Step 3: Base Coat
Just paint over the whole table, we'll paint the runway/taxiways over the top of it. I put a little over two coats of white on the table to make sure we couldn't see the wood grain beneath. Save a bit of paint to touch up the background after the runway is painted on. You know, just in case.
Stay well ventilated, and use eye protection if you choose to strip an existing finish off!
