In general, I have been very satisfied with all my Overstock.com purchases and look thoroughly at reviews before making a purchase. If you've looked at reclaimed wood or barnwood coffee tables in furniture stores and like them, you may be disappointed in what you receive. The top is very heavy and sturdy, as are the metal legs, and seems to be solid wood as claimed, but it looks JUST like 1970's wood paneling that you would find in an old living room or cabin. Most of the tables you see in furniture stores will have separate slats or have some distressing to make it look modern rustic, but this is more like a grooved system (again, wall paneling style). It looks like veneer, but it's not? Nobody will think that you have a reclaimed or barnwood table - so if that's the look you're going for you might be disappointed. It's also quite small, so make sure you measure your area before ordering! I have to admit that I only pulled out the top before putting it back in the box for a return, and did not put the table together.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Definitely more brown than grey as other reviewers mentioned
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very heavy, very sturdy, seems to be pretty well made structurally.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Color is off, and it definitely doesn't look reclaimed or authentic
