When I first found this table, it was scratched up, wobbly and looking pretty terrible. The shape of it was pretty nice, though. They let me have it for $1.
I carried it home and took it apart, painting the legs and rails of it, then glued fabric to the platforms of the stand. I think it turned out pretty nicely.


A better look at the fabric used.

Wow, pretty!  Did you lacquer the fabric or something?  It looks so shiny Smiley

I used mod podge and acryllic sealant to glue on the fabric and make sure that it wasn't sticky.

Absolutely gorgeous!  I never would have thought that you used fabric.

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Looks great to me!  I love the fabric you chose.  What did you use to adhere it to the table and to varnish it with?
