Turn cable spool into home accent

An old cable spool

Integrating different interior styles is what gives a room character. Break away from the grid and shake things up by mixing new and old, modern and classic, contemporary and traditional.

We found a cable spool at a construction site, brought it home and turned it into an accent table in a sitting room.


This is a good example of how something that looks industrial can actually blend in perfectly with old furniture.

The cable spool is given a new purpose—as a table, by positioning it in a corner that’s perfect for enjoying a cup of tea or coffee.


The unexpected transformation of a cable spool into a table works well with a vintage hand-painted cabinet and classic chair.

Tip: You may place a glass top on the cable spool to keep the surface smooth and even.

It makes a unique side table for coffee or tea.
