Vintage Dining Table

I started with this great dining table. I bought it at a thrift store for $34.99, I had such great plans for her. Such beautiful legs and in great shape. I was so excited to get it loaded and home. My mind was thinking all the way home. White base with a black stained top.. Oo.. No!! Black base with a warm dark walnut stained top.. Wait!!! Deep dark cranberry base antiqued with a walnut stained top.. I'm sure y'all know what I'm talking about..
Isn't she great?
I got her home to find.. Crap!! I forgot the leafs... So I sped back to the store to find. You guessed it. The leafs were gone.. Nobody knew where they went..
Still irritated with myself, I started on plan B. An entry table.. I removed the 2 center legs cuz 8 legs on an entry table is just to much. While the base was drying, my husband said now that an awkward sized table.. UGH!!! He's right
Plan C.. 2 tables
I painted both of the bases a grey green color called Pavestone. The tops are stained American walnut with the edges in black
I think plan C turned out great.

    Beautiful! I love it! The only question I have is, is this what is referred to as a "gate-legged" table?

    How did you do the top. I love this so much. Its hard to find tables that are made for this kinda space. Great space saver..
