First, a preview! =P

My Mom and I hit the local wal-mart sized (ok... maybe it's not that big, but it's a pretty giant sized thrift store) at least once a week. We typically never find anything that great, but one day we walked in and found the best table ever! As soon as I spotted it, I stood next to it to guard it until my Mom could find someone to bring it to the register.

Problem was, it was pretty beat up. See:

But I saw the potential immediately! I opened up MS Paint and drew out what I wanted to do to the table.

Then... I set to work. It took a few days, but I think it turned out really nice.


A view of the top. I cut up painters tape and made a stencil for the spiffy zebra stripes.

More angles.

By the way... I have no idea how to play that guitar. I got it for my 20th birthday 3 years ago... and never got around to trying to learn how to play it. =/ But it makes me look all cool and talented so I leave it in the corner. Ssshhhh, don't tell. 

So anyway.... this may be my favorite project I've ever done. I love it... and with all of the drawers, it's perfect for the massive amount of jewelry I own. Wink


Edit! A lot of you commented on my clarinet lamp, and I just wanted to let you know I also have it posted on here. =) Here's the link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=294322.0

Thanks so much for the awesome comments. =]

It's gorgeous. Projects like this make me want to go hunting for junked furniture, but I never find any that are worth saving.

I love that pink.

Wow, I loved the other stuff and I love this too. Your room is so sweet, I love the colors. Lol, I have my guitar that I got for my seventeenth just sitting around too, I like to think it makes me a little hipster, maybe one day I'll get around to actually learning how to play it.

Man I wish I could find something like that to spiffy up. The only thrift store I have around here never has anything worth bothering with. Great job!

Ooh, awesome transformation!  It looks terrific... so shiny!  I used to hate pink when I was a kid, but have acquired a liking to it over the past year or two.  I even started wearing bright pink eyeshadow that is almost exactly the shade you used.  Terrific find and recon!
