      painted coffee tables = desk and shelves - maybe I wouldn't do it in purple - but it's a very creative idea!!

      Definitely not a fan of the purple but I think if done right, this could be the perfect space saving solution for the library/office area. :) Gonna do this but in black or hmmm... maybe red. I don't know, colored furniture makes me nervous! lol I need TWO wooden coffee tables and a desk like this I'm gonna saw the tables in half to make the shelves.

      Promoting the ideas of creative reuse and the aesthetics of vintage furniture, Dutch designer Isabel Quiroga has repurposed various tables into Storyteller. This purple shelving and desk combo reminds us of Matt Carr's Biblioteca Bookrack design for Umbra and the fantastical designs of Bay-area designer Thomas Wold.
