Rainbow coffee tables

These coffee tables are made of pieces of agate and "golden" egg holders I found in Indian shoppe here. I bought egg holders thinking of making some pouffes in the future and agates because I loved them:)

I love the fact that every piece of the stone has got different colour and different pattern and all are just beautiful. They are sold here atas pendants - that's why you can see a little hols in them :) - but they are fab table tops.;)

Two sides table top - that's why it cannot be firmly glued! ;)

It looks like some Oceanic island to me.:)

I think the rainbow coffe tables could be used in modern interiors, Asian inspired ones or in shabby schic ones too.;) These are the legs of the tables.

No, it doesn't has 6 legs! What you see are two egg holders put together:)But the legs may be made of something else, like here :)

The wooden elephants!:)

The table tops are not glued to the legs for now as I need to find a place for them yet.;)

What a great (and very original) idea. I could just lose myself in that blue one, it does indeed look like an island in a very blue ocean.

How inventive, the stones make very pretty table tops, I think would look best in a modern room perhaps.

Ewa, if you are making Asian roomboxes, you know who to find if you need something ;p. These stones are way too precious for table tops but they are glamorous and decadent! :)
