Not very good
The shape and size is excellent. But it is made from re-used wood and is very rough. Some surfaces look like a packing case. It would be ok for someone looking for such a finish, but it should be made clear in the catalogue this is what it looks like. The one I received had two large holes on the front of the door, beside the handle ( presumably where knots in the wood had fallen out). It made it look ugly and I would not have bought this if seen in a shop. I hate returning things and would have kept it and bought some wood filler but as the cupboard I bought at the same time had to be replaced because it had a split in the wood, I asked the telephone person if she could replace this also abd send one without the holes. She refused to replace it saying they all had holes and couldn't I see that on the catalogue picture. When I suggested it was unlikely they ALL had holes, she saud they did (how does she know -have tgey all come from the same tree?). She was so unhelpful that I asked her to remove it and arrange a refund. It has now been returned. I await a refund. All very disappointing. I have bought a replacement from John Lewis.

Myakka Comment: Thank you for your review. We are sorry that your small cabinet was not as expected. We are currently working on improving the information available to customers regarding our Stonemill collection. This range has been made from reclaimed pine wood so there will be some marks on the wood including small nail holes. We are very sorry that this was not made clear to you at the time of purchase.
perfect bedside cabinet
Order arrived a lot quicker than I expected. This is a nice solid bedside table. I was worried that the wood colouring would not match the other wood in the room but in fact it is neutral brown (not too dark nor too light) and so blended in well with everything. Good size top for radio, lamp and books and very useful large draw with an exceptionally useful open shelf. I bought a pair for my son's bedroom - now everything is off the floor and shoved onto the shelf. Fine by me as I don't have to pick things off the floor anymore to hoover the room.
