RE: what to do about rusting out table top...

There are products that stop rust called rust converters. I have used them, they turn the rust into primer and then you can paint. I think if you sand a bit and knock any really weak part out around the holes you could then use a rust converter then paint. Use a rustoleum type rust preventing paint and make sure you treat top and bottom. I don't know how big the holes are or if they would prevent you from using the table.
Good luck and let us know what you do.
