I ordered this piece and the 9 drawer dresser for our Master Bedroom. I had been looking for dressers in stores and online for close to 2 years. I finally settled on these and could not be happier! The two dresser came in 7 - 40 pound boxes (ouch) and they took my father and husband and brother about 6 hours to assemble both. But, the end result is absolutely worth it. They are heavy and sturdy. The drawers slide very well.
Of note: The color is a dark chocolate brown with an espressor grain and semi gloss finish. The inner pieces of the drawers are solid black (maybe MDF, not particle board), but the pieces that show are wood. The pulls are a heacy duty shiny gunmetal type finish. There is not dust barrier; meaning there is no flat horizontal piece within the dresser dividing each drawer.
I had been searching for a month for a dresser that didnt look cheap, but I wasnt willing to pay the price for an expensive dresser. I found this one and based on the reviews went for it. The previous reviews were 100% correct in my opinion. The dresser does end up looking expensive and you would never know it was assembled at home.. It is truly enormous though. It weighs 300lbs (comes in 4 boxes). As far as the assembly, all the reviewers warned it was tricky so we really took our time and were very carfeul and we got it done in just under 5 hours. However I do recommend setting aside a whole day to assemble because it was very tricky, had a ton of pieces and we had to do alot of guessing and got lucky.
All in all I am amazed how great it looks for the price and, if you have a lot of space and a power drill, I would highly reccomend it!!
Beautiful dresser, however very difficult to assemble. Actually had to omit using about 10 screws in the frame because the pre-drilled holes did not line up. Took 2 nights to put it together, about 4 hours each night. Must have 2 people to assemble, very heavy. But now that it's put together, we love it.
Shipping issues with Overstock and UPS: It took a week to receive the 70 lbs + heavy boxes by UPS. One box was missing and showed on the tracking system to be on the truck for delivery everyday for about a week even though I kept stating the obvious, itís not on the truck! Overstock spent another week tracking down the error and sending me the missing box. The box arrived and when I opened it I found the front face frame was broken. I think the manufacturer did not pack the piece well enough for the weight and the span of the front frame. (This is the full front section that the drawers slide into)
The construction is poor considering the price. Hardware is weak metal and easy it easy to strip the cam locks if you are not very careful. The hex tool is not included, which surprised me. The drawers and all large pieces are constructed with these fasteners and wooden dowels. The large drawers will not hold up to this type of fasteners over years of use. The drawer hinges are cheap and instructions do not mention clearly how to install.
I am trained in wood furniture construction and have all the tools to complete a project like this in about 5 1/2 hours. I used power screw drivers (clutched to lowest settings), hex screw drivers (all by hand), rubber mallet, glue and clamps (repairs). In my opinion, the project would take a couple days for most weekend warriors and there are many opportunities to ruin the project if care is not taken on these steps. This 9-drawer piece of furniture takes a lot of time to construct and if you have a choice, buy yours already built locally.
I considered sending it back once I opened the damaged piece, but there's your problem. Now you have to figure out how to re-package the jig-saw pieces of each of four boxes. It would take a genius to get everything packed back up and then deal with sending back. I decided to make the repairs and build the project.
Finished result is nice. It's a big piece with plenty of storage. Nine drawers, you would think my wife would share at least one! At least I have my 60" on top, so complaints there! I have constructed hundreds of pre-built furniture kits. This one rates about a 2-3 out of 10 for poor packaging, poor instructions (needed larger illustrations with better diagrams), poor hardware quality, poor construction design, and poor wood quality (soft wood does not hold up to this type of fastening hardware system). In comparison, my IKEA projects are always easy to build and the craftsmanship is there, always. I expected more for the price on this piece of furniture. I also have two matching night stands to build. Lucky me!
The finish project is beautiful, getting there was a real nightmare. Buyer be warned.
We recently remodeled a beach condo and bought all new furniture. Being a bargain hunter, who also likes good quality, I was drawn to this set by the appearance and great reviews. I was NOT disappointed! I purchased the chest and two nightstands as I didn't think we had room for the dresser. Once the remodel was completed, I realized that the 9-drawer dresser would fit and returned the chest and got the dresser. My son put all together and seemed to have a pretty easy time, though he is pretty handy, and does have an electric drill which served as the screwdriver. It didn't take him as long as others have reported....an hour for each of the nightstands and two hours for the dresser. I helped by screwing on the knobs! The finished products are BEAUTIFUL and really fit the room well. The room is not that large, but I love the size of the nightstands, as we really needed to maximize storage. You can't lose on this one...GREAT furniture at a GREAT price!

This dresser is the real deal. It's a heavy, solid, sturdy piece of furniture. I would expect to pay over $**** for this in a furniture store... the only downside is that it is very labor-intensive to assemble. It literally took my husband and I two days to assemble, and it would easily take double that time for only one person to put together. If you are looking to save a few bucks though, it's worth the hassle. It was missing a few pieces, and there were some scratches and nicks on the exterior, but after all the hard work it wasn't worth sending the parts in for replacement. I have actually never noticed the imperfections after the initial assembly anyways...
Thought it was going to be a feat to put together, based on the reviews. But we love it!!! It's sturdy and beautiful. At first we thought it was put together wrong because some of the drawers were tighter than others, but it seems OK now. I am showing it off and getting compliments from friends who paid way more for their furniture. Delivery was to the front door only, so you need help getting it inside. Also, it comes in 4 huge boxes. Totally worth it so far
Let me start by saying I love all the items in this bedroom collection. I own two nightstands, this dresser, and the taller 6 drawer dresser. The whole collection is high quality and very durable. I just moved and everything held up great. That being said, consider two items. 1. It is a pain to put together. The directions were clear, it just took forever. Of course I was assembling all the items around the same time so I may be blending the whole experience together. And 2. The top three drawers are useless for anything but junk drawers. They are very shallow. The drawers in general are a little shallower than I would prefer, but the overall quality of the piece is fantastic. I recommend it, but do not try to put it together by yourself!

This is an awesome piece of furniture. I was looking for a large dresser for on a huge empty wall- this is perfect. It is large and substantial and makes a statement with presence. The boxes that the shipment arrived in were too heavy to carry and I had to empty them and take one piece at a time to my upstairs bedroom. Not one piece of this dresser is assembled, and someone who has not assembled furniture or shelving might be overwhelmed by it. I have put together a lot of similar items (sauder, ikea, etc) and I found this similar. It was time consuming, but not difficult. It is definitely a two person job. It took a friend of mine and I somewhere between 6-8 hours to assemble. I did not have any missing or damaged parts. Now that it is assembled and in use, I am very pleased with the large size of the drawers and I still love the way it looks in my room! I would definitely recommend it!

The dresser looks beautiful once assembled. It takes the whole day to assemble, and with my dresser the front frame holes were drilled incorrectly. The drawer slides also were problematic, so I had to improvise. For the price you can't beat it. I hope that in the future they get the specs right.
