I ordered this end table for my mother, who lives in a nursing home, and has a small room. It is just the right size to set beside her recliner, and seems to be very sturdy. Having two shelves and a drawer (works very nicely), she will have lots of room for her books, newspapers, magazines, greeting cards, photos etc, and they will be right at her fingertips. My husband and I put this table together, with no problems. The direction sheet was very well done...very easy to understand. No parts missing, and unbelievable how well it was packed for shipping! We are well satisfied with this end table, and highly recommend it.
