I hemmed and hawed for at least six weeks about whether to buy this chest. The size, shape and seemingly sturdy quality were just what I was looking for as an accept piece in my living room The color, however, worried me. Not having other reviews to read and thinking this might just be too bright, I finally decided to go for it anyway. For me: too bright. Friends and relatives, however say it's a terrific color. Hmmmmm So.....I found furniture restorer will will paint it for $160 dollars. Worth it. It IS a sturdy, contemporary-ish piece. It arrived in perfect condition AND WAS FULLY ASSEMBLED EXCEPT FOR THE LEGS which were easy enough to screw in.
