I originally wanted this product in the light wood finish, but it was out of stock. I went ahead and ordered the white, thinking it might work out, and now that I have it, I'm very glad I ended up getting white because it really brightens up the nursery. I assembled it myself, and although it was challenging, I had everything I needed, and I feel secure that it will hold up well to everyday use. One of the pieces did have a gash in it, however it was packaged in such a way that the gash was on an interior part. Since you can't see it, I didn't bother returning it as the rest of it was in excellent condition, and it was well packaged. I am very pleased with this changing table, and I looooove the hamper feature!
