I've been after a cable reel for what seems like forever!
Finally I got my hands on one, only a small one but then I was so undecided as to what to do with it, it sat on the top of the storage unit until inspiration came my way!
I chose to paint the top with chalkboard paint as it would make a fun coffee table for everyone of any age to use, I painted the bottom with a blue chalkpaint and decoupaged with vintage sewing patterns (incomplete ones of course)
I added 4 casters to the bottom so its moveable and hey presto, a funky little cable reel coffee table
