I couldn't be happier! It took a bit of time to put together but I'm pretty pleased with the look of this server. I have it in my living room to make it easier to grab some wine glasses when my friends are over. Some things to note: - It has a slight angle to the sides so it's not completely rectangular - The basket is removable so you can carry it around the house - The "vintage walnut" is a reddish brown, kinda gives it a rustic-y look I've already gotten a couple compliments since it stores SO MUCH and looks great!
I received this buffet one week after I placed the order, and it came in 3 boxes. Everything was in perfect condition, and there were extras for all of the screws (except for the ones to attach the back--those were a few short, but it didn't matter.) I set aside an entire Saturday afternoon to put it together after reading it took 8 hours to assemble. It is time consuming, but it took me about 3 hours total. I strongly, STRONGLY recommend that you only purchase this product if you have access to an electric/cordless screwdriver. If I only had a manual screwdriver, I'm sure I would still be working on it, instead of drinking a glass of wine right now! The piece looks beautiful, and I think the color is very true to the photos on the website. It's not solid gray; like other reviewers have said, it's grayish with brown undertones. I got it to match a vintage table (made of Wormy Chestnut wood, if that helps you to picture the tone) and it matches extremely well. As for the odor issues that others reported: I did smell the wood stain/"new furniture smell" when I unpacked all of the boxes, but there was no lingering odor afterwards (and I'm very sensitive to strong scents, so I was glad that it wasn't as noticeable for my buffet as it was, unfortunately, for others.) Maybe they have corrected something with the finish? This is a very attractive, sturdy, substantial piece and the style and finish are fantastic. The quality is good and it looks expensive, not cheap at all. Very satisfied!
