Is now a revamped end table complete with mosaic top!

I found this in a dumpster and it was once mustard yellow and had some tar on it.  I cleaned it up, restained it *it got a little hurt in my move*, and did a ceramic tile mosaic on the table top.  The stain did not take as well in some places, as it was a mess when i got it so I wish that looked better.  I also wish it was more creative but it was my first one and I wasn't sure what I wanted to do.  I think I'll do my birdbath next...

Thanks!  Grin I worked pretty hard on it and am happy with the way it turned out except for the stain. 

I would love to see your work Ayms!
