Even though the instructions recommend a two person assembly, I was able to do this on my own. The biggest challenge was attaching the legs to the top; the legs only have small starter holes (basically just little divots indicating where the screws need to go) and having to hand screw these into the top was a nightmare (my power drill didn't have the clearance to be able to use it for the screws). So I carefully drilled out the divots in order to more easily attach the legs. The table was a great buy and looks fabulous in my entry way.
This table is very nice and we are very happy with it, but it's not easy to assemble. Our unit arrived with one part broken in one of the rails that hold the drawers, but I could easily glue it back together, and as it was an inner component it won't show. My husband assembled the unit with the help of our son, and they spent more than two hours doing it, but once it was completed we were all very happy with the result. I use the drawers to keep small items like cell phone chargers, computer cables, batteries, notebooks, etc... and I placed wicker baskets on the lower shelf for a country look.
I bought this table because I needed to get my lap top and all the clutter off my dining room table. I set this desk up in a corner of my dining room and it adds a glam element while serving it's purpose at the same time. Shipping was fast. There was one mirrored leg that came cracked, but after speaking with Overstock, they were able to secure a replacement leg from the manufacturer of the table. People should take note of the dimensions and realize that this is a mini-desk/vanity. My only gripes are that there isn't enough clearance for me to cross my legs under the desk, and that I will need to find a chair or stool that is narrow enough to use with it. Otherwise, I am happy with my purchase and with the customer service from Overstock.
We are selling our home and needed some matchy-matchy in the master suite, to balance the complex space. Even though these tables are randomly distressed, both units look virtually the same on either side of our king-size bed. Because we can compare the two, we can see that there are no defects. The unsealed wood top and drawer front are not as orange as pictured. The drawer front does not look artificially distressed, as in some of the pictures. The angled bead board top has more white paint in the seams than pictured, lending to the overall distressed look. We will probably apply a clear water-base satin polyurethane to the top, to protect the wood from stains. The tables are not as heavy as we expected yet are sturdy and well proportioned. At 16 inches, these are deeper than many of the other tables available in this 30-inch width. This depth let us use (matched) lamps with larger lamp shades. If you need this size to maintain scale in your space, this table offers a flattering look. The drawer has a safety stop and slide insets - no metal tracks. The adorable antique brass knob can easily be replaced but is one of the most attractive features of this table and speaks to the overall burnished look. Our tables look more expensive than what we paid for them and enhance the comfortable, rich, stylized look of our bedroom. Even though the tables are not large, they add a touch of drama to the room. The curves add to the drama and help the table look balanced pulled slightly away from the wall. The table can be placed up against the wall, as the top does not overhang in the back and the legs are flat along the back. The curve of the front legs juts out beyond the top by an inch. This unit is suitable as an end table; entry or hallway console; night stand; small buffet in a dining area; or an occasional table to fill an empty spot or to support additional second-tier lighting. There is enough top space to display two small candlestick lamps plus a platter or framed photographs. This could also be used as a desk; there is 23 1/2 inches of clearance beneath the bottom edge of the front skirt. Caution: Some of the black stain rubbed off a bit onto our clothes and bed cover. We suggest giving yours a good rub down during assembly.
