I was looking for a teak side table to go with the 2 porch chairs that we own. I finally decided on this one and it will work fine as a table. When the package arrived, it was damaged to say the least but the "table" was fine. The package shows that this is a "footstool"; the word table is no where on the box. It looks great after coating with teak oil. I would recommend this to others but with a few words. My advise is to carefully read all information on these items-especiially the dimensions. While it will work out well for us, others might not be as lucky.
