    You would select the table area with the magnetic lasoo tool
    Then do an edit fill with whatever color you want, probably the wall color
    Making sure to feather the initial selection so it blends properly
    If you want let me know and I will make a tutorial for you

    Here you go, this will show you the steps to get this done, you will have to spend a little extra time fine tuning it.

    Is a reshoot completely out of the question?

    The date stamp can easily be turned off in the camera.

    Only reason I suggest a reshoot is your hand. Doesn't look right with your hand in a fist. I assume it's like that to hide the remote.

    Dropping the remote to the floor (use a pillow or something it you have hard floors or afraid of breaking the remote) would allow you to have a much more natural looking hand position.

    edit

    And if/when you reshoot it - just move the table out of the way.
