The top ended up not being all wood. Apparently just parts of it were MDF and they buckled over the years. So the top was no longer flat.
So what’s a girl to do but just screw the new boards directly on top of the old top.
See the new top just sitting on top of the old top which I painted to match the legs? You can’t tell it’s not just part of the table.
I absolutely adore the avocado green paint that she used for the legs and base. It’s absolutely gorgeous!
