I bought this table after an exhaustive search for a lower-priced, weather wood piece. I wanted the rustic look for a more polished space. The table came VERY quickly, which I was very pleased with, as I was excited to set it up in my living room. I have to admit, when I first took it out of the box , I was a little disappointed. It didn't necessarily look much different than it did online, but the way it was worn was very...unnatural. It looked like someone just took a very rough sander to the wood pieces, and went to town. It's quite distressed, but not in the way that natural would distress it, which is how I imagined it. Granted, for the price, I can't really complain. Two negative comments however: #1-the instruction sheet says to attache the top shelf first, which I did. But when you go to put on the bottom shelf, you realize "Oh man, I should have put this one on first" because you have to practically shape-shift it to get it through the side and place it. So I had to take the whole thing about (not happy about that!), put the bottom shelf on, and then attach the top piece. #2-I couldn't actually attach the bottom piece! The predrilled screws on the bottom shelf did not align with the notches in the metal frame, so I couldn't screw it into place. It's not a huge deal, as the shelf sits just fine without being screwed in, but it was pretty annoying that it was off kilter. Other than that, as soon as I accessorized the table with some books and whatnot, it came together, and I actually love the piece. Great value, fast delivery!
