You can find/buy a used splash back and get professorial glass cutters to cut to adequate size.

You could order one at your preferred size from a website online.

The price to get glass cut is around £100-£150 or $159-$238. This is a rough estimate.

You could also order a new coffee table from a well known retailer like Amazon or Ebay.

Hope I could help answer your question! :)

I had the same thing happen with a kitchen table. i took a piece of 1/4" plywood and cut to size. it was one of those octogonal table tops so i measured 3 times and then cut, lol. i then sanded the entire thing and stained it. i glued pictures from national geographic magazine as place mats and also in the center. i then polyurathened it with several coats. we used for many years and it stood up fine. we moved and we bought a new table and i gave it away. the whole thing was cheaper than the glass. also safer for the kids, since they broke it to begin with, lol. good luck, maybe this will help.
