We were pleasantly surprised at how nice this buffet was when we put it together. It's in our dining room and we are very happy with the purchase. Would purchase other pieces in the collection. Easy to put together.

Timely, but not difficult to assemble. Looks like a more expensive piece. It is sturdy and holds most of my pots and pans in the cabinets. Drawers are small and can only be used for knick knacks, etc. I would definitely recommend.

I love this table. It has very unique designs that make it stand out then the rest. It has different opening for the drawers and cabinets. Sleek black makes its look more classy and the size is terrific. It took some time to assemble since there are four different compartments, I needed an extra hand. Overall I am very happy with my purchase. Will definitely purchase more on Overstock for the great prices and unique designs it has to offer.

It does take a long time to put together. A tip -- make sure you have the drawer runners the right way round!! The finished product is exactly what I wanted. It sits against a red wall which boasts a painting of red poppies and greenery. One small problem, which I can live with. The drawers stick. They seem to get stuck halfway opened and closed, and I have to pull/push to operate them. It's probably something I did incorrectly rather than a production flaw. I haven't seen any similar comments in other reviews of this product. Excellent value for money. I highly recommend this product.

Very happy with this cabinet. It took my husband and I only about a hour to put it together. Much easier than that other store that sells all boxed furniture! It's very solid and heavy. Looks nice in the dining room. Fit two sets of china and more in it.

husband bought this for me as a birthday gift and set it up for me too. I adore it and it's a great addition to my dining room. I always wanted a buffet cabinet, but never really searched for one. so this was definitely a great surprise. Now I'm thinking about buying one for my mom.

This buffet table exceeded my expectations. It is a very nice table which is both sturdy and fashionable. It also came with easy-to-follow instructions, and I was able to put it together myself in a reasonable amount of time. The only issue I have with it is that the holes for the screws of one door was a little askew, so the door doesn't sit perfectly level. Other than that, it has been a wonderful buy!

First, there were damaged and/or missing pieces for both items. This was eventually corrected after several phone calls and finally e-mailing pictures of the damaged pieces and descriptions of the missing pieces. Secondly, the wood of the entire items was of poor choice it was so soft if you were very careful the screws for assembling would "strip out". The style is acceptable and exactly what we expected. Do to the problems we had it spread from the basement to the great room while we were waiting for corrections so we could continue the assembly process.

Just beautiful! No problems putting it together. I rarely write reviews, but I thought it necessary to rave about my new purchase! Don't hesitate if you like old fashion, country style furniture.

I love this product but it is important to know that " some assembly required" means it arrives in three flat boxes. If my children had not been here I would have had to return it. That being sad it is beautiful and sturdy!!

This is a great, sturdy piece that you won't be disappointed with. I bought this for my daughter in 2009. They used it for a buffet in their dinning room and now in their living room to put their flat screen on. It has held up beautifully and the drawers glide out smoothly. The only small problem they have had is with the knobs on the drawers would turn and has scratched the finish. They just needed to put a washer to compensate for the length of the machine screw that holds the know to the drawer front. Great piece.

I love this buffet table!! It was exactly what I was looking for and fit great in my living room. I store my china, serving platters, and a few kitchen appliances. It is a beautiful accent in the living room as it made of a lovely cherry wood. Looks very well made, and I get lots of compliments on it. It took a couple hours to put together, but the instructions are pretty easy to follow. I did this with my husband, and I would recommend doing it with 2 people. I am so happy we bought it.

Very nice, solid piece of furniture. Be prepared to take 2-3 hours to put together. My husband is very good at this kind of stuff and it took some time. Came together well with no gaps or damages.

I love this wine rack/buffet table. Saw the same thing in Pottery Barn for twice the price. It's against a wall in our kitchen nook where we have a round dark brown pedastal table and the 2 pieces go very well together. We needed it for storage but it also looks great. Besides storing wine, we use it to store wine glasses, drinking glasses, extra plates, etc. - in the bottom two cabinets. The top 3 drawers hold some napkins, wine openers and such, and a variety of odds and ends. Be warned that this takes time to put together, and some skill. We hired a guy who does work around the house to do put it together and it took him 4 hours. Cost us an additional *** but we still saved a bunch of money (would have paid *** in a brick and mortar store plus tax and shipping).
