Hope it helps!

Lovely.

The design looks nice, but if you are going to spend that kind of money, I prefer Oak.

Second hand furniture/antiques are cheap as chips at the moment. Some of the charity shops also sell brand new furniture and this design reminds me of some I have seen.

Good quality brand new furniture can't go wrong th

I have to say, that this pine is a very soft wood and it does get dings and marks fairly quick, it specially, if you are clumsy or have a small children. My local BHF that sells Corona furniture as new are always charging around £30-£50 more (not counting delivery), than you can find on ebay and elsewhere.
Personally I needed this for my baby's room, to keep his clothes in and have them organized, so for the price and mostly the dimensions this is perfect for us.

I have the bigger four drawer unit with two cupboards and apart from the slightly laborious construction which I actually didn't mind too much I have to say the final finish, on mine at least, was fairly shoddy. Lots of knots full of filler which were thankfully on the rear surfaces , and several of the edges and bevels were rough and clearly un-sanded (mostly on the cupboard doors so possibly less of an issue with this unit, but also on the top).
In the end I had to take a sheet of sandpaper to it and give it all a coat of clear beeswax as the wood looked pale and very dry/unprotected. Certainly didn't look as good as it does in the image. That said looks nice enough now and on balance probably not a bad price. Make sure you wax the drawer runners and contact points as it glides wood on wood.

You get what you pay for, have this exact unit and the finish is not great, marks very easily and wood is at the lower end of the quality spectrum

Put mine together yesterday. Took twice longer than estimated. Quite unclear instructions, peaces are not numbered so you have to figure it out your self and illustrative images are not much help. But got there at the end. So here it is:

I'm happy with the finish and I think it is definitely worth the money.
