This table looks very good online, but it is smaller in person than it appears online. When I received the product, it was packed in styrofoam and covered with packing material so I couldn't immediately see the defects/imperfections in the wood. I just proceeded to assemble the table. The stools were very easy to assemble, so I assembled those first. The table, however was a pain in the rear and having another person to help me balance the table while assembling it would have been helpful. But, no such luck. Three hours later, I finally got the long table screws to align and lock with these nuts that were a nightmare to deal with. If it weren't for those darn nuts, I would have been able to assemble the table in about 30 minutes max. Once the table was assembled, I carried it over to my small apartment kitchen and began to dust off the styrofoam and cardboard dust that remained from the packaging. Once I cleaned up the table, I noticed some chips, slight bubbling and scratches on the table. Also, the stools don't seem very sturdy. This is a good for an occasional table, but not for everyday use or for overweight individuals who might break the stools. (Just sayin'.) Yes, this is a good price for the table and stools, but I think the quality is just too cheap for all the work it takes to assemble it and considering the fact that it's not very heavy duty, so you must be selective on who you let sit on the stools.
