Mercers Furniture Corona Coffee Table – Easy to put together looks nice but split slat of wood

So cannot use the said drawer. Disappointed to say the least. Did not complain at the time. Am using the coffee table and it does look really nice except the drawer is for show only. No reflection on the makers at all but perhaps whoever or whatever prepared the flat pack should have double checked all the pieces listed on the diagram were packed.

Took me about an hour and a half to put together because i was suffering with a bad back. I think they put in a wrong size screw, but that wasn’t a problem. There is a bit of a gap round the draw. All in all, for the price, the table is fab. It goes well with my wooden floors.

I would deffo purchase more in this style/range. Delivered exactly as promised.

Nice looking but was very damp when unpacked had to. Nice looking but was very damp when unpacked had to put together on a dust sheet because of the stuff applied to it. Also my husband whos a decorator attempted to stain and varnish after a few day of drying and it was a bad idea as even regular stain wont adhere to surface properly and even with varnish finish all u have to do is catch it with a nail or anything else and it chips the stain/varnish off. Lesson learned use coloured wax i think is best. Oh and after it dried some of the joints have spread out on the top panels making them wider than before up to and over quarter inch while some stayed the same so looks odd now. And very very very soft wood that dents very easy. Strange as we have corona sideboard we got years ago new ( flat packed) from a charity shop which has had 3 tvs on the top and dvd player and ps4 and not 1 dint or scratch as of yet. For price alone i give it 4 stars.

Expensive looking table for a cheap price. Bargain table for the price and looks expensive, quite easy to assemble with a decent pos’ screwdriver, screws need a bit of elbow grease but had it up in half an hour. Lovely solid bit of wooden furniture. Not too bulkey, matches my dining table and chairs.

Says in description that it’s waxed but unfortunately this information was incorrect. It needs waxing and the contour wants filing.

This item looks good, however this pine and a lot of this. This item looks good, however this pine and a lot of this range arrive damaged. This table was delivered while i was at work and the delivery company thought they would leave it outside in the rain. Which was really good of them.The item was damaged, wood was warped and cracked and a few pieces were in two. I had the same with a cupboard. Saying that, i would recommend this table if it comes in one piece :d.

Great looking piece of furniture. . What a lovely piece of furniture this. Good solid pine with plywood for the base of the drawer. Took me about one and a half hours to complete but i’m not so fit these days, forty years ago and in my twenties i probably could have managed it in an hour. One of the more simple construction jobs for such a good looking piece.

The type of coffee table i wanted was £200+, i found the corona table for £40 and bought it not knowing what to expect. Extremely happy with the product. So so simple to build, i used the instructions as a reference but it’s so easy to know where the dowels and screws go. I bought wood stain for the table but was unsure if it would need sanded first as i read a review that the wood was waxy. This wasn’t the case for me, wood was dry. Was able to give it 2 coats no problem and dried within a couple hours. Would highly recommend this table. If i had an expensive table i would probably overly careful about putting things on it and not getting it scratched, however this looks the part and it’s good to not be too precious with it.

Its light so it makes it easy to move.

Good product, but ensure you have woodglue to hand. , as with all home assembly items such as this, i would suggest you buy some woodglue and ensure every joint is glued as well as using all the avaialble fittings. When using the fittings, advisable to put wood glue on these as well to ensure the product stays firm. If this is undertaken then you will have a very solid piece of furniture for the price.

We had ordered a few different items of pine furniture and they were all the same shade and colour which we were very happy abou. Well i ordered this mexican waxed pine coffee table from mercers?. It came very quickly, we had ordered a few different items of pine furniture and they were all the same shade and colour which we were very happy about considering that they came from different suppliers. Anyway after checking that all the parts where there the table was very easy to assemble no hidden snags that we found on some off the other pieces of furniture the table is quite large very sturdy and very solid with a lovely smooth finish.It looks just like the picture i highly recommend it ,also i give mercers 5stars to.

Sturdy arrived early, easy to put together and looks lovely and expensive 🙂 will recommend.

Because of the low price and some of the reviews i was concerned that the coffee table would not be that great, but it is really wonderful. It is a little difficult to put together in one sitting without power tools, but once i started it i could not stop. Do not use power tools, you will be sorry because the wood will not hold the screws if you do.The overall quality of the pine is good, and everything looks quite good for the cost. I had a little trouble with the drawer bottom and had ‘manually encourage’ it into the slot, because two of the slots did not line up, but it’s fine. It is a very sturdy table, but i would suggest using wood glue on all dowels, screws and junction surfaces to add to the stability. Nothing was broken, marred or damaged and looks great in the living room.

Easy to put together with the clear instructions. Be mindful of each part being the right way around before screwing together. Through personal preference i have not fitted the black round pins. The table looks fantastic without them and they are only cosmetic. I got this table at a reduced price but would have paid more after seeing it.

Was a little worried when i saw some of the reviews but decided to give it a go anyway. The table looks great and far better quality than i was expecting, looks nice and solid and is a good size. Thankfully i enlisted some help to put it together as it needs a good strong hand to get the screws in, took us around an hour to put it together so not too bad really. An added bonus for me was that it was optional to add the black circular studs, i decided not to add any of them as i prefered it without.

This is just great for the price.

The chunky wood design is really nice and the colour is just like the picture. This table is lovely and looks far more expensive than it is. The chunky wood design is really nice and the colour is just like the picture. I managed to put this together on my own so it’s really not complicated at all.The only things i would mention are to be wary with the black ‘pins’. There are no spares so if you bend one (or three like me) you can’t replace them with anything. Also you may want to put some form of wax or other protecting layer on it, as it does mark with certain liquids which isn’t great if you have young children. Asides from that, i really do love the table and will be buying the matching set at some point.

A lovely size table and i managed to put it together by myself so that means it was easy.
