I bought this item after having Talisman coffee and end tables for about 4 years. As before, the packaging was sound, shipping excellent, and quality very good. I was able to assemble the table with no real problems in about 3 hours (including a couple of drink breaks). Now my dining room is complete.
We purchased this table as an accent table for our upstairs hallway. It is a beautiful piece of furniture for the money. The color is rich and allows us to display photos and other family artifacts. It is the perfect size to be an accent without hindering the walkway. I highly recommend this table.
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.
