Garretson Storage Box Coffee Table in Espresso Finish – Looks great and has plenty of storage.

Took a couple hours to put together. Especially the top piece at the end. Overall, though, it’s a nice, sturdy piece of furniture.It was a little more dark than i expected. It kind of looks black if it’s by itself. That’s my only complaint really. Plus i honestly didn’t even use the glue that came with it because it wasn’t in the instructions. The hardware that you put it together with is more than enough support.

Is made of sturdy materials and is easy to put together. This table comes well packaged, is made of sturdy materials and is easy to put together. The instructions are bit vague but as there are not that many parts, it’s not hard to figure out. I don’t know why it says you need an allan wrench and a wrench, you just need a screw driver (power drill makes it much easier). I was expecting a wheeled slide on the top drawer but instead it is a wooden slat slide, this actually works very well and can be switched (as i did) to bring you table top closer to you instead of opening away from you. The ‘feet’ this table came with are. Not the best, you’d probably do fine without them, i bought some small 110lb baring ball caster wheels to fit on the bottom to give this thing a little mobility, the leg end wood is heavy sturdy wood, should work.

Decent enough but assemble instruction is a pain. Pretty decent coffee table but comes with pros and cons. I could have deducted 2 stars for this product considering the hassle i had to go through to assemble this product. I almost gave up assembling this and was about to throw this in garbage. However i gave 1 more shot the next day and it turned out to be much much better and hence deducting just 1 star. Here are the pro’s and cons. Pretty solid after its completely assembled. Strong enough and you won’t feel that it will break easily. Storage option comes really handy and the sliding top gives you even more storage. Not something that will easily slide away with little force. Coming to con’s which can be a pain for many people:1. The assembly instruction is pathetic.

  • Lots of Storage, looks nice on the outside. Some bad design decisions and horrible instructions
  • is made of sturdy materials and is easy to put together
  • Fills the need well.

Looks great and has plenty of storage. . The table looks great and did not take especially long to put together. My husband and i took about an hour and a half. I would not recommend trying to put this together by yourself as there are steps where multiple large parts need to be lined up in order for the cam bolts and wooden pegs to go in correctly. I took off one star because i wish the top had a light magnet that would keep it from sliding so easily. Just putting your feet up on the table causes it to move a little. The table looks great and the storage is wonderful.

Amazing coffee table dreadful assembly. Not sure how useful my review will be since it appears like i bought the last one for now. Anyways, i love the coffee table. The main reason i bought it was because it has lots of storage. You can store a lot of games or books or whatever in the top section, which is really handy. In the lower section, you can store smaller items such as manuals, remote controls, etc. Another thing about this table that is quite useful as well is that the top slides towards you. This is pretty nice when i am eating on the couch and want to slide my food closer to me. On the actual table itself, i give this a 5/5. The reason i’m not giving this a 5 stars however, is the assembly is incredibly difficult.

Lots of storage, looks nice on the outside. Some bad design decisions and horrible instructions. Purchased this coffee table because my dog kept stealing the magazines and remotes off our old table. It was very hard to find a decent looking table with a lot of inside storage (for a low price). Let me start off by saying it is doing the job i needed it for. I’ve seen a lot of people complain that their was to much packing material in the box, let me just respond to that with was your product damaged in shipping?. I’d assume the answer is no. This probably had to be one of the best protected furniture products i ever saw, while probably not the best for the environment, i did not end up with any broken pieces. Now lets talk about the directions, they are horrible, here is my list of complaints with the directions:1. Page 1: tools required for assembly: allen wrench(included) , phillips screw driver, wrench.

Assembly wasn’t too difficult, but it took me about 3 hours to do on my own (i’m not very handy and i’m petite ). Would take far less time if i had another set of hands to assist. The storage this coffee table offers is unmatched. I currently have 2 throw blankets, all of our remote controls coasters, beer cozies, and all of my husband’s gaming controllers and headphones inside. When we lounge on the couch, i put the extra throw pillows inside as welli definitely recommend this.

Overall, this is a great product. . I use it as a serving station for guests. 2 oz capacity cappuccino mugs in the left bottom drawer (you have to use mugs that are 3. 5 inches high or shorter, but i still wanted them to be large – cappuccino mugs are perfect), a variety of teas in the top left section, plates, utensils and napkins in the bottom right drawer, and blankets, remote controls, tissues, etc. Pros:beautiful colorstorage is very convenienti love having a serving station for guests that is right in front of us while we spend time. Guests can have tea or food as desired, rather than feeling pressured to get it before sitting or waiting until asked to add more hot water to their tea. It looks like a very nice quality piece of furniture, if not inspected too closely. The open top can be used as a table while eatingmy guests love it and it’s very convenientcons:the top doesn’t slide smoothly and catches/sticks. The pieces come with the rollers for the drawers already attached. The bottom right drawer sits lower on the right side of the drawer than on the left and the whole drawer is lower than the left drawer. It’s annoying and it looks like i put it together poorly, but it came that way. Disappointed with the design flaws.

I bought this for my den because i needed a sturdy coffee table that i can store things in. I was replacing a glass top coffee table – which, btw, glass top coffee tables are a very bad idea with young kids. That said, i needed something nice and sturdy, because while i don’t encourage my children to sit and stand on the coffee table, it happens, and i don’t want anyone getting hurt. This arrived very well packaged. Seriously, i spent the first 30 minutes removing everything from the box. I’m not complaining, all the drawer pieces were in their own box, all the nuts and bolts were in their own box and everything was well labeled. And nothing was damaged, which is what really matters. The ups had a sticker on it that said it was over 70 pounds.

I really like the way it looks in my living room. Very highly functional and very chic. I really like the way it looks in my living room. The drawers and top compartment are roomy enough to hold many of my fiance’s video games, as well as all the controllers for the tv and multiple game systems, and a throw blanket. I gave it four stars since it was a bit confusing at first to put together, and the pieces were a bit too heavy for me to move on my own. My fiance had no problem moving it on his own though, and he got the hang of how to assemble it according to the directions pretty quickly though, so it wasn’t that big of a deal. I would definitely recommend this coffee table.

Can’t go wrong with this coffee table. . Quick delivery and very easy to assemble. Kind of smelled a little funky for a week or two but that went away. Very hard to keep the surface clean but we live in northern california and are living in a dust bowl. Contemplating having a glass top made. Still all-in-all this is a great product for the price and looks great in the tv room. Demand coasters and oven towels if you use for eating. Hey it’s football season, stuff becomes airborne.

This coffee table was bought to replace a huge square one that covered twice the area and had no storage, and it works wonderfully well. The photo shows the drawers facing out but my son assembled it so they face the couch for easier reaching, and they handily hold magazines, all the remotes, and all of the other clutter these tables seem to accumulate. I took away one star because one of the eighteen little bolts holding it together had no threads, rendering it useless. We called the company and are still waiting for one to arrive, but using the table and it works all right without it.

Bought this for my wife for our anniversary. Shipped out fast and was easy to put together, about an hours worth of time. The storage on the top of the table is so spacious. I’d like to add that this table acts as a table that has a hidden door that thieves would look over and ignore to push open the top. The two drawers are just so convenient and really compliments the table. I set the table to slide so that it opens past the drawers so that way i can put my feet on the table without it sliding open. I read some reviews that upset some buyers that they hated the fact that they would rest their feet on the table and it caused the table to slide open. Again i just flipped it to avoid that.

Beautiful, solid piece of furniture, but. The only few negatives we have is that one of the inside pieces of the drawers came scratched and they aren’t labeled as well as they could be. The instructions weren’t the most clear either. And like other reviews, you will see any and all fingerprintsoverall, we love it and it’s just what we’ve been searching for.

Love the true espresso finish. Love the true espresso finish.Goes great with the ‘furniture of america more to tv stand 72’.

It was mostly really easy to put together. It was mostly really easy to put together. It took only 2 hours by myself using a drill as a screwdriver; however, 45 min were spent trying to screw the tracks on so that the top could slide open/closed. All of the other little parts were attached to the main boards, so i’m not sure why they left these two tracks for customers to put together, or why the screws were so dang long that they didn’t actually fit in the pre-drilled holes. I ended up using shorter screws that i already had at home.

    It’s a descent coffee table. It’s a descent coffee table. Only issue is after you push open the top, you have nothing to really grab to close it. Basically have to grab both sides to pull it closed. It does have a lot of space tho.

    Great table, a little tricky to assemble. It is nice and sturdy, and it provides lots of storage space. I took off a star, because it can be difficult (and heavy) to assemble if you are not accustomed to putting your own furniture together. I wouldn’t recommend this to people who have difficulty following instructions, but all in all, i think this is an excellent product.

    This was a heavy box when it arrived. I purchased this as my husband had loads of stuff on our last coffee table which had not storage. With 2 drawers and the sliding top, he had to look for things to put inside. This was a heavy box when it arrived. I live on the top floor of a 5 story walkup and could not get the box upstairs. I had to open it up in the downstairs hallway and make many trips to get all the pieces up. Took a while to put together, but it looks great. It was worth it just to be able to see the top of the coffee table once again.
