I was nervous about ordering something with that claimed a "wood look" with a veneer finish but I'm so glad I took a chance. The finished piece looks like a high quality piece of furniture and goes great with our contemporary decor. The assembly took a little longer than I would have liked and the instructions weren't very clear for the drawer glide assembly, but ultimately I was able to figure it out. Love the finished result!
I wanted to love this and had high expectations based on the photos and other reviews. The design is great and very modern looking. However the product veneer was paper glued to particle board and not wood veneer as I was expecting. Also the color is slightly darker than pictured with more of a grey hue rather than brown/tan. Sadly I will be returning it.
This TV stand looks great for the price. I was a tad concerned on what the "manufactured wood" would look like, but it really does have the reclaimed look to it. We were considering a couple ***** * ****** tv stands as well, but are glad we went with this one especially considering it was >$$$ less. It does take awhile to put together, but the steps themselves aren't overly complicated.
