I thought that member. Kim, who said she loves the penny rugs would appreciate this project, even though it's not the "real thing".When I found this beat up little antique table, I decided not to refinish it.  Instead I painted it off-white and then painted a faux penny rug/doily on the top,trying to still give it the stitched look.  It took some fancy figuring to size the circles and balance the colors to come out even, but I am pleased with the results.

Did the same on an old stool to fit in my red, white and black bedroom.
