This little nightstand is amazing! It is strong and sturdy and looks way more expensive than it actually is. All of the pieces are sturdy, thick, solid wood with the exception of the panel behind the drawer which is not visible. My six year old has been climbing on it with no problems. Assembly was complicated. For a woman I am pretty mechanical and usually have an easy time with assembly. I change my own brakes and oil on my car, I have assembled beds cabinets and other furniture, even rewired some electrical things in my house that needed fixing. I was surprised to spend so much time on this tiny little piece of furniture. I have a good collection of tools and it still took me 4 hours to get everything fully assembled. At the very end I had trouble with the front panel of the drawer slipping off when I pulled out the drawer to open it, but I solved this with a little bit of wood glue and a dot of epoxy. It might be more of a hassle than you are willing to deal with but for the price of the furniture it is well worth it. I had been searching for weeks for an affordable nightstand that also matched the style of my platform bed and I am so glad I found this one. Take the time to do it right and you will be thrilled.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The top section of the drawer appears to be lighter or maybe glass but it is really is just glare. The wood is the same color just beveled at an angle.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Higher quality than expected
