Hackers Help: How to paint this Norden Gateleg table?

Bought the NORDEN gateleg table years ago and now want a colour change. I’m a newbie so below are some questions at the top of my mind:


Ikea Item:
Norden Gateleg Table in Birch

– does it require sanding?
– what type of primer is best?
– what type of paint is best?
– brush or roller or both?
– what type of finishing should be used?

Any other tips are welcome too!
