REAL wood, but does not look real
 from Essex County, NJ,  Jul 23, 2010

Pros: (1) Easy to assemble (I'm a girl & I assembled 2 of them by myself -- just line up the numbered bags of screws and follow directions), (2) Sturdy, (3) Drawer glides smoothly. Con: Just one major con: While the main components are solid wood, the finish hides any resemblence to wood. The finish is NOT the deep mahogany or walnut finish you see on your monitor -- it looks EXACTLY like the "black-brown" finish on the particle board furniture from a certain Swedish big box store (we have several of their pieces, and side-to-side, the finish is identical). It is dark, opaque and one-dimensional. My advice: BEFORE you assemble this nightstand, put some of its pieces in your room and try to live with the finish for a week or so. If it doesn't offend you or look cheap in your room, then go ahead and assemble it! I only wish I did this, because after the time and effort to put them together, I don't want the hassle of disassembling to return them. Hindsight is 20/20...
