some silicone. I bought the canvas that fit with the glasses we had and used the wooden frame as support for the legs. The glue smeared on the edges, so that’s a technique I’ll have to improve, but as a prototype, I’m pretty happy about it,

  1. Great idea to repurpose your art! Looks fantastic. Just a question – what was the silicone for and is how are the glass panes staying in place? Thanks!

    • hi, the silicone was to seal off the cracks since I did’nt have a single piece glass to work with…they hold with “no nails” glue but its less than satisfying… next I’ll try a glass that’s larger than the canvas and see if I can seal it while glueing it down around the edges, hiding the glue at the same time!

      • Awesome – can’t wait to see if you try it again some day.
