What should I do with this old table. I've thought about getting a marble slab for the top . It has a swag in it. We've been looking at it and think it was made this way. Would that be the case? It's very old. I would like to paint it or something!

Sorry about the light it's right next to large window. I thought it might be a way to add some color to this room.

I am not an antique expert, but I don't think the table was made with a swag in the middle. I don't know how handy you are, but Lowe's sells furniture grade lumber that can be used for table tops. The real trick would be matching the wood stain. If you wanted to update it a bit, you could replace the top with a straight piece of wood and cover the wood with sheet metal and furniture tacks.

Granite companies (think kitchen cabinets) often have remnant pieces they sell cheaply. Also, depending on what kind of stone you are looking for, you might try pool landscapers or even craigslist in your area under "materials". Landscaping companies often have the rough honed stones.
