when renovating our bathroom we finally managed to take out that silly Jacuzzi tub, transport it down to the terrace and replace the old flowerpot pond there. All it needed now was a new surround covering the weird shape of it. Marine plywood painted with 2K boat paint, Lino print for that baroque feel, and two waterproof solar LEDs found on sale.

Resulting in a laptop/side table height adjustable from stand up to sit down in arm chair.
I must have been overwhelmed by my baroque urge in the process because this was the initial design:
