We looked for several weeks to find the right console table for our hallway. Actually bought one at a big box store that was TERRIBLE in workmanship. Took it back as soon as I started to unpack it. Found this table on Overstock the next day and ordered it (on a Saturday)...it arrived that Thursday! FAST shipping! The table comes in 2 boxes and is extremely well packed, almost no chance of damage and my table was pristine. The table itself is very dark wood, more reddish black than brown. Exactly what I was hoping for. I assembled it myself in about 2.5 hours. I took my time and made sure I was putting everything together the right way...while watching a movie, which I'm sure slowed me down too! Easy assembly, though the drawings in the instructions are quite small, I didn't have any trouble orienting myself to them. The finished product is very sturdy and very attractive. I highly recommend this table to anyone looking for a decent piece of "build it yourself" furniture. Just do it! Good selection from (and by) Overstock.com.
This is a really nice looking, sturdy table, especially for the price! Have already received several compliments on it... came packaged in a few boxes to protect the parts, which I thought was great. It did take a long time to assemble... not difficult, just time consuming. But worth it!
I was surprised how fast the table arrived. The table looks great with a modern flair. The console was made of solid wood and the color looks great with my furniture. It tooks me about 2 hours to assemble the console. I was struggling a bit with the installation of the drawers onto the console. If you paid close attention to the label on the bracket associated with each drawer, you should have no problem installing it.
Ditto just about all the reviews I read before I ordered this. 1) I've shopped around a long time. At $300, this is NOT a great deal, but it is fair deal for the finished product you get. 2) It took two fairly smart and handy guys almost three hours to get it assembled correctly. (At least we were smart enough not firmly tighten all the screws and fasteners until we were sure the finished product looked right and the last piece was in place - several after the fact flip-arounds required and one additional hole was not pre-drilled and so have a drill handy). 3) I DO like the look of the finished product better than anything comparable I've seen in the local furniture and department stores. While mostly contemporary, it is stylish enought to go with practically any decor.
I was a bit skeptical about ordering furniture online but I was pleasantly surprised. Table was delivered within a week of purchasing with all parts included. It is a beautiful high quality table unlike the other tables that I was looking at in the same price range. I could not be more pleased, will definitely order from overstock.com again!
