This is a great coffee table, and we've been very happy with it. It fits in perfectly with the family room of our country house. Nice color and the nailheads go well with a rustic look. There is ample room for storing games, books, etc. inside, and the table provide plenty of surface space when closed. I just wish there were a way to prop the lid when you open the chest.

I absolutely love my cocktail table! If anything, it looks even better than in the picture. It is very sturdy, and looks more expensive than it costs. It did take a while to put together, but everything was well-packaged, and the directions were easy to follow.

I saw this product on Overstock and newbie would look fabulous with my new living room. Well, it does. It was slightly challenging to put together but we did it. The top piece was cracked and I was very disappointed in this because it was not usable. I went to Overstock and they were terrific. They sent just the piece we needed and did not make me send anything back (which was good because it would have been very difficult to do that and I might have just given up). When the replacement top arrived, I finished assembling the coffee table and it looks terrific! I'm quite pleased.

I was excited to find something as cool as this for a coffee table and it arrived okay, but the box was a bit dinged up as the package is heavy. Inside, it was perfectly fine and the tons of foam protected everything. After I started assembling a few problems cropped up that left us really dissapointed for the price. The metal base attaches to the trunk itself with bolts, however one of the bolt holes was too off-center, so one bolt didn't fit in...and I wasn't going to make another and possibly splinter the wood. The other challenge was that the guide holes for the spring hinges of the lid were drilled in the wrong spot. After fighting with it for a bit and couldn't get it to close properly, we just left the spring hinges off and just left the regular hinges. The regular hinges had pre-drilled guide holes as well, but since the screws are so small they don't really fit as tight as you'd like...so some are a bit loose. Since this is just a coffee table and we won't really be open/closing it a lot it's not too big a deal, but the quality of construction left a lot to be desired...but then again, it's made in China...
I love this peice. The nail head trim is a nice touch and gives it a ton of character! This style would fit in almost any living room. My husband even wants to steal it for his man cave in the basement! Thanks o.co!!

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very heavy, feels like a good quality.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate. I didn't measure my space so it is my fault completely, but this is larger than I imagined.
I received the table and it is beautiful. High quality, very sturdy, but I was not anticipating the chaotic assembly when I opened the box. I loathe styrofoam and the unit is smothered with sheets of styrofoam that flaked and left "styro snow" everywhere. The instructions are clear, but you will need two people to assemble this piece as the lid is very heavy and it is not possible to screw in the hinges, while holding the lid on top of the unit. It should be labeled a bit better to indicate where the screws go as it was almost impossible to see the screw holes. I'm waiting for assistance to assemble the lid. So far, it looks very handsome in my living room; low and wide and sturdy. Assembled, it is a great piece, but be warned.....you will work to put it together.

I have owned this table for about a year and love it. Unfortunately, every time I clean it with just water and a paper towel, the finish comes off. The top of the table is already looking worn and bad and I've hardly had it. Is there a paint or treatment i can buy to make it look new again and to protect it? Please let me know! I want this table to last a long time. Thank you!tapdance888 on May 11, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I have mine in a living room that we never use, so I simply dust mine and that's it. I don't think this table is high enough quality to be in a family room that is going to get lots of use, ie food, drinks, feet etc.carolyn372 on May 23, 2014
Hello tapdance888, We would recommend not using water on the table to prevent the finish from further coming off. You may also want to try a furniture restorer product like "Old English Polish" to help restore the finish. Thanks for shopping with us. Jennifer Eoverstockcustomercare2 on Jun 1, 2014
Can the top be propped all the way so that it stays open? Does it slam shut or is there a safety feature to ensure no slammed fingers? The images show it only opened a small amount only.atilemn on Dec 11, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us atilemn. This item does have supports on both sides of the lid so the lid will stay open however there is not a safety feature that stops the lid from slamming shut.
Please let us know if you have any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 15, 2013
