When I first got it out of the box, I thought WOW that's a lot of gold on there. But actually it looks very Royal and I needed a high chest for my Nightstand next to our very tall bed. I love this chest! The more I look at it the more I love it! And the four drawers are perfect for putting things into and no clutter on the nightstand. If you love fancy , regal little pieces to add to your decor and make you feel even more like a Queen... or Princess! Then this is a piece you will treasure! And I'm the only gal in the house... all sons and hubby.... so I need every bit of feminine pieces I can squeeze into my little domains!!
