Hastings Bedside Chest
useful but not very beautiful
I bought a pair of these for our guest bedroom. I'd been looking for simple, but nice-looking pine bedside cabinets, which turn out to be harder to find than a few years ago. These cabinets are of useful size and design, but I was disappointed with the appearance of the pine tops, which looked cheaper than in the photos online. I'm not much smitted with the metal handles on the drawers either, and will probably change these to wooden ones.

Poorly finished at rear.
I've just arranged to return these bedside tables to M&S at a cost of £50.00 (ouch!).
The reason, well I consider them to be poorly finished at the rear, which consists of a piece of hardboard tacked on with a staple gun.
I know the back is normally out of sight but for this sort of price, in today's competitive market I expect more, especially from M&S.

Bigger than we thought and a bit sharp...
Lovely chests, well made. Excellent delivery and all good. They are rather larger than we had expected. The corners are very sharp so watch out when placing them close to your bed!!

This bedside chest has been a very good buy .I am pleased with the size and quality, it sits very well in my bedroom and has proved to be big enough to accommodate a small television .
