1. Very nice table for the price. 2. Easy assembly. 3. I was pleased that the legs are more of a gunmetal color (they appeared brown to me in the pictures). 4. I would like the table more if: (a) the leg plates that attach to the bottom of the top shelf were not visible; this would give the piece a cleaner look. (b) the wood was thicker; looks slightly on the cheap side with the thin cuts of wood. 5. The table has an unusual smell, like bacon...I wouldn't recommend this table if you're a vegetarian. :) My guess is that the wood was treated with some sort of chemical. Hopefully, it will go away with time.
As mentioned by other reviewers, the table is very sturdy and solid. The wood is heavy. They were a little on the small side so I am glad that I got them for end tables in the bedroom bc my furniture in my living room is way too massive and would not have worked with the tables. I think the tables are good and would recommend. If you have smaller more modern furniture, these would be great in the living room. They do look nice and I love the grey wood.
I was very satisfied with this table. It was easy to assemble, though one of the rubber feet was missing. The table allows you to have the look of reclaimed wood without paying the high price. I found the color to be a bit more greenish than how it looks in the photos.
We purchased this end table as well as the Cross-design Elements sofa table and coffee table. We couldn't be happier with the set. We wanted something that would withstand our toddler and not be worried about it being played with. The price was so good, we took a chance and were pleasantly suprised. They look great and the "distressed" look is just enough. I did take Old English for dark wood to darken the lines and distressed areas on the wood (it was white in color).

I like the table, but the problem is I ordered another style "elements" end table because I thought it would be cool to have them different in shape and the finish is NOT the same as the first one I ordered. THIS side table has a satin/semi gloss like finish on it and is not weathered or reclaimed looking like the first table I ordered at all. :( Dissapointed... going to get my husband to sand the finish off so it looks like the first one I ordered! Other than that it is well made and fast shipping like always with overstock!! :)

I purchased this end table and the matching coffee table ti complete my living room. The ship time was fast and arrives securely packed in one box. It was easy to assemble and requires only the small tool that came with the hardware. It's modern and has the look of something from *** and *** or **** It's in the smaller side, so it's perfect for my apartment.

we thought top and shelf parts were going to be grey, but they were closer to a wood like color, so were a little disappointed. in fact it didn't really match the other distressed wood pieces we have, so we ended up staining it a different color. so we kept it, and it works now, but it just wasn't the color that we had originally thought it would be.
I was excited to find a reclaimed wood looking table for a decent price. The table I received is a nice table but it just isn't what I expected. For starters, the wood is definitely more of a blonde color and not the grey that I was expecting. Then the table itself seemed really small. That I will take the blame for since the measurements are in the description but it just seemed a little dainty. Overall it is a solid table and it has grown on me. Just wish the wood was as described and it had a little more "heft" to it. I plan on keeping it only because it's easier than returning it and it's price tag.
We ordered these table to match our ****** desk. There is NO WAY these tables are grey. Wish I would have seen the other reviews. These are more of a honey/orange color and the metal is more silver than dark grey. These will be going back. Very disappointed.
This is not grey, it's a orange/yellow color at best, reminds me more of a golden oak shade... not what we wanted at all. I tried white washing it myself, but it's still just yellow underneath. just put up for sale since i can't return.
I ordered a pair of the tables which arrived with scratches on the metal stands and the color of the wood was not grey or nearly as dark as the wood appeared in the photo. Actually the wood is blonde and very similar to the wood floor in the picture. The product was difficult to assemble (not because it was a complex process) because the parts did not fit together well and some of the screws threads were stripped trying to pull the parts together. There is definitely something that was out of dimension with both tables. I chose to return the tables.
This piece of furniture is sturdy!!!! I can't believe how solid it is. I had just a little bit of trouble putting it together. It wasn't complicated, I just couldn't use all of the nuts because they didn't line up perfectly. I'm not worried about it falling apart, though. It should be just fine. As far as the style goes, I took the advice of another reviewer and rubbed Old English Dark Wood oil on it to clean up the "rustic white" marks on it. I understand the style the company was going for, it was just a bit too dirty looking for me. Once I added the Old English, this piece looks GREAT!
The wood has a strong orange color to it, and the only thing "grey" is the metal frame. That being said, the wood could be stained and the metal could be painted to look more bronzy or black or whatever you want. It took my husband about 20 minutes to put together, some of the holes didn't line up for the screws but it was workable. Doesn't sit super level, but it has little screw in plastic buttons on the bottom, I loosened one and it sits better. I'm using this to put a turntable on the top shelf and a stereo receiver on the bottom shelf, to go next to my living room couch. Wanted the table to go with my ******* **** nesting tables on the other side of the couch, but I needed something with a second shelf. Was also considering the Renata gray 3 shelf rolling cart, but it just seemed too big for the space I had.
After assembling 3 of these (2 side tables and 1 coffee table from same line) here's what I found - the boxes arrive and they are VERY heavy, especially the coffee table. The parts are nicely packaged, but the instructions should be modified - the tables have a shelf which should be inserted after the first set of legs is attached. If you try to put the shelf in after both legs are attached, you risk scratching the metal (ask me how I know) - the bolt holes do not always align perfectly, but with a little pulling and pushing, you can make it happen. Overall, I'm very satisfied - the tables are much, much heavier than I thought, and I'm happy with quality - it took a little over one hour to assemble all 3 tables and they look great!
