I was hesitant to purchase this table due to the previous review about the finish being blotchy. I was going for a more rustic look and did my best to look closely at the pictures. I couldn't see anything alarming, so I took a gamble (the price was great!) and purchased it anyway. It goes great with the décor in my house! The finish is very rustic and with a old world, Tuscan feel to my room it went perfectly. I shopped locally and a piece like this easily was going for over $****.
Not sure I would buy this again because of the quality of the finish, although size and proportions are good and construction is very very solid and substantail.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Don't think the photo accurately depicted the finish which is of poor quality and very artifical looking.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. while the piece is very solidly constructed and heavy, and not terribly hard to assemble, I was very disappointed with the finish in that it was gloppy and fake looking. I was hoping for a nice oiled antique looking wood. TO ship it back is likely very expensive, so I am left with trying to paint it after sanding off the gloppy bits, or trying to strip it.
