Everyone's Making DIY Infinity Tables And They're Mesmerising
A craftsman from California sparked the trend - a table that appears to be hollow and bottomless thanks to a mesmerising optical illusion - by upcycling a cheap Ikea table and adding a light feature.
In the video posted by Alex Brus, he shows how to make one yourself - and it's easier than you might think:
The clip shows Alex removing the middle part of the square coffee table, before making a new wooden square frame to go in its place.
He then installs a mirrored panel on the bottom of the new frame and a new glass panel to the top, adding an LED light panel in between the two layers.
Finally, he adds a switch to the side and fits the new panel to the top of the coffee table and the mesmerising effect is created.
Once the lights are turned on, the table appears to go through the floor, creating an infinity effect that goes on and on.
Alex said: "I used a very cheap coffee table from Ikea to make a very cool looking infinity mirror."
And others have been following suit with their own DIY infinity tables.
One Instagram user went with a green theme for her infinity table, to go with her new cactus collection:
While another created an intricate design with their own interpretation of the home trend:
And we love this coffee table, which changes colour depending on the mood of the room:
And finally, this Instagrammer has made a feature out of their infinity table, by adding personal effects - in this case, a pair of shoes - to the middle:
So how would you go about making your own infinity table? If an Ikea table and a mirror is all you need, then we'll certainly give this DIY a go!
Nigel Ramsay from Techydiy.com told Tyla: "An infinity table is really just an infinity mirror with legs.
"The infinity mirror itself consists of a two way mirror and a normal mirror with some lights inbetween.
"People have made them from ikea coffee tables and handcrafted them from wood."
