I am working on restoring an old Charleston style round table that had a painted base and a solid mahogany top. I am looking to refinish the base but am not sure how to get that flat farmhouse style look. I will probably need to go with a darker color like a flat black or dark green. Does anyone have any advice on how to do this?

This table needs a ton of repair work done beforehand but I want to make sure I am prepared for the finishing steps.

Thank you all for the ideas. I looked at milk paint but cannot find a source locally and need to finish the table by the end of the week. I came up with a multilayer-ed satin finish that might give me similar results. I am going to use coats of different colored paint and then sand through the top layer and distress the legs a bit. After that will put a polyacrilic clear coat to add some durability. Will this look ok?
