My husband wasn't in the mood to put this together so I thought I'd give it a shot to get it started. The instructions started going okay but then things became unclear. The doors didn't line up easily again due to vague instructions. The drawers gave us a bit of a hard time too. Noticed that the black finished scratches easily. But for the price, once we figured everything out, the armoire looks nice. We bought it for our daugher's room and what matters is.......she really likes it! It has much more room than her little girl dresser and she think she's cool having a dresser like Mom's.
The armoire was made of poor quality materials. My 18 year old nephew assembled it for almost a day. Despite his best efforts, the drawers at the bottom would not close properly. I had to buy sandpaper so that he could shave off the drawer's sides to make it close. In addition, the door knobs of the drawers would fall out most of the time when you pull the drawer. It was over-all a very bad buy!!!!
I purchased this Armoire after looking for months. The price was great. It was not hard to put together. Yiy can do most it of it alone. Installing the doors was the hardest part and that is when you will need another pair of hands. It is sturdy and roomy. I only wish the draws were a bit deeper.
Once you get the hang of assembling furniture, this is a breeze. The instructions are straightforward and all the pieces in the Broadway collection follow the same format. This was the best deal I could find where I could have an all-matching bedroom set and so far I love all the pieces.While some of the parts did come with minor scratches (I suppose that's normal wear-and-tear in the delivery process), there was a substantial indent in the top of the armoire that I received. I used a hammer to bang it somewhat back into shape and the included marker to fix the color, but it was pretty disappointing to receive it this way since otherwise the piece would look so beautiful.
No issues, except I put the fixed shelf in backwards (the directions are a little vague). Correctable, though. It looks great & only took a few hours to put together. I am happy with the outcome. It looks great in my massage office & holds everything neatly inside, which gives my room a very modern, feng sui look. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
We got this for the guest bedroom and to put a 20 inch TV in it. Over the last year the drawers have become inoperable and the shelve the TV sits on has collapsed a bit because the cheap particle board this is made out of has deteriorated. Trust me on this one, go with solid hardwood for something like this
The product was very well made with strong materials. The drawers were a bit complicated putting together but if you have ever seen a roll out drawer b4 you will be able to figure it out. The only problem with the product was that b4 assembly even started there were alot of scratches and marks on the outside of the closet portion. the company provides a touch up pen for u to fix these issues but it doesnt do the job perfectly. i love the armoire and it matches perfectly with my room and i would definately recommend the product and the accompanying products to anyone lookign for a modern but classy piece of furniture.
This item came to me scratched and chipped. The screws strip very easily and there are no extras. In addition, no pieces are labeled, which makes the instructions very hard to follow. All in all, it took 2 guys (engineers) about 5 hours to assemble total. I would not recommend this product.
I love this armoire - it was exactly what I needed to become organized! It was missing the drawer rails, but the manufacturer shipped them out to me quickly. It took me less than 2 hours to put together alone. It is heavy once assembled (which my husband wasn't happy about since he had to carry it upstairs) so I recommend you assemble it in its final destination. Great value!
This Contemporary Armoire is perfect for my bedroom! It hides the television and DVD player from site, and looks great. It's a great piece for the money, with similar items retailing for double elsewhere. I did my research, and for the value and look of this piece, you can't go wrong.
The armoire was a little bit of a disappointment when I finally completed it. The size is a lot smaller than it appears to be in the photo. The directions were few and it was a lot of trial and error to get the piece complete. The wood is of high quality and looks expensive. It is a great addition to a small bedroom.
Not the best product in the world, but what are you expecting for paying less than $300? We bought this knowing that it wouldn't be the best quality, but for the price, we are very happy with it. Pretty easy to assemble. It took a few modifications in the directions, but all in all it went together pretty smoothly. Looks nice and gets my husband's clothes out of the closet in the other room.
This Armoire was priced okay, but the difficulty came in assembly. First off, there were multiple parts missing. Secondly, while the Overstock.Com team took care of getting the missing parts to me, which I greatly appreciate, there was still an item for a drawer that was wrong. I ended up having to drill and cut this item to make the drawer work. The Armoire was sent with three of one side of the two drawers and one of the other side. I ended up with the wrong one again. With all that said...I have enjoyed shopping with Overstock.Com, I will continue to do so, as they provide a great value and ease of purchase with a huge variety of items from which to choose. Thank you, Kevin
My roommate and I just put together this armoire and it looks great. Definitely a quality piece of furniture even though it did take awhile to put it together. But it seems sturdy (my TV and DVD player are in the main section) and looks great in my room. After looking at so many other places, I definitely think it is a great piece for the price.
My 13 yr old son and I had a good time putting this together and it looks so nice. It was better than the picture online. We are using it in his room as a tv cabinet and to hold all his game consoles and games. It's a very modern, asian style armoire.
As other reviewers stated, we found it very difficult to assemble and wound up not using the directions. There were a couple scratches on the doors, but a repair pen included covered them pretty well. Once it was together we were very pleased-it looks nice, and not cheap and the hardware is a good quality too. Would definitely recommend as long as you have patience to put it together!
