Button Textures

Ok, I decided to get my feet wet at trying to make an addon. I created a simple panel with a pair of buttons that, when pressed, generate a number between 1 and 100 and set it to a print command.

My question is, instead of the UIPanelButtonTemplate to create the boring little buttons, how does one go about putting a textured button there instead. I don't want to create my own graphics, I just want to use a pre-existing one...let's say the icon for the lightning bolt spell...if someone could throw out a simple snippet or point me in a direction, I'd be grateful.

Thanks in advance.

Lua Code:
  1. local button = CreateFrame('button', nil, UIParent)
  2. button:SetSize(64, 64)
  3. button:SetPoint('CENTER')
  4. button:SetNormalTexture('interface/icons/inv_mushroom_11')
