The table looks just as nice as the picture. It was a well made table. The only issue I had was putting it together required at least 3 hours by a handlyman. If you are not handly, don't even attempt to do it. It will frustrate you.

I agree with the other reviewers; it's a gorgeous piece and very heavy and richly colored wood, but this is a NIGHTMARE to assemble. I am on day two and hour 4 or 5 of trying to get this thing together. The table top of mine is teetering on the screws and wooden holders (not sure if it's supposed to sit flush or have this elevation to it). Last night when we were sleeping, we took bets on whether or not it would be in 100 pieces on the ground when we woke up. I will use it as a console table but lord knows I can't move it because I think it will fall apart. I can't get one draw in at all and the wood has split in many of the places where screws were inserted into. Not my best Overstock purchase and very frustrating so only gets 3 stars despite how pretty it is.
I bought this table for my foyer and it fits really well with our arts & craft style. Assembly took about 1 1/2 hours. One person can assemble most of it, but when adding the table top and shelf, its best to have 2 people.The craftsmanship is very solid and does not look like a cheap piece of furniture. The only downside I have found is the drawers are a little small, so you can't store much in them. Overall, I recommend this product. I don't think you could find a table like this for less money.
they ship this in 100 pieces- like a puzzle. takes hours to assemble. I realize they ship it this way as a convenience to them - THEY dont have to put it together and its a breeeze to ship- all in a compact box. At least make the product available ASSEMBLED for a higher cost as putting this mess together was no swiss picnic.

I have been looking for a table with these dimensions for many years. It is exactly the type of console table I wanted. It did take almost 2 hours to put together but it wasn't difficult.....just time consuming. There were a couple scratches on the wood but in places that are not seen when the table is in place so no big deal. The table was what I expected at a fair price.
After reading the description and all of the reviews I decided to order this table for our entry hall. It shipped quickly and arrived in a few days in 2 separate boxes. It was packaged very well so there were no dings or scratches. The directions are not the greatest and are pictorial mostly. It took us a couple of hours to assemble it/ One person can start it alone but you will need two people before it is done. One word of advice.. my hubby decided he would wait until he assembled the whole thing to put the shelf in. Bad decision! After it is assembled you can't get the shelf in so now he has to partially disassemble it to get the shelf in. He had a trip out of town so it is still not input yet. So when the directions show you putting the shelf in, you need to do it. Aside from the poor directions, this is a very heavy, sturdy table. I think for the money it is a very good value. Several visitors have seen it in our home and commented favorably on it already (in spite of the missing shelf). It has 3 drawers across the front which are deep enough for the dog's leash, keys, etc.

It is a beautiful table. We didn't notice the scratch until after it was assembled. We used some Old English to cover the scratch and it worked well enough. I love the table.

This table is very pretty. It would have looked beautiful in my living room. Unfortunately, it was impossible to assemble. I hired a handyman who has assembled countless items for me and never had a problem. He worked on this thing for two whole days and ended giving up, something he said he has never had to do in over twenty years. The pieces did not fit together, it was missing holes for screws and dowels, and even IF the pieces had fit, the table would have been lopsided. I now have to decide whether to leave the pieces for the garbage collector, or hire someone else who will give me a guarantee or not charge me if he cannot assemble it. I paid the first handyman part of his usual fee, and at this rate, I could have bought a fully assembled table from a reputable furniture store. Unless you are a magician, do not buy this item!

The product is pretty with a combination of veneer and wood. Took an extremly long time to assemble over two hours with an experienced assembler. The wood that required screws to be used did not have predrilled holes and the particle board split when the screw was being hand turned. The drawer assembly screws do not lay flush and caused problems with the drawers sliding smoothly. When assembling the draw slides the screws must be flush or flat to surface or will interfere with the drawer opening and closing. Pretty to look at once assembled but disappointed in the overall quaility.
I did like the first two items I purchased, but this item was a big disappointment. First of all it is "blocky" looking. Not very conforming or please to a room. To large to be a sofa table. also, multiple problems with assembly. Directions out of sequence but most frustrating was that holes were not pre-drilled as indicated. Required acquisition of a drill. Then when wholes were made to fit diameter of screws the wood split multiple times. Scream. Additionally knobs were made with decorative ring inside a ring. Inner rings falling out. Had to glue gun them. Lastly, one tool item instructed (4mm hex) was never needed. Overall, frustraing enough experience I am thinking about not ordering furher from overstock. thank-you for a chance to comment
This was the best item I have ever purchased online. The Table was easy to put together. IT only took me about 1 1/2- 2 hrs by myself and I didn't even need my husband! It is a little heavy, but that's great because it's really wood and not cheap ply board.
Save yourself the agrivation and do not buy this product. I worked in the furniture business for years and put a lot of itmes like this togethere. The directions are very poor, the fit is even worse. They have you use super glue and not wood glue, so one mistake and you are stuck. Oversock's return policy does not cover items once you open them so you will be stuck with this piece of garbage!
The assembly instructions were horrible! You need a magnifying glass to identify which piece/screw belongs where. The drawer rails should have been labeled more clearly. Please keep in mind that you will need to drill pilot holes to mount the drawer rails as the wood will split very easily. Another warning: Be sure the lower shelf piece is placed prior to assembling the two sides to the top section. Other than the assembly nightmare, this table is absolutely beautiful! Excellent quality and very stylish! So if you have patience, and a lot of extra time for assembly on your hands, this is the table for you!
This product is hard to assemble and there should be a warning that it will take hours to do. It is not well made, was scratched, holes didn't fit, others were missing. Directions were not easy to follow. It was returned and I will never order from overstock.com again.
This is a nice table and the engineering is amazing... it fit together perfectly, however it was a serious chore to assemble it with basically instructions that were look and see from the pictures. It took almost four hours to do the job and you must be attentive and follow the instructions (looking at the pictures) to the letter or you will have a problem. I glued all the dowel plugs with Elmers. Make sure you put the bottom shelf in before the legs or you will be taking it apart.
