The table top must look something like this:

 

 

So we can see that the overall dimensions of the table top will be

 

\((19\frac12+1\frac34+1\frac34)\,\text{inches}\qquad\text{by}\qquad(22+1\frac34+1\frac34)\,\text{inches} \\~\\ 23\,\text{inches}\qquad\text{by}\qquad 25\frac12\,\text{inches} \)
