aunt barb gave me a table that had been passed around by my cousins. i'm the fourth one to use it. as i loaded it in my truck a month ago, both dom and angela said i couldn't bring it back. i think i'll keep it. it was oak on the bottom, ugly faux-wood formica on top.
yes, the paintjob is my doing. (ok, that's not entirely accurate. so thank you, msz. picasso.)
