We had two KLINGSBO end tables for about a year, but the glass tops showed fingerprints, dust, and water rings far too easily. Also, the stark black and glass look didn’t match with our warm cozy living room style. So I spray painted the underside of the glass with bronze Rustoleum paint. The result is really lovely and makes the tables look more “luxe” and expensive! They definitely show less dirt. You could use any color you want to match your room, and of course, you could also paint the black metal tables. I recommend putting thin layers of paint so you can decide whether you want a more or less opaque look. Also, we use round braided SOARÉ placemats on the table shelves underneath which covers up the black flower motif and further softens the pieces.
