Quick update.... I stained my work table a gorgeous celery green. Here it is in place in my craft space.
It was looking a bit plain so I decided to dress it up a bit.
Decorative paper in stripes and floral motifs were applied with good old Modge Podge. It still needs a coat or two of polyurethane and I need to join the two pieces with some hardware. Aaaaah over 9 feet of work table, actually 9.92 feet. That's over 3500 square inches of work area. I'll have better close-up pictures soon.
