I need a buffet/sideboard to sit against a wall in my dining room. there is a ledge (pass-through from kitchen) that protrudes about 4 inches past the wall. it is 35.5" off the floor. so I assumed if I ordered a buffet that claims to be only 35" tall I would have no problem fitting this snugly against this wall. Well - it's 36" inches tall - a full inch taller than the website claims. so it won't fit under the pass-through ledge and therefore sits 4" inches off the wall. it looks terrible. I really love this buffet and I was really hoping it would work out. the delivery people said overstock would send someone to cut the legs down. I was skeptical because metal wraps the corners of the legs, but delivery people said they would do it. I called Overstock - and to be fair, they are being very helpful about sending someone to come get it for a return. They offered to give me a partial refund so that I could hire a carpenter... but I told them I told know any who could cut through the iron/steel wrapping the legs. So in about a week or two I will have to miss another day of work so I can wait on a freight service to come pick it up. and when they do I will get my refund. the customer service rep did say if I need exact measurements in the future I can ask them to send someone in to the warehouse to take actual measurements. I am suspicious that they would just feed the same measurement back to me "it says it's supposed to be 35"..." but he assured me they really would get a measurement. I would have given this 5 stars but having inaccurate measurements is pretty egregious in my book. Why bother with any measurements if they're not going to be accurate?
Fully assembled and packed carefully! Just as pictured - sleek clean lines with a modern feel. Color is toward med/dark chocolate but not as dark as wenge. Love it!
I really do love this piece now that I am completely finished with it, but getting it assembled was a bit of an ordeal. My husband and I have many years of combined experience putting together flat pack items and this was one of the most poorly illustrated and guided. Also, the premounted drawer sliders which were not part of our assembly tasks were installed wrong and had to be removed and reset for the drawers to operate properly. That aside, it is a sturdy and adorable finished piece with nice quality hardwood used in its manufacture. The cherry stain was uniform, if you're into that... I painted mine a wonderful charcoal gray to add an accent color to my kitchen. I use it as a breakfast bar for the coffee maker, toaster, tea bags and filters, thermoses, etc and there is even room for some of my heavier stock pots in the very bottom shelf of the unit. The stainless steel top is beautiful and the hardware that came with the item is attractive, although I substituted my own drawer pulls to match cabinetry elsewhere in the kitchen. If I had paid top dollar I would probably be more tweaked out about the drawer construction glitch but considering it was a value price and came with free shipping I really can't complain.
I needed a small server for my small dining room. This is perfect! I especially like the stainless steel top because you don't have to worry about ruining the top with spills, plus it looks great.
