This is very pretty, but mine came with a scratch on the front--so I am disappointed. I hope customer service issues a credit or agrees to replace.

We bought this originally to hold toys for my day care business so my house didn't always look like a day care business and I was surprised how much it held. We recently moved and I no longer run a day care but now use it to hold blankets and it doubles as a lovely side table. I will agree with others, it is not the sturdiest or strongest wood but I wouldn't expect it at this price. If is very good looking.
I had been looking for a trunk resembling a treasure chest for some time. I wanted it to store extra blankets, towels, etc. I wanted one that looked good but that did not cost an arm and a leg. This one is plenty big enough and a bargain for the price. It may not be as sturdy as the old, vintage, heavy trucks that you find at flea markets and such-but it looks so much nicer! I was more than pleased with it and am going to order a few more like it for various rooms in the house for the extra storage and still keeping with the treasure chest look-that I love :)
I hesitated to purchase this product based on the reviews. But I thought I will give it try. I am really glad after I received it. The trunk is a such beautiful decorative piece. It fits my living setting perfectly. It is light, but very sturdy trunk and I can move it around easily. Now the pillows and books finally has a place to go. I am very happy with my purchase.
This trunk is lovely to look at, but it is so flimsy that I'm not even sure it'll hold up to seasonal sweater storage like I planned. I am actually afraid that the weight of winter clothing would be too much! It might be great for something light and airy- tissue paper or your gift bow collection- but this is a flimsy, flimsy piece.
Unfortunately the only quality it has is it looks good. So flimsy, light, "breakable" it would never stand up to use as a coffee table or storage of blankets etc like i wanted. Hate that I have to pay to return it. But it's worth losing the $17 on return shipping than having $150 as kindling for the fire by Christmas. Very disappointed. And very disappointed overstock is not like other companies online that pay shipping for disappointed customers. Probably wont be shopping here anymore, just not worth the risk. Poor quality!

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It's made of particle board. Or wood not thicker than 1/4 inch. I am paying to have it returned that's how bad it is. Within days there will no doubt be a hole in it somewhere. Not useful as a coffee table. Maybe for a stage prop.
