Well, she's done. Safely delivered to her new City Chic home in NYC - her new owner loves it.

It was a tough job but the end result was very satisfying.
Water damaged beyond repair
My trusty heat gun
My wonderful husband took over after I burned myself with my trusty heat gun.

Much better.
Thanks to all of you hometalkers who talked me through doing the top! I'm happy with the result.

    As much as I love old wood furniture, you did a beautiful job creating a new look. Sad to see "her" go. :) Thanks for sharing.
