We recently sold everything (mostly) and moved 1500 miles to live in rural Kansas close to my parents.  Because of this, we had to re-furnish our house once we got here.  Trying to furnish a room for an 11 year old seemed like it was going to be somewhat difficult, until I remembered that my parents have an entire Quonset hut full of furniture from auctions.  So here is my first piece, it's a half circle table that I re-did for my step-son.  The top was laminate and half of it was missing.  I pulled it all off, sanded and sanded and sanded until it was smooth.  Then I Modpodged a old local map to the top and went over the whole thing with dark wax and clear wax to give it even more of an aged look.  I love it and he was appreciative, as appreciative as an 11 year old who's grown up with a crafty stepmom can be.  I love the way it turned out!

Oh, that is awesome! I love how you aged the map -- it looks like the table was meant to be that way originally! Very nice work.
