This buffet is gorgeous! I've seen similar furniture pieces that have colored paint mixed in with the "whitewashed" finish and couldn't tell what to expect from the photo but was pleased when this showed up with just the whitewashed effect and no color mixed in. The hardware is beautiful. The only downside was that the measurements on the website were wrong and it was 9" longer when it showed up than it showed on the site and we are using it as a vanity for our master bathroom so we had to move a wall to make it fit. I called overstock and they have since corrected the measurements on their site so that shouldn't be a problem for anyone else. The piece is gorgeous, heavy and sturdy (310 lbs!). Can't wait to finally pull it off the pallate and install it, I've just been staring at it in the garage for a couple of months now.

I have been needing a buffet for some time, and Hampton is just perfect. The four drawers are great for storage of dining room essentials: napkins, candles, and utensils. The cabinets are deep enough to provide space for trays, table linens, and been wine! Love it! The finish is rustic but refined, and suits my Coastal style perfectly. It arrived in perfect condition, and my husband enjoyed not assembling the buffet! Plus, the shipping cost from Overstock can't be beat.

I love the way this buffet looks, but it is not well made. When it was delivered, there was a lot of sawdust inside of the cabinets and drawers. Some of the joints don't fit together well, and there are unstained areas on the legs that show. The cabinet doors are difficult to open, and one of them is sagging. It's pretty, but I don't recommend it because of the poor quality. Color shown is accurate.
Don't expect fancy drawer guides, this is a rough piece designed and built that way - absolutely perfect. The color seems different farther away that it is up close... I was expecting it to be a bit more white and as I step back it gets that way. There is only one shelf on each side and it is not adjustable or removable - but very very solid. I was looking for a beach house like piece and this fits the bill perfectly; couldn't be happier.
At least Overstock changed the picture to more closely match the product you actually get. I have purchased numerous products from Overstock and this is our biggest dissapointment. To Overstock's credit, they did give us a discount after we complained. However, it took about a month of discussions to solve the issue. The one we recieved does now match the photo for the most part. The top of the piece looks different/ We also purchased the matching round table. I just spent several hours sanding the doors and drawers because thet did not open or close without significance force. It is suppose to reclaimed wood not shoddy construction. Hopefully the one you get is put together better than the one we got. It is also very white washed. A bit more than the pictures show. The hardware is really cheap and is very sharp in places - so much so that you can cut you fingers on the hardware. We plan to replace it becasue it is of such poor quality. Overall be aware that this is a nice piece but not well constructed for the money.
Love this buffet. We topped it with the Wine Barrel Wine Holder and it is quite nice.
