Table Makeover

I have been in bed with the flu, the whole household has had a very nasty virus, so I havn't had much chance to get things done, here is what I managed to get done before I retired to bed feeling very sorry for myself....
Here is a before picture of a piece of junk my husband brought home from the auctions.....I thought it was awful....
A horrible orange pine unit....before I decorated we just put our toiletries on the large window shelf in the bathroom, but now I want to tidy up a bit ...thought I had nothing to loose with trying to perk this piece up...
Cracked out the old faithful...the chalk paint....
Couple of coats, a sand and a coat of wax and its all ready to go and doesn't look too bad....

Fits in with the rest of the decor.....untill something better turns up....
