i absolutely LOVE this site! everyone is so wonderful and creative!

i have a new dilemma. i found this fold-up table, which had a broken leg so i just replaced the dowel. the legs cross over to make an "x"and they just slide together and can easily be stored. it was a GREAT trash find, only because of the one missing dowel.

i wanted to make it look great for my brother's new apartment as a Christmas present, because he needs furniture like this to help the lack of space.

he's a musician (he plays bass), majors in jazz in university, loves vintage/retro, fish, cartoons, he's a handsome/geeky, straight-gay guy.

my ideas were being limited to my brain by the lack of supplies and money problem i have. here are a few ideas:
~i have some green spraypaint left, and i thought of painting the top, and putting different poker hands on all four sides, but i was afraid that might look really cheap, so i also thought maybe i could tile the cards on it to spruce it up, but i'm very unsure of this idea.
~i was going to podgy a variety of sheet music to the top and varnish it, keeping the legs black and sleek.
~go for a fun look and put comic strips all over it like i've been doing to shoeboxes for giftboxes.

i'm very anxious to do this project, but i'm reluctant because i really don't want to ruin it. please let me know what you think and PLEASE give your own ideas, you're all so crafty!!!

cheers, <br />xox

I personally liked the sheet music table, I think it would be a piece of furniture that would be more a classic look, plus it would go easy in any decor.  Dumpster diving is something I need to do soon, come to think of it, lol!

A great memory table would be fun... get fun pics and use a varnish and get them done there...an extra plus is that now it's water proof and wipeable in case of spills...

I think the music sheet one would look great. My parents have an old interior design crafts book, and they have a page which shows you a table and a shelf decoupaged with music sheets. It gives a really good effect.Would you rip up the music sheets, or leave them whole?

i am very into music and theater. you should definatley go for the sheet music, but dont stop there. go to the store and buy cheap treble clef garland and polyurithane it around the edges. paint it black, then put more music around the legs and stuff, go insane. its soooo awesome!

Celebrate we will, for life is short but sweet for certain. Climb on two by two, to be sure these days continue.

thanks a lot everyone! i really think the sheet music would look classy. i think the ripped sheet music would look really dramatic, thanks for the idea! i'm really excited to get started...
