The table arrived yesterday - and I knew immediately upon opening it that I was not as pictured. The table is in long planks - kind of like a picnic type table - I was expecting it to be weathered and distressed looking but the planks are all different colors - one plank is very light wood - the next is medium wood and the next to dark wood - I did not like the striped looking effect. *** beware if you don't like it - it will cost you big bucks to send it back - there was nothing in the fine print that I saw about the me having to pay a return shipping charge - I did think it would be easy to return something I didn't like but not the case. I do want to add - the table is very heavy and well made - I gave it high points for that - it's just the top construction that is strange to me - why they would use different colors of wood on the top instead of distressing one kind of wood - I don't like the look at all. I've seen similar distressed tables and none of them had the different color planks - so take that into consideration and also the cost and hassle to return.
I ordered the medium brown finish. At the time of ordering up to the time I am posting this review, the photo shown that is clearly labeled medium brown is not at all what I received. I expected a medium brown wood with a distressed, whitewashed type of finish, as shown. I received a dark brown, shiny table with zero wash or distressing. Clearly based on the pictures provided by overstock, it appears the lime wash table is a lighter, blonde wood with a whitewash and the medium brown is a darker wood with a different albeit distressed wash. I contacted overstock, explained the problem and sent pictures at their request of what they sent me. They did arrange pickup of the table at their expense and shipped me a limewash table instead. That table is darker than the blonde one in the photos but lighter than the medium brown shown in the pics. Despite asking multiple times, overstock never clarified if they did send the wrong table or if their photos are wrong. To be safe, if you want a distressed look as I did, get the limewash. The medium brown one was pristine and dark and shiny...not good if you're running a household with active children, where cottage and industrial chic is a decorators best friend. Both tables are very sturdy and a good value....and despite the lengthy delay in finally getting the right table, customer service was helpful and respectful and I am glad I made this purchase.
I looked for a long time for a table & was very worried about ordering online. The table is very heavy & sturdy. The color is beautiful. The only assembly required is bolting the legs to the table. I ran into missing piece for one of the legs & had to call overstock customer service. They offered to send a replacement table but that would take another week to arrive. I was having a dinner party that evening so I needed a functioning table. I was then advised to go to a hardware store & find the proper size washer & bolt as they could not ship the missing miss. I was able to find the piece I needed for the table. The table is very heavy & you need at least 2 people to lift once the legs are on. If you don't like rustic then this is not the table for you.
First of all, it arrived very quickly. Less than a week to travel by freight across country. The delivery company scheduled a window to deliver and were on time and stuck around to let me open the box to make sure there was no hidden damage. Assembly was a snap just bolt on the legs. One side rail of the table was a little out of line. Most people probably wouldn't even notice, but I'm pretty particular. I removed a couple of brackets on the bottom, pushed the rail into line to my satisfaction and re-attached the brackets. Perfect. A little bit of wonkiness is part of the charm of the table, but I'm happier with it now. As far as the look of it, it's great. It has some alternating darker and lighter planks with not too over-the-top distressing and sanded white and (much less) lime green finish. The top has some subtle wavy-ness, but is still mostly flat and smooth. The construction is very solid. It's really heavy. I needed help to flip it after attaching the legs. Overall, a great purchase. Love this table.
Please listen to the other 2 reviews that warn about the medium brown color. I made the same mistake. The picture labeled as medium brown is actually lime wash. The medium brown is a polished dark wood finish. Look up other Hamshire furniture pieces and you will be able to see what the medium brown color looks like. I just contacted Overstock today to get it exchanged, they said they would contact the warehouse to have the picture updated. Love the table, but it is just not the color pictured. If you are looking for a rustic/distressed wood finish, get the lime wash.
Ok, first off I wanted a real solid wood table to meet the demands of my two boys, none of this veneer furniture that is sold in the local furniture stores would do because they would soon be marred by scratches. I wanted something that would last and if scratched, would add to the character of the piece. When I received my table the corner support was unfortunately broken and it did take another 3 weeks to get a replacement but the end result is a heavy solid table that doesn't scratch like the others . Since I saw two of the tables I can say that no two are alike , the first was more lime washed and perhaps had a more level surface. It is a unique tough table that should stand the test of time.
The 72" Hamshire lime wash table is great! The only problem was that it took weeks to get the table from somewhere in California. This could be improved Overstock! Once again the packaging was excellent. It took more time to unpack this extremely heavy table than to put it the legs on. The table meets all my requirements. It is lime washed white rustic Accia (sp) wood with a slight hint of green. This is one of the best quality buys that I got from Overstock. Oh, put the table is now on sale.
When this table arrived, it had a few dark/walnut stained stripes running down the length of the table. I didn't expect that the wood planks wouldn't match each other, now I have a striped table. It is heavy and sturdy but the surface is wavy and not good for resting wine glasses on.
I owned this table for a few years, but when i sold my last house, the buyers wanted it. So glad to know it was still available. Very, very heavy but easy to attch the legs. We can put our drinks on it without coasters and is already distressed, so scratches do not show.
This table is gorgeous and exactly what I wanted. It's super heavy, really well made, has the perfect amount of "shabby chic" for my beach house, beautiful coloring, and I've gotten a ton of compliments on it. I got the white washed color and it's perfect. It will arrive double boxed and extremely heavy to carry. It took 2 big guys to bring it upstairs to my dining room. The legs were easy to install but I wasn't able to flip the table upright because it's so heavy (had to wait for my boyfriend to get home and help me). The quality of the wood is great -- it's reclaimed acacia wood.
