As a parent of little people, we know better than to buy expensive furniture. We bought this to use as a tv stand. When it was all put together I was so taken aback at how sturdy and heavy this piece of inexpensive furniture was. The design, of course, is not actual wood texture, but a piece of laminate over particle board. And although I was skeptical, it doesn’t look super cheap or super fake like I thought it might be for the price it was. Disclaimer: does not withstand moisture. Haha one of my little people set juice on it and spilled and now there is a raised bubble, warped spot. But like I said, we know better than to buy expensive furniture with little people around
This console was delivered, we started unpacking the pieces to put it together and there were two boards inside that were bent and cracked. Reluctantly, I thought I was going to return the piece but I was really hoping they could just ship out the two broken pieces. However, once we were deep into the directions & putting it together, I realized that the two pieces were put in the box to prevent damage to the actual console.
This product looks really nice once assembled, but if you’re expected super high quality, look elsewhere and be willing to spend more money. My husband started the assembly with a manual screwdriver. I do not recommend that. Power tools help immensely. The unit was pretty unstable feeling until we screwed the back on. The back does not have predrilled holes to screw into, so you’re screwing directly into the unit with very little guidance. Now that it’s assembled, it looks higher quality than what it is. The top is very sturdy and appears solid. The rest seems like an MDF. The back board is pretty flimsy but gets the job done. It’s perfect for our 55 inch tv to stand on. It’s a good viewing height as well.
