Essential Side Table is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 119.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential table meets need Cover with a beautiful round tablecloth and top with a glass topper. Need met beautifully!
Date published: 2021-05-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Option For An Inexpensive Side Table This is a great option for an inexpensive side table when used with a tablecloth and glass topper. I now have four 24” inch tables. Two are used in my family room and the other two are used in a bedroom as nightstands. The tables are sturdy but note that they are most stable when sitting on a hard surface such as wood flooring vs. a thick plush carpet which can make them a little wobbly. I would recommend purchasing an 84” round tablecloth for a 24” diameter table, which will drape nicely to the floor and a glass top to complete the look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Table! I bought 2 tables: They are 30" by 30". The tables are great! Very stable. I am ordering glass tops for them. I found 2 beautiful 90" round table cloths which are perfect as floor length cloths. I recommend these tables. They are stable and well constructed. My bed room looks great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Essential Side Table Have happily used 2 of these as nightstands for over 20 years. After my husband managed to break one, I needed a replacement and was dismayed to find that the 24” height, which makes it the perfect height for the bedside, was no longer available. I did keep the one I ordered though as I thought it would come in handy, but it really is too high to be used at the bedside. Please bring back the shorter model!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect extra table for decorating or entertaining this table is just as pictured - easy to assemble, fairly sturdy but light enough to move around.
Date published: 2020-02-18
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good table, bad assembly Good table overall, but much harder to assemble than you would think. The holes for the screws have to be made larger and half weren't even there.
Date published: 2021-07-09
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wish It Was Better Quality I am keeping this table in spite of being disappointed in its quality of stability. Even the small nails and brackets included to make it more stable were cheaply made. I love a 90" round table with a beautiful tablecloth for decorating versatility. Calico Corners used to sell a very stable one that I preferred but they no longer stock them; meaning I don't have much of a choice other than to keep this one.
Date published: 2021-06-28
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult Assembly Very difficult to assemble when there are not holes for the screws. I had to hammer a hole first so the screw had a starting point. For the price there should be better quality checks.
Date published: 2020-05-04
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Arrived in Good Condition Things have changed over time with this product. The material used now is not quite as thick and beefy as it used to be. So now they include brackets to attach to stabilize it, whereas before, the weight alone would have been sufficient. (BTW- the brackets called out the instructions were missing so I had to call Ballard to send them.) Still it is not so bad that I wouldn't discourage anyone to order. Glad I got it on sale, or I would have said it not be be a good value.
Date published: 2020-03-23
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not easy to assemble after all This is my second recent order that did not have the predrilled screw holes. Makes assembly a real chore. Wish I could count on quality control to catch these issues.
