How long have you had that table, and how did you decide to set it up? The one in the country was actually a simple wooden table my wife used for her begonias, and I just sort of appropriated it for my use—I slapped on a couple of pieces of plywood to it, attached a shelf to hold my brushes and paints, added some wheels and a piece of glass for a palette.
