How to change PVC to chrome piping?

I am hoping to install a new vanity sink that has an open front (no cabinets). But to make it look great, I need to change the black PVC piping for the drain to chrome piping and also the gray hot and cold lines to chrome? The drainage pipe come from the right wall. Is it possible to somehow cut it at the wall and install the chrome piping there with some sort of tranistion? Also, what about the hot/cold lines? They come up from the floor and so would need to change to chrome at the floor. Can this all be done? Is this too much work for a DIY?

The big box store's will have what you need for this . Its not to hard if you are into some plumbing as a DIY. That chrome trap might have to look for it at a plumbing supply house

Go to any Ace Hardware store.They will carry every single peice you need to do this job and have qualified help to assist you with what you need to do this as well as advice and instruction.They stock chrome traps and associated fittings as well as the fittings you will need to transition.Big box stores offer you no significant assistance of any kind.Many plumbing supplies do not sell to the public and if they do often are not a source for assistance.

Use a 17 gauge P-trap. Lighter ones are available for less, but won't last as long.
