DIY Design Ideas for about Ten Bucks ~ #5

Want to dress up your old, dull furniture.  Here's an idea for a set of end tables that I did.  I painted the old golden-colored end tables with a dark brown, high gloss, water based paint.  For the top, I used tiles (from a neighbor) and made a mosaic design with a blue trim.  The whole pieces of tile were to big to finish the edges, so I broke them with a towel and hammer and set them into place with a sanded mastic.  I finished the grout with a sanded, tinted grout.  I topped it off with grout sealer to keep the grout clean.  For the lamp, I used Rustoleum metallic gold and covered the shiny, gold metal.
