you could chalk paint or distress paint it here are more ideas
Thank you for your comments
If you're not afraid of color, why not give it a good spray paint with a funky color to match your decor? Maybe Tiffany blue, or yellow, fushia, or whatever YOU love.
Thanks you for your comments
Paint it add mirror to top.
Paint? Additionally could you possibly post a photograph to better see your situation?
Having a visual might be helpful to be able to offer the best guidance .....to a help find the best suggestions or potential solution for your update rehab project.
Ok, I too have been horrified to see a furniture flipper to chalk paint a Drexel triune golden mahogany chest. I love my mcm triune set as is....
Personally paint can enhance but ruin a prized mcm furniture collectible. Best wishes on your rehab adventures.
Maybe paint it like marble
Thanks for your comments
Please what ever you do dont let this cool table fall victim to chalk paint! I know alot of you love the country / crafty type of style. I love , appreciate and respect mid century modern . ( I feel I'm a minority on this site because of it )
The best way , ( at least I think ) would be to sand it down and refinish it to a lighter , darker or a natural finish with a few coats of semigloss polyurethane
Yes , to paint ..very cool . But no stencil or flower designs ect...
Keep it a solid color on top . Semigloss or hi gloss would be perfect. A retro color like turquoise would look awesome !
The legs could be left in natural wood and just use a natural oil like coconut for the leggs to bring out the wood grain and make the top stand out.
Painting the legs the white , black or the same would work too. Maybe give them a fun contrasting color too.
Cheryl , I hope this helps you out on redoing you table. I'm sure what ever you choose ...it will turn out nice . And wishing you the best on all your projects .

Thanks for your comments. As I understand this table from the description I have been given. I agree that chalk paint or country crafty will not work.
