This console came and it was a dark mahogany. I loved the style and it does look like real wood, including the top, but intended to send it back till my husband put a big scratch on it moving his TV back off of it after trying it out. I figured I couldn't send it back and it didn't match anything so I stripped it. In my re-staining process I discovered that the top was not solid wood. If my re-staining of the top doesn't work I have a friend who can probably make me one but this has turned into a real hassle. I gave it a 3 because the console, if you're OK with the darker color is absolutely beautiful. Once I have all my problems solved it will be beautiful for me as well. I don't have it finished yet or I would send a pic. if I can get on later and add to this I will do so.
There are SO easy to put together -- you just attach the legs. I think it's just 6 screws total. I was expecting to have to build it practically from scratch. So that was the first nice surprise and the second is that these tables are of great quality! I was not expecting that, either. The finish is applied very evenly and the drawers open smoothly (and have tons of storage). I ended up getting the mahogany color, which initially I was unsure of because I have a black dresser and didn't know if they would match. At first, I was going to get the "midnight" (blackish) tables, but since they are evidently not a true black but somewhere between black and gray, I decided to go with the mahogany and am glad I did. They have enough darker undertones in the finish to complement my black dresser. As far as the hardware on the mahogany tables, if anyone is confused as to the color, it is a dark bronze. Some of the pictures of the mahogany tables looked to me like they might have silver hardware but it is definitely more of a bronze.
