Very sturdy, good-looking furniture. Definitely a good value dresser that presents a lot of room for clothing, large blankets/quilts, and photo frames on top. However, it was difficult to build (and I have a great deal of experience building this type of furniture and following close attention to instructions). I question the NY reviewer who stated that it took her husband two hours to complete this build. First, this furniture assembly requires two people -- there is no way that one person can properly assemble this. You need an extra set of hands for certain parts of the build (e.g., flipping the furniture from its side after attaching the inner framework together). Second, there is no way this can be properly built in two hours. It took me a minimum of 20 minutes per drawer (assembling the drawers, rails, handle, etc.). Therefore, putting the drawers together (seven in all) took over two hours. Finally, take note of the following assembly tips -- do NOT mix up screws labelled 2 and 3 (they appear similar but are of different lengths). The shorter screws labelled '2' are for the interior rails. Second, be careful assembling the outer rails on sides B and C. The illustration on the instructions are not very clear, and it is easy to screw the outer rails in the wrong direction. Just remember that the front of side C is on the right and side B on the left. All in all, this furniture is a great deal, but do not buy this if you do not have the patience or room to put together a hefty piece of furniture (weighs approx. 150+lbs) that will take 3 to 6 hours to build.
I would not have purchased this without all the other reviews, so here's my two cents...
This is a somewhat heavy piece of furniture that is good looking once assembled. The color is a deep, rich brown like a dark walnut. It blends beautifully with some darker chocolate colored furniture I have.
The dresser was shipped via UPS ground in 3 boxes which were packed well- no dings at all. There are many pieces (mostly drawer parts) and it IS time consuming to put together. The instructions are well written and all parts are labeled. If you take your time and approach it in an organized manner it should not be a problem.
The only tools I used were a heavy-duty cordless screwdriver, a large flathead screwdriver (to tighten the camlocks), and a hammer (softened with a baseball as I didn't have a rubber mallet).
As another reviewer pointed out, the inside of the drawers are particle board or something similar, as well as the back. Even so, I think this piece is well worth the price even considering the assembly time. I usually use fabric drawer liners anyway for sweaters and socks, so no big deal to me.
This dresser is taller than any other I've had in the past, but that works in my favor.
I like this piece so much that I plan to order another soon... it does not look like the typical do-it-yourself furniture.
We ordered two of these dressers and 2 nightstands about 3 months ago and still haven't put the last piece together yet. The first 3 took over 6 days to find the time to build. 3 hours here, 4 hours there, all day one Saturday. There are hundreds and hundreds of pieces. I don't know when we will find the time to finish the second dresser! It looks very nice. We used the wrong screws in some places and the drawers get stuck. It's our fault but it's VERY confusing. Especially the diagrams on which way the drawer sliders attach. Good luck!
The difficulty in assembling this chest of drawers was that some of the pieces were warped, some of the dowel posts were too big or too long for the pre-drilled holes, some of the pieces of wood actually had cracks in them. I really struggled to assemble them -- I bought two to put side by side -- and unfortunately there was no way I could make the pieces fit snuggly together, no matter how hard I pounded with a rubber mallet. As a result the top of the chest does not rest flat on on the rest of the chest. Fortunately the drawers still slide in. I was too exhausted to take it apart and send it back for a refund. It was a great looking chest in the picture, perfect size, but in reality a big disappointment.
Yes, I must admit, while standing at a distance this Bella chest/dresser is a Beauty. Solid wood construction, predrilled holes (which one may have to reconsider... was an 1/8 " off on one drawer), precision assembling... if you read and follow directions step by step it may take up to 4 hours of your time. Take a break in between, have a cup of coffee, a cig, or a snack. Try bringing a friend over to help out. The sucker is heavy duty, but slides easily on hard wood floors.
Deep drawers x4 and nice size smaller drawers x3 for linens, T's, etc. I am a plus size gal... so my plus size sweaters fit wonderfully in this generous sized chest of drawers. The width is a perfect fit in the sitting/dressing room. Yeppers, the guy who said it would work in a dinning room was right. It would look perfect in a dinning room. The style is just a conservative, traditional, basic style, which goes with a number of furnishings. I paid a friend of mine to put this together for me. He understood how to get the 1/8 off centered drawer to work. Now it slides wonderfully. I fold clothes in a militant fashion... very organized... and I was able to get 15 tanks, and 10 camisoles in one small drawer, then I was able to fold 7 plus size hooded acrylic sweaters in a larger drawer.
The only reason I give this a 4 overall rating was because buying from overstock I find there products are flawed in almost everything I purchase. I expect it actually. This is the reason for discontinued items and mark downs. I have enjoyed my purchases tho. I like to save money and instead of buying a similiar product (chest) for almost 2000 dollars I opted for this one. GLAD I DID!!
The same was when I purchased a bed and mattress set. A little flaw, no problem to solve. I love those pieces too. The camera tho... no flaw at all.
If you love beauty with a small price tag, and have patience... GO FOR IT!
While the outside material/wood it's of very good quality and very nice finish , the material for the drawers it's of a poor qulity (pressed wood or paper ) that splits easy when you install the screws for the side slides . Getting the dresser together takes time and it is very heavy when it's assembled .
Note to the assembles : when install the slides , pay attention WHERE the FRONT of the unit is ( or will be-where the corect "finish" of the wood ) !!
If you plan to buy the night-table ...warning ..it's BIG !
The price is affordable, but be prepared to have your electric screwdriver. The product comes in three boxes and it will take several hours to assemble. The wood is soft, so you should not stack the drawers. I ended up scratching two drawers, which looked fine with touch up. One item that concerned me was when you put the drawer rollers on you are screwing into manufactured wood and I saw several splits below the rollers. I ended up not screwing as tight to avoid.
When finished, it is a beautiful dresser and I am very happy with how it looks in my bedroom.
I would recommend yes, but with reservations. This is my third purchase in the collection, having previously bought the queen size bed and end table. The quality of this product seemed down compared to the previous products. Several screws and in particular the larger metal anchors used to secure the sides and shelves twisted apart during construction, as though they are using an inferior, softer metal than before. The final product is ok. But when installing the drawer brackets several of the screws barely took hold, rather kept slipping when screwed in. I actually went to the local hardware store and bought some just slightly larger wood screws that seem to hold much better. As with other products in this style, construction is long, they recommend, as do I, having 2 people rather than 1 person when building it. And be prepared for it to be somewhat confusing and taking perhaps twice as long as you think it might to complete. I rated previous products in this style as Excellent. This one, however, I rate as Average.

Hello, ntip1954. Hope your day is going well. Yes. A 75 pound T.V. set would be balanced on this item and rubberwood is very sturdy.
