I bought this table 5 years ago. It has evolved many times... From varnished top with a white painted base, to all over black semi-gloss, to a matte black and the most recent? Naked. You may have noticed this bare wood trend at Restoration Hardware, and other home design stores. I love the bare, aged, reclaimed look this table now has. It is gone from an eye-sore to a character piece for $15 and 1 hour of work.
