Table for Four, Please?

Our latest project:  revamping a table we found in our shed after we bought our house.  Since we've lived here, this lone table was the place we just stored Anthony's tools but when we found out his sister was eating off a cardboard box (you do what you gotta to do right after college), we looked at it in a different light.  So, we pulled it out, cleaned it off, and made a game plan as to how we might make her look purdy.  The base is solid wood and in great condition but the top was a rotting piece of composite wood. 

To make it more "feminine" for our sis and to match her current decor, we thought building a new top and painting her white would look snazzy.  I'll tell you one thing, I know my husband can do just about anything, but his wood-working skillz through this amazed me.  He wanted the table to look really nice and not just quickly put together so he took a look at our dining room table and based his plans on that. 

A couple of planks, some wood molding and edging, wood glue, nails, and a bunch of tools later, and we are successful match-makers.  Our top and base couldn't be happier together.  Here they are in all their glory.

The best part of all?  Maria will have a place to rest her elbows and when she does, she can think of her brother and sister-in-law and how incredibly awesome they know it Maria.  ;)
