Zebra Coffee Table

I'm in a Zebra sort of mood I guess.  I just recovered This Seat in some gorgeous pink zebra material and now this coffee table is all Zebra'd out.  This isn't your normal zebra stripes but more like a zebra pelt.  I love the look of it but I must admit I'm not totally done with it so if you click on the picture (but I hope you won't) you'll probably see the imperfections.  What? Me? Imperfections?  I know, it doesn't happen often but this was done completely by hand.  No stencil, no tracing, completely me.  So if you hate it, just mosey along and hopefully I can impress you with my next project.  Or not.  But if you love it, or even like it, please let me know  Thanks for looking! (BTW, I know I'm not good at staging.  I'll have to work on that cause I know that coffee tables don't usually go in hallways.) :)  ***Also you may notice the two lines going down both sides, that's because the sides flap down....so cute!

This one makes me smile too!

fabulous, I just love this ideal I would get a piece of glass cut to size to place on the top to protect the finish. You did a wonderful job...
