I think that this just may be one of my favorite DIY projects I've ever done. I am so satisfied with the outcome and I thoroughly enjoyed the process as well. I bought this table for five dollars knowing it had potential, but not quite knowing how I was going to make it visually attractive. I had previously purchased some contact paper and I loved how it looked against the dark wood. Virtually all I did was unscrew the knobs, apply some stain, and attach contact paper to the surface of the table. I then used an exacto knife to cut the excess contact paper off, revealing a nice, clean edge.
