This is just one of those ingenious ideas that makes me say, "Why didn't I think of that?" And honestly, if I hadn't read the title first, I would've had to do a doubletake to realize the base was a crafty DIY. Just goes to show a little ingenuity can go a long way!

Luckily for those that are interested in trying their hand at this project, these instructions are easy-peasy! All you'll need is 4 identical wooden suit hangers, a hacksaw (or bolt cutters), drill, pliers, clamp, level, and round glass for the top. While I'm sure the glass top is a nice touch, I don't see why you couldn't use a vintage or decorative serving tray instead, which could lend this project even more pizazz.
