Altra Parsons End Table, It’s awful to assemble but it looks good after.

Just what i needed – we put our laser printer on it – which is pretty heavy. It’s just the perfect size for a brother hl model. I keep printer paper in the drawer and catalogs on the shelf, but it would also work for paper and you could store extra ink in the drawer. Sure it’s just cheap laminate, but it looks good and does the job and you can’t beat the price.

It’s awful to assemble but it looks good after. . After assembling this table i really enjoy it. Most of the assembly was manageable even without a drill, however, the bottom floor piece was almost impossible to screw into without a drill as there were no pre-drilled holes and the board is thick. It took a long and stressful time to attach that piece. Then after it was assembled we saw scratches on the top from struggling to screw in the bottom. Moral of the story: invest in a drill if you don’t already have one and this table won’t be too difficult to assemble and it will work and look good.

This is actually the second one of these i’ve purchased. I have one in each of my boys’ bedrooms next to their bed. It’s definitely a cheaper piece of furniture (particle board), but i like that it is sturdy and won’t tip over, and it has a little drawer to stash stuff.

Product extremely cheap – and came with wrong parts. Product is cheaply made, which is to be expected for the price. However, the box came with an incorrect part packed in there. Absolutely zero quality control, and i am unable to assemble without this part. Edit 7/13 *upgraded to 3 stars as the new part was sent relatively quickly, and worked. Still cheap – some loose fitting joints are impossible to fix, for instance – but workable. And hey, it’s actually cheap.

Inexpensive & helpful little table.

Assembly directions were easy to follow. Assembly directions were easy to follow, but some of the holes didn’t line up and had to be re-drilled. Also some of the cam lock screws didn’t go in very tightly. I was afraid it wasn’t going to be very sturdy once put together, but it was. I don’t have anything too heavy on it (just my daughter’s hamster cage and supplies in the drawer). It’s the perfect small table for what we use it for.

Nice end result. Takes a while to assemble. . Assembly was probably about a 5 on the easy scale (10 being easiest) it wasn’t ‘difficult’ per say but it was time consuming. Final product is nice but i’m pretty sure i watched a few episodes of a tv show while i was putting this thing together.

    Great night stand and well worth every penny. . This was a great buy for the price. Big enough for a lamp and a couple remotes and a drink at night. Make sure the drink is on a coaster though because the wood does seem to pick up moisture. For the price though, this is a great item.

      The quality could have been better. It’s a cute night stand, however two of the pieces came damaged. Since i already have paid someone to assemble it, i didn’t want to return it.
