How to Repurpose a Glass Door Into a Colorful Table

I'm in the process of creating a Mad Hatter inspired area in my back yard so my kids and I can hang outside and have tea parties and tell stories. We need a table, so I set out to make one.
I had planned to use a solid wood door, but when I found this gorgeous framed glass door at my local Habitat for Humanity store, my plan changed.
I used DecoArt glass stain to paint the glass. Legs from a roadside rescue table were added. Finally, spray paint to finish the project. Step by step instructions are on my blog.
The table is even more whimsical than I had imagined it would be! Next step: benches and chairs!

    Did you do anything to make the glass stronger? I have some window panes that I would like to use for an end table but I'm a little scared that glass will break to easily.

      @Kari Lavecchia A sheet of tempered glass over the table would add strength and protection.
