Customer Question
I have a very old...
I have a very old table with a partial sticker on the bottom that says rothert's and something about carpet. The table came from PA. it is in very good condition and has almost a leather looking texture on the top but it is definitely wood. Curved legs with another shelf below. I want to turn it into a vessel table but before I go drilling holes in it I want to make sure I'm not destroying a valuable piece.
