Pros

One nice lady said that her husband purchased the round dual drop leaf dining table with the natural top and white base finish. It fit perfectly in their little breakfast nook. Four people can be seated comfortably when both leaves are extended, but they can sometimes fit five easily as well. The table shipped quickly, and it actually arrived a day earlier than they thought it would. Although this probably has more to do with UPS making on-time deliveries, it is something to note. Some of the reasons for this customer’s docking one star out of 5 for this table in what otherwise is a positive review include the fact that the legs weren’t as heavy as they would have liked and one of the leaves did not open flush to the tabletop. This can be a bit irritating.

Furthermore, although the packaging of the table was very secure, in order to accomplish that, they stapled strapping to the bottom of the table. The staples were made of soft metal and broke off when they tried removing them, leaving sharp shards behind. This would not normally be an issue since it’s on the bottom of the table, but small children might scratch themselves on them. Overall, this table is made of solid wood, is pretty in color, is the perfect size for the right space, comes at a good price, and is easily assembled.

Another customer waited an entire year before reviewing this table! They said that it is a great table and they waited so long to be able to review the table after having used it for a long time. They purchased the unfinished one and stained it themselves with a gray wash. It absorbed the stain perfectly, and they received so many compliments on the table, and people even thought that they paid $500 or more for it!

Finally, one happy customer said that this table was everything that they expected it to be, and perhaps even more. For the price, she was a little worried that it would not be as high quality as it is. It turned out to be very good value for the money. It is just as described online, and they are using it in a small dining area that is small so for every day uses, it works well to have one leaf down and have the table up against the wall. This table is highly recommended, and they were especially happy that they never received anything packaged as well as this table was.

Cons

Now for the negative reviews! One customer ordered the black table to be used in their eat-in kitchen. When it arrived, they had no complaints. The packaging was fine and assembly was simple. The size was fine for two people to eat comfortably and for four people to eat in an ever so slight pinch. Over time, however, the table has not impressed them. The hinges on the leaves (which were already attached upon arrival) had been screwed in improperly, causing one of the leaves to be forever angled downwards. This makes the table look really cheap and flimsy.

Another problem with the table is that the tabletop loosens over time. This is due to the nature of the assembly and is not easy to tighten. Also, the 4 legs are very light and flimsy-looking. Finally, the table comes in a matte finish that is prone to smudging. It can be difficult to clean this because wood cleaners such as Pledge don’t seem to work, but more powerful cleansers alter the finish and can leave stains of their own. Overall, they said that you get what you pay for with this item so they suggested that you spend the extra cash if you want a table of higher quality.

Conclusion

Most people really loved this little table. It has two drop leaves that are perfect for small eat-in kitchens. When the leaves are pulled out and extended, it can easily entertain four individuals. The top is a little more pieced than expected, but it comes nicely finished and is pretty easy to assemble. The instructions may not be very clear, but this table is recommended to anyone looking for a versatile piece that is actually made of real wood, comes in a wide variety of colors and stains, and comes at a very affordable price. Sometimes the leaves do not close or open flush with top, and the packaging can be a little difficult to remove, and the legs looked cheap to some buyers, but other than these minor cosmetic issues, this table has an overall rating of 4.6 across almost 2000 reviews, making it a real winner in the popularity category.
