Look! Accordion File Side Table

We've had some fun turning magazines into tables -- here and here -- but we thought the trend might have come to an end. How many recycled paper products can be turned into furniture anyway?

Then LLBills sent us this Accordion File Side Table! Get more pictures and instructions after the jump.

From LLBill's email: I took 5 letter sized files and taped them together in a circle (I used packing tape a little sloppily, but some sort of matte tape from an office or art supply store would make a nice clean look at the seams). Now I have a spot for visitors to set down a cup of coffee, and the pockets on the side can provide extra storage for magazines, dvd, etc!

We really like the idea. It's inexpensive, easy to put together, recyclable, and looks sturdy enough for the job. We're just wondering if it could be jazzed up a bit ... beautified?

What would you do to spiff up this table?

(Thank LLBills!)
