My Winsome Wood End Table/Night Stand With Door And Shelf In Black REVIEW


One of my recent clients asked me if I could review one of the furniture pieces he had in mind to buy, the Winsome Wood End Table/Night Stand With Door and Shelf in Black. I’ve come across this night stand once, so I have a very clear opinion about it.

If you want to find out whether it’s a furniture piece that I recommend or not, follow the next lines and you will learn everything you want to know about this Winsome Night Stand.

If I had to sum up this product in just a few words, I would say “price=quality”. I’ve seen this thing on Amazon too, while I wrote a review of this night stand there, and many people had similar opinions to mine.

But before I tell you anything else, I prefer to show you what I liked and what I didn’t like about this furniture piece. It’s better to see these real facts and make a decision by yourself.

My Winsome Wood End Table/Night Stand With Door And Shelf In Black REVIEWProduct name:  END TABLE/NIGHT STAND WITH DOOR AND SHELF (BLACK)


Price:  $27.83 (At the time when I published this article)

Cheapest place to buy:  AMAZON

My rating:  8.50 /10

Worth buying? : RIGHT NOW, YES (Check out the 54% sale)



  • It has a pretty nice aspect, the piece in black that I had didn’t really look like a $50 night stand
  • The dimensions aren’t very large and the product itself isn’t very heavy, it actually seems pretty light and small
  • I would define it as “simple and elegant”
  • The assembly isn’t very difficult and it lasts pretty little. I assembled it in about 30 minutes, with little help, but one person alone can easily handle it too
  • The reason why the assembly was so easy is because the instructions were very clear
  • When it comes to the price, I only have praises, I don’t think I’ve found such a great price for any night stand on Amazon (or on any other site)
  • If you buy it from the right place, you can get 54% off and free shipping on Amazon (I will show you below)
  • International shipping is available in most countries
  • There are 2 color options to choose from: I chose the black piece, but you can go for the natural, lighter one


  • To be honest, the quality isn’t very high, and by this I mean that it’s not really as it is described on Amazon
  • The official description claims it to be a study, solid furniture pieces, but it’s actually rather light
  • It doesn’t seem to be made of natural, high-quality wood
  • I don’t know about the other pieces, but the one I bought smelled terribly, I can’t understand how and why

As you probably noticed from these pros and cons, I can’t really say I’m a huge fan of this night stand or that I would highly recommend it to everyone. Actually, depending on your budget and how much you’re willing to pay for a higher quality, there are other options, which I personally like better.

But for now, let’s focus on the Winsome Wood End Table/Night Stand With Door and Shelf in Black.

In the paragraphs below, I will give you a more detailed review of this product and I will also tell you more about the things I liked, but especially about the ones that I didn’t like about it.


Looks nice and light, but…

When it comes to the general aspect, I really  liked this night stand. I was expecting something more sturdy and heavy, because that’s what I’ve seen in the Amazon description, but in reality it looked much smaller and lighter. 

My Winsome Wood End Table/Night Stand With Door And Shelf In Black REVIEW

Picture 1 is how it looks on Amazon and Picture 2 how it looks in reality. Pretty similar, right? 🙂

I didn’t really need a hard, solid furniture piece so I was quite pleased that it was lighter than it claimed to be.

I was planning to use it as a night stand, and in my bedroom I don’t have a lot of unnecessary stuff (that’s one of the main steps for an elegant bedroom, read my detailed article), so I didn’t really need a solid piece, just because there wasn’t much stuff to put on it.

But…there is always a but.

I’m sure there are people out there who wanted a solid night stand and they got a small, lighter one instead, which isn’t probably the best thing in the world.

So I’m quite disappointed that the product isn’t the way it promises to be.

It’s true that for this price, I couldn’t even expect to get a sturdy, massive wood night stand, but at least it could have been more solid…

Anyway, you can use it even if you need a solid piece, that would also hold heavier items on it.

It’s not like it would break down, it’s just that it doesn’t look like those expensive, high-quality night stand you see in furniture shops, that’s all.

I haven’t heard of anyone having it broken because of too much weight or something like that.

So I guess you shouldn’t worry too much that it couldn’t hold your items, there are very little chances that this happens.

So if you’re looking for a pretty, small night stand and you don’t have a huge number of items to place on it, the Winsome Wood End Table/Night Stand With Door And Shelf In Black would be a suitable choice, especially if you want an affordable product.


I loved the assembly, it was fun. A lot of fun!

Although I’ve come across a lot of Amazon products that were impossible to assemble (literally!), this one was actually really cool. 

The instructions are written in a proper English (I say this because I’ve seen products whose instructions must have been written by a complete illiterate) and they are very clear and easy to follow.

You are told exactly what pieces you have to put together, where to put X and Y, so you can’t really make any mistake, no matter how unaccustomed you are with this kind of products.

It was actually pretty fun, though I didn’t assemble this night stand all by myself, I managed to finish in about half an hour. This says it all actually, given that I’m by no means a technical expert.

So don’t worry if you don’t know too much about how to assemble general products, these instructions are really easy and will help you a lot. I can guarantee that you’ll assemble it perfectly. 😀


That smell is impossible to explain 

Okay, so I’ve bought a lot of products from Amazon, I’ve seen different types of fabrics and different kinds of ways in which they were made. But I have never, but never, seen a product that smells so weird…

Let me tell you the story from the beginning: after I finished to assemble it, I noticed it had a pretty strange smell, something like paint but not really, it’s hard to explain…

Anyway, I thought it was just the smell it had originally, you know that many products smell in a certain way when you buy them, but it goes away after some time.

But the problem is that in this case it didn’t!

My Winsome Wood End Table/Night Stand With Door And Shelf In Black REVIEWI waited for a day, two days, one week, one month, and the same… It still has that strong, weird smell, and I didn’t manage to make it go away with anything.

I tried using strong fragrances, sprays and a lot of other products, and I managed to make it less annoying, but not completely.

Maybe repainting it would solve all this, but I haven’t tried it yet. I should, probably. For now I’ve just been spraying it every 3 or 4 days, and this manages to hide the smell partially.

So I don’t know where it comes from or what exactly causes it, I just know that I hate it, because it’s not a nice smell at all. It’s not like that classic paint smell, which doesn’t bother me at all, it’s something stronger and heavier, but not in the good sense.

Now I don’t know if it’s just about my piece or if it’s something specific to this product, but that smell is definitely the biggest downside for me. I just don’t understand why, besides the fact that the quality isn’t the highest, why it couldn’t just smell normally, or have no smell…I can’t really explain it. 🙁


How to get 54% off for this product, don’t miss it!

When I bought this night stand, I was lucky enough to find it on a sale, but I admit it wasn’t as impressive as this one.

A few days ago when I checked this product, it only had a 7% discount and right now it has nothing less than 54%. All I can say is WOW!!!

My Winsome Wood End Table/Night Stand With Door And Shelf In Black REVIEW

Imagine, you can get this night stand for less than half of its initial price. From what I see, it’s an Amazon bestseller, so I guess many people are taking advantage of this amazing offer.

So I really advise you not to miss this great opportunity if you want a light night stand. It may not be highest-quality furniture piece you can find, but it’s a real bargain right now. The problem is that I don’t know how long they will keep this really small price, so I advise you to take advantage of it as fast as you can.

By clicking on the link below, you will have 54% off and free shipping if your order is over $49. That’s a pretty low amount of money, so if you want to buy other things too, make sure you buy them together so that you get a free shipping.

*IMPORTANT NOTE: Meanwhile, the price rose back to $55, but I’ve looked around and noticed that they still have a few pieces that they sell for $27.83, you just have to know where to find them.

I will add the link below, together with a picture in order to show you where to find the pieces that cost only $27.

I don’t know for how long you’ll find these cheap pieces, but you definitely have to try to see if they’re still available. Notice that this article was written on May 3th.

So, to buy or not to buy this night stand?

Well, you might have been tempted to say it’s a really low-quality, useless product, but things aren’t really like this. 

It may not be the sturdiest night stand you’ve ever seen, but it can hold enough items both on and inside it. At least in my case, I couldn’t have asked for more space.

If you want a high-quality, massive wood night stand, then you probably wouldn’t like this one too much, so I advise you to look for another one. But keep in mind that you won’t find what you’re looking for for less than $250.

But if you want a smaller, nice looking night stand and you don’t have a very high budget, the Winsome Wood End Table/Night Stand With Door And Shelf In Black could be just what you’re looking for.

Even if you don’t need it right now, you can simply buy it for later or give it as a gift, for this incredible price it’s totally worth buying. 😉


So what do you think about this night stand? Would you try it for this low price?

    I’m looking for much better quality furniture right now with my wife. We just moved into our first apartment and we want the best we can find. Also going for a more neutral color tone for decorating. We need curtains bad! She’s pregnant and it’s really hard to sleep with the sun blazing in every morning. So that’s next on our to-do-list.

    This night stand seems suitable, especially that’s it’s a real bargain, just like you said, so I’ll definitely take a look at it.

    • Anne says:

      Hey Benjamin, thanks for reading my review 🙂

      I hope you find the right furniture pieces, this Winsome night stand is really affordable so you can consider it 🙂

    Nowadays there are a lot of different materials used to create furniture and even though they say solid, it does not mean solid wood. A lot of them are laminations or glues and wood products compressed with a great looking finish applied.

    I have found if you take care not to bump or do anything out of the ordinary to cause damage this furniture peaces can last for a long time.I’m sure this is true when it comes to this nightstand too.The discounted price certainly makes it a real consideration for purchasing, so I’ll write it down on my list.

    Thank you for the review!

    • Anne says:

      Hi, thank you for reading my blog.

      You’re right, taking good care of anything would make it last much longer, and furniture pieces make no exception. So the care could be a factor for the durability of a product.

      I’m glad you liked this night stand 🙂

  3. AnthonyNG says:

    First of all, this is a good review on a cheap product. A table stand under $50 but been carefully examined and analyzed the pros and cons. The product sounds as good as a regular furniture. If I need one night stand, I will buy it . The content of this website is too good. I wish I can build a website like this

    • Anne says:

      Hi Anthony, I’m glad you enjoyed reading it.

      Hahaha thank you for your words, I’m really happy to hear you appreciate the content from my site 😀

      This night stand is a really worth buying furniture piece, so yeah, you’ll make a great deal buying it in the future.

      Thank you for reading my review!

  4. Richard says:

    I’ve got to tell you, I am a little nervous about the smell! My wife has very sensitive olfactory glands and I can imagine that we would get it home, at this GREAT price, and ours would smell as bad as yours!

    Do you know if Amazon has a return policy if my wife can’t handle the smell?

    • Anne says:

      Hi Richard, I understand what you mean. I don’t think Amazon would give a return policy for this kind of reason…

      Once again, I’m not sure if all the pieces have this weird smell, but mine does. It disappears if I use some spray, even a light one, but you’re totally right, it’s not normal for a night stand to smell like this.

      I’ll try to find out if they offer a return policy for, let’s say “other kinds of manufacturing defects” and I’ll let you know. 🙂

    You’ve put me right off with the smell !!

    I first looked at this and thought it looked great for the money $27 is nothing really for a night stand. Yes we would all probably go for solid wood, but for a child’s bedroom where the furniture gets knocked about these look great

    I would just need to get past the smell bit although I suppose that I could always send it back?

    • Anne says:

      Hi Wayne, haha, it wasn’t my purpose to put you off 😀

      I’m not sure if you can send it back…Actually you should have this possibility, but you’ll have to find a better answer because this one would seem a little weird, though it’s a really viable reason.

      Once again, I don’t know if all the pieces have this smell, but mine did. For the others, I can’t really guarantee.

      But anyway, you can use a spray or a fragrance to cover that smell and I can assure you it works perfectly. If you do it once a week, you’ll never feel that smell again. Repainting it could be another great option, at least in theory because I haven’t tried it myself.

      Overall, despite this big downside with the smell, I say it’s really worth buying the Winsome Nightstand because you can get rid of the bad smell pretty easily but you can’t find another nightstand with such a great price!

  6. Pitin says:

    Hi Anne,

    The price is a winner and the space it will consume in my small room is just nice. I just worry about the corners being at almost the same height as my 3 yr old toddler. She often runs around the house and even those safety corner bumpers don’t help!

    Do you know of a similar deal but the corners of the sides of the night stand are less sharper?



    • Anne says:

      Hey Pitin, I never thought about this thing before. I don’t have any kids, but yes, now that I think about it, I agree that these sharp corners wouldn’t be the safest thing for kids.

      A similar furniture piece I could recommend you would be another one from Winsome, and by “similar” I mean the price. Because the design isn’t really as elegant as this night stand I reviewed in this post, but at least it has much safer corners. 😀

      If you still want a more elegant nightstand, you might want to take a look at this. It is $10 more expensive, but it also look much better, in my opinion. And not to forget, this one also has safe corners.

      Hope this helps 🙂
