My fiance and I bought this as our first dresser. We love it! Both of us love working with our hands, so putting it together was not a problem because we had our tools prepared. However, the instructions that came with our dresser were a little wrong. We were having a difficult time getting the drawers to feed on to the tracks and noticed the instructions told us to put the tracks on backwards. Also, a few times the instructions tell you to put dowels in the place the screws should go. It was easy to figure the last one out, but the tracks were a little confusing.
If you are purchasing this dresser be prepared with a cordless drill, rubber mallet, pliers (for getting dowels out when they tell you to put them in the wrong place) and a hand held flat head screw driver to lock the locking bolts in place.
I purchased this dresser based on my previous experiences with Overstock.com pieces. This dresser, however, was terrible. The instructions were extremely difficult to interpret and left out a lot of steps. I am not a novice at assembling furniture, but this was the worst. In fact, the compressed sawdust dowels broke, are not of consistent length, and were either too small or too large for the holes. The screws are so cheap they begin to disintegrate when you use an electric screwdriver. I can usually whip through assembling furniture. I spent four hours and got so frustrated I packed the piece back into its box and thought I'd return it, until I found out that UPS will charge me to pick it up to return. I'm now going to give it to the Salvation Army for their rehabilitation center. I might as well have flushed my $$$ down the toilet.
My husband and I are very pleased with this purchase. We had no problems putting it together, took us about an hour for each (we bought two). Despite the problems other reviewers have had, we found the instructions were clear and no parts were missing. One drawer was damaged and Overstock quickly sent us a replacement.

The Alsa 4-drawer Chest is very solid and sturdy. It's a good value for the money and looks nice with the Alsa bed. I had a some difficulty putting it together, mostly because I had never put a dresser together before. If I had to do it again it would take half of the time.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? good
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very solid and sturdy

Contrary to other reviews I had no trouble at all putting this together. It's a nice product, but the drawers aren't quite as sturdy as you would find when you pay significantly more. But, there are no problems with it at all. The color matches perfectly and it's a nice piece of furniture.
I purchased the Alsa 4 drawer chest for my guest room. I was quite surprised to find that it is a great piece of furniture. The quality and look is compatible to pieces I own that are worth ten times as much. It was easy to assemble and looks great with the other furniture in the room. Very happy with the purchase.
We already had the bed frame so we got the night stands and dressers, but the nightstands were particularly difficult to put together. This is because of the directions (or lack thereof). They're nice, but be warned about the assembly...
I think that for the money, this is a decent piece of furniture. However, it is a bit smaller than I imagined. I mean, this was my own stupidity when measuring it out, but the drawers are much smaller than I expected. Thankfully I ordered two because there is no way one would hold all my stuff. The drawers are not big enough to hold bulky sweaters or jeans, just shirts and lightweight clothing. My boyfriend managed to put this thing together by himself in a couple of hours. He said the instructions were fine and he is not the most experienced furniture builder. I asked him how it went because of all the negative reviews on here. He said they are pretty easy to follow. The drawers roll smoothly and the wood is a nice quality… just smaller than expected.
I got the bed, night stands and this dresser from this set and the dresser is my favorite piece! From other reviews I was concerned it would arrive damaged but mine was in perfect condition. It went together easy in about 2 hours and feels very sturdy. I enjoy assembling things but I didn't think that the directions were unclear. One note, when attaching drawer slides to drawers I think the directions show 3 screws but I only had enough screws included to attach with two. Two screws is plenty though and everything looks great in my room. As with anything like this, it is possible to assemble the drawer slides backwards. There is a left and right component to consider and the slides mounted on the main body should be positioned rollers forward and the ones on the drawers should be mounded rollers toward the back. Keep that straight and everything should go together smooth.
24.5 inches wide. 13.25 inches deep. The sides are 6 inches high and there's another inch above that to the next drawer so the total drawer height is about 7 inches.newnutmeg on Mar 16, 2014
Why don't the dresser, chest, and night stand come assembled enough to where the customer only has to slide in the drawers. Or offer assembly with your white glove service? I would rather pay than struggle through lifting all those parts myself. I really like the set, but I am elderly, recently widow, no help and no clue how to go about putting together furniture.tiamichelle on Jan 16, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
