    FYI: Reviewers say it's super easy to assemble, but that you'll likely need a drill, as the holes aren't pre-drilled.

    Promising review: "I love this versatile stool! It’s stylish, well-made, and extremely easy to assemble.

I highly recommend!" —Melissa

    Promising review: "I am absolutely in LOVE with this table!! Everything about it is, quality, wood color and texture, craftsmanship. I could go on. I'm seriously impressed. Shipping was super fast once it shipped. I know some reviews said there were issues with shipping. Here are my thoughts on that...once it was shipped, it was VERY fast! Yes, it took a little time to make, but this is clearly stated in the listing description. More importantly, I appreciate that it took time because that tells me this is a quality and one of a kind unique piece. I'd much rather have something handmade with love and wait a little longer than have something manufactured and shipped overnight. Thanks so much, Jorge!! I'll definitely be back for more." —Ashley Newhouse

    Get it from 3Ft Furniture on Etsy for $135 (available in four stain options). 

    4. A *gorgeous* accent table with doors to secretly hide all of that, just, stuff you have lying around that probably shouldn't be thrown out, but definitely shouldn't be on display. Furniture that's aesthetically pleasing and reduces clutter? Sign me UP.
