I purchased this Bombay side table at an Estate sale. It was old, brown and ugly shinny. I was in a crazy mood the day I worked on it and chose GF Royal Purple and Lamp Black with an embossed alligator print on top. I decided that you couldn't get a crazier combination but I didn't care because I hardly paid anything for it. To my surprise someone wanted to purchase it and put it in their home. Yeah, their are still people in the world that enjoy color!
