You need to lightly sand the table to give the paint a way to stick. Wipe off the dust after sanding. Paint the table with one coat of primer and then two coats of paint (whatever color you want.) Then take your sandpaper and sand away the paint in random areas on edges of legs, front and top to get a distressed look. Once you have an overall look you like, you can put a clear finish on it, but you don't have to. Have fun!
