I was nervous spending this much money for a piece of furniture I had not seen in person, but I took the leap because I had had such good experience with Overstock's customer service in the past. The table arrived with a large crack in the top, but Overstock took care of it and had another sent out. The next table arrived undamaged. It is beautiful! The tabletop is not as rough and uneven as it appears in the close up picture, but still has that "reclaimed wood" look anyway. Do not expect absolute perfection, as the it has been made to look distressed and there are very small, but perfectly acceptable, cracks around the edge of the top... You have to like the casual distressed look. It also quite sturdy (and heavy!); this will be a piece that lasts! I couldn't be happier with this purchase!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was comparable to the picture, but the close of image of the tabletop shows a very rough "reclaimed wood" look. The table we received still looks "worn" as you would expect for this style, but is actually quite smooth.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very sturdy, high quality piece of furniture.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description was quite accurate.
I love the size of this table. It was just what I was looking for. I'm very pleased with its color. It looks great in ou kitchen.

Beautifully finished rustic look with a surprisingly smooth surface ... a tad darker in color than pictured (less white... more wood colored)... Exquisite piece. Couldn't be happier with it. (And we were delighted to discover that the top doesn't water mark!). Quicker delivery than stated (arrived within just a couple of weeks from the purchase date). Delivery people were phenomenal!
We purchased this table for our kitchen. We put modern leather cream colored chairs around it to give it a Modern Rustic look. The table is very smooth on top and has color variations from the acacia wood. A very unique piece, which we like.
Firstly, it took 2 months to get the product delivered.(1 month to ship to US, another month juggle with the delivery company) Secondly, the delivery left it at the door without waiting for us to inspect it. Thrid, The table is splitting in the middle with 4-5mm cracks. Since we didn't inspect it, we can't send it back. See the catch 22 here? Fourth, the table stunk/stinks of stink bugs. Stay away from this table and Overstock.com
The table itself is great from a style perspective. It's very heavy and easy to assemble. The only problem/concern is we received the table, set it up and within 3-4 days there were significant cracks in the table. Yes, this is a rustic style table, but the cracks are really bad. I saw this same table in a home the other day (I'm a Realtor) and the table had an even larger crack running down the middle of the table. So, needless to say, I'm a little concerned that it's a flaw in the material. Overstock was great to address the issue with a replacement and we'll hopefully have better luck with table #2.My only other thought on the cracking was the change in temperature/humidity. The table arrived when temperatures were in the teens - could the change in temperature be causing the cracking? I'm letting the second table "acclimate" to the house before assembling it to see if it helps.
This table is very heavy, true to size, and for the most part, matched the picture. It was very easy to assemble and overall is very sturdy. Our table does wobble a bit because the pieces are rough cut and do not fit precisely together. I had to fix the table by inserting a felt pad in the table leg joint to stop it from wobbling. It was an easy fix but still needed to be done. Our table's finish is much more white-washed than the pictures on the Overstock website. The table surface is very rough as can be seen by the picture.
