This nightstand looks much more expensive than it is. I bought two of them and put them together in the same evening myself. It took a grand total of about 2 hours and 15 minutes to assemble both nightstands. Assembly is easy, but many of the pieces did not come labeled and you had to spend time figuring out the backs and fronts. The first nightstand took about 1 hour and 15 minutes to assemble, since I read the directions very carefully. The second took about 45 mins to assemble, after I sorted all the pieces. Assembly requires a Phillips screwdriver and a hammer. If you want to put them together faster, get another person and let them build the drawers while you build the cabinet. Other than the lack of labels on the pieces, there are two things about these nightstands that could be improved. First, the drawer bottoms are made of particle board that is about one-eighth of an inch thick and there are no extra supports for the drawers. I'm not sure how well that will last, so I'm going to add some supports or look into getting real wood to replace the cheap drawer bottoms. Second, the screw heads on the sides get covered with those cheap plastic screw covers. why not counter sink them and use nice plugs? Overall, I really like the nightstands and highly recommend them. They look nice. They are stylish. They are slightly taller than my very tall sleigh bed. The reddish espresso color goes well with the reddish mahogany finish on my sleigh bed, too. The nightstands are also pretty solid and weight about 25 pounds each. The back was impressive as well-- not a cheap piece of cardboard that comes with most furniture in a box. Instead, the back was a thick piece of particle board, just like you find on real furniture in expensive stores these days. By getting the set of two Walmart sells, I paid about $167 (including tax), instead of $95 each. Good, inexpensive buy and I have matching nightstands!
