Here is a before and after of an octagon table I just recently snagged.  I painted it a mellow yellow and then followed up with a metallic black glaze.  This table is so versatile ~ it could be a coffee table, side table, bedside table.  You get the idea.

Scott Helmich has quite a few of these pieces.  Once again many different uses from serving tray to plant stand or a laptop ipad holder.  I quickly painted it in colors I already had but the possibilities are endless.
