We bought this to coordinate with existing black bedroom furniture for my 6 year old. It matches well in finish. We've had it for quite a long time now, and it holds up very well, despite being piled high with bedtime story books, and the drawer packed full of "treasures". The little shelf underneath is the perfect size for some books, and a basket with other items. It's smallish in size, but perfect for our use. Still large enough for lamp, clock, drink, and books on top. I recommend this one!
I have decided to get this since it looks like it will be a good match for my 11 year old daughter's bedroom and i didn't want an oversize nightstand so she can maintain space in her room. The texture and the size was just perfect! It took me 3 hours to finish the assembly. It was easy and not complicated at all.
