Before = Blah...
After = Ahhh!
First I primed the table.
Then I sanded the table tops with some fine sandpaper. I also sanded in between the coats of paint too. This gives the tops a nice smooth and shiny finish.
Then I painted it with two coats of semi-gloss paint.
I'm very happy with how it turned out! I also tried to de-clutter it a bit, which I'm apparently not very good at since it's still quite cluttered. Oh, well!
