... and you get this. I had a leftover Kanga (a type of beach-wrap/piece of large fabric) from when I lived in Africa but it had torn. I loved the colors so I never threw it away. Well.. I got this solid wood coffee table at a thrift store for about $3 but never did anything with it until I went on a Mod Podge spree around my apartment (we've all done it. You know what I'm talking about...) I ended up cutting the shapes out of the Batik fabric because I wanted it to be symmetrical. I didn't finish it with anything because I wasn't sure if polyeurethane (sp?) would affect the color. So I just did about 3 coats of MP and it's pretty durable.

here it is!
