From mirrors to coffee tables, wavy furniture has grown exponentially popular over recent years. Waves feel visually balanced - sculptural yet playful - lending themselves to a variety of interiors. Catch is, these social media famous furniture designs are often accompanied by high prices. 

But as happens so often when an interior design trend takes off, the canny creatives online figure out a way to recreate it affordably. Decor expert Tina Le Mac recently went viral for a living room DIY which offered an unexpected solution to this predicament: roof panel closure strips.

Candidly, I had never seen or heard of roof panel closure strips prior to this video. It turns out that they’re vital to metal roofing installations, filling the gap between the roof deck and the roof itself. Of particular interest to us though are their waves - specifically, eight feet of them for $7.

Tina picked up a few roof strips from her local Lowe’s after spotting a high-end wavy console table online. Although the DIY expert built her table from scratch, you can simply adhere your panel to a pre-existing piece of wooden furniture with wood glue. If the strip is a different shade from your furniture, Tina says stain it to match.
