and sometimes a little less. This is a nice looking bedroom set from a few feet away, and for the price you do get a lot of storage and a bed that's pretty sturdy. BUT, some of the little things and the yet-to-be-determined long term durability questions kind of drive me nuts with this set. 1) the wood for the dressers and night stand is not very solid/sturdy. There are splits at the base of our mirror forming already, and the headboard is noticeably thin / slightly more flexible than you'd expect. 2) there's basically no finish or protection against scratching whatsoever on this furniture. It's stained very nicely, but I can make a scratch in it without much effort using my fingernail. Keep this in mind if you have pets. 3) the mirror was slightly warped from day 1. Somewhat fun-house like, but not so bad that it isn't usable. So why would I have accepted this furniture when it arrived? It does look nice from a distance, it's a vast improvement over the nothing that we used to have, and have you looked at the prices of brand name stores?! One other thing - while the people who work at Overstock in the Oversized item delivery department are very helpful and nice, overall the delivery process was terrible. It took weeks past the expected delivery date and there was a problem getting clear communication on all ends.

This is a lot of pieces for the money and I like the style of it. I would say it is better quality than the cheap stuff at the stores, but not as good as if we would have paid like $2000 at a department store. There was really very little assembly required ... I was pleasantly surprised. My only complaint is that the chest of drawers arrived without any drawer pulls, so I had to invest another $30 to buy those from a hardware store.
