If you love drinking soda, then you probably go through quite a few cans of the stuff.

And of course, all of those cans go straight into the trash or recycling bin. But did you know that instead of just throwing them out, you could turn them into awesome furniture? Instructables user The Science Guy sure did, and he used that knowledge to create a seriously cool-looking table with the old cans he had sitting around.

You'd better save your cans, folks, because you're gonna want one of these!

He chose this old end table and sanded it everywhere except for the top. This is where he would place the awesomeness later.
