I searched and searched for the perfect combination of a full-length mirror and jewelry organizer and this one far exceeded my expectations. The quality is unbelievable and it matches my Ethan Allen bedroom set perfectly. It looks like I spent 3 times the money on this. My husband doubted that I would change my ways and stop leaving my jewelry all over the house and I have proved him wrong! It is so convenient to try on and store the jewelry in one place so I am keeping all of my jewelry in one place. My husband has commented a few times and said "you just love that mirror" and I really do! In addition, I found jewelry that I had totally forgotten about because it was in the bottom of a drawer or jewelry box and I find that I am not buying any more jewelry because I know what I already have to wear. This has it all except for a substantial place to store bracelets/bangles but if you or your man is handy, there is room to add longer hooks from the hardware store.
This is an outstanding piece. It's heavy, well made, the hinges are high quality and function smoothly. Due to it's weight, the installation can be problematic, but that's more as something to note rather than a reason to not buy this. It's solved my girl's jewelry storage needs with room to spare, and it looks great. Overstock FTW!
I read all reviews before purchasing this armoire. I must say it lived up to the reviews, it is beautiful. It is well made and heavy and has lots and lots of room for all my stuff. I buy from Overstock all the time, and this time again I was very pleased.
I'm delighted with the wall-mounted armoire. It arrived quickly and in great condition. It holds a lot of jewelry and looks very nice in our bedroom. The mirror is beveled and a nice size. Would recommend it to anyone wanting to make order out of disorder and save space too.
This armoire exceeded expectations and is one of the best online purchases I have ever made. The construction of the piece is exceptional and it is absolutely beautiful in our bedroom. There is a lot of room inside it -- if you are looking for primarily necklace storage this is the one for you! The only two improvements I would make is to add a hinge that would allow it to open all the way out and to improve the earring holders, which are minimal and have weird spacing. Since I bought the piece mainly for necklaces this wasn't a problem for me though. It makes a lovely large mirror just on its own as well. My husband was very impressed with the armoire too and didn't have much trouble installing it. Yes, it is quite heavy but it is very solidly made so that's a good thing! We installed it straight into wood so did not have to purchase additional hardware. It is also nice that it comes as one piece so you don't have to assemble anything. Just have some Goo Gone to get the sticky packing tape off of the mirror and then use some glass cleaner. I was hesitant about the cost of this item at first but I have to say that it really is worth every penny. I'm sure I will have this item for the rest of my life.
Although this amoire is very well made and heavy (about 40 lbs,) you are going to have to buy longer screws (heavy duty) to hang this. Make sure to find beams in walls and/or hang with white anchors into wall. You will need three of them.....also the lock did not match up..we had to adjust screws on door. Takes some time and effort but it was worth it. Looks very pretty in room and fits a good amount of jewelry.
We were blown away by how perfectly constructed and beautiful this piece was. I fully expected there to be nicks or breaks from shipping, but it was perfectly packed. It even smelled (pleasantly) of fresh wood polish. Plenty of jewelry hooks and nooks, high quality interior also. This jewelry armoire is absolutely beautiful, and far exceeded our expectations. Word of advice: this is a really BIG 4' tall and heavy unit. It comes with 3 anchor bolts, so if you are in a rental or temporary unit, and plan to remove it someday, I'd make sure I know a good plasterer before hanging this. This is almost heirloom quality furniture and built to last. My daughters are already calling 'dibs'.
Like this armoire. Its heavy and solid which can make hanging it a bit of a challenge but it did not take us too long, maybe 15mins. It has a good amount of storage space for comparable items, but they could have utilized a bit more of the space in a more efficient way and added more hooks or shelves instead of leaving unused space at the top. Overall I am happy with my purchase so far and would recommend it.
The piece looks exactly as it does online and is very pretty and well-made. It's very heavy and so we removed the door to hang it, which I recommend. The lock is a skeleton key and worked fine with a quarter turn. Unable to find studs in the location I needed it to be, we bought plastic drywall anchors with a weight load up to 70 lbs. We used a couple of extra ones, drilling through the case because I was wary of all the weight. This piece holds a lot of jewelry for sure but I have so much costume jewelry that it did not hold it all. I had to double and triple the chains I put on each hook. It's all relative as to what type of jewelry you have. For instance there is not nearly enough space for all my earrings; and too much space for rings. If it weren't for that "flaw" I would rate it 5 stars. That said, the quality of this armoire blows the ***** ones out of the water, and so I am happy I chose the Merriman. In time I think I will add a few of my own hooks because I feel there is sufficient space and it looks simple to do.
I do not want to recommend it to a friend, because , I WANT TO BE THE ONLY ONE with this very lovely, beautifully made, jewelry Armoire, The color and curved design match my antique bedroom set. Every thing is first class, the hooks, the wood box for little pieces. the matching antique looking key. I have a lot of jewelry that I NOW have in one place, so easy to find what you want to wear. You will not be disappointed with your purchase, The only thing I would recommend is that you consider using larger wall anchors. My husband was concerned with full weigh,t that the wall anchors that are included are to small to hold the weight of the Jewelry and the Armoire. It took him 20 minutes to have it up and ready to fill. I LOVE IT!!!!
