You can see here it is missing the support that connects the top together.
It didn't have a leaf so I decided to just connect it with a 2x4.
Here is a shot of the top. Besides being dirty, it was in good shape with lots of shine!
I flipped the table over and wiped it down to prep for painting. It is easiest to paint the base of a table or chair when it is upside down. In this case I used kilz as a primer then painted it with a white latex paint.
The white base adds just enough to make this table updated. The contrast is stunning.
Simple and easy. Sometimes less is more.
