If this is actually the style table you are looking for, search no further! I have been searching for two years for a farmhouse style table that was large, a good solid quality but wouldn't break your budget. I stumbled across this one online and when I received it, I had been pleasantly surprised with the appearance, quality and size for the price. It is extremely heavy with a good pulley system for the leaf. It really is more of a creamy color so don't expect a bright white. It comfortably sits 8 people with the leaf, which is very heavy. I did have delivery problems with the local shippers who when they finally delivered it, damaged my first table. I contacted them immediately and they took care of reordering a new table, that i received within a couple of weeks. This is a table I'll have for many years!.
