Great not amazing
on 28 July 2016
I love these night tables! However I've taken a star off. This is because of the price, the assembly and the overall finished product.
For what you get, the price is a bit steep, in my opinion. I would have preferred to have at least £5 off (at time of purchase this product was £30).
A bit dear to me. I actually changed my mind and tried to cancel them due to finding a cheaper alternative, but it had already been shipped. I didn't want to refuse the parcel when it arrived so I decided to keep them after all.
The assembly is a bit daunting. But the instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Just make sure you stick to them! I can't stress that enough. It did take me a while to figure things out, but after assembling one I knew the drill and assembling the second was a lot faster
THE OVERALL FINISHED PRODUCT
It's a nice night table. It's high and big enough for us. The drawer is a little stiff but I can see that it will become smoother with a bit of use. I don't know why it doesn't have a back, I think it would have looked better with it. However I don't mind that it doesn't have one. The wood seems sturdy, however the black is just an outer layer laid on it, if that makes any sense? With age that layer tends to come away from the wood, crack and fall off. For the price I was expecting better quality if I'm honest. They are sturdy enough, it doesn't wobble or sway. I wouldn't get up on it and stand on it though. I like it ok but if I could go back in time I would have looked around a bit more and probably gotten a different product
