Booger Table Makeover

I'm not sure where the time is going, but it's going. Before it gets too cold to sand and paint outside, I've been trying to finish up some DIY projects, like redoing this $50 drop-leaf dining table we Craigslisted from a woman we are pretty sure was on drugs (more reason to Craigslist in two's). 
It was used as a kid's drawing table and had marker smudges and, I think, boogers stuck to it. First, I gave it a light sanding, and primed the dark green legs. 
I knew I wanted to paint some portion of the table orange after being inspired by these refurbished orange tables on Pinterest:

I had some leftover pumpkin-colored sample paint which I used for the legs, and gave the top a crisp white coating for contrast.

After a couple coats of polyurethane on top and some wax finish on the legs, I think it's ready to host meals just in time for Tommie's parents to visit us during Thanksgiving week.
The once dark dining nook when we first moved here is looking a lot brighter.
