The table leg was one of the things I was just living with. Thanks to a post on Facebook I came across the Lagun Table Leg. Easy install and much more practical and comfortable.
The floor repair was a bit challenging. The worst part was trimming the floor covering back to level as it was bulged up around the screws that were holding the old one.
Razor blade did the trick but now I had little white rings around the screw-holes.
I ended up pushing some regular white glue into the holes. Left a weight on the area near the holes overnight and then used the plastic-wood sticks to mix up a suitable color from chips and pressed it into the floor to cover.
