101111-acrylic.jpg For those of us who didn’t take plastics class in High School, working with acrylic might be a new skill to learn. It isn’t as tricky as you might think and this is a great project to get you started. It only required a few supplies, all of which are easily gathered from your local hardware store.

We checked in with Shelly Leer over at Mod Home Ec and she’s been busy whipping up this acrylic side table project for Indy Star.

Shelly is the mastermind behind many projects here at Apartment Therapy and this one is no different. Although she’s a master at upholstery, we’re loving the look of this clean and clear side table without a hint of fabric in sight.

You’ll only need a few supplies from the hardware store to get you started and if you aren’t into cutting the semi-circle legs, try leaving them as regular squares. Careful though, there’s a good chance you’ll be addicted to acrylic work soon as it’s easy to do and relatively painless. Check out more details over at Indy Star.
