Little Black Table with Tile Top

Something every girl needs - a little black table with a tile top. I found the table base at a resale store for $3, all scuffed up and thrown to the side like a piece of garbage with it's beautiful little legs and cross supports sticking up in the air like a baby's arms toward me saying "take me home with you." The top had been ravaged by someone digging whatever it had in it's former life for one out, and left it topless. So sad, but it was MY DAY! I swept it up into my arms, and it was heavy, paid for it and left. I stopped for a sample of satin black paint and one tile with rough edges that fit perfectly into the pre-framed area for the top at a total cost of $2. My project totaled $5, and is cute as a bug. I love it, and hope to sell it for about $25. It'a worth it's weight in gold, and has a proud life now to live.
