Rated 1 out of 5 by JennEileen Staines easily, buy a different table
While this table is attractive and fits great with our decor, the wood is soft and unsealed and seems to stain every time someone touches the table. We have had the table approximately 1 year and the tabletop is so mottled with stains that guests comment on it. We should have heeded the other reviewer but we are working professionals without kids so we figured her review wasn?t relevant to our situation. We have other Anthropologie furniture and have not experienced quality issues like this before so I think this is an anomaly. I don?t normally do reviews but we don?t want other buyers to regret their purchase as we do. We wish we had not invested in these tables.

The first few weeks owning this table, I was in love with it. I live in an industrial loft and this was just the right size and style. Like other reviewers, I did notice a decent amount of staining that felt less like patina and more like staining. The raw wood is also incredibly hard to dust as it just soaks everything up. My solution? I gave it a light sanding and finished it with clear minwax rub-on poly in the satin finish. It took an hour and cost me around $15 and now water beads up, all the stains are gone, future stains prevented and the slightly darker color is even more beautiful than the raw color. Now, I have a renewed love for it. I have a pull out couch and ordered this table because of the casters so I could easily roll it away. Not so much....They scratched my wood floors and they bunch up my area rug if I try to roll it so I still have to pick it up to move it. Not the end of the world, but if you were hoping wheels = mobility, I wanted to give you the heads up that this is not so accurate. Overall, I love the table and would buy it again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PhillyMom Not good if have kids
While I LOVE the aesthetics of the table, it is definitely not kid-friendly. I have a 2 year old and the first day, she put her dirty hands on the table. Now I have little grease hand prints all over the table that just won't come off. Also don't forget to pa attention to the dimensions. It's a bit longer than I was expecting.
