All Sideboard Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2020
Yeah they cancelled my order because of stock but I did go and order again from a diff store and picked them up 2 days later just fine. Generally agree though
ARGOS DEALS SHOULD BE BLOCKED FRON HUKD. Every single deal is out of stock.
Many reasons. Keeping expenditures low, being unable to fit prebuilt bits of furniture into the house or the upstairs through tiny hallways/awkward ceiling placements or possibly the enjoyment of putting something together. That enough information?
I bought 2 of these yesterday and Argos has now cancelled the order prior to delivery for no reason. Deal done maybe? Or just out of stock, not sure.
Bought today. Happy enough.
As a counterpoint, it's not usually the timberand furniture industry responsible for the devastation of the amazon. It's moronic farmers and consumers with no discerning in their choices. Timber producers have a vested interest in keeping the forest regenerating, cattle ranchers not so much....
Quite disgusting frankly that they are still making and selling furniture made of new mahogany as the Amazon is deforested faster than ever.
Welcome to the 1950's... I am old enough to have seen furniture like this when I was very young. Brings back memories, some of them not good. Like tacky furniture, due to materials shortages, even 5 years after the war ended. Do not sit on it, the spindly legs look like they are just about to break even without any top loading. 50 kilograms, yeah, right! On a positive note, thanks to the person posting this for taking the time and trouble to inform us of this. There may be someone that wants this despite the obvious detractions it has. (Maybe I am getting a bit too grumpy from the lockdown...)
Any links to an IKEA equivalent?
This looks proper cheap and tacky but I need one and Ikeas shut :/
i just think that looks a little expensive and the build seems fragile
Then how can I get this for £20 from IKEA?
That's a fair price for the pieces, considering a similar look TV unit alone from Argos is £169 when not reduced. All items are manufactured from MDF with wood effect foil applied to the surfaces. Heat added as very decent enough if you're going for the industrial look, which I love although not a deal for me as I have my lounge kitted out.
Same, we have the lowline small TV stand, we are considering buying the coffee table next because we are so impressed with the colour and quality.
Was so pleased with the first one I ordered another, excellent quality
Anyone bought from this range? What’s the quality like
Wouldn't let my order go through.
Doesn't look a pound over £68.50!!
I got one the same size as the picture but with 3 drawers in the middle. I agree about the instructions, we put a couple of bits on wrong too. But it is solid and I do like it.
Just bought their bedside table recently, assembled well but instructions could have clearer images as to which way items should be placed - ended up with the top on backwards at one point.
Had one of these from Mercer's , solid units but possibly worth buying some better quality screws to make building it easier . Check box straight away as odd one turns up with split wood but Mercer's good with returns .
What a hunk of junk
NO... its tat and crap tat at that!!
The width is too long and height is too short other than that it looks good. This is more like a TV stand than a storage cupboard
Check the other pictures... Looking good (y)
Looks like a piece GCSE design tech coursework made with leftoversfrom a kitchen renovation. That thing looks terrible.
I've had this stuff from Mercer's , good solid wood but worth a few quid to buy your own screws as the supplied ones are not the best
I have this. Fell apart within a year. Joints weak and cheap materials. Looks fine though.
You need to stop taking that class A stuff.
I own this. I kneeled down to take a closer look and when breathing too close to it, this happened..
Mine still has a burp mark on it (fierce)
Pine might be soft, but this furniture is still way better than chipboard rubbish and probably cheaper too.
Code works on selected eBay sellers. You may need to check the main eBay 15% discount thread from @reindeer333 for the sellers.
Not if you prime and varnish it first it should be okay.
Really? I was going to put a fish tank on it. would that be stupid to do so?
I think it's free if it says Free on Buy it from page. You can always contact Amazon to sort it out.
I assembled a few Coronas myself and have to say it is made of very soft wood so I always put 2 coats of floor varnish before assembling to prolong their life. It usually looks good considering the cost, right choice for kids' bedroom etc..
Got this Friday via ebay ( free next day del with DHL IIRC). Went together fine. Looks good. Feels solid. Money well spend (so far!). I guess the wood is soft but didn't find it a problem - mainly because the Mrs is impatient and built it while I was out. Took a little while to put together (apparently) but all good. link to ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Corona-3-Door-3-Drawer-Sideboard-Large-Mexican-Solid-Pine-by-Mercers-Furniture/271683642810
Went together fine. Looks good. Feels solid. £68 well spend so far!
Thanks OP. Bought a very cheap Mercers bedside cabinet last time. Was very impressed for the money so have gone for this too. Have read some have had a few minor quality niggles, the majority haven't. So will report back when its built!
I recently got a similar one from Mercer (three drawers down middle instead of cupboard). They delivered within a couple of days and once built it is a good solid piece of furniture. (y)
Funny you should say that, I already have one and painted it up grey and varnished to top. Looks great.
You've come to the right place !
Thanks for sharing. Going to get one and paint it up! Hopefully they’ll give me a tracking number so I can make sure I’m home when it’s coming though!
Excellent I was just looking for a Corona 3 Door 3 Drawer Sideboard Large Mexican Solid Pine - £78.39 with code @ mercersfurniture1995 eBay
Doesnt seem to work anymore. There is the price shown on the website but no Buy it button :(
Yes thought so myself.thanks awesome 8)
Very nice!! Doesn’t suit my living room unfortunately but seems great price! (y)
Made out of old pallets
Again, I have a couple of pieces, and it really isn't. They're both solid pine and have been nicely sanded and treated. Much better than the lacquered chipboard most modern furniture is made out of.
It's cheap rough wood, horrible to look at, you get what you pay for
I ended up buying a tank with stand instead today. I wouldn't worry about .5 cm over hang though personally
I was thinking would make a good tank stand too. You might have to add additional braces also maybe ask the question to the seller? It’s 40cm wide though and my 200litre tank is 40.5cm wide so check your dimensions I’d probably want a bit of wiggle room
I bought the 2 drawer version of this 5 years ago, good quality, quite heavy too. Still got it.
We bought this Corona stuff for our first house. It's really not very good quality but I suppose that's subjective. Soft wood, crappy hardware, unfinished wood. Served its purpose for us so shouldn't complain I guess.
Bought this item from this seller over a year ago. Furniture is good quality and sturdy for the money. Very heavy and came in 3 boxes! haha
Bought from Mercer's on eBay quite a few times now. Good customer service when needing 3 replacement panels due to splits on 3 different units. Look good painted and stained too.
Looks good value
