I advocate not purchasing this drawer chest. It's cheaply made and came with several knicks and scratches on it. Some of the parts on the front frame did not fit together and when I applied a slight amount of pressure, the wood snapped. When turning the drawers upright, one of the corners chipped without any contact from me. The plastic parts used to hold the interior shelves in place cracked if you tightened them too much. Finally, some of the drawer pulls were stripped and I couldn't tighten them completely. This is one of the worst purchases I've made from Overstock.
MY FIRST PURCHASE FROM OVERSTOCK HAS NOT GONE WELL. I was very disappointed when I opened my new dresser and found a part to be broken. The manufacturer claims to have a replacement part policy. I completed the form online and haven't heard anything back from them yet. It has now been 2 weeks since I completed the form. The dresser is still not assembled, still in the box and sitting in my bedroom floor. I am beginning to feel as though I should just return the product back to overstock and get my money back.
This item lookes great once it is all set up, but arrived damaged. Even with several broken parts I decided to assemble and move forward because it looked so great in the box. The quality of this product is awful and the drawers are small. If I could do it all over I'd take an Ikea dresser over this heap anytime. Don't waste your money.
I recently pursched this dresser and overall I am pleased. I really enjoy the dark chocolate color. I was a little upset that there wasn't more solid wood in it however the venirs look appealing and the desgn is sturdy for the most part. There are a couple things that I didn't like in terms of the quality of the product (actually three). The first is that the moldings are held on by these little plastic pegs that you have to inset in the molding and then press into the dresser. These are incredibly cheaply made and a couple of them broke off in the wood which was disappointing since I then couldn't get them out without a drill (good thing for crazy glue). The second is that some of the drawer knobs didnt fit tight against the drawer and instead would spin. The third and most important, especially of you plan on having this on a wood floor, is that there are three large vertical pieces in the dresser, the two sides and a center piece. This wouldn't be a problem if the center piece was a tiny bit longer than the sides causing it to rock ever so slightly. This isn't bad if you pan on having it on carpet but if its going on wood I'd recommend taking the center piece down about 1/8 of an inch on the bottom prior to construction. But other than those few minor flaws I'd say it was well worth what I payed for it.
I almost cried when I opened box 1 of 2 and saw that I needed a few tools (two screwdrivers, hammer, and power drill) to put together a plethora of parts in order to assemble this dresser. Fortunately for me, two friends came over and assembled the dresser which took over three hours to do -- even with power drill. At one point, we had to shave down one of the wood pieces in order to fit -- not something we anticipated having to do in order to complete the construction of the dresser. I didn't realize how short the depth of the drawer is, but that is my fault for not thinking it through or have something to compare it to. I purchased this piece in a pinch and definitely plan on replacing it with something I really want in the near future.

Very cheaply made, you get what you pay for. Made for an older kid/young adult, adult who know better than to slam the drawers, you will be fine. The drawers are very cheaply made. It is nice looking.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very flimsy....no doubt in my mind I will be replacing this within a year.

I ordered this product in October for my bedroom. I was very excited when it arrived. It took me around 3 hours to get it together. Overall I am pretty satisfied with it. The Espresso finishing looks very elegant and matches with my vanity. Pros: good price, classic looking, stable overall Cons: a few scraches during shipping. the instruction is not very user friendly. the bottom of the drawer is just a piece of thin wood, i don't think it can hold heavy staff. but it's not a concern for me since i only use it for light clothes.
I bought the nightstands and dressers for our vacation home and the fit beautifully in the space. They look elegant even though they are not real rugged. They work for those jut staying temporarily and so far I haven't had any issues. These are smal and are not meant for a clothes horse.
