I love, love this idea for a coffee table, from Design*Sponge:
I also think, though, that it might be a little short to fit in most living rooms as a coffee table. So, why not stack another case or two on top? You could stack the cases at an angle, attach them with a little glue and some screws, and viola! You have a coffee table or side table of appropriate height, and stackable storage.
