I liked the look of the item and the color when I saw it online, but discovered when I opened the box that the item is not completely black like I had hoped. It looks like someone had taken a pure black item and then scratched it repeatedly with a key, thereby creating streaks of silver.
I needed a table to go between two chairs and this works great! Bottom shelf is tall enough to have a basket for storage. It's a table that can last for a long time. It can be paintable, change glass out and put wood instead. I would buy this again.
The table arrived in only two days. It was well packed. It was easy to assemble and it looks great. It has somewhat of a distressed look, but not intense. I love the two I bought and I love that I saved more than enough to buy the matching end table.
Needed 3 pieces for living room, with limited space. These fit the bill nicely and look nice in the space - this and two cocktail tables. I may order another end table. Putting them together is simple but you need to pay careful attention to the directions and not make the first level screws tight before adding the others. Mine was off by more than 1/4" so couldn't make the top screw and hole match up until we took the whole thing apart and started over.
This product is made in China with poor machine specs. Absolutely NOTHING lines up. Matching up the bolts to the holes is impossible. I was trying to hold it while my husband matched up the bolts and the whole thing whacked me in the head. I now have a black eye. So I took it to my office and had our welders weld it together. Now it matches up perfectly. But not everyone has a welder at their disposal....so I would not recommend to all.
Cheap materials, made in China. Has a tinny sound when you tap on the metal, which is hollow and scratches easily. If you are looking for an inexpensive table, however, I like the style and think it looks great, as long as you aren't expecting quality.
I purchased these tables with the intention of painting them a bronze color. It was the right thing to do as the finish on the tables was a really cheesy silver and black. The size and shape is exactly what I was looking for and now with the new finish they look great and like the more expensive alternatives.
Based on reviews that I read on here, I knew that I wasn't going to love the finish, and indeed it does look very cheap. I bought it anyway and did exactly what someone suggested and spray painted it so that it now looks like a very nice peweter finish. It was fast and easy and only added $8 to the total cost. For me it was worth it. The structure is nice and it wasn't too bad to put together.
They match an expensive coffee table that I bought from a popular home furnishing company. They look terrific together and they cost half of what the matching tables would. I hired someone to put them together as that is not my strength but the handyman had no trouble. They arrived within a few days of ordering them in great shape. I am so pleased!
