The trucks came well packaged and very prompt. The quality of these items leaves quite a bit to be desired. I qualified them to my girlfriend as "5-yr furniture", because if they last beyond that I will be shocked. I also went to Lowes and purchased bigger hinges for the trunk. The ones provided are horribly flimsy and suspect. As for other reviews which say these are hard to assemble, I would say they are the equivalent of any furniture that would be purchased from a "big box store" (particle board, lots of pre drilled holes, and poor instructions). Either way they do look nice and if you see these items as ornamental then they aren't bad. Hope this helps with your decision.....
I just bought the matching trunk end table when we moved into our house a week ago, but I bought the longer tunk coffee table about 9 months ago and they look great in my basement. They're sturdy and useful for storage purposes. I'd recommend using a power drill to assemble the trunks because there are a lot of screws to insert, but assembly instructions were very easy to follow. It took a little less than an hour or so to build the end table. These trunks/coffee tables are very functional pieces that I would recommend.

Made in China. Need I say more? Four of the eight bolts to attach the legs were too short, which of course required that I make a trip to the hardware store. The spring on the inside hinge was so stiff that the lid would not close. I threw the hinge in the trash because that is what it was. Trash.
I ordered this for my bedroom because I needed a small piece for my bedroom. It arrived in less than 24 hours, which was a pleasant surprise. The item assembled very easily when compared to some of the other pre-fab pieces I have ordered in the past. The directions are relatively clear and everything is well-labeled. I love that the hardware is separated into individual pockets so that you know what you're supposed to be using without any confusion. I was able to assemble it by myself in about an hour. The only thing I struggled with was applying the spring on the inside, because I couldn't figure out by the image in the instructions how - exactly - it was supposed to go. I pulled up the picture on the website and enlarged it to see its placement, and that worked perfectly. I think this is a fine piece. Is it cheap - not exactly, but it's also not "expensive." It's sturdy enough, being held together with the ever-popular cam screws and dowels. I'm perfectly happy with this purchase and will be enjoying it for years, I'm sure.
I WAS LOOKING FOR COFFEE TABLE AND END TABLES FOR A WHILE. I WAS HESITANT TO BUY THESE BUT VERY GLAD I DID. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL. EASY TO PUT TOGETHER VERY GOOD QUALITY. WOULD DEFFINATELY BUY AGAIN.

Like this table because it has storage. Nice wood look that is not too dark with some red tones.Looks more expensive than it is. A bear to put together. Follow directions carefully and it will work well. Top even has a hydraulic closure so that it does not slam closed.
This end table is actually quite a bit nicer than I had anticipated. Very heavy, too! It took me about an hour to assemble. Nice finish, very study, not completely practical for everyday storage but perhaps for holiday items or other things you don't need to access on a regular basis? It's a great alternative to the usual boring side table. I have an electic/contemporary living room and this fits in great. Room for a lamp and one or two small items without crowding.
This end table is a good addition to any room! It is functional, well made, and decorative, having significant storage space while serving as an end table. It takes a bit of assembly, but it's more time-consuming than difficult or tedious.
