A solid wood dining room table for $39.00 at Goodwill.
(Sorry, the legs were cut off before I got to a camera).
It was painted green so I tried roughing it up a bit with sandpaper, not much luck.
Oh well, I primed and then rolled on three light coats of high gloss black.
The center seam doesn't bother me, but you could very well use some filler and sand.
Turned out just fine!
Happy as a clam with my repurposed dining room table! Now let me put the rest of the room together and you'll see how well it works in the center of the room...stay tuned!
