I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this table for the price. I have paid more for lower quality, that is for sure. It has a strong hinge that holds the top open, a nice feature. One caveat: get out your measuring tape and try to get an idea of the actual size. To me, it seems larger and more squat than in the photo. This is my own fault, of course, for just going by the photo and not using a measuring tape to get a better feel for the actual dimensions. Measure twice, buy once!
This end table is absolutely gorgeous- very classic and stylish. It makes a very rich statement in a room and also gives you storage. Can't beat that! It took me about an hour to put it together- I would suggest maybe some wood glue when you put in the dowels. The look is stylish and will go with transitional, traditional, west indies, bombay, etc. You won't be sorry if you buy this peice. I am taking 1 star away only becasue it is pine and mdf- not the good stuff! But having said that- i am not sure that my friends will even pick up on that when they see it. I ordered it on a Saturday, and it was on my front door step on Tuesday. So glad I ordered this end table. Also- one reviewer said it was larger than what they thought it would be, but I did not find that to be the case. It was perfect!!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The end table is perhaps a little darker than what might monitor showed, but in the description is says espresso- and that is truly what it is. Compliments my other espresso pieces in the living room.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Let me first say that this is definielty not a high end peice of furniture, but.. it certainly is well made for what it is - it is made out of pine and mdf.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Right on. Perfect
We were hesitant, despite the excellent reviews. Yet, once we assembled it (easily) & placedit alongside our sofa, I immediately went back online to order another! This is my 3rd Overstock furniture purchase and I do believe I've become a permanent customer!
I actually bought two of these trunks so I could use them (side by side) as a unique coffe table. I just didn't put the legs on so they wouldn't sit so high. These were very easy to put together. I had an electric drill so it was easier to put all those screws in the wood. I also didn't bother with putting the hinge for the covers on. I'm very pleased with how they look. It's nothing you can find in furniture stores!

Please tell us about the quality of the product. great quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? spot on
Absolutely beautiful! I just finished putting this together and it was a breeze! I used a small 6" drill on all the screws, so it only took me about 30 minutes to assemble. The table is much lovelier than I imagined and the quality is excellent. I had been hemming and hawing about purchasing this table for at least 6 months and I'm so glad I finally did. My only regret...I should have purchased this months ago!
I have a leather chair and ottoman with the nailhead trim. Since they are such a large scale, most tables I've tried to pair with them for a nice grouping ended up looking cheesy. But this table is the perfect complement. A couple of pictures hanging above the chair and a gorgeous lamp on the table and a couple of accessories make my living room look like a million bucks! It went together pretty easily also and is very sturdy! I'm really impressed with it for the price.
So as I mentioned before the color is a dark espresso, darker than the picture shows, but that was what I was looking for read other reviews that stated that so went ahead and ordered it. Needs assembly took my husband about 15 minutes, it looks really nice so worth the money, I love it.
This product is very nice better than expected. Thick wood , great design and hinges are very nice as well. Look of greater value compared to cost. Very satisfied. Although you have to assemble wasn't so bad, Its something I hate doing. Everything marked easy to follow. Just do as they say do and you will be fine. One person can put together as I did, but if a female, two people would be fun.
Hinges screw holes marked on wood. They make it easy with pre-drilled holes. I think you will like it as much as I do and I like nice things and this piece work.
Really a nice looking piece. Very well constructed, true to the color and looks much more expensive than the cost. When you go to put the last piece together, the top, you need two people. Impossible otherwise.
Thank you for your inquiry, mariannette. The legs are solid wood and the rest is made out of MDF and pine veneer. We hope this helps. Thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 1, 2014

Read my review. It's a little more complicated than this and will require a trip to the hardware store, but still REALLY easy to assemble.scott2sing on Nov 4, 2013

The description says the colour is Espresso (black), but in the picture this looks like a walnut finish (brown). Which one is it?tanuja241 on Aug 30, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello tanuja241, This table trunk is beautiful! Based on what reviews on this product say, the finish is in fact espresso and it does look similar or a little darker in person. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 5, 2013
It's definitely walnut. Looks great though. I love it!slgiberson on Sep 10, 2013

How difficult is the assembly? Tools required? Estimated time for a novice? on Jul 3, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This item does require light assembly, and any tools needed to put the item together will come with it. Also, it does depend on the user, but I would estimate that it would take 10 minutes to assemble it.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 9, 2012
It was easy to assemble. I'd say it took about 45 min to an hour by myself (you're not going to get this thing together in 10 min!!). It comes with a small screwdriver/wrench. If you have an electric screw gun, use that... it made it much easier than trying to put all those screws in by hand!walleyeamy on Apr 1, 2013
