We had one of those small (cheap) wooden round tables that I used the legs on another project. You know the kind with the wafer board top that sells for about $14? I had the circle tabletop left. Then, a friend of mine gave me some metal pieces to some sort of table. I never could quite figure out how to turn it back into a table – It clearly must have been missing some pieces. But, it wasn’t destined to be turned back into a table anyway – it was destined for a new life.
The last piece was a metallic basket with leaf like ornamentation. I purchased this piece for pennies at the Goodwill outlet and knew some day I would have a plan for it.
The process – I spray painted the circle tabletop olive green; then I glued (with E6000 of course) the metallic circle (the outer rim that you see) to the tabletop – creating a frame like setting. Within that framed setting I placed the metallic basket. It looks very cool on our wall in the stairwell.
