While this was not expensive, you pretty well get what you pay for. It is very attractive, but very cheap quality. The wood is like a pressed board, but worse is the finish. The white outside is like a paper that is glued on. You might not notice on first glance, but some of the corners were not glued down well so I had to glue them down myself. (Had I not needed it right away for a shower gift, I'd have kept looking for something else or at least ordered another to see if it was in better shape.) This certainly won't last long, but for the price I consider it throw-away furniture.
