We've posted about concrete block coffee tables before (see 12 Tables Made with Cinder Blocks, Economy Edition ), but we hadn't seen one with a glass top until we spotted this one in the airy downtown showroom of LA fashion designer  Shaina Mote . Here's how to make your own. Photography via The Dreslyn . Above: Located in downtown LA, Shaina Mote's loft is outfitted with simple furniture and is flooded with natural light.  Above: The rattan Alseda poufs are from Ikea. Above: Nothing is too fancy in the showroom, including the houseplant pot wrapped in Kraft paper. Above: A Standard Cored Concrete Block (8 by 8 by 16 inches) is $1.78 from Lowe's. Above: A 15-by-28-inch Flat-Edge Tempered Radius Corner Rectangular Glass Tabletop is $91.99 (other sizes available) from Fab Glass & Mirror. To protect the glass from scratching, use either clear rubber  Stick-It Glass Protective Pads  ($4.97 for a pack of 20 from Amazon) or  Self-Stick Furniture Felt Pads  ($5.49 from Amazon). For another low-cost DIY project with components sourced from the hardware store, see Alexa's Elevated $15 Hardware Store Clamp Light.
