I don't have any true 'before' pics because I didn't remember to take them until after I'd already started stripping paint, so the table's pitiful original condition is a bit exaggerated. What? Plastic surgeons do it all the time. At least I didn't photograph it under fluorescent light without any make-up and tell it to frown.
I found the table for $15 at The Salvation Army Store, and a mere 4 months and 20 hours of work later... tada! The tabletop is cork on one side and chalkboard on the other, and I also lined the drawers with cork because they were cracked on the bottom. I did spare another Thomas the Train topper that came with it. Not my favorite, but I'm sure Owen will love it above all else.
So there you have it. Wait. Let me just get turned around here. There. Now you can pat me on the back. (wink)(wink)
