Plexiglas Cube Tables
A Plexiglas cube is converted into a pop-art end table with a spring theme. Flowers are arranged on a square mirror and then a pair of vintage white go-go boots stuffed with pink and black fabric are placed in the middle of the flowers. The transparent cube is placed over the top. For the masculine version, the boots and flowers get switched out with chrome wheels.

Calla Lilies and Throw Pillows
A shell-shaped serving tray is given a gold-leaf treatment and then black calla lilies are dramatically laid in the tray for a glamorous effect. Colored raffia is sewn, woven or ripped to create colorful covers for throw pillows. A pink plastic raincoat is used to make a sassy floor cushion.
A room divider is made using medium-density fiber board (MDF). A jigsaw is used to cut out a large fleur de lis shape. The large fretwork is then painted black and hung between the living room and the bedroom.
Mirrored Table and TV Cover
The high-tech table is created by building a box out of plywood and then adhering mirrored tiles to the box with epoxy. Chrome legs are then screwed onto the base. To create a cover for the wall-hung TV, a plywood box gets covered with vintage 1970s wallpaper.
Old costume jewelry is glued onto a tree branch to make some spring bling artwork for the credenza.
