A Theory of Progress Table in Progress

So I finished sanding the A Theory of Progress Table about a month ago and have been painting it sporadically ever since. The process is tedious and requires each of the side slats to be painted twice and the top slats to be painted between 4 and 8 times in order to get them solid. The top slats also have a lot of imperfections in them and I found it necessary to paint the sides where they meet which added a lot of extra time. If I was to do it all over again I would have made the top slats removable so that I could take them off and paint them separately. I’m trying to decide if I only want to paint the long parts of the slats or if I want to paint everything. I think it would look better with everything painted but it’ll take a lot more time to finish.

I’m going to stop working on it for a while because I want to work on some other projects and I’m not in a hurry to finish it anyway. Here’s a photo of it part way finished.
