I bought this and some matching pieces. I assembled the bed with no difficulty as well as the matching dresser and night stand; however, the process took about 5 hours to do all three pieces. The bed is a full slat bed that requires screws on each slat, so if you have an electric screwdriver or drill with a Phillips head bit, you can save about and hour of the time required. The finished product looks very good and presents an excellent value. Also, all the parts matched up, all the necessary hardware was included, and the instructions were simple and precise.
Hard to assemble since the pegs are hard wood and do not fit well, too much Styrofoam padding to get rid off, should learn from IKEA to reduce packaging material .

I received this package today, and opened it immediately. I had no problem with assembling parts. The instruction was very clear to follow. I was very patinet to finish the job. I placed my printer on the nightstand, it looked very nice! You can put anything on it. I appreciate it very much, Overstock.com. I highly recommend this product to everyone!
We bought these bedside tables to match the rest of the Alsa bedroom set. They look great and are almost perfect, except the drawer runners do not work in one of the two that we bought. We are confident everything is assembled correctly, but the drawer does not open and close smoothly. If I didn't use the drawer so frequently it wouldn't be that much of an issue, but it bothers me everyday!

The directions are not clear at best, and completely missing when it comes to drawer assembly. With the aid of a crystal ball, some tarot cards and a quick phone call to the Psychic Friends network, I was able to piece together what needed to be done, until it came to installing the drawer runners. There were no holes giving any indication where they should be mounted, and I was not about to start randomly putting holes all over the thing. I put it aside until I had more time and patience to deal with it.
Decent quality for the price. assembling takes a while. low end interior wood, but nice exterior wood and finish. looks attractive when fully assembled. drawer slides are simple and low end, but for a solid wood furniture piece you cant beat the price. I suppose you could upgrade yourself to the expensive drawerslides, but no one will notice but you.
I purchased this with the entire set (the bed and the dresser) and was pleased with the other two. This piece, however, was not as impressive as it was the most time consuming to put together as well as the holes being incorrectly drilled. I knew that this piece was going to be low to the ground (just part of the theme of the entire set), however I would have preferred a larger surface area for the top surface of the night stand.
I purchased two of these nightstands to go with the platform bed and dresser. I spent 4-5 hours working on putting the first night stand together. All because the directions weren't clear enough. I made mistakes because the directions said to put the wooden dowels in the holes and it was the wrong hole. So had to dig the wooden pegs out and put it together without using them. The slides were put on wrong...........again directions weren't clearn on which side, etc to put them. The second nightstand took only an hour as I knew what to do. I didn't use the wooden dowels in making the first section of the night stand and that helped. But again, I put the tracks on wrong. so had to take them off and put them back on again. I gave it 4 stars because after the frustration of putting them together, they are very nice nightstands. Very short.......so consider that if buying. I measured, so no surprises there. Would've liked it better with 2 drawers. All parts arrived and not problems with packaging.
This line of furniture is garbage. I hate to give such a bad review but I bought this whole set for an extra bedroom which was barely used and every piece is falling apart and is going in the garbage. This stuff is constructed with veneers, glue and dowels. I know this because when I pulled one of the drawers open one day, it broke into pieces. Like I said, it was barely even used. I now have to pay someone to haul it away.
It is low to the ground! I can't stress this enough, read the description and hold a ruler up. I read some other reviews and was like, "Oh ok it's low, but it matches the bed. No problem, it'll look good" Mistake. Imagine the night stand being several inches below your outlets. You have to lay on the bed in order to really use the drawer unless you bent down really low. Other than the size, it is a nice nightstand with a nice quality finish.
I am leaving a review based on the bed + two dressers and a nightstand, and my experience ordering from Overstock. First, the Alsa bed frame: Although this is a nice wood frame, the pre-installed brackets were not correct and the only way to tighten them were to bend them. The frame and side boards do not sit flush with the bottom board. However, there are plenty of slats to support the mattress and the over-all look is very nice. Second: The Alsa 3-Drawer Dresser This dresser is not completely wood. Only the outside (except for the back) is wood, the inside of the drawers themselves are pressboard and the sides of the drawers split when inserting the dowels. The bottoms of the drawers and the back are thin and cheap. Plus, this arrived broken, (box 2 of 2) was not in it's original box. It's not worth returning and we will have to fix it to use it. It was a waste of money. We didn't pay for returned and/or refurbished furniture, We paid for new. What we got was obviously broken and possibly a previous return (the entire back main side of the dresser was unglued/unscrewed/unhinged?... just nearly hanging by a thread). I guess it is partly our fault for not noticing the difference in the boxes, but we did order the whole set at once and shame on Overstock for sending out an obviously defective product. Third: The Alsa 4 drawer dresser: The piece is not complete wood. Only the outside pieces are wood and that is good, but the drawers are made of pressboard and the sides of the drawers split when inserting the dowels. The bottoms of the drawers might as well be cardboard. So, be aware that you will get a nice-looking dresser on the outside, but cheap construction on the inside. Lastly, the Alsa nightstand: The drawers and back are also made of cheap pressboard. It is easy to assemble and matches the other pieces in the set.
I'm only 5'11 (male) and this nightstand is way too short. I have to get down on one knee to open and view the drawer. I know it's my own fault for not taking the measurement specifications into consideration, but I really didn't expect a nightstand to be this low. I'm being very serious when I say that this is perfect for a midget. So now my plan is to give this tiny set to my future child when I have one, and then get a normal sized bedroom set for myself.
