Ikea Frosted Glass Table

    frosted glass
  • Frosted glass, or opaque glass, is produced by the sandblasting or acid etching of clear sheet glass. It has the effect of rendering the glass translucent by scattering of light during transmission, thus blurring images while still transmitting light.

  • Glass with a white translucent surface resulting from sandblasting or etching.

  • Glass used for light bulbs that has been roughened or treated with a spray on coating (See IF), for the purpose of diffusing light. (See Diffusion).

  • a set of data arranged in rows and columns; "see table 1"

  • postpone: hold back to a later time; "let's postpone the exam"

  • Postpone consideration of

  • a piece of furniture having a smooth flat top that is usually supported by one or more vertical legs; "it was a sturdy table"

  • Present formally for discussion or consideration at a meeting

  • An international, originally Swedish home products retailer that sells modern, utilitarian design furniture, much of which is assembled by the consumer

  • IKEA (Ingvar Kamprad Elmtaryd Agunnaryd) is a privately held, international home products Dutch corporation that designs and sells ready-to-assemble furniture, appliances and home accessories. The company is now the world's largest furniture retailer.



I couldnt do this without a little HDR now could I? Anyway the back story:
I was tired of working on small, THIN computer work tables. I started sizing up a proper surface and surfing through the IKEA catalogue. For some reason the idea of edge lighting a glass top came to mind and I found IKEA has one called the Vika Glasholm. It comes in a few different flavors but I liked the plain frosted one. The frosting helps diffuse the light of the LEDs. Wiring the LEDs was relativley easy too. The rest of the furniture is pretty standard IKEA fare, finding the glass was the major breakthrough. Local custom glass shops wanted about twice as much as IKEA for the 3/8 glass of a similar size (30x60) and thats without any frosting. The LEDs and the powersupply cost almost as much as the glass!

The personal Black and White photos make me feel at home, the archicterual theme is very personal, unlike most of the work I do for clients, I think it helps anchor me.

After- Living Room

The huge armoire was a find at a garage sale for $20.00- What a deal!
The glass top end table was place next to the sofa was the dining table from the last apartment. Not a perfect choice for storage issues in small spaces, but a quick fix none the less. The sofa and chair is from Ikea. The coffee table was inherited from a friend- I flipped it upside down-had a piece of glass cut-frosted it and use it to store seasonal items in.
