I have this end table. It's pretty basic...black, not the greatest quality in the world. (My budget doesn't really contain new furniture right now) The top of it had seen better days...scuffs, permanent water marks, some weird spot that won't come off (I expect that would my compliments of my ever cute-destructive-curious 3 year old niece). So since I was in a fabric project mode, I decided just to cover the top. It was extremely easy...I got about a quarter of fabric and hot glued it underneath the top.
It's not animal print btw...from up here it looks like it but it's actually a little flower design. Nothing spectacular but it works. :)
P.S.Pleaseignore my half paneled walls. It's on my to-do list.
