The first step in creating anything new is deciding on a style. I wanted something with a lot of open space that could be viewed from all angles, including the top.

They usually range in length from two to six feet and have a width roughly twenty five to forty percent of their length.
One of the most common things to use in place of a coffee table is old packing cases from early last century. Often these were used to transport tea or other foodstuffs and many still have the original labelling upon them, faded by age. These can make a stylish and surprisingly convenient coffee table and can often be picked up fairly cheaply from antiques centres and fairs.

It of course does not have actual fish, but you can choose aquatic plants you want included.
