This table is the perfect size to fit our entry way, I just love the dark walnut bottom with the white top. It is just the right piece in its space, and was super simple to put together. We modified the plans a bit, instead of using liquid nails we used the kreg tool and screws to assemble. We also just used one board for the top of table and taped off more of the base and painted it white to give it the illusion of a thick top.
A simple bright white paint on top we had from painting trim around the house (3 coats)
