So you were just at the local thrift store and you saw this beautiful table but the glass was missing. You passed it up because we all know to replace the glass is very expensive and would cost you more than what you would pay for the table. Well, go back right away because here are some ideas you can use to make that beautiful table useful again.
If this is a coffee table with no glass why not turn it into a bench for the end of your bed or for in the guest room, foray, or bath. Cut a piece of plywood a little bit bigger than the base then cut a piece of foam the same size as the plywood. Attach the foam to the plywood with spray glue. Cover the whole thing with Fabric of your choice and staple to the back of the plywood. Depending on the weight you can either leave it in two separate pieces or you can attach a two by two to form braces on the table and screw the top down.
Another thing you can do also, is that if you happen to have a plastics or glass for that matter company nearby you can measure the piece that needs to be replaced and have them make it out of plexiglass or plastic.
We did this and we got the plexiglass for a song compared to the price of having glass.
A lot safer too if you have little ones or young visitors.
