I came up with an idea for the front entry of the new condo while lying in bed last night wondering what to do with this Louis XV style lamp table I bought at auction. Estimated to sell for $600 to $800, it was a bargain at $150 buckeroos. I mean, check it out, people, it's inlaid and cross banded rosewood for crying out loud!

So what to do...what to do...?
