The table arrived three days after I ordered it, which was much faster than I had anticipated. My husband and I spent a little over an hour putting it together. The assembly was easy and straightforward. The worst part, however, was screwing all the screws in by hand. The quality is pretty good and the finish is quite pretty. It's dark brown with a hint of red. My only complaint is that the table top is not one solid piece, but three pieces that are butted together. We didn't get the top pieces butted together tight enough, so there was a slight gap in between the pieces. The table is in front of a bright sliding glass door, so the light that came up from under the table illuminated the gaps. There was no way I was going to take the entire thing apart, so I climbed underneath the table and covered the gaps with black tape. The gaps are hardly noticeable now. I'm not totally wowed, but I'm still pleased with the purchase.
