Perfect! I will say, however, that watching my wife put the chest, (and matching 1-drawer nightstand),
together near wore me out, (but not her...as she's the 'mechanic' in our house). The 5-drawer chest
took 90-minutes to put together, (with an electric screw-driver); the nightstand took an hour. We gave
these two COVENTRY brand items a 5-star 'thumbs up', because of the overall inherent quality. No
'fiber-board', here...these units are constructed of solid rubber wood and the goods shipped to us by
Overstock.Com...as is usally the case... were far better than advertised; beautiful fit & finish & attention
to detail, (drawer dimensional stability, heavy duty rollers and coordinating hard-ware, etc., etc.), just
an outstanding overall value, (at roughly half the price posted in Nashville, TN, area furniture stores for
comparable goods). The only real problem we ever experience with Overstock.Com is that we spend
entirely too much money with them! Their quick-response delivery and legendary service ought to
be properly considered 'the benchmark' of all on-line consumer direct business entities.
I just finished assembling this piece and it looks just finished assembling this piece and it looks exactly like the picture online. This is comparable to much more expensive pieces I considered purchasing from a retail furniture store just a week ago. Fortunately, I decided to do some comparison shopping online before dropping thousands of dollars more to buy from a showroom.
I purchased this 5-drawer chest along with the matching 6-drawer chest and 2 nightstands. The total for all 4 pieces, including shipping, was less than a single dresser at the showroom. The quality has more than exceeded my expectations. Each piece is constructed of thick, solid wood. Even the drawer bottoms are sturdy, ¼ inch thick material (possibly particle board) and fit into deep channels in the drawer for a solid fit.
As far as assembly¿ if you have ever put together any other ¿assemble it yourself¿ piece of furniture, you won't find this assembly challenging at all. All you need is a hammer, Philips and a flat-head screwdriver (though a cordless drill with screwdriver bits will make your job a lot easier). I assembled one nightstand and this 5 drawer chest in just about 3 hours while watching TV. There were plenty of extra pieces of hardware, so even if you lose some, you'll still have enough.
You can¿t go wrong with any of the Coventry pieces listed on Overstock.com.
I purchased this dresser because I like the contempory look and rich color. The drawers are quite deep and the wood is very solid. It does require a decent amount of assembly because there are lots of screws, but one you get the first drawer together, the others are quite easy. I am really happy with the purchase and it is a nice addition to my Master suite.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was a rich, brown which looked luxurious
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good quality. I did notice a few minor scratches on a few areas, but nothing too noticeable.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description is a true representation of the product.
We received this Chest in a little over a week. The product was very well packed and had no shipping damage at all. The parts fit perfectly and the color was exactly what we expected. Most of it is solid wood, except for the drawer sides and back which are some sort of composite. That is the only weakness of this product. When assembling the drawers, drill a tiny pilot hole before screwing in the drawer rails to avoid splitting the composite. Also, use a small amount of wood glue in the dowel holes. It will greatly improve the strength. I would highly recommend this product.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
How is the quality of the product? Excellent
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes
It took my mother (81) and I (somewhat younger than 81) two hours to put this chest together, no power tools involved. It was basically a breeze to assemble, the instructions didn't leave much guess-work, and it currently stands proudly in a guest bedroom. It's a solid piece of furniture and I love it enough to be ordering another for my daughter's new home.
Love this furniture line. Great deal as long as you can put furniture together. We bought the bed tables first and liked them so much we also bought the dresser. Experience helped, after putting the bed tables together, the dresser was even easier. The color is a rich, deep brown. Wood is sturdy. Style is sleek and simple.
Received this immediately and my husband put it together and commented on the quality and beauty of the wood. He reinforced it with wood glue along with the screws. He also said that the instructions were a little difficult buf not too hard to figure out. I love it.
I love this chest so much that this is the second one I have purchased. I got the first one in December 2012. The color is perfect, I love the wood and the style, and the size meets my needs. It does come in many pieces and requires a couple of people a couple of hours to get it ready to use, but it's fun to watch it take shape. I also bought two of the three drawer night stands with my first chest. The quality of this furniture is excellent and the price is more than reasonable, making this an excellent value. I will go back to this furniture to meet my needs as long as it is available.
I really love the look of this dresser, and despite being particle board, it looks like it might actually be real wood. Now that it's assembled, I expect it to last for quite a few years.
But whew, was this difficult to assemble. In all it took nearly four hours to put it together myself. The instructions are hard to follow, even more so than Ikea instructions. The pieces for the dresser drawer don't really fit too well together, so I really had to push down on the pieces in order for them to snap together, and even then they didn't always. When it came to assembling the main body of the dresser, the pieces are only held together by wood dowels, and the top, so the whole thing, especially at the bottom, is a little wobbly.
I think next time I might just spend the extra money to get a pre-assembled dresser.
when you say the drawers are on wheels, what kind of glides are you talking about--and do all the pcs in the collection have the same type of glides?flyybyye on Nov 14, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello flyybyye, thank you for your interest in the 'Coventry 5-drawer Chest' item #80001205. These are metal glides which more than likely is used for the entire collection. Usually parts are interchangeable in a collection of furniture. overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 3, 2013
Thank you for shopping with us bayview. We have no data on this; the first reviewer wrote his wife did it in 90 minutes. It would be based on your experience. I am sorry I can't be more helpful with this answer. Have a good day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 12, 2013
It took me a couple hours by myself. It's a great looking dresser and a very nice quality.jmw72010 on Jul 20, 2013
Took literally all $%^&^% day!! Other reviewers have not had this problem so quality may have gone down as of late. At least that was the case with the one I received.tiredofremodeling1 on Aug 31, 2013
My son put it together...took him 2 hours.understuffed22 on Sep 21, 2013
The furniture in our home has the espresso finish. Does this have more of a brown finish? The first photo looks like espresso and the close up photo looks more brown, which photo is more accurate and true to the actual color?patrickl9 on May 27, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi patrickl9, this finish is not quite as dark as an espresso finish. Thanks for your interest, hope this helps!overstockcustomercare1 on May 28, 2013
It has an expresso finish. It is very nice.suzannah7 on Jun 25, 2013
Yes, which you must mount during assembly.mnaquin on Mar 12, 2013
I don't agree with the answer provided by overstockcustomercase1. The finish of my Coventry 5-drawer Chest is very dark brown, more than enough to qualify as expresso. I have other pieces of furniture with an expresso finish that are noticeably lighter.suzannah7 on Jul 13, 2013
