A little elbow grease and paint to the rescue.

A little elbow grease and paint to the rescue.

A little elbow grease and paint to the rescue.

I found this great work table sticking out of a burn pile.  Some elbow grease, paint, and a few fun add-ons for hooks saved this fantastic workspace from an untimely death.
