Beautiful, but flawed (and not in a good way)
on January 15, 2018
I’ve been so conflicted as to how I should review this nightstand. I ordered two of them to have a matching set, and they are by no doubt gorgeous. They make my room look so much better than before. I love the carvings on the wood, the style of the legs, and the knob on the drawer. I also believe their claims that it’s made of real wood.
All this being said, both of the nightstands I received were very flawed. The assembly should have been easy, despite the entirely useless instructions, but when screwing in the bottom of one of the legs to the longer portion of the leg (with the wooden panel between them), the whole socket for the screw (please forgive my incorrect terminology) came out. I tried to glue it back in over night, but it just came out again. I settled on putting the others in and just having one very unstable leg that I have to be very careful with. In the other nightstand I received, one of the screw sockets in the longer portion of the leg was put in sideways, so that the rest of the leg would be a bit sideways. This not only made for a slightly sideways leg, but also created a lot of tension between the legs, making it so that the nightstand might not make it too long before it breaks. This was very disappointing.
Aside from the major flaws, the distressing on the top of the nightstand and on the little panel below is strangely symmetrical and doesn’t look too good. It just kind of looks damaged by a machine or something that dragged across the top and scraped it perfectly. I will post a picture of that. Other than that, the rest of the distressing is good.
The drawer of the table was already in the top portion which you don’t have to assemble at all (thank goodness) and works very well, but it is an incredibly small drawer. You can fit a book or maybe two in there.
I would recommend this product to someone if it didn’t have the major flaws that mine did because it’s an absolutely beautiful table for a pretty low price. But even so, I don’t think it’s worth the money if it is as flawed as mine.
