NY Good Questions: Steps For Re-Painting This Table?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Dear AT,

I have a question about painting my little side table/landing strip (This table is from IKEA, but my version is a half-round).

I am lending this table to a friend who is using it for a gallery show she has coming up.

She wants to paint it white to match the walls, and I think that sounds great (I hate this table the way it is…)!

Do you know if there is any way to spray paint this table white quickly and easily?

Should we should sand it and prime it first, and then maybe use a topcoat? Is this feasible? Help! Thanks! Allison
