Southern Enterprises Review

Southern Enterprises has high quality furniture and accessories. They have everything from bath accessories, to tables, to fireplaces and everything in between. We had the chance to review the Oak Pyramid Trunk Cocktail Table.

I'm in love with this. We had an ottoman, it was microfiber and our dog slobbered all over it all the time. We've been wanting a coffee table, but I didn't want to give up the storage. So this was the perfect solution. Storage and a hard cleanable surface!
All the pieces. Well kind of. Hard to get them all in here.
Here is where they connect using a Lock nut and lock cap. Well my lock caps kept breaking on me. I broke 2 of them.

 So my husband went to Home Depot and bought a pack of 4. They were $5!!
Then I finished putting it together and it was done. It was fairly easy. I don't like putting stuff together because my hands hurt after a while, but I know I can do it in half the time my husband could and I don't complain about it. So it was obvious who was putting it together. 
All done!
I love it, It's very sturdy. It's bigger than our ottoman and holds more inside. We have all our blankets in there and Avery has a couple toys in there as well. We love it! We now have a coffee table. However, It's hard to rest my feet on it now. I sit on the couch when I'm on the computer and put my feet up, but now that's not comfortable. So it will take some getting used to.

We still have our ottoman, it's still in the living room as well. I don't want to get rid of it in case we move, it would be great in a basement somewhere. So we're keeping it for now. 

Price: This table is $199.99 and I think this is VERY reasonable!

Overall: **** it was a pain to have to run to the store and put assembly on hold, but other than that we're pretty happy.
