I bought a wrought iron head board and footboard from another retailer and did not buy the matching bedside table because I was hoping it would go on sale. Well unfortunately they clearanced it out and I missed it so I needed a bedside table to match. This is great. Very easy to put together and the bottom shelf is nice to stack a few books or a candle. I wish it was a little bit bigger but it fits a lamp and a framed picture with ease and as I said the bottom shalf helps aleviate some of the clutter. Worth the price.
