This is a beautiful table. Clean lines, nice size. The shelf is large enough to hold a variety of items for display without looking crowded. I am impressed by the look of the finish on both the blond and cherry-toned woods. Assembly was fairly easy. The only note; the pull handle for the drawer. Once screwed in, it is recessed and hard to reach. I can't quite get to it to tighten the screw all the way so the knob is a bit loose. It doesn't show though. Overall this is a lot of pretty table for the money. I am delighted with it.
