My personal version of "Design on a Dime"

A $10 rummage sale table needed some TLC. Two screws in the base and the table was solid, but the table top - silly me thinking scratch coat could fix that.

Well, I didn't want to strip and sand the table top so I got out my trusty crochet hook and ball of string and went to work....

A bit larger than the table, but the flaws of the top are covered - crystal beads attached to the points of the doily and now it looks like I meant the edges to hang over - cost of doily less than $3.00 and 2 weeks of American Idol and Project Runway.
