The top is definitely NOT lacquered. Very disappointing and looks terrible. Someone mentioned in their review of this table that the product they received didn't have lacquer on the legs. I could have lived with that. I bought it for the lacquered top that isn't- I hate it. Big regrets.
I bought this table over a year ago to use in our side sunroom as a desk for my daughter. She loves it, and it looks so nice next to our navy sofa, that I recently bought another one to put on the other side of the sofa and to ideas a desk for our son. Both kids love having their own desks, and they both look really nice. They were super-easy to put together- just add the 4 legs- and it came with all the tools and hardware. This is a great value!
This is a well-made console table that we are using for a dressing table in a small bedroom. It's a perfect fit for a small space, and with the front drawer and the addition of a large mirror, it is very functional and pretty. It was easy to put together and we're very pleased with it.
