Earlier this Summer, my wife and I attended the garage sale of a friend of hers. One of her sisters was selling yet another Mid-century coffee table in less than ideal condition. It was topped by a matching glass top that was cracked. We ended up buying the piece for $7. I brought it home and began restoration.
The first to go was the glass top. There was nothing I could do with it and I think even if hadn't been cracked, I would have gotten rid of it since I liked the look of the table better without it.
After disassembling the piece, I taped off the white tile inlays (sorry, apparently, I failed to get a picture of the top prior to disassembly!)
The leg looked like a dog had chewed it
