Had 3 of these tables in my basment for about 10 years.  They all were missing their originl tops.  I gave 1 to my sil and she did an awesome dragon fly mosaic.  I tiled 2 of the ones I kept.  Got the plywood out of a dumpster, tile was leftover from a table project, black river rock and extra grout from the table project.  Almost free.
Coco Chanel our cat just had to get into the photo shoot. 
Top view of river rock and tile I used.  A quick and easy project.  Used plywood for the base to pop into the table.

Cute little tables.  They were like 3 for $2.00 years ago at a garage sale.  They waited a long time for my attention though.

"Kitten" was a ferrel 4 week old kitten we rescued from a peat bog swampy area in a drought 2 years ago. I had nursed her with a visine bottle, as she was so little she didn't drink. She's an awesome cat, if only she didn't shed!!! Posted: 8:30 am on September 10th

I have to be careful or I'll get insomnia from too creative of a brain. That is partly why I backed off the jewelry design business, my brain would go all night. Not good after awhile.
