I don't know what everyone else paid...but I did NOT think this item was worth what I paid for it. I didn't realize that the legs and edges were just going to be wood painted silver to mimic metal, and not very well... The paint job looks terrible. Mine had some scratches and smudges here and there and I'm betting the paint will be scratched every time the vacuum nicks a leg. I could also see the nails pushing up under the paint. I've order quite a few things lately and was very happy with all of them. This one doesn't cut it.
