The table arrived yesterday and I'm very disappointed with the quality. It is extremely lightweight and will blow over easily, making it unsuitable for outdoor use despite being marketed "for indoor or outdoor use". The overall quality is poor and I would not recommend it, even at half the price.
The table arrived with no lower shelf. I called and asked for a replacement, but was told there were none available. This leads me to believe each table is shipped in a defective state and Overstock is hoping customers will just accept defective merchandise. Also, the holes for the screws did not line up, so puttling the table together would have been impossible anyway.
I bought this little half moon table to go in between my two chairs under my carport. I had space restraints and couldn't fit a larger table since I park 2 vehicles under my carport. I needed a table that would not stick out farther than my chairs. I also needed a table that had some weight to it since my carport is equivalent to a "Wind Tunnel" every time there is any kind of weather. This table fit the bill perfectly. The Half Moon enabled me to put it between my chairs, but push it against my house on the flat back side of the table. It's a "wrought iron" so it has some weight to it so the wind doesn't just sweep it away. And, the price was GREAT for this fantastic table. It's a whole lot bigger than it looks in the picture also which was a plus because I can fit more than I originally thought I would be able to! Bottom line, you can not beat the price for the quality of this very nice table! I would recommend this table to anyone looking for this type of table.
I bought this to put on my outdoor patio. It goes great with the furniture I already have.

This is a nice table and thank goodness I had no problems with assembly; all my parts arrived and everything lines up correctly. This table has dropped in price since I purchased it a few months ago and this is upsetting. I keep forgetting to check back on day 10 after my purchase because Overstock will refund the difference paid if the price of the item drops - a lot of people don't know this. Anyway, the item description was correct and I like the item because it is difference in shape than most outdoor metal tables. I wanted this for my back deck (to hold potted plants) and I like the fact it matches my patio set perfectly (square pattern on top and dark color). I believe it will last many years (my patio set is going on 4 years and still looks great even though I leave it out uncovered year-round). I DO NOT like the fact Overstock raises the price of items if the reviews are good and does not allow anyone to mention the price paid in their review; they also will not allow a competitor's name to be mentioned. For this reason I have begun shopping on another Internet site (but unfortunately, I can't tell you which one). :-)

This table was advertised as 28 inches wide. It would have been perfect for the space that was 28 1/4 inches wide. When it arrived, the packaging said it was 28 1/2 inches wide, which is was, so it didn't work at all. I was very disappointed.
The half moon table is perfect for my back door patio. The size and weight is just as stated. It is very sturdy and has the bonus second shelf. I love the basket weave table top. It goes with every thing else I have and holds glasses, cups, plants, etc. nicely. Very nice table.
I bought this specifically for indoor use, so I can't address the rust issues people have had. The table is attractive and isn't flimsy. The only issue I had was putting it together. Now, I'm not the most "mechanically inclined" person, but putting in screws shouldn't be as annoying as it was with this table. I'd still buy it again.
I bought two of these tables in early spring 2006 and have kept them out in the weather since then. They look just as pictured, were not difficult to put together, and they're sturdy enough. Now in their third season, some of the coating is peeling off and the boltheads are rusty. They're made of iron, they will rust. Legs are tubular, not solid. I would expect them to last a few more seasons if I did nothing, but I will extend their useful life by taking a wire brush to them this fall and then applying black spray paint to protect them. These are a reasonable value for the price, but don't expect this type of construction to last forever outdoors.
This was very easy to put together & a great value for the money. If you have a small patio like I do, this is the perfect table for it! It's sturdy too! I bought it to go along with 2 rocking chairs that were also purchased from Overstock.com. I am very happy with this table.
