I certainly love finding ordinary things that are discarded and giving them a second chance to make someone happy. I found this table in my basement and knew it had been down there for about 5 years or more. Time to give it a chance to move to the first floor level and let someone else claim it for their own. Sometimes I like a piece so much that I don't want to paint it and let it go, yes I know my basement looks like an episode you would see on the TV show Hoarders but oh well I haven't seen their van pull into my driveway yet.
This table was made in rough shape and the top was warped so badly that I couldnt' use it. So I hunted thru my stash (see it is functional) and found a door panel that I thought would be a great re-placement for the damaged table top. After I affixed it with glue and finish nails I primed the whole piece in flat black and then proceeded to work out the top design.
