First thing I noticed was that the color of the wood is brown. In the picture it seems a little more gray like. Also, we thought the table would be a little more distressed, when in fact it is not really distressed at all. Also, not sure why they call this a cable coffee table?? I was expecting cables. They are actually metal rods that are painted gray. The quality seems okay. It seems sturdy. This is one of those you get what you pay for type of deals. But for the price you can't really go wrong.
