We received this product very well packaged. Pine is very soft, and the table arrived with just (2) minor dings that I found when inspecting each piece, and I don't think anyone else will notice. Many of the pieces had a filmy residue on them, but with some furniture cleaner and elbow grease, it came off easily after assembly.
The instructions were unclear with incomplete diagrams, and I think they may have been for a different but similar model. In addition to the unclear written instructions, many pieces did not have a clear front or back side. It took quite a bit of planning ahead between me and my husband so that we didn't have to tear the pieces apart, so it probably took us about 2 hours to assemble the whole thing.
The fasteners fit reasonably well in to their pre-drilled holes. There were only a few instances where we left out screws because the holes were completely out of line, and they do not affect the stability of the finished part. (We left out (2) screws in the main body, and then most of the screws in the door hinges, because otherwise the doors would ride crooked). The back did not have pre-drilled holes at all, so we drilled these (8) holes ourselves. The most difficult parts to attach were the magnets that keep the doors closed, because when you attach them directly on the pre-drilled holes, the magnets are not strong enough (they are too far away). We had to enlarge these holes a little bit so that we could move the magnets closer to the door.
The top door is not centered in the opening, but rather it rides low in the frame. So when you sit down and are eye level with it, there is a gap between the top of the door and the bottom of the tabletop. Luckily, with the dark back in place, it is not very noticeable since it blocks any light from coming through.
The only other part that bothers me is the fact that the hinges are on the right, so the doors open from left to right. For some reason it just looks strange to me.
All in all, this was an OK purchase. I needed an entry table that was taller than most, and this fit the bill. The color was very accurate, and I appreciate that the wood was finished on all surfaces, not just the visible ones.

I purchased the Normandy Tobacco console table, tv stand and coffee table all from overstock.com. The product arrived very quickly and all of the products were in great condition. I had no issues assembling the product. Although it took some time to do, it was very rewarding to finish it myself. The only thing I would say is be careful with the lock pins as they snap easily. The quality of the product is amazing. I did not expect to get this furniture and keep it for many years. I am using it for an apartment, but these products will definitely be coming with me when I get a house. I will recommend this product to any one who wants a great product at an affordable price. I have recommended overstock.com to numerous people and I have made many purchases over the past few months. I am very pleased with everything.

Attention... This is real wood. I got this for a center piece in our living room. It is very sturdy and looks very classic. I love the bottom storage areas and the two cabinets. It is very multi-functional. We store books, dvds, etc. It is worth the price. This does NOT look or feel cheap.
All the parts were present, there was a crack on the top, which we fixed with wood glue and a wax pencil in the same color. The doors were really hard to get on if you follow the instructions, we ended up taking the hinges off the cabinet and attaching them to the doors first. One of the hinges was bent, so the door would not close properly. This was fixed with a hammer and some physical persuasion. Several of the holes were not pre-drilled or did not line up. This wasn't too much of a problem as we used a power drill and the wood is pretty soft. Overall, I really like the way it looks, the wood grain is nice and the weight of the piece is great. We are using it for a tv stand for our 40". It is just the right height for this application.
Would have given it an excellent rating but upon opening the box it arrived in, noticed a piece of wood from the top was broke off. Luckily I managed to glue it back on & it's hardly noticable. It would have been great if "quality control" had checked it prior to shipping it to me. The material is real wood & looks exactly as pictured. The directions coul've been a little more explicit as to front, back, top & bottom but I figured it out by trial & error. The final product looks great!
this is one of the product you know that is really great just by opening the package... it is well packaged you feel it didnt even move inside since it was boxed. Quality is very well but be very careful cause material wise the wood is easily get scratch... once i figure out how to assemble it... though the picture instruction confused me so i rather put it without the screws down on the carpet and there started relaying on the fully assembled pictures... cause i ended up putting the door on the left on first try and picture and instruction somewhat mixed up so just looks for the holes and figure it out from there... but still the product is awesome...
I shopped everywhere for a console table for my hallway. All of the furniture stores locally had expensive price points and Overstock saved the day. The table was put together by my brother in about 2 hours. the directions have you build the table upside down which can be confusing at first, but no issues. I love it!
