This whole set is junk. I've had it since February, and now see the veneer peeling from the MDF, so it prompted me to come back here to write a review. The whole set is child sized it seems, and while I read the measurements when purchasing, it seems so much smaller in person. Collects dust like a magnet. You get what you pay for I guess. I can't wait to throw this stuff away.
This nightstand is a lot easier to put together than the matching dresser, and it looks really nice, and I suppose for what it cost it's not such a bad deal but the drawers are made of paper thin particle board and look like if you pull on them really hard, they'd fall apart. I'd recommend this before the broadway black dresser, which was a nightmare to put together and seriously looks like it's going to fall apart.
The instructions were easy to follow- and assembly didn't take too long. Took a little over an hour with the first nightstand, but the 2nd went quicker as I didn't have to follow the instructions step by step... they look great next to our bed... one complaint (which is my own fault) is that it's a bit shorter than I thought bases on the picture. I didn't take into account that our bed is really tall... so I should have measured and then bought the style with the shelf on top for more height. The stands still look great and are very sturdy- the inside of the drawers are made with cheap soft wood, so one started to split when I put it together--- I wouldn't recommend putting anything too heavy in the drawers- but for the price they were perfect! Fast delivery and no missing parts or damage. I would recommend... just make sure you measure your bed height first!!!! lol.
The nightstand was fairly easy to put together and looks ok. However it is much shorter than it looks. Be sure and measure your bed and check the measurements of the nightstand. The bed we have it next to is higher and it makes the nightstand look very small. Most beds these days sit up higher, so make sure you have a platform bed like they display it with. It definitely works best in a kids room with smaller furniture.
This nightstand does it's job and was pretty easy to assemble. (I also have the matching dresser that was a nightmare to put together and took 6+hours so having that practice probably helped) The drawers slide smoothly, but the nightstand is pretty short. I probably should have looked at the dimensions more carefully, but it's not even the same height as my bed and I have a low profile box spring.
I bought this nightstand to serve as a printer stand instead of as a nightstand. The reason is because it is lower to the ground and has two drawers thus providing a lower profile and functionality as well. It's classic black which goes well with some of the other pieces in my office and its brushed stell handles add a nice decorative touch. The drawers are deep and wide so there's plenty of storage space. I use it for printing paper and other office supplies which are not necessary to be exposed all the time. I like this nightstand, may get another and recommend it highly.
I have had these night stands for about 9 months now. I have poor vision and was a bot concerned about having to assemble them but the instructions were easy and I did it over the course of a couple of hours. They are holding up very well and I am very happy with the purchase.

This nightstand was very easy to put together with the instructions that were included. I couldn't be happier with the finished product. I did think that the nightstand was going to be a bit taller, but that's my fault for not looking at the dimensions before I ordered it. Even though it isn't as tall as I had imagined, I still love it!

This is not the highest quality nightstand but it does do what is required. It took some time to put it together but that was not a negative. For the price it is a bargain. No complaints.
