Another project I finally got a chance to tackle in the new spring weather.  Had this iron table stand I picked up somewhere, painted it from green to black.  Got the Chinese checkers board in a box of stuff at an auction.  Painted and sealed them both and now have a nice side table.  Might add an electric tealight candle in a holder underneath for a nice glow.

Pattern or design used: My own design
