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!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? as shown
Please tell us about the quality of the product. great quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? spot on
These ended up being really attractive. They did take a lot of time and patience putting them together.I enjoy shopping through Overstock because I can get a full spectrum of the styles of things that I am interested in. Many choices.
My husband assembled the table. When he stood it up it wobbled like crazy. Since he's an engineer, he brought up his tools and found all four of the legs are different sizes. They vary by 5/32 of an inch, a considerable amount. The body is square and pretty but the uneven legs are a big disappointment. We are either going to have to use washers or take the shortest leg and make the others the same size. Thank God for my husband or I'd be putting match books under it! Ugh!
I managed to assemble this table/trunk by myself, but still haven't attached the inside latch/lever that allows the top to close slowly on its own - cannot figure out exactly which end of latch attaches to lid, and which attaches to back of table. i emailed the company though, and did receive a reply and a number to call for assistance! Haven't called- I'll get the latch on- will figure it out when I need to. :) This is a very nice looking table - the board in bottom of table only holds up to 20 pounds, so nothing really very heavy can be stored inside trunk, if using trunk for storage. I thought all the nailheads on the furniture would really make it the centerpiece of the room ( and didn't want that) - the table is actually very understated in design, is not "busy" -looks great but not overwhelming in the room. This is for the side-table, (can't speak for the coffee-table size trunk which is larger). As I said, I managed to assemble it solo, but help would have been best for me. Electric screwdrivers would also help, I had to enlarge some of the holes with manual screwdriver first before placing certain pieces/bolts/screws. The wood is a darker brown than pictured - actually blends even more closely with other wood colors in our home. You'll probably be quite satisfied with this selection. I am happy with the purchase, love the table.
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

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
