I was excited when the tables (I got 2) arrived, and as I was watching my sons play outside, I put the first one together on my front porch. I thought the table looked tiny, and was scared they would be completely out of scale with our somewhat bulky sofas, but after moving it inside, and placing with the other furniture, they look just right.
I was excited about having two shelves on the table, but now I don't think it's such a good idea. There's barely enough space to put a small basket with baby puzzles on them, and the shelves are too small to put a folded blanket in them. They are a good size fot stacking some magazines, but not much more. I'm trying to figure out what to store in them...
Overall - they are handsome. The quality is not superb, but they look detailed enough, are a decent height and size, and the color has not a hint or red in it - which I love.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Pretty close

We bought these for a small den. Based on other reviews, we thought these were going to be very small (which is what we wanted). As it turns out, they are an "average" end table size. I wouldn't count them out if you are looking for a standard end table. Assembly took about 10 minutes, tops. As I usually recommend, glue the wooden pegs in (no glue is supplied) and for an extra bit of sturdiness run a bead of glue down the edges of the shelves. The quality of the parts is much higher than you'd expect for this kind of money - I would have expected these to easily go for $XX-XXX. Color matching between the two pieces is slightly off, but not so much that they look like different tables, more like they were "hand made".
Packaging was excellent, there is styrofoam and sturdy cardboard keeping everything tightly together in the box, with thin sheets of foam between all parts to keep them from rubbing against each other.
It was easy for me to assemble by myself. the pine wood gives it a folksy, handmade look. Perfect as a bedside table but would work as a living room end table nicely also. It arrived very well packaged with not a scratch on it.

What is the width between the table legs (the non-tapered section)? I ask because I'd like to place this on top of a Roomba so there needs to be adequate width for it to scurry back under there to its base.sideoutnj on Feb 9, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
