I purchased 2 dressers and they are both falling apart! The drawers don't stay on the track and fall onto the drawer below. I wish I could get my money back. This is cheap furniture that won't last 6 months. I can't believe Overstock actually sells this low quality product!
The dresser looks great in the picutre, but when you put it together it is a different story. The quality is poor to say the least. There are screws visible on each side of the dresser and the drawers are made for wood that is paper thin. Like is said you get what you pay for.
I didn't realize that I had to put this totally together. It was from "scratch" and not very easy. The dresser wood is not very heavy and I find the dresser to be smaller than expected. Some of the woods were scratched and after opening the product I had no choice but to keep it, because of so many pieces it wouldn't be worth trying to send it all back for an exchange or refund. I was very disappointed and will not order anything like this again.
I bought 2 of these, one for my husband and one for me. They were very easy to assemble and they have an excellent clean modern look to them. The drawers slide easily and our only complaint is that we wish the drawers were just a little deeper. These were an excellent choice for us!
This dresser could have been saved with a few more dollars or probably cents put into the durability of the drawer bottoms. Everything else would have gotten a moderately good quality if it hadn't been for the drawers. No overstuffed drawers here but T-shirts can weigh a lot when there are a drawer full of them, like any clothes.Yet they were very far from overstuffed. The bottom of the drawer fell apart days after I started using the drawer. When I pulled out the drawer to look at it I could tell why the drawer had given way, it had not drawer bottom support to speak of. Rather than go thru the hassle of taking it apart and sending it back I did something I still regret, I kept the dresser. Although it still stays together, with my additional support built in, I often see solid wood units for this price at Ikea and other places and I cringe. Oh that reminds me, the finish on the top was so poor I felt obligated to go buy a 1/4 " glass topper to make sure they dresser didn't start looking as cheap as it was by being scratched and nicked.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Fine
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor quality
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Fair
This piece is flimsy and a part was missing, so we had to hassle with making a request for the part and wait for it to arrive. This was frustrating. It will work for the temporary situation we needed it for, but I won't be adding to this collection.
This smallish but lovely-looking chest spent only about four days between payment and doorstep, it took my lazy husband just two hours and one power tool to assemble, and it cost about half as much as the same piece at one of the big retail vendors. These facts, I believe, justify the slight shakiness and somewhat dodgy paint job we noticed upon first use. (We set a small television set on top of it and the paint scraped off like nail polish!) You get what you pay for, and I'm generally content with the piece and the price.
We just moved in to our new apartment and needed dressers without spending a lot. When you take it out of the box it looks complicated. It took my boyfriend 2 days to get each done. After 4 hours on the first one he didnt want to get into the second one. I like the dressers a lot but when we put all the drawers in they didnt line up right. We were not about to take them apart and start over.
It's not rocket science that this isn't a high end piece of furniture - you won't get that for this price. But considering it is cheaper than pieces that I bought at Target which fell apart in between getting it put together and moving it to its location, this is perfect for my needs. It does take time to assemble, but anyone who can read directions should be able to do it without problems. I put together 2 nightstands, a headboard and this chest in about 8 hours total (and I'm a girl - haha). I hang up most of my clothes that are heavy (i.e. jeans) so the drawers work for what I have. The only thing I added during assembly was glue to the screw covers so they wouldn't fall off and furniture sliders that I tacked on underneath (the headboard was the only piece that had these). Haven't had paint issues, but black is basic enough to cover if I do. The backers were a heck of a lot more durable than the paper thin ones you often get with prepac furniture and if you tack them on properly it helps stabilize the furniture. Overall, I think it was a good value.
