I had been looking for ages for a chest to double as a console/sofa table for behind the couch where the living room meets the dining room in an open floor plan. Then I inherited an antique clawfoot pedestal dining room table and at about the same time, I saw this cabinet. Between the color of the wood, the carvings on the face, and the legs, I thought this cabinet would coordinate very well. In that respect, I was not disappointed. It also arrived within days of my order in perfect condition. There are some dings, but only those that make it "distressed." The finish looks exactly as described, right down to the variation in color on the doors. It is a little tall for behind the couch, which I knew, and naturally it has an MDF back which shows a bit, but I can deal with it, especially since I will probably relocate the whole dining room to another room in the house eventually. Still, I thought people should know that it is definitely meant to be against a wall.
My two complaints are that it it feels light, that is the doors, drawer, etc. feel not solid. In other words, it is a little less like "real" furniture than I was hoping, even for the price. It is not wobbly as it sits, but the piece could surely easily tip over, so watch small children who may like to grab on to the top. I half expect it to fall over if one of my cats jumps off of it, but I am hoping not. My second complaint is that the drawer stop prevents the drawer from opening more than about four inches, or about half of its total depth. It will make it awkward to get things out that have rolled or been pushed to the back of the drawer. I think they could have let it open an inch or two more.
So, overall, this was not a bad purchase, and certainly not bad to the point where I want to spend the $150 plus to return it. Still, I am glad I had a coupon as I am not sure it is worth the regular price.
