I had made an extensive search for nightstands and found one I liked. It was too expensive so I passed. Then I found these on overstock and realized that they are almost identical at three to four hundred dollars less! They are exactly what I wanted.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It is slighty darker.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It is a very heavy piece of furniture.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate.
I began searching for a bedroom set months ago and here is what I found out: A quality bedroom set is double the prices as this set, anything cheaper looks plain and boring (and who wants that in a bedroom?) or overly tacky, also while some sets may look nice, you open the drawer and you can see its' so flimsy it will barely hold lingerie.
This nightstand is made of solid wood and no veneers or particle board. Including the bottom of the drawer. The color is a beautiful dark stain just a tiny bit darker than the photo. The back is even stained which is unusual. The handle and scroll work is real iron and not imitation plastic. The hinges are top quality and only seen on very expensive furniture. It arrived very well packaged.
Cons: on one side of one nightstand there were two light spots that resulted from glue that dripped from the top and didn't get sanded off prior to staining. We didn't care because that side is against a wall. Then on the other nightstand there is a tiny hairline crack in the top that can't be seen by looking down or from the front, because it's so small, so I just touched it up with a stain pen. Since it is solid tiny cracks happen due to a variety of reasons. If it gets worse at least because it is solid, we can fix it.
Price and Value: Can't beat it.
Nice pieces but front right corner was cracked through
the second stand had a deep groove scratched in the top
Not sure how to proceed.....will get someone to glue cracked table top split as they are very heavy and would cost too much to ship back
I am so happy with this nightstand! It looks exactly like the picture, it is solid wood with a beautiful finish. It was packaged very well, there wasn't a scratch on it and it was delivered in five days. The only negative thing is on the website the dimensions were a little confusing to me, so here are the exact measurements of mine.. 30 1/8" tall x 24" wide x 16" deep.
This nightstand arrived on schedule and was extremely well packed. Unfortunately, the nightstand had several obvious and significant defects. One of the corner joints was not flush at all with bare wood showing. This makes the whole piece look very cheaply made. The style overall is very nice although the color is slightly darker than the picture provided on the web site. The reported dimensions are accurate. The sturdy packaging was not damaged at all in transit so I can only surmise that the defects were a problem with the unit's manufacturing and ensuing quality control at the assembly point. I hope that I can come up with a reasonably effective repair strategy as I am not going to the trouble of returning the item.
Very solid beautiful piece. Shipping was fast and product was packed excellently. Color is accurate in photo. This is the third piece in this collection I have purchased and I have been very happy with all of them.
Follow up question, is there any way to get the inside dimensions of the cabinet area and the opening of the door?

The back part will be flat against the walloverstockcustomercare1 on Nov 20, 2013
I'm sorry to ask the same question again, but you seem to have two answers for the depth. From the front to the back where its against the wall is 13" or 24"? 13" would be great for our needs, but if its not right I don't want to pay a return fee.makingtheoface on Nov 17, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

The measurements say 30 high by 16 wide by 24 "long." Isn't 24 the depth of the piece from front edge to back? 13 is really small.souper1 on May 21, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
