Crib Coffee Table

Here is a Coffee Table I made awhile back, using an old washstand for the base. Different but nice. The top is a thick piece of pine that I had lying around, and once I added a crib game on top, my lovely wife worked her magic, painting a nice scene on the top. Amazing what can be brought to life using a wee bit of ingenuity.
