This is the futon table that my dad got me for my birthday, even though it is not my birthday yet. It pivots around, which it cant do at the moment due to the painting table, so that you can use it to write or eat on, or you can use it to set drinks on. Let me tell you, this will make my futon experiences X10 better. Nicole has already used it, and the reviews have been all good. Yea presents!
