I got this for $20 at a yard sale.  Painted it, put Chrismas lights inside and used markers to make henna designs on paper, then topped the glass with another piece of plexiglass.
It is now our game table for cards and yahtzee!

Before:












These are some of the henna designs I found on the web to go by:

That is so awesome!  It's very pretty... especially when lit up!  Do you keep the cards on the inside of it?

That's awesome! Did you just cut a hole in the bottom of the middle chamber for the cord, or what?
