Kevin first sanded and primed the table to get it ready to be painted blue.
For the top he bought two 2x8 boards from Home Depot. After cutting them to right length he glued them together using wood glue and clamped them overnight before cutting them to the final size.
After sanding the wood down, he stained it with 3 coats of Minwax.
And like that our empty hallway has been filled up!
