One junky, formica topped modern side table ($6.99) has been redesigned three times.  For the complete reincarnation history of the two tiered table, see my post on Curbly. The felt upholstered project was done for ApartmentTherapy-Chicago. Take note that I still have one tier remaining with which I can create yet another ottoman.

It's the table that keeps on giving.
