I got talked into this hunk of sofa table by the lady running the garage sale. Boy it had issues! Ones that required my husband's handymaness which required some sweet talking.... I spray painted the metal poles silver and the the wood got sanded and repainted black. We won't mention the wood chunks required for the bottom so any lamp that might be set on top didn't go skidding to the middle with a crash. FYI: The vertical divider in the middle is a mirror.
