I purchased the black base with cherry top and I am very pleased with this table. I put it together by myself, careful to put the washers in the correct order and the little wooden leaf supporters in the right way. At first, I thought the hardware was missing but the metal hardware was in a plastic pouch taped to the outside of one of the inner boxes. The table is sturdy for a small table, attractive and I think a very good buy for the money. I would purchase it again. Thank you.
