This Mesquite end table I wanted to get a little creative so I inlayed crushed glass, iron pyrite and a geode in the top and used a custom mix of stain for a red color then put two coats of Tung oil and poly for the finish. For the base I welded round stock steel to get the look of branches, the legs are black pipe that I textured with the grinder. I will have more pics on my web site

I really like the look of the twig branches. It’s a nice visual interest.

I also remember you were asking for advice for your site a little while back.

It looks great.

And I like the whiter background MUCH better.

If you want, you can also try playing around with a free photo editing program called “Photoscape”

Literally less than two minutes in the program, clicking a few buttons (like “auto balance”, “white balance”, “color enhance” and “decolor”) gave me this:

It’s worth a shot. :)
