This side table is beautiful and seems to be made of real wood - a rarity these days! The finish is gorgeous and overall it's very Restoration Hardware-esque at a fraction of the price. The only reason I didn't give it five stars was because putting it together didn't go exactly as the instructions said it should. One of the two screws won't tighten all the way and the dowel that helps the top and base go together didn't fit at all (I left it out). I don't think the sturdiness of the table was terribly affected, however. Looks beautiful in my living room!
