We were going to throw out a bunch of old CD's when I remembered we had this coffee table sitting on the back porch gathering dust... Very happy with the end result!
Step 1: Getting Down to Business
Once I had sanded the table down a bit I painted it black. Then I got to cutting up the CD's, this was actually harder than I thought, you need strong, sharp scissors! (Some CD's would not cut they sort of splintered, generally the rewritable ones, I gave up trying with those and threw them out)
Step 2: Putting the Puzzle Together
I arranged a small section of the CD pieces at a time and used a small spot of glue on the back to keep it in place. Slowly the table came to life.
Step 3: Finishing
To seal without losing or dulling the reflecting surface of the CDs I used 2 part epoxy resin. I was worried as I had never used this before but it was really easy.
