Painting melamine can be a little challenging but it is possible. You will need to sand the table lightly using a fine grit sandpaper in order for the paint to adhere, then you will need to prime it either using an oil based primer or a primer made especially for melamine. Once it is primed and dry, you can paint it using melamine paint.

There are several other brands available. Be sure to ask for a stripper for melamine paint and be sure to tell them you are removing it from wood. Be advised that the wood finish may be damaged and will require refinishing. If the area is not too conspicuous, you may be able to accomplish this with a small spot treatment. Worst case, you'll have to refinish the entire pillar.
