Trash to Treasure

I found this ugly piece at the goodwill and knew that I could make something of it. I love the way it turned out and it really is my new favorite thing in the house!
Before:Someone had tried to make something of it by painting it and attempting to do a mosaic with broken glass on the dolphins, but they must've realized that they were making it worse.

A little cleaning, chiseling and some silver spray paint and voile, the perfect table to go in between my wicker chairs in the living room:Bedroom update: It is coming along nicely, I just need to add a few more things and then I will post some pix...I am getting tired of all the shopping!!!
