I've had this table for two years and have been using it as a computer desk in a small space. It gets daily use and has held up and still looks great. The drawer sticks a little and doesn't hold a ton, but still useful. I would recommend this purchase.
Used as a desk and a place for a lamp in the guest bedroom, then moved to a new house and it now graces the entrance to the living room behind my white loveseat, 2 glass lamps at each end and a pair of lovely white chickens in-between the lamps, clean and sleek. Every guest loves it.
This is an simple attractive table. It was the perfect addition to our lower level mudroom entry area. Along with a wall mirror it provides the perfect place to stage items when entering and leaving the house. Very happy with the purchase.
I bought this table to use as a bedside table and it is perfect for that use. I wanted a higher table that could hold some of my favorite books as well as a lamp. As others have said, it can function as a desk too. I also purchased a second table and placed it along the wall next to my couch. That table holds my lamp along with artwork. The paint finish of this table looks like a satin finish which works for me. Thank you Overstock for such a versatile table at a great price.
Like others said, it's more matte than glossy. I own a lot of glossy furniture and this piece definitely has a different look. Plus, it gets knicked up/marked up like no other piece I've ever had. I'm actually looking to repaint the top soon, after only having it for a couple months.
