    Default Table with Japanese Writing on bottom - Can anyone tell me anything about it? Worth?

    Hi,
    I recently purchased this table at a garage sale for $175.00. No one knew anything about it. When I put it in the back of my truck, I found Japanese writing (I think) on bottom of it. Any thoughts, ideas, opinions, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time!

    Its production furniture, unremarkable. Looks like you did OK on it for $ 175, but don't bother to haul it to Antiques Roadshow. Use it and enjoy it

    Thank you Duane for your insight! Since this is the first decent piece of furniture I have ever bought, I thought it would be good to ask for assistance.
    I really appreciate your time!
    Thank you.

    Update: Apparently the writing is in Chinese (Mandarin) and says, something like. "Do Not Draw On".

    That is hilarious!
