Absolutely love this table as a makeup vanity. I read the past reviews, noted that the table would be scratched up upon arrival, and bought some spray paint ahead of time be prepared to fix it. Except, since i really wanted a gold and glass table to begin with, i used metallic gold spray paint. Makes it look about $200-$300 more than what i actually paid. Only manufacturer issue, which was really annoying, was that the table legs were super bent. I needed to forcefully shift them into place (and hold them) while tightening the screws. The whole process, with painting them, took 3 hours. For a better setting of paint, wait 24 hours to assemble. Touch up the paint as needed before placing the glass, with the side you’re painting facing up (so you don’t get drips along the edge.
Its a nice product for the price, i would have loved to been able to afford something more expensive but for my budget it works for the simple,clean. I will probably spray paint the frame bronze for the complete look im going for.
I just want future buyers to be clear. If you do not assemble the second layer first the holes will not. It’s not a flaw but great assembly. Also think logically this is a table made with metal and glass. It’s pretty freaking sturdy but if your planning to use it as a tv stand just check the weight and dimensions of your television first and use your common sense. Spray paint covers the scratches if you find them hideous like i did. Overall i do think $100 is a bit much but i’m assuming the glass makes it more expensive. It’s not bulky and being able to spray paint it offers a lot.
It does what wanted it to do. Easy to put together (i did it alone. I read that holes don’t line up. . They don’t unless you pay attention to where each leg goes. They are not interchangeable). Have the bunch tables as bedside tables and bought this as a vanity for a small space. Top shelf holds cosmetics and mirror with room to spare. Shelf below holds laptop, kindle, phone for charging plus perfumes, dish for keys and still a little space left. It is inexpensive but i don’t think it is cheap.

I think people have some pretty unrealistic expectation on a $100 piece of furniture. Overall this is nice for the price. I did not have issues with assembling. Do not finish tightening all the screws until it’s together. There is a silver brushed finishes on the metal, i don’t mind it as i have an expensive coffee table with the same finish effect on the metal legs. I bought this as a plant stand and it’s holding up well. It wiggles a little and i wouldn’t over load it with anything to heavy (like don’t put an expensive 60 inch + tv on this thing).
I needed a decorative yet functional table for my bedroom. This table was “sturdy enough”, had a low price and looks a lot more expensive than it is. I have some books and art on it which works fine but i would not use it for anything heavy like a tv. It was easy to put together by myself and took me about 1 hour. I gave it 5 stars for the cost, material quality and ease of putting it together.
Already owning the matching nest of tables i knew ahead of time that this would be a solid sturdy piece. It did not disappoint, the metal does have a worn look which some people were surprised by. It was wrapped well, as each piece is individually wrapped, so there were no scratches. Took 20 minute to assemble, and the glass is tempered, i find that to be an important feature. Works perfectly for the area i needed it and the price can’t be beat.
The color was a bit antique looking so i spray painted a glossy black.
I’m eyeing it in my kitchen, and the distressed black paint is perfect. Easy to assemble and delivered fast. Exactly what i was hoping for.
My son put it together for me in about an hour. It really adds class to my living room.
This is a well thought out product, and the longer i have it the more i appreciate it. Great addition to a small living space where every piece of furniture counts. Am using it more than i originally expected. I also have this company’s bakers rack, and it too has proved immensely useful and holds up to daily use. This company seems to make very good stuff.
This is an elegant little table to put in an entry way or where you need just a little space. The glass tops adds an elegance and sturdyness. The assembly leaves much to be desired. The color is absolutely terrible. It looks like a scratched up return. That’s where taking it out in the yard or driveway and paintingit a statement color is needed and even strongly encouraged. I painted ours with a rose gold and it looks so chic.
I bought this table for my enclosed back porch. The black metal isn’t truly black. After we put the table together, i sprayed the metal with a satin black paint. Took about one can for the whole table. Now the table is real black and looks a lot more expensive than the finish that came on the table. The size of the table is perfect and the style is great. The table was well packaged.
I had ordered 2 bunching tables a couple of years ago and i use them together as a coffee table in front of the couch. I needed another narrow table along a wall and just recently ordered the sofa console table. I was a bit skeptical due to some of the reviews. However, i am very satisfied with it. It’s not an expensive piece of furniture but i still like the look of these tables. I heeded the many advice comments on #1. Putting the bottom shelf together first and then the top shelf. (put together upside down) and #2. Do not tighten the screws until it is all put together. I put it together myself but it would have been easier with another pair of hands.
Love the console and it was very easy to assemble. Looks nice and is extremely sturdy. Bought it for my bedroom but it is pretty enough to put in my living room.
This is nice, exactly what i wanted to put my small flat screen tv on. The bottom shelf is great for the dvd player. It’s a great length and narrow–doesn’t take up too much space. Easy to put together, just handle it carefully when unpacking and assembling it–as you would expect since it’s glass. Some customers thought it didn’t look good that there’s a subtle ‘brushed’ look to the metal–i think it’s fine. I like that it doesn’t look like it spray painted total black. It’s sturdy enough for light use, the weight recommendation in the listing is accurate. Thanks to the very helpful reviewers on amazon.
We absolutely love the way this table looks in our bathroom. I wasn’t sure if the finish would make the table appear chintzy, but it doesn’t. Our floor is porcelain and has a rustic barn-wood look. This table goes perfectly with it, and adds elegance to the room. Wasn’t sure if it would be too low in height, but it is just right. Highly recommend this table.
It’s not fancy, but it works well in our living room beneath a red indian wall hanging. The red has a more blue undertone than the picture. It’s not a fire engine red and is very pretty. Our living room is small and it doesn’t take up much space, literally and visually. I would be cautious about buying it if you have small children, as it’s not a heavy, really stable piece and could be pulled over. As others have said, do not tighten the screws until it’s all put together. It’s easier with two people and the directions are clear.
It looks exactly like the photo – maybe better – and is the exact right size. It’s modern and sleek – and super stable. It was a breeze to assemble. For the price, it can’t be beat.
Easy to set up, but would recommend having a friend there to set up together. There were stickers on the corner of the glass, but they were easy enough to get off.
Easy to assemble if you follow instructions clearly. I missed a step but caught it early on and it still only took me about 25 minutes to build. The instructions are illustrations so you have to pay attention to detail. I love the distressed look because it goes well with the ikea furniture knobs and contrasts well against the gray couch.
I purchased this metal sofa table to display model diecast airplanes. I am very pleased with the table. The construction seems to be good and the size of the table is perfect for my upstairs game room. The assembly was a breeze also. The table is not too bulky as not to take up too much space in an otherwise limited living area which i have upstairs. The price is very affordable compared to other display cases and i like the combination of metal and glass as opposed to cheap particle board cabinets. I am thinking about purchasing another. A good buy for the right price.
