Before we get in to the nitty gritty, check out this link. That, my friends is cable drum table on sale (!!!!) for £255.55. To me, that’s an expensive coffee table. It’s not that I’m tight, I’ve just always been sensible with money (and I don’t really like parting with it!) – so if there’s a chance I can do something on the cheap, I’m gonna do it.
