Edit: Found it!

I found a before picture of the table.
Here it is in all it's old fashioned glory

I just want to assure you that this kind of mess is not (quite) the normal state of my home but actually the result of a very good Christmas morning!

Out of the dark into the light

Just after diving in to this project I realized I forgot to take a before photo but you probably get the idea from the half painted table and the glass top leaning against the radiator.
The red peeking in to the picture was going to replace the green but as it turned out, leaving it plain white looked far better.
