The box arrived in shambles, many pieces were scratched, nicked or dented. I would have liked it better for that. Assembly went ok, you had to finish some holes.
This dining set is just ok quality. When we were assembling it, we had to omit one of the screws for attaching the bottom piece of wood, since the screw hole didn't line up correctly, and we weren't able to force it in. Further, the paint finish is more apparently blue and grey than we anticipated (we were expecting a slightly distressed brown). Last point of surprise is that the rivets are not separate pieces, but they're actually already attached, and painted over to look more like real rivets. The feet are also a really hard plastic that has been leaving small dents in our wooden floor, so we'll be putting felt feet on. With that said, it's a functional piece, especially at this price point.
The piece is of reasonable quality, considering. The assembly instructions are a bit vague and it does not go together 100% solidly, but it's "good enough." The big concern is that the piece is essentially shiny black. The bottom side, where the finish isn't so glossy, does show as dark espresso... but all the visible surfaces are black.
