The dining set looks great in our dining room. It is a little higher than I though but good proportions. It was easy to assemble -- only took a few hours. The screws to attach the table top are a little too long and unfortunately pushed through the top slightly. Was able to pound then out and not able to detect. The finish gets scratched pretty easily on the chairs. I have a 1 year old that likes to hammer with anything so we have a few scratchs and dents already. Overall it is a sturdy and great table for the price.
