Converted CoffeeTable & Glass Shower Door

I mentioned that we were really busy this weekend doing things around the house, but David was really the one doing all the projects. Mind you he did all this in addition to his 7-8 hour class on Saturday. I decided to take a nap in the afternoon/evening and I woke up to loud banging noises. That's what I get for leaving him unattended with tools everywhere.
He decided to convert our coffee table to add extra storage.
It still looks like a normal coffee table.We were tired of our cords from our laptops and phones being all over the table (I had a picture of the mess, but I deleted it by accident).
David pried off the table top from the base, added a sheet of plywood and hinges so it would open. I originally wanted the top to rise up at an angle so I could eat off the table, but the table top is very heavy and it wasn't possible. Don't mind the painting job (David did that too, not one of his strong suits- he'll admit it) but it doesn't matter since you won't really see it and it does look better in person.
Now we can store our cords inside and David put holes so they can come out the bottom.
Look how much neater that looks!
The perfect solution. It only took him a few hours and it has been on his to-do list for a while now.
I promised you a picture of the new glass shower doors and here it is! Well, it's from my phone and quality isn't great, but I didn't feel like busting out the camera last night or this morning. Darn sunlight messing everything up. I am thoroughly loving being able to shower in our master bath!
