Furniture with history

This piece was given to us before Colin was born and served as a changing table for both kids. Jim removed the four inch maple rail that used to enclose the top and for the last ten years it has been stuffed with "important papers" and holding up the TV in our bedroom. Now I am going to staple ironing board fabric to the top for a terrific functional surface which will also keep me from piling things on top of it. Notice the little Slidey feet so I can move it around easily even after I fill with whatever. I wasn't going to paint this piece but this picture reveals a pretty lousy finish. Hmmmm.

Maybe you could personalize the chest/ironing table to match the new painted table legs. Those vertical lines cry out for color.

If this piece of furniture is to occupy the same room as your fabulous table, by all means it needs to be painted.

The face on the end of your machine is a hoot!
