Beautiful piece of furniture, but at what price! Not a handyman, so this took my daughter and me several hours to put together. For novices, we needed more specific directions. For example, after attaching a drawer rail, had to re-do because I'd placed it backwards. Sounds silly, doesn't it? But for one with little experience putting furniture together, this was an easy error. We had all the required tools, but I was a little wary about attaching the drawer side to the base since there were no pre-drilled holes and improper installation might split the narrow wood sides. I would recommend this to those who are 1) good with their hands/handyman; 2) want an adventure; 3) don't mind putting in a few hours' work for a good piece of furniture. For me, I've learned more about myself in working on this project: purchase furniture that's all ready put together.
I would bet, although I did not actually count, there are over 100 parts to put together. It took 4 HOURS of non-stop work to put this together. Add in a flimsy cardboard type backing and handles that make it just about impossible to open and I would not recommend this to anyone, aside from a person that wants to spend hours and hours and hours of time to make it work. This makes an XXXX product seem like a childs game
I was very impressed with the quality of the item, including the way it was packed for shipping. No damage was incurred in shipping, even though the boxes had the normal dents and dings that come with something of this size and UPS.
Good solid hard wood, at a good price. The sides of the drawers are MDF instead of regular wood, but they are study. The drawer bottoms and chest backing are lightweight (real!) wood. I put together 3 of these things and 2 side tables... even with practice you can expect to spend 2.5-3 hours per dresser if you do it by yourself with a cordless screw driver. (You might never finish if you do it with a manual screwdriver as the screws fit tightly!) Instructions were clear, parts were all there (including a few extra in case you strip a head or bend a cam).

Have had two of these for a while now. Easy to put together. Look good - like a much more expensive piece than what they cost. Drawers slide smoothly. This piece of furniture seems to be one that I will have around for years.

Save your money. The drawer guides are of poor quality and are very hard to line up. Drawers drop down and do not look centered in the dresser. It took me over 3 hour to assemble with good hand tools, do not use power tools because of the potential to damage the wood. Assembly instructions are terrible. I have put several pieces of furniture together in the past, this one took entirely too much time.
Overstock is refunding my purchase price and paying for return shipping. However it is costing me ** for ** pickup service (it is a large package weighing over 130 lbs.). It has also cost me over ** in packaging materials required to return it to Overstock.com. Bottom line, I am out ** and 5 to 6 hours of time I will never get back! Do yourself a favor, AVOID THIS ITEM!
although we have only had it for a couple of days, we are impressed with this dresser. it has a nice modern look to it, the drawers glide smoothly on their tracks, it has lots of room for clothes, and feels pretty solid for the inexpensive price. We initially purchased a smaller 5 drawer dresser that cost less than half as much, and not only did it arrive cracked, it was poorly constructed, flimsy, and pretty much garbage. I would recommend spending the extra **** to get a higher quality piece of furniture, which the Catalina is.
We bought the dresser, night stand and 5 drawer chest for out teenage son. Great quality, easy to put together although a little time consuming. This furniture is of great quality and looks perfect in his room.

This is a nice, well-built piece of furniture. It took a few hours, but if you have ever assembled anything like this (from IKEA, for ex) you'll be fine. The only issue I have is that when you are screwing in the rails into the main body, you have to make sure the screws are completely flat and flush with the surface. If it sticks out a little, it'll catch the little wheel from the drawer (Assembly Step #2).
It looks great and I'm glad I bought it.

Love this piece of furniture. I also have the matching dresser. The color is black and it's very modern and simple but you can do a lot with it. It took a couple hours to put it together but I have no regrets!

For the internal drawer panels, which are made of medium-density fiberboard...which panels are you talking about? The bottom of the drawer? Or the sides? I am not sure what medium-density fiberboard is or how strong it is.aliciagonzalez1606 on Oct 7, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

It is real wood. It is a hardwood from a Para Tree. This tree makes something that is used for making latex and thats why it is named rubberwood.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 29, 2012
