I’ve got a little table which I think is just the bees knees.  Can you see it in a nursery? or family room or bedside?

Yes that’s fascinating mom, but I see you’re wearing your socks which means we’ll be going places…

So I looked at them in different light and am leaning towards


maybe with a bit more wax, we’ll see.  This table will work up quite nicely and quietly neutral with crusty old books….

You are on to something, this table would be great in a soft neutral. I saw a similar table at Goodwill this past week but I had not vision of what it could look like until reading your post.
Thanks for the inspiration.
