Once assembled the is sturdy and nice looking piece. There are many steps to the assembly but it is straight forward. I ordered this to match a different Overstock bed and the colors didn't match. I'm no expert on color but there is more red in this than most chestnut colors. I would say it is cherry or mahogany. Instead of chestnut.
I just purchased and assembled two of these beautiful nightstands. I just wanted to say that they turned out beautifully, are well built and will be a nice addition to our bedroom. Yes the instructions leave a little bit to be desired but anyone that is at all handy can build these. I cannot say how much I love these nightstands and this is coming from an accomplished woodworker. I would probably be hard pressed to build these from scratch for the purchase price. The free shipping is icing on the cake. No I am going to look at the other Milton products on Overstock.com. Thanks for a pleasant purchase.
I really like this night stand. It is a good size and the drawers have a nice amount of space in them. It is a very pretty color, almost has an asian style look. The top of the night stand is larger then the drawers, but is perfect space wise for me. The handles are nice, but need to be tightened every now and again. If it was a bit cheaper I would have purchased a second one.
Once assembled, this is a beautiful night stand. It is sturdy, the color is a pretty, rich mahogany and even the hardware is interesting. The drawers slide nicely, too. I am considering buying another one, but will have help from someone with basic carpentry skills next time.
We purchased the Milton bed, nightstand, and chest. The quality is very good and they are beautiful. I was particularly impressed with Overstock's customer service. A few pieces of the chest were damaged, and they shipped out replacement pieces promptly.
The assembly instructions were poorly written and illustrated. Three people could not figure out how to attach the drawer slides and the particle board was weak where we were told to insert the screws. They kind of treated the slides as an after thought, and very little of that too. Other companies attach the slides so the drawers work. This company should take note. Otherwise the nightstand was attractive, and I am sorry I, and my friends, could not get it to fit properly. I returned them both.
I bought one of these when I bought the matching bed, then decided a second one was needed for the other side of the bed. OK, so it needs to be put together, but if you take your time and follow the directions it isn't too bad! Once assembled, it is sturdy and very good looking. I am thinking about a third one for the guest bedroom!
My nightstand is well-made and all pieces are finished nicely. None of the parts are missing. The only reason I gave it a "good" instead of an excellent is because of how difficult it was to put together and the instruction for the drawer slides were not helpful at all. The rest of the assembly is very easy but I still don't have the drawer slides in. The instructions and drawings are terrible and I have attached them several times and they don't fit together. I don't know why the slides aren't just attached to the wood at the factory since they are almost flat anyway. I think I am going to have to get help from someone who does woodworking or this kind of assembly before I will be able to use. Please make the drawings more clear and larger so it is easier to see which parts are where.
I am satisfied with this item. It looks good, and is sturdy. The assembly instructions are printed in a format which is too small. The diagrams are too small and unclear in some areas. It took some time and use of a magnifying glass to figure out how the drawer slides should be installed.
I love this nightstand. The other reviewers are correct in saying take your time, putting it together, read the instructions over before starting. It took me a total of 2 1/2hrs to assemble it. but I absolutely love the table, love it so much i swaped tables and put this in my family room.
The solid wood and sturdy quality and size are all perfect for our bedroom and matches the bed and dresser (chestnut, all). I looked in many places before finding this, and it is exactly right for me - the three drawers make it also good storage.
I've been looking for night tables for months and could not find any to blend with my contemporary bedroom dressers. Finally saw these and loved the photo. Ordered 2 , they came on time and were packaged very well. My husband put them together without complaint. The directions were good, extra parts were included but not needed. They look great, love the slight Asian style and are wood. Wish more matching pieces were available because now I want to change the other dressers. The price was fabulous!
Lot of pieces but not too hard to put together. Took me a better part of the day to do two of them. The second one went very fast. The ONLY issue I had was the side panels, when I put the cardboard back on I could hear the wood splitting when I screwed it on. I'm not going to send back, but it is a problem for the long haul. But they are beautiful and I am very happy with them.
