Rated 4 out of 5 by LuvmyPiper Very unique spool table.
I LOVE this little table. I actually bought it as a scratch post for my Scottish Fold cat, Piper. (Don't laugh). It is much sturdier than the small ones you buy at the pet store. I put it next to my couch. Functional and cute!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lakehousetime Great for my lake house
I love this table, but be prepared for the jute smell. The rope smell in the shipping box was strong. It has aired out in my house but still puts off a little smell. The advantage of its decor outweighs the smell. the first table we received was damaged but Ballard took care of the replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by runner What a great table! It's just as pictured.
Great table! I've been looking at it for a while and finally ordered it. So happy that I did! Its nautical look is perfect in my beach basement living room, and the extra storage comes in handy for sheets and blankets needed for the sofa bed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by INDYSHPR This product is unique and beautiful.
My only surprise (and tiny disappointment) with this product is the rope is much darker than appears in the picture. It's definitely a brown rope....in the picture it appears to be a much lighter, almost cream color, which I believe would make it more noticeable and was actually the color I was looking for. But, we kept the table and really like it. The top is removable and it does have a hole in the center like an actual spool would...I also didn't realize that when I ordered it. Not a horrible feature...just a surprise. Overall, still love the table.

We just received our table and it did not disappoint! One of my favorite things in my house! I do not have nautical decor like other reviewers and it looks great in my family room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by seawatcher rope spool side table
I have a coastal home so this table fit in nicely. I do think it was over priced for the type of piece it is, but it is unique so that's a big plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OliveJ Very sturdy and good looking
Past reviews mentioned that the rope didn't fit exactly against the top, but mine was perfect. Table is sturdy and quite heavy and I recommend it highly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by salad SPOOL SIDE TABLE
I have not had a chance to see this spool table in the small cottage where I will be using it. It does seem to be just a bit flimsy as far as the construction. I do, however, really like the texture that the rope affords as well as the opportunity to use it for storage. Good for small spaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by solomonmom Awesome Table, lots of storage!
Loved this table, originally ordered two for me, and, then ordered three more for three of my college kids - 1 boy, 2 girls. Beautiful workmanship, tons of storage under the lid, goes well with any décor. I use mine in my sewing room for sewing & material supplies. One of my kids plans to use hers in her living room (nautical theme), one will use his in his bedroom master closet to store additional clothing and/or shoes and to sit on it, or use it as a sort of step ladder. One will use hers in her study area to store blankets/throws for visitors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TwInsaneMom Exactly what I was looking for!!
I bought this table to use in my family room which has a nautical theme. I works perfectly!! After reading other reviews, I expected the rope to be darker. But it really isn't much darker than the picture. The top and bottom are solid wood and although the 'body' of the spool seems a thinner material, it is also very solid. (No, my kids don't get to climb on it like a construction grade spool). If your looking for something you can sit on, go to the boat docks for a spool. But if you want a beautiful piece that looks great in your house...order this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Suda Great decorative item + storage
We previously bought the spool side table for our lake house to be used in our grandchildren's room. We liked the fact the top removed for storage. Our daughter just redecorated her boys' room, and we sent another spool table to her. The boys love the look as well as storage space.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sheshells This table is EVERYTHING I hoped for!
Just as your catalog promised: this table balances nautical tones with a slightly dressy decorating effect; perfect for the seaside!

Received my spool table today. The packing was excellent. I live in Alaska and it traveled far. Great shape on arrival.
It far surpassed my expectations. Heavy duty and really great quality, not to mention SO... cute.!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yachtiegal So Perfect!
Love the table. I found no problems with the rope at the top as some reviews have suggested. If you are not down on the floor looking up there is no way to reveal the problem....I am not on the floor much nor are my guests. I do have a nifty bit to share...If you desire to protect the top, the cheap glass tops sold at discount stores will fit perfectly. The ones that cover the little wooden tables. The top is so cute, I didn't want anything to mar its surface. I had one and low and behold it fits! Yea. Again perfect table for the nautical great room! Just another home run for Ballard.

When this great side table was delivered, my family room was under construction, so I sat it in the kitchen. We used it as an extra seat until my son discovered that the hole in the top was large enough for a can to fit through. It became our glass recycling bin and has never moved into the family room! Just line the inside with a plastic trash bag and you are set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KarlaG Great little table
I am using this as an end table between two recliners. This table is just adorable in my little living room at the beach. Most of the comments above are true. The robe is much darker, and the center core is some type of fiber-board...but for the price it is a wonderful little table. Do not be afraid to order one as you will LOVE it. This is my first purchase from Ballard..and it will not be the last.

I knew I wanted this side table for our new home. After I ordered it, it arrived in a few days. It was everything that was described. It is a focal point in our livingroom and have many compliments on it. I love showing it off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MasterChief Recommend with reservations
Our media room is decorated in a nautical theme, and this unique item is perfect for that look. Unfortunately the removable top warped within a few weeks of purchase and now no longer sits flat and secure on the base. Since it now rocks back and forth, this piece is not really useable as a table any more.
