Beautiful piece of furniture, especially for the price! Sturdy hardwood, quality construction. There were a couple very minor dings/scratches (or maybe only 1), but on surfaces that will never be seen (e.g., backside of interior drawer, etc). The color is quite a bit darker than is displayed in the pic, but I like it and was prepared for that based on other reviews (thanks folks! your reviews were such a help when I was deciding what to get!!). I put this together on my own, took me about 90 minutes or so (with breaks while watching The Daily Show in between assembling things, so I'm sure w/ a little more focus I could have done it in under an hour). Came with lots of extra hardware, which is a comfort. Powertools definitely help with assembly as there are lots of screws to tighten (but make sure you're proficient with a power drill, sure don't want the drill to slip, you'll end up damaging this yourself before you even get to use it!!). As others have noted, this is a BIG nightstand. I measured ahead of time and knew that the full bedroom set would not fit in my current bedroom (I bought the other two pieces -- queen bed and 7-drawer dresser -- am waiting for a second pair of hands to put them together). I'll be using this as a computer stand in my home office for the time being, and hopefully will have a place someday where I can fit the entire set in one room. Wanted to see this piece before deciding whether to get a second nightstand, am ordering that today! Will comment later on color match across items, which obviously is pretty key for a set. But so far, I love it!
