Nice styling but the "wood" on this chest is contact paper. I was REALLY dissapointed when I received it and even more after I put it together as it looks really cheap....like a stand you bought on a yard sale and covered with wood looking contact paper. I would NOT buy this item again.
I wasn't expecting a quality and well finished piece for DIY furniture - particularly at this price point - but I was expecting something that would give the illusion of quality. Not so. The drawers do not line up correctly so of course they don't close properly. The directions were incomplete. If I wanted to solve a puzzle I would have bought one! We ordered two of these nightstands...one at a time. I was too hasty in ordering the second one having not waited until final assembly of the first. Possibly the second one will come together easier and and have a more finished apearance.
I ordered two of these for the guest room. The price (with the coupon), made them in line with any other piece of pre-fab furniture. No way would this be worth the MSRP, not that it would ever be sold at that price. I have to put this construction a few notches down due to two things. 1st, the exposed side screws drop this down to the 'walmart/kmart/target' grade of furniture. Nothing makes a piece of furniture look cheat than covered screws. They should have spent a little more money and used the hidden quarter turn screw attachments like they used in the top (Like *** does). I was very disappointed in this, and looking back at the web site pics you DO see them, but they are not obvious in the pictures but are in person). The only other thing is the flimsiness of the drawers. The side panels are super light (like thick balsa wood), and if you tighten things too tight they start to split. Plus the cheesy piece of cardboard for the bottom, it's not even laminated so it truly looks and feels like cardboard. On a positive note, they do look good, i have no issues with the 'laminate' finish, it's what we paid for and it looks good and the height and color is perfect for my bedroom. I also felt that the installation/instructions were perfectly clear and I had NO issues. When I assembled the 2nd one I didn't even need to read them. I was short no hardware, there was extra actually, extra nails and most importantly, extra screw caps to hid the hideous side panel screws! For the price (***) I think they are a bargain mainly for the 28" height, which is hard to find in a nightstand, but no, it's not solid wood, so don't let the listed MSRP fool you.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very Good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. A little light on the drawers, frame and top are fine.
Like this nightstand alright, but it was missing 2 vital screws so we had to make a 15 mile drive on a busy Saturday afternoon to a screw specialty shop to get the 2 screws that were missing. This thing is not easy to put together, the directions are crazy, (but then again, my husband is NOT handy... when we first got together, I had to beg him for a power drill and finally had to go buy my own.) Overall, this night stand works fine for what it was intended, although the drawers are a little "sticky" when you pull them out, but then again, that could be my husbands shoddy workmanship. : ) It also looks wider in the photo on overstock than what it actually is.
Chelsea Cherry 2-drawer & Open Cubbie Nightstand is not a very good product because the wooden finish is really a lamination on top of plastic and the assembly is very lengthy and the finished product is of very poor quality even for this price.
Very happy with my purchase. Was just what I was looking for.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? excellent

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? very accurate
I bought two of the nightstands for my childrens' room, I purchased them to go with a cherry wood headboard, even though they were not same company the color was a great match. Plus they were larger than I though they would be. looks very nice, would recommend if you looking for an inexpensive piece of furniture that looks nice and appears to be sturdy.
Although it comes in lots of small pieces, once we got it together, we loved it. It's sturdy and beautiful. Screw caps were included to cover the outside screws and thereby hiding them. I plan to buy another one. Great value for the dollar if you do any comparison shopping at all. There were no nicks, scratches or blemishes. A beautiful finished product.
these aren't as nice as what you might find in an upper end furniture store but they are decent for pre-fab furniture. I did not have any trouble putting these together, although it did take me a couple of hours. A power screw driver is highly recommended. If you don't like projects like this, pay for something already pre-assembled -- but you're going to spend twice as much!
The drawer slides on the left side of each drawer are made different than those for the right side. So, if you put something heavy in it or move the furniture around, the left side comes unaligned and falls off the track. This creates a domino effect for all the other drawers below.
