This is a table I revamped tonight. Completely recycled. Table, cardboard, and pillows. Super easy project that only took me an hour. It's a litle big for my living room but somehow with the padded softness it doesn't seem so intrusive.

This is the table I started with. It was from a friend's college apartment and has the scars to prove it. You can see where I started to glue down some glass intending to resin over it. I left it on there so I can finish it someday.

I just cut a heavy piece of cardboard a little smaller than the inset in my table. The green fabric was 2 pillows I took apart. The stuffing was too. Stapled it to the cardboard and fit in the table. It's not glued down so i can work on the glass underneath but not have it all ugly/unfinished in the middle of my living room.

It's a little lumpy but not meant to be permanent. I'll post the finished glass tabletop when it's done in a few decades.  Wink

Came out good!!!  The top looks like it can open.  Your beginning pic of the kangaroo looks good.  I hope you can finish it someday.
