Trough i got lucky when i open up the box to find the top back left corner go damage. I was going to return it but the damm thing was big and heavy and didn’t feel like putting it back in the back so i figger since it in the back it not that noticeable so i bang it alittle used some wood glue and wind up painting it satin black. After that i sanded the edge around the drawer and sand down the black knob to a nickel finish. I think it look a lot better then the factory look. I’m happy with the table except the crappy package that cost this table to get damage. Cardboard box it came in was very thin without any compress cardboard edge protection to keep it from getting damage. So anyone wanting to get this table there a 50% chance your table will have damage.
It’s perfect for a foyer or as a sofa table. As mentioned in several reviews, there’s a high probability this table will have some damage. That would explain why it’s being offered for 150-200 less than ashley furniture. Mine arrived with cracks in the wood and a drawer i had to rig in order to close flush. So if you’re ok with cracks in the wood or imperfections, then this is a perfect product. It’s heavy and you definitely will not want to repackage this to ship back.
Very sturdy and looks great in my ‘woodsy’ home. It was well worth the money and looks like it cost a few bucks. Only one question though, there were holes drilled on the bottom of the legs that clearly indicated feet would accompany this unit. I did not see any in my box. Edit: i did have a little damage on the top left corner of the unit from shipping no doubt. It’s a heavy piece of furniture. Amazon gave me a discount for the damage. I wracked my brains to determine how to fix it. Returning it was not an option. The package was shredded from delivery.

The product is very nice but unfortunately it arrived with a damaged corner. Could be the shipping or the item itself is damaged.
As most, i was nervous about the quality of these tables because you never know when ordering online. They have a natural, almost rustic look to them. They are black but have a sanded look to them so they don’t look glossy and manufactured and i don’t have to worry about fingerprints or scratches. Hope the pictures i’ve included help you decide if these are right for you. They were easy to put together. Took me about 45 minutes to do by myself and they feel sturdy, not cheap. I’ll be ordering the matching coffee table as well.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Awesome table for my entrance hallway
- Way better than expected
- Perfect console table, great price!
Although it took a bit longer to receive than originally expected, the piece is great and was just as described.
The piece of furniture is great. I don’t believe in taking a star off for packaging for a piece of high quality furniture, but the packaging really was absolutely horrible. Tons of bits of statically charged styrofoam all over the apartment, clinging to walls and everything else. Tons of scraps of cardboard, etc. I like ashley furniture’s stuff, but for this thing that i took out and put together myself, they could have done a way better job of packaging it in non-obnoxious fashion. First world problems, i guess, but come on ashley furniture.
I stalked this table for about 6 weeks before we could get it. It’s as perfect as i knew it would be except one leg is 1/4′ shorter than the rest. I still love it, even with a folded piece of cardboard stuffed under one leg.
We purchased it for the office for a more decorative piece of furniture for our printer and office supplies. It arrived a day earlier than expected. I feared damage as others posted but i felt that they put adequate padding especially on the corners. This piece is 91 lbs so the likelihood of it being jostled around like a beach ball is minimal so mine was damage free. Got many compliments on it just getting it out of the box. It technically came in 3 pieces (the top including the drawers build and in tact, the 4 legs, and bottom shelf. It was so simple to put together that there are no instructions.
Awesome piece for our entrance. We looked around everywhere for something that had some length to it. I think this was about 64 inches across. Perfectly happy with the quality. Easy to set up and many compliments from all our family and friends. Will be buying more from this collection soon.
Ordered 2, they were shipped on different days. One showed up in perfect condition, the other not so great. Drawer front ripped off, cabinet door laying in the bottom ripped off the hinges. Box showed no signs of damage. It looks like it can be hit or miss with shipping and handling. No damage to the exterior surfaces so i used some glue to put it back together.
I had my eye on these for quite a while and bit the bullet and purchased two for my living room. They are contemporary, extremely solid/heavy and i love the distressed black-matte look. They arrived securely in the packaging. They were so easy to put together, took about 30-40 minutes. Be sure to not tighten down ‘all’ of the bolts prior to putting in the bottom shelf. Yes, i made that mistake but it went together fine after that. I’m so very happy with this purchase, i think i may be adding another one of their sofa tables.
It’s a really nice piece of furniture and the drawer works well. It came put together which is always nice and saves an evening of work. It was unbalanced on my hardwood floor so i had to add a few felt pieces to the bottom of two legs. But other than that it’s perfect.
I ordered this table march 4th from oj commerce and it arrived friday, march 11th. Easy to put together, just the shelf and four legs.Looks great in my front entrance. I was deciding between this table at $320 and another at $950. So happy i went with this one.
Not worth the return process when it comes to ashley furniture. However i love the piece, just wish it came without the shipping flaws.
I bought this to match my end tables from the ashley galveston line. The finish is a dark brown/black and matte. It was easy to put together, took about 40 minutes with one person. It’s very heavy and best with two people. Such great quality and definitely a piece you’ll have for many many years.
Beautiful but damaged left back corner. I would have given it 5 stars if it wasn’t damaged. I used wood glue & a sharpie marker to color it in. It looks nice in the dark foyer.
This table is a beautiful mix of contemporary and farmhouse style. I wanted something easy to clean, substantial and stylish. Putting it together was easy but this is a heavy table. Get help picking it up because it because it will scratch the floor if you scoot it. My table arrived in great condition with no damage. I actually intended to use it as a hallway table, but it is too short and wide for that. It is a awkward height for putting keys and purses down from the garage entrance. It’s perfect as a sofa table though.
Saw it in the ashley store for over $650 and they wouldn’t match the price.
Table is black but wood grain can also be seen especially when you put a light source near it. Should match nicely in most homes. Table does not move around on the floor.
I’ve had this table for about 8 months. I noticed the other day that the side panel of the table top is starting to come off. That side faces a window and perhaps gets warm. I’m not sure if i should glue it or rip it off and stain the particle board underneath. Otherwise it’s a nice enough table for the money. Sturdy and went together very easily.
