finally, i can post pictures.  whew!  Roll Eyes           ok, here goes...

i had an old door.  and noplace to rest my magazines and cuppa tea Sad  so, i set that door on some cement blocks and circular- sawed off a panel on each end, then sanded the edges.
i got some table legs and finials from the hardware store, along with some brackets to attatch the legs with.  
then i drilled holes in each corner the same size as the bolt in each finial, and attatched them.
finally, i painted everything.
it really needs a better paint job, but for now, it's serving it's purpose.

eww, pics are blurry.  still learning this one... Undecided

that's pretty awesome.  I really like the recesses in the door-- good for keeping rolly things and spills confined.  You could also put a glass top down, and use those recesses as display areas.

I love the loteria idea-- one of my favorite motifs, too.

Does anyone know the url for a table made out of electrical boxes?  I found it somehow, somewhere on Craftster, maybe deep in someone's website linked via their signature?

I know that's a bit off-topic, but it's table-creation oriented, and it was sooo rad, with similar areas under glass to store stuff.

Table legs are sold at IKEA (part of their make-yer-own table thang).  You can use lots of stuff-- thick dowels, heavy duty wire bent into a U shape, plywood (whole sides), stacked blocks...

Yep, that'd happen in my house too -  Shocked

I think you could make it a memory type thing for trips/vacations - pieces of maps, ticket stubs, matchbooks, post cards, brochures, etc. Or maybe inspiration for the next trip ....
