This table looks great out of the box. We had read the reviews that mentioned it came rusted, but did not mind. Ours also arrived with the metal parts rusted, but it added to the charm. The problem was with the top of the table, after just a couple months of use pieces of the veneer have peeled away exposing the wood below, it is such an eyesore, and beyond repair, that we're buying a different table already.
Pros; The style and the color of the table is nice. The surface seems easy to clean up. Cons: A small chunk of the table, possibly during delivery, chipped off. It seems like it would take too much effort to exchange it for a tiny chip so I kept it. The grain of the table top looks very cheap. I can only position the table in the dining room a certain way because the space where the two halves of the table join is too wide. It almost looks like a fold up table.
Bought is as a conference table for my home office. Works really nice, looks really nice too. The only thing is that the angled bar that runs under it can get in your way. So, if it's just me on one side, I tend to shift more to the middle to give my knees some room.
This is a nice looking table, but I wouldn't say I was overly impressed. The wood looks a little 'plastic-y,' though overall, it isn't bad. Set-up is a breeze, though I have a feeling that mine was a return originally that was sent out again because it was missing a few bolts, and already had the feet pad on it. That was a little disappointing.
Great table for the price! I've searched high and low, others start at $800 plus. Packaged perfectly and easy assembly. The only con is definitely the smell. Like the other review the smell is a bit strong but nothing I would knock off stars for. I would absolutely recommend this table.
Love this table!! The finish has a grey washed look. It will work great in my kitchen. Large enough to to feed a crowd. Very easy to assemble....my husband and I assembled in quickly (and without any arguments!). Highly recommend this table....great value.
This piece has a nice design and was easy to assemble. The only problem I had with it was that the metal pieces had a strong pungent odor. It smelled like oil or gasoline. We tried cleaning those pieces with different scented cleaners but it would not go away. Needless to say it was difficult to be around the piece for at least a month.
