Priceless! (sort of)

Jonathan Adler Preston Cocktail Table in croc stamped leather = $1,300

Anne Coyle Interiors Faux Snakeskin Coffee Table = $3,100

Mondo Modern Snake Skin Coffee Table = $5,800

Using the Ikea Lack Coffee Table to create this:

Priceless! (Well, actually $250)

I have to say, this was one of the hardest but most gratifying DIY projects Nate and I have ever worked on. Check back tomorrow for the complete DIY tutorial. In the meantime, enjoy more shots of the table. You can also play a game of "Find the English Bulldog" in each picture (he was being a complete diva during this shoot).
Part of Rosco's behavior was due to the fact that I kept trying to move his new birthday gift away from the table. In his defense, I am taking pictures of his new favorite play area.
