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
I bought this chest and two other side cabinets in this line and they are all beautiful. You have to be willing to spend some time putting them together though. I am a female and it took me a couple hours to put this chest together. Just organize all your pieces before you start and the instructions are clear. I will give a couple pointers though on building the chest. First you can use an electric screw driver but be careful because you can easily twist the heads off the screws, even the cam lock screws, so go slow and twist the last couple turns by hand. The other tip is on the cam lock system, the directions say to use a 4mm hex wrench (I think that is what they call it)....well that doesn't work very well, use a flat head screw driver instead - much easier and you will get them tightly closed with that. If you want a high end look without the high end price, this is a great dresser!
After 6 months of use, the screw heads used with the drawer rails have been popping off making it so the drawers won't close. With the rest of the screws still in the wood, how do you get them out? You can't. The top looks as though it is pulling away from the dresser. If you buy this, I HIGHLY recommend you go to the store and buy your own screws and not use the cheap pieces of crap that come with the dresser.
This is a nice looking dresser, but it is basically sub-IKEA quality for 3x the cost. Very very cheap construction. The heavy top piece on mine gradually has becoming more and more bowed which is pulling it off the frame. It looks very stupid and there is no solution as it is not a single slab of wood, it's basically plywood .. and it's coming apart. Since this happened over a few months, I cannot return it .. so I'm stuck with a $XXX crappy dresser. My only option would be to try and screw it down to the frame myself, but since the wood is such poor quality this could potentially make the whole dresser unusable.
Stay away from this product. You'll really regret it in a few months.
Wonderful, stylish, sturdy dresser in a great espresso tone. Great deal for the price! It takes awhile to assemble, so give yourself time. Wood tends to splinter, when installing drawer tracks, so be cautious. Nice that extra parts are included. Careful with cam locks, not as strong as most, damaged one over tightening by hand, and as a result would be very cautious with power tools! Overall great buy!
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
