    This table is spectacular! I have a black and white one that was my grandmothers. The chrome legs are shot. I was going to restore the whole thing, but this gave me an ingenious idea! I am going to use the top (about the only thing left that does not need replaced) as the top for the island in my kitchen. It will go great with my vintage sink!
