Habitat for Humanity Trestle Table

What beautiful weather we are finally having here in WNC!
The warmer,sunnier days have finally given my husband and I the opportunity to work on the antique trestle table that we picked at Habitat for Humanity several weeks ago.
We have sanded down the top,and applied the first coat of satin polyurethane. The wormy chestnut wood was so dry that it is drinking the poly like water.
I can't decide what I want to do with the base of the table.The black paint is really dead and chalky looking in some places but I do not want to repaint the entire base as the corners and edges are wonderfully worn. I love the beauty of time worn pieces,maybe I will just leave it.
What would you do with the base?
