Those must be really small, since I can’t see any evidence of them in the full shot. What’s the table going to be used for? If it’s for display, just be sure something is sitting on top of them to cover them up. If it’s for serving, use place mats, or a table runner.

Mohawk does sell graining pens with very fine brush tips that would definitely do the trick — one for the background color and one to paint in the grain — but I doubt you’d want to mess with it. I did a review of them here, and is a good source for ordering if you care to give it a go.

Other than that, I can’t think of any easy way to deal with it that would blend in with the rest of the surface and not stand out.
