This is my first post!!
I took a table like this one http://pic5.picturetrail.com/VOL70/2154462/4194643/52311060.jpgthat i bought for $1 at a local thrift store and i turned it into this http://pic5.picturetrail.com/VOL70/2154462/4194643/52151763.jpg     First I removed the "shelf" top part (threw it away) and then took off the legs that were screwed on and sanded the top a little. Next I turned the top over and just drew a design in pencil and cut it out with a jigsaw (my dad helped).  Sanded again. Then spray painted everything with glossy black paint. After it dried I put everything back together and stamped the top with a flower stamp and white paint. To finish it off I put a coat of my left over wall color and a clear top coat! Hope this helps !  Its pretty simple!!

Note: The first table pictured isnt the exact on! The one i used it had diff legs (you can see) and the top didnt have the extra wood on the sides

Very nice!  I passed one of those double decker tables up on the side of the road just this past weekend.   Sad  "What would I do with that?" says me.  Now I know!  Groovy abstract table for my guest room.  Hum......wonder if it is still there?  Huh

By the way, those tables are called 'telephone tables'  You put the phone on the high part, and phone books under it - or at least that's what I did with mine.  That way  your phone books are hidden and you still have a bit of a table to put all your other stuff on

Those tables are also perfect for making planter type of things.  Cut a whole (round, rectangle, whatever) in the little top part of the table.  Then slide your cheap plastic plant pots in and voila, looks like an ivy growing out of your table. It'd really kinda cool.

Great job! I <3 the colors. The top part would make a cute little stool.
