This nightstand is very solid and it is made of solid wood unlike so many made of particle board. The top finish hold up well to water spills. Drawers operate very well!
This nightstand is darker than it shows up in the picture. It is a very dark reddish-brown mahogany. The hardware has the look of oil-rubbed bronze--it is nearly black. For my decor, polished brass will look better, so I'm replacing it. This is not heirloom quality furniture. However, for the money, it looks quite nice and should stand up to normal wear. I especially like that it came assembled except for screwing on the feet (less than 5 minutes).
This nightstand is very well made with dovetailing in the drawers. The finish is not as brown as shown in the photo, however. It's more a cherry finish than a walnut brown finish. The drawers are felt-lined. It was very well packaged, so there were no scratches of any kind. I gave it four stars because of the color, but otherwise it was a good price for mahogany wood, even though it's not one solid piece. It's made from pieces glued together.
I had a VERY old very heavy nightstand and needed something smaller and more in tune with my bedroom furniture. It's not a high nightstand which is perfect for my lower bed. If you have a high bed then this nightstand might not be what you are looking for. Also the bottom to the drawers are not real heavy wood, so I don't recommend putting anything heavy in the drawers. The drawers do open very smoothly which is a definite plus compared to my old nightstand. My son had this assembled in less than an hour w/a cordless drill. Update: I have had this nightstand for 5 years and it's still going strong and looks just like it did the day I set it up in my bedroom. I am very pleased with it. The drawers still open smoothly and there isn't any puckering of the finish like on some of my lesser expensive furniture pieces.
