    Did anyone ever discover where to purchase the work top surface. Ikea sells a Mellatorp that is 75cmx75cm but thats it. Any suggestions???

    I am also wondering about the table top size… In the post it says it is 150x150cm, but I can’t find a square one here either (Australia). The closest I can find is 150x75cm.. Is it two tabletops?

    Maybe I missed something, but how is the tabletop affixed to the wall? The description seems like part of it was cut off.
