I thought the bottom of this table would work well as a base for something...
The top was a childs toy box.  Attached to the base (see previous picture), its now coffee table height.
Heres a side shot.
After a fresh coat of paint, I randomly stenciled numbers on top giving it a graphic look.  
I let the paint cure for a few days, then sanded and applied a poly-stain for an aged look.
Here it is in my backyard drying after I applied 2-3 coats of poly.
I added this lock to the front.
