Judging by the other reviews, I appear to be in the minority here, but I was really surprised by this when I opened up the boxes. The materials are not what they appear to be. As another review mentions, the legs are actually wood, although they do *look* metal, even in real life. That feels a bit weird but fine, whatever. The real problem is the tabletop itself. That 'weathered' look is painted on and perfectly uniform. Even that little groove in the wood they show in the detail (making it look cracked) is cut in uniformly on two of the corners. For some reason that really bothers me---a piece of plasterboard painted to look like reclaimed wood. The table is sturdy and guests seem to find it attractive, but to me it just looks cheap and phony. Definitely not what I expected for the price. For $*** I could have gotten an quality table actually made out of the materials it looks like it is made out of.
This was my first order from Overstock, and I was a little intimidated by the "some assembly required". It only took me a few minutes to attach the legs by myself, and the necessary tools were included. It is exactly as pictured. Love, love, love the table.
I am delighted that I purchased this table. The packaging is not very sturdy for such a heavy delivery. The table top weighs 80 lbs. The first two table tops I received were dented and scratched on top. Finally O sent a 3rd table top and it was perfect. The description says that the materials are wood and metal. It appears from the picture that the legs and underframe could be metal; however, there is no metal unless they are considering the screws to attach the legs are the metal parts. Easy to assemble but you will need two people to flip the table after attaching the legs. Overstock customer support is outstanding, as usual. For my purposes the table is a 5 star. It shows well. Everyone who has seen it likes it. To early to say how well it will hold up but it will be lightly used at my house.
This table is absolutely beautiful and was very easy to put together. I do wish it was a few inches longer, I have six large wicker dining chairs that fit but are a bit tight. The top does not seem to leave water marks or scratch easily. Very nice table for the price!
I thoroughly like the look of this table. Unfortunately, it arrived twice with a severely cracked top. The second time, wasn't' quite as bad so we kept the table and agreed to repair. Overstock was gracious enough to discount the table but it did take some elbow grease to fix. I do love the look of the table and get compliments every time some sees it. It was very heavy and probably should have been packed and shipped as two separate pieces.
This is a heavy Table that looks exactly like the picture. It is wood with imprint of wood detail on top with cracks that are supposed to be there like plank tables. The legs are wood with wood made to look like metal and it does. We're very happy with this purchase. It shipped in strong and padded boxed (2) one for table and one for legs. It was in perfect condition and very easy to put together.
Keeping the price in mind, and the fact that I'm using this on a covered patio, I am very happy. In case it matters to others, I would like to point out that the 'metal' base is really wood or mdf painted to look like metal. But the table is very heavy and substantial looking. The top does scratch easily, but to me that will add to the distressing, so that doesn't bother me. It arrived very quickly and it was easy to attach the legs. But as others said, it will take two people to turn it over. I just got it today, and love the look! It will work perfectly for our covered patio dining.
We love this table - we love it's sturdiness and the way it's built, but the top of the table has NOT worn well with 3 children. In order to get it really clean it needs to be cleaned with something other than soap and water, but the other products I have tried have stripped some of the finish off the top and now I have a spotted table top :(
