This end table was a very good value. Similar items at a trendy furniture store start around 2 times the price. The two things worth noting about the look of the table are (1) the metal is painted black and done in a way that is intended to look "stressed" or "worn". It looks good from a distance, but up close has the appearance of being fake, (2) the assembly brackets are situated in such a way that brackets and screws are visible. Thus, if you are planning to place this table somewhere where it will be viewed close up, these features will be visible.
Great end tables for the money! After a quick coat of dark bronze spray paint these looked like they were from one of those barn, barrel places but for 1/3 of the money. I'm a realtor and used these for staging a condo and people love them. Please note: shop the table around on the internet for a better price and overstock will match it.
I had been looking for these tables at another well known company but refused to pay the price they were asking. I came across these tables as having the "look" of the more expensive brand. I took a chance and ordered two end tables (they come individually - not as a set). Everything was packaged well...all parts included...glass packed well - BUT I needed an additional set of hands along with a rubber malllet to get everything "lined" up to put the screws and nuts in properly. It didn't take long once we figured out the first one, but it was a challenge and I am moderately capable. Regarding the color, they are definately a matte black w/ silver striations - I wanted more of a bronze look - a few coats of paint with good quality spray paint did the trick! I really am thrilled with how they look now. Like I said, they just needed a little "help". I also saved a significant amount of money!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was the same as site, not what I was looking for but workable

How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate
Let me just say, if one just looks at the drawing on the instructions, and forgets the actual written instructions....you have much better luck. I thing it was translated from the Chinese and therefor doesn't work.....just look at the picture and use common sense and it goes together easily. Also to the person who wrote that you can see the screws....you must have put it together upside down, cause no hardware shows.
It's sturdy and fits my decor perfectly. I love that it has a simple design that looks expensive.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Not quite as black but kind of distressed...I liked it. I thought maybe I'd touch it up, but it looks good as is.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent quality...not at all flimsy and worth the $
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Yes
This is my first purchase from Overstock. I love these tables. It is very hard to find small end tables for my small room. I am thrilled with how they look with my other furniture and how very solid and sturdy they are. I will certainly shop with Overstock again.
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.
Hello errant, the glass is clear on the Bunch Metal Glass End Table. Please feel free to contact us again with any further questions. Thank you for shopping with us!overstockcustomercare1 on May 20, 2014
Can the glass planes be removed from the unit, say, if you wanted to spray paint it?mbrown099 on Apr 6, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us mbrown099. Yes, the glass is held on with suction cups.
Please let us know if you have any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 7, 2014
Yes. It's not exactly held on by suction cups. They're just little clear rubber dots that stick onto the metal to prevent the glass from touching the metal directly. They come in sheets, and you peel off the dots.jcadair on Apr 17, 2014
