This appears to be solid wood. The stain could have been applied better and it is a very low piece of furniture. I was almost shocked when I saw how short the legs were! Just the legs needed to be screwed on. It's a tad lighter than it appears online. I was actually hoping for it to be the color online or tad darker, therefore the real color doesn't work as well with my other furniture as I would have liked it to. Otherwise a solid but small (short) piece... almost best as a nightstand.
Many areas are missing stain. Other areas are missing the varnish or whatever the clear coat finish is. One corner is damaged and not from shipping as the inner box was undamaged. I bought two and haven't opened the second one yet. I will do another review tomorrow when I get to that one. All that said, I won't be sending it back, I'll touch it up myself.
It arrived with a small chip out of a corner, but I covered it up with furniture scratch cover. The walnut color is very pretty. Goes well in my F.R. with a lot of Cherry and Mahogany and Fruitwood pieces. The nice thing about it is that it is short enough to sit nicely under a window and not block the view. All the trim work is such a nice added feature. Something you don't see much these days. The dove-tail drawers are removable and though not large, a piece of printer paper fits inside nicely which is what I use it for. You can't beat it for the price.
It came in one body with drawer and four legs. Assemble this furniture is just for 4 legs. It might very easy. But the body wasn't assembled in Wright way. Left side of middle bar between drawers was not put in correctly. So it has some depts. between horizon and vertical pieces. It was finish with top and bottom even the middle bar is not inserted well. And the right side of middle bar between drawers was broken because of balance of whole body. I had chat with agency, she told me the refund will take about 3 days but I didn't get any email yet. In one order, I've got 3 damaged pieces. I hope it won't happen to anybody.
Everyone that sees my chest absolutely loves it. I love it. The only thing is didn't count on was the size of the droors, they're smaller than what I wanted, but I have used them in a different way than planned. So it's all worked out.

I bought this in July and still love it. Be sure and tighten the screws on the drawer pulls. I read the dimensions before I ordered so I knew what I was going to get. It works perfect as a "nightstand" next to my king platform bed with lots of room for lamp, phone and clock....AND is the exact width of the window it is placed under. What can I say that I already haven't......it is pretty and feminine too but blends well with the more contemporary headboard of my bed.
