I love this table! The little splotches of color are actually pieces of tile that can be used as coasters. There’s even candy in this room!

the atomic looking legs.

I love the mosaic tile here but I’m unclear about any information on it’s creation.

    I got this table at a thrift shop. It was in horrible shape. I laminated the top with blond wood veneer, bought 3 paintbriushes and stuck them in the holes that protruded up through the table from the legs and then cut out lineolium paint splotsches to use as coasters.

    The mosaic was another piece i found at a thrift shop for $5. I used it as a table top until I built the ledge you see to cover the foundation of the house downstairs. There was too much brown going on so I stuck the mosaic into the wall.

    The fish floor is all hand carved.

    How very cool that you rescued an unwanted table and turned it into a table that looks like a paint pallet complete with brushes and using lineolium cutouts as coasters that look like dabs of paint. Brilliant and beautiful!

    Excellent! Excellent! I can’t remember, is the blue S shaped thingie a phone or a radio? I remember wanting one of those. I love this whole set up.
