Very nice dressers, with one caveat...the hardware included had some flaws. Ok, so I'm normally not the type to nit-pick about this sort of thing, but the cam lock nuts provided (used to secure the lid/shelving/and bases) were made of VERY CHEAP steel. The good news is that they provided some extra ones, so I just replaced the broken ones with the extras; BUT, in order to do that I had to disassemble entire top of the nightstand and this took me quite a bit of extra time. The port holes needed to be completely cleaned out of all the broken steel debris from the broken lock nuts in order to get a new one in there. I swear, I must have broken off at least 5 of these puppies just trying to tighten them in securely. Now, you might say this was my error for twisting the lock nuts too tightly. That might have some truth to it, but I wasn't even using a drill to tighten the darn things in! I was just using my hand held screwdriver! Also, the screws provided to screw in the back of the dresser are very weak. I had a few of those break off on me as well! Ah...I digress. If you're like me, and you do some DIY stuff at home, you likely have screws lying around to replace the little ones, so no biggie. The biggie is the poor quality of the cam-lock nuts. If there hadn't been extras provided, I would have had to go to HD, Lowes, or OSH to get replacements...and even then, they might not have had those exact same size/type/style of nuts. I've had this happen to me with "assemble it yourself" furniture in the past...very annoying. These are very nice night stands for the money, and I'd recommend them to anybody, but I will say to be very careful during assembly. And DON'T OVER-TIGHTEN THE CAM LOCK NUTS! Look, I'm not going to dock them a full star just for the stupid hardware; but if extras hadn't been provided, I'd be piping mad, and certainly whistling a different tune. Still 5 stars. Sturdy nightstand.

These nightstands look great! And they work well, too. *Good things: This is one of the few taller nightstands out there. It has multiple drawers. Steel drawer slides! It looks good, and it looks like its picture. It is definitely more clean/modern and elegant than rustic or ornate. Good instructions, extra pieces. *Semi-bad things: The drawers are not super-shallow, but they aren't as tall as the fronts suggest. It is a nice dark brown, but not quite as dark as our Arhaus Kieran Mocha bed. (But it also cost much less than the matching nightstands would've been, and they only had one drawer and not-steel drawer slides.) It is rubberwood, which in general looks good but is soft, so it will scratch easily. But that's why it's cheap. *Construction notes: As others have said, this will be much easier with a power screwdriver. I put the first one together with manual screwdrivers, and it is possible, but putting together the second with the power screwdriver was much easier! The instructions say you need a 4mm Allen/hex wrench. I've never had furniture require a hex wrench without including one before. Don't worry if you don't have one. I do, but it was easier to use a Philips Head screwdriver.

Purchased two of these as nightstands for my master bedroom to compliment the other existing mid-century Danish modern furniture. My intent was to examine the construction and see how to wall mount the drawer boxes to my extended headboard (in Danish modern tradition) and not use the legs. Yes - with some added cleats, the boxes can be restructured for wall-mounting. Currently still using the legs - they look great - deciding if it is worth the effort to wall hang. The materials, fit and finish are all excellent and, as an added bonus, the drawers glide on included steel guides and rollers (never mentioned). Packaging was excellent and assembly was a breeze. Instructions did have a slight dowel position error, but spotted that immediately and had a chuckle. Included was exactly one extra piece of hardware - dowel, cam-lock, screw or whatever for just-in-case. Well done. Had a bit of a shipping problem - one stand arrived as scheduled, the second tracking number never showed any movement. Overstock jumped on it and got the second stand about a week later. Very happy camper with these nightstands.

I like these end / night tables. They are larger then I anticipated but that's Okay. The rubber wood is of good quality and nice and heavy. The inner draw peices are particle board and the roller tracks are cheap steel ones. The draws do not open and close smootly. Not sure why. Regardless it's a nice peice of furnature I will keep around for a while.

The item is as described. Came assembled. Parts were good and sturdy. The only thing you have to do is use a screw driver and put the knobs back in place since they were delivered with the knobs facing inward. The stainless steel bar pull knobs have good weight on it...not hollowed on the inside. I put felt pads on the bottom of the feet to prevent scratch my new hardwood floors. The drawers does pull all the way out so that's very nice and convenient. It isn't as smooth to me when pulling or pushing back but that's minor.

This nightrstand was all I expected it to be. It looks and fits perfectly between our twin beds. The construction is heavy duty and the finish is excellent , although I was wary of chipping the surface during assembly as it is a veneer. (It did not chip) The assembly process was relatively easy and all the necessary parts and illustrations were provided. The box it was delivered in was slightly damaged but the internal packing was more than adequate protection to prevent any internal damage from handling. We love the look of the night stand and and the drawers function beautifully. The only thing that I feel should be changed are the draw pulls. They are made of polished steel. I think ceramic pulls would be more fitting for a night stand of this quality.
