The inspiration for this table came from one I saw on this site built by renners
There are a lot of “firsts” for me on this project, and I struggled a bit but managed to get it finished without too many “design changes” along the way. The material used is red oak & walnut, with a wipe on poly finish. The top is baltic birch covered with a laminate so any spillage of nail polish, etc would not damage the finish if I had gone with a solid wood top. The center of the top lifts up to reveal a storage compartment for her “stuff”, and a 16”x20” mirror so she can get the paint on straight..LOL. The top is banded with walnut as are the tips of the tapered legs. Her room has a leopard theme, so the brown laminate & walnut matched the colors, and I covered the seat cushion with a leopard print to try and tie it all together.

There were a few things I would have done a bit differently, but all in all it serves the purpose, and she loves it, so that makes it a succes.
As always comments and critics welcome.
Happy new Year everyone.
