The box had been opened before and I am sure returned to Touch of Class for the same reason that I am complaining about. The fancy bottom of the table fit into the holes that were on the legs to steady it but the metal part that was supposed to be screwed in against the legs would not reach. My husband had to bend them so they would lay against the table the way they were designed to. Thanks to my husband I am keeping the table but I am disappointed in Touch of Class.
The Barello pedestal table is a nice accent table to fit in with our Mediterranean style decor. However, as simple as it is, it was a little tricky to put together.
