The color of this table is darker than what is depicted on the website. It IS an oak color, but on the website, it just looks lighter. It seems solid, well-made, and is packed well when shipped from the manufacturer, but it still wasn't what we were expecting. We put it together and then had to take it apart and get it ready to get shipped back. We'll also probably get nailed for return shipping, and if that's the case, we'll be out a lot of dollars. We'll see how the company handles this.
