I bought this stand because I thought it would look great with my new sofa. I purchased it on a Sunday afternoon and it was delivered the following Tuesday evening which was awesome! However when I opened the box the first thing I noticed was that it was much darker than the picture. I decided to deal with the color and stared to put it together with the help of my husband. We followed the directions to the letter and got the base completed with very minor difficulties. That being siad the directions said to assemble the base and then lift it upside down to put it on the top. When we did that the entire thing fell apart! The screws holding the shelves ripped out of their holes. We decided that turning it over as the instructions had said to do was obviously a big mistake! We removed the shelves and started over again knowing that this time we would leave it right side up and lift the top onto the base. Only problem is that now the holes where the screws go are to big so the thing wobbles and won't support any weight! We can't return it cuz it's messed up. Now we have to go to the hardware store to find some L brackets to secure the shelves so that we can put the top on. This is a very cheap piece of furniture and when I say "cheap" I mean poor quality! It's not worth the money at all! It scratches easily, it falls apart and it's a pain to put together. If you do decide to buy this unit do not follow the instructions! Assemble the base and then put the top on. If we had done that I may not have written this review.
This was not worth the money. It is very heavy, but it is not great quality. There was a screw hole that was not drilled so I couldn't put the last screw in, I don't think it will effect the over all sturdiness because it is so heavy, but still not great. The drawers pulled loose and we had to put in new larger screws to get it to stay together. And while we were lifting it up to stand it up, one of the anchor screws pulled out of the wood. There was nothing we could really do, so we just tapped it back in and are hoping for the best. Not expecting it to last more than a few years. On a completely personal preference, it feels too short. I wish it were about 2" taller, with the bulky style and length it feels like it should have been just a little taller.
