I bought this table because I have a small kitchen eating area, it fits well. It was relatively easy to assemble though a bit confusing at first when I only found the Spanish instructions. After pulling all the pieces from the box I finally found English instructions. The screws where all labeled for which piece they went to. my kids and I separated the different sections out, then my husband and I had it together with in three hours, though it I got have gone quicker without our kids and dogs trying to help. All in all we enjoy the table because it has made it possible for us to sit down as a family to eat.
I really like this table. The bench sits our family with room to spare and the storage in the bench is genius! We're storing our children's school snacks in them so they can open it and see all the goodies.
This item is horrible!! Wish I could give it half a star. The table and chairs are scratched and have big gouges in the wood. It took almost 3 hours to put together!!! Now I have to take it apart to return it!! Don't buy this!!!!
We were concerned about this table when we received the packaged and based on the reviews. Instructions were not included but we were able to get them online. Took over 5 hours to build, but once it was done we love it! Very solid and plenty of room for our small family and a couple guests. Very satisfied!
Not the highest quality but we have this in our cabin and it serves its purpose. I wish they had a higher quality unit. The pine scratches very easy and the bench had to be reinforced because it is flimsy. I would still purchase it again because it works for us for now.
After reading multiple mixed reviews about this table set online, I decided to purchase it anyway. We picked it up at Sears rather than having it shipped to prevent the damage reported in reviews. Definitely recommend doing this - every part was in good condition. If you are not used to assembling furniture, this will be difficult. The instructions are easy enough to follow but I found this to be a two-person job. In some cases, the screws provided were very difficult to flesh with the wood, despite trying with a normal phillips head screwdriver and with an electric screwdriver. We assembled it with the short bench side on the right and long side on the left, which was easy enough to figure out in the instructions. Although the assembly process was difficult and frustrating, now that the table is assembled, we love it! The nook fits perfectly in our small apartment kitchen. Ordering the Chelsea cushions for it as well. Will be interested to see how well the set holds up in the next 1-2 years.
The dining bench is sturdy and the fact that it has storage is a huge plus! The corner can be reconfigured to fit different angles. The table is flimsy- it sways despite being tightened and double checked for accurate installation. Te wood is also very soft - and now has math homework ingrained into it...
damaged upon shipment, product was in pieces, box torn and shredded. product was shipped UPS and delayed several days. Had to return entire product to Sears I will never order thru Sears online ever again.
I thought this nook would be great for the kids to do homework on and east snacks on. While it is serving its purpose somewhat, it is not the quality I would have expected. The material seems light and with three boys I am not sure how long it is going to hold up.
I love this set. Looks beautiful in my kitchen.
