Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)This unit is very small. In fact it's about 60% the size of a regular coffee table, and probably about 70% the height. Don't let the picture fool you. The picture makes it look like a regular coffee table. It's not. It's tiny. Almost like a toy that you'd give to a little girl to play house. You'd need to buy 2 of them and line them up side by side to get a regular sized coffee table and then it would still be too low. Makes for a decent, yet hard, ottoman. I think if I had guests over they'd laugh at this unit. It's really quite embarrassing to have in my living room. I'm tempted to put it in the garbage tomorrow.
Then there's the assembly. It requires allot of glue but they don't give you enough. One instruction in particular requires guesswork. I guessed wrong and had to go to the hardware store for additional and larger screws.
Bottom line: If you're a Munchkin or a Hobbit this coffee table might be for you. Otherwise, do yourself a favor and forget it.
I know you're going to say, well what do you expect for $34, right. Well, forgive me, I was trying to get a bargain, and trying to bypass the obligatory $225 you'd pay for a sheet of plywood and four legs. If this little coffee table was offered to me in a store for free, I wouldn't take it. In fact if they gave me $20 to take it, I'd leave it there. I already realize it was my own stupidity and gullibility that caused this, thank you very much.

Than you for the info. The coffee table still sucks, however.

This is the funniest review. The play house/ottoman/munckin/hobbit comment is simply hilarious. I was serioulsy thinking about ordering this coffee table until I read this. I will search for something else. Thanks!
