Black & Gold

I found this hunk on furniture at the Salvation Army for $15 bucks.... And I knew I had to have it. I had first planned on painting it off white and staining it with a black stain... but the more I thought about it, I decided to keep this piece for me. So I decided to paint it black and use the Gold Stan again... So this is the before picture....

After I glazed it I tried a new for me technique.... I modge podged some cheetah tissue paper on the top... I had first bought a black and white checked (on the diagonal) but the white was too bright... so I did the cheetah and I love it... I tried to give a close up of the gold glaze but it didn't show up in the picture as good as it is in person.
Now this end table is my new bedside table..... Hope you like it.
Please ignore the navy blue curtains... I'm in the process of redecorating my bedroom...
