This is a quick one. I don't have a "before" photo. It was just the base with no top. I had an end table with wobbly legs so I used the top of the table for this. It fit perfectly! Then I used old sewing patterns and decoupaged them to the table top. Then I used an antique medium to give it some patina. Then I put three coats of gloss polyurethane to seal it. Super simple. I bought the base at a garage sale for $20. I sold this for $95!
