“My husband and I recently moved to a smaller place and needed a smaller table for the smaller space. We liked the white MELLTORP tabletop with the MELLTORP legs as the table is visually light and was fairly inexpensive. I was nervous about staining with getting a white tabletop; however, the tabletop surface is easy to clean and has yet to show any stains after three months of daily use. We typically use placemats under our dishes when eating’ but, the times we have had spills/food droplets fall on the white surface they have clean up easily.” – Marsie, product reviewer

    Table tops are great for more than just tables. We purchased a glass table top, years ago, from IKEA to protect the top of our washer and dryer. Makes a great spot for folding clothes and protects the top from scratches.

      Great idea, Jenny! Thanks for sharing how you use the glass top! 🤗💓
