Painting is about the easiest thing one can DIY. Some sand paper and several coats to cover the black. If you think your done, do another coat. If you go to thin on the paint a scratch is going to show the black. If I didn't have a two year old at home I would offer... barely have anytime for myself these days. You can buy Killz in white. A gallon would probably be enough, maybe two.
So long as its real wood, don't bother if this is a laminate stand.
