Nice, sturdy side table (milking bench as it is called at O). Good size for small places. No assembly required. (Yea!) I use it for a side table when folks stop and visit. (Cats use it as a launch pad to terrorize one another when guests aren't using it.) Nice color, though lighter and more varied in grain than shown. A rustic look with a little bit of sheen. Had really sweet packing. Nicely wrapped with a pretty turquiose strand. Looked like a birthday gift. I can recommend this.
