I bought this dresser for my 13 year old son. The set up took about 2 hours with his help. The directions were easy to follow. If you do purchase, make sure that you save at least 24 nails to hammer into the drawers, which the directions did not tell you to do, so we actually used all on the back of the dresser and ended up having to purchase nails for the drawers. I digress, the actual dresser is sturdy, but the drawers are flimsy, you can't really open and close the drawers without thinking that it will fall apart. If I had not already set this up I would have returned it. I guess you can say you get what you pay for.

Dresser came in 2 boxes which was nice to help cut down on the weight if bringing upstairs. Materials were well packaged using shaped foam to protect wood corners from damage. Assembly wasn't too hard, but be warned they didin't provide ANY extra pieces (wood dowels, screws, lock screws, etc.). other than the required minimum. The wood particle board is the usual flaky stuff that could easily be snapped in half if you were to drop it. The drawers are EXTRA flimsy and most cracked a little at the lock screw hole when trying to secure the wood sides to the front facing piece. Only good thing is that the dresser looks decent from the outside once it's all assembled. Drawers slide in and out nicely, but again you can really feel the cheapness from the drawers. In my opinion, this item wouldn't survive a move.
It looks nice .The drawers are very flimsy , you can't add a lot of stuff in.I bought it for my son 's room. For socks and underwear the drawers are ok , but for sweaters , pants , ( for a 3 year old ) the lower part of the drawer comes loose . I got some nails and nailed all around lower part of the drawers ,so they would be a little more stable. I would also say that the dresser is too narrow. If for decor it looks very nice , but not too much use of it. I bought this dresser in 2012 and so far it holds ok .
This is not a top of the line piece of furniture. With that said, it is sturdy and has exceeded my expectations. My only gripe is that the drawers feel light and the rolling mechanism is loose but they do not feel as though they would break from normal use. I've had this and the matching nightstand for about 6 months without an issue.
