This chest was everything I wanted and more. Its glossy finish in the photo is more matte and the distressing is VERY suttle so if you are going for the "shabby chic" kindof look then this is not the piece for you. The three drawers are very deep and wide. The price, too, comparable to many other places is at least a third of the cost. See: *********************
I love this chest. It is in my entry along with a mirror that has black veins on the frame - a venetian glass look. The scale of the chest is just right. The drawers are deep and hold all of my runners, accessories & candles that are changed out seasonally. It's perfect for my home and needs!

I ordered two of these and they are way more than I expected. The dresser looks so luxurious and rich, not to mention it is extremely well made and rather heavy. The drawers are deep and slide very smoothly. Both dressers were very well packaged and arrived in perfect shape. I can't believe such great quality can be purchased on Overstock.com!! The lines of this dresser are so classy and well defined. I would recommend it to anyone with a sophisticated taste!
The chest is very elegant, coming across as a period furniture piece from the grand old homes.However, totally disappointed with my experience. Extremely poor build quality. The top drawers (out of total 3) did not work at all, and the bottom one is also very suspect. After taking them out with great difficulty, which also caused a few chips, the non-uniform and severely deformed drawer mechanism was obvious. The MDF/wood (if there is any) is also very inferior.Wrote OS for replacement since I liked the design and appeal very much. They were out of stock, and said the new ones would take over six weeks. Took the half price refund that the OS was giving since there was no guarantee that there would not be similar issues, and I had paid $15 to the courier for unpacking and taking it inside. Was very impractical to pack and take this very heavy piece to the courier.
This came 99% assembled and looks really beautiful. High Quality. It's not as lacquered/glossy looking as in the photo. Flatter black. Had a couple chips. i didn't want to return it so Overstock gave me some money back because of the damage. i think some damage is unavoidable because it ships in one complete piece.
I didn't put the legs on and not sure if they even came with it, but I have it in my bedroom as an extra dresser. It's a nice piece and has held up pretty well. It's not as shiny as in the picture, but a little more muted soft black instead.
We purchased 2 of these as nightstands for a large bedroom. We are pleased with the quality. They are large for nightstands but that's what we wanted. They look great.

I was real excited to receive this chest. 3 weeks after ordering, it was delivered. When my husband opened the box it looked like it was dropped out of a airplane or building. The whole thing was cracked down the edegs and the drawers wouldn't open and the bottom of the chest and the bottom separating the drawers falls out. I was really disappointed. Overstock did credit me for the chest, but I was real disappointed. The chest is beautiful if it's in working order. You take your chances when you order something like this and have it shipped.

Bought this chest over a year ago and it is now falling apart piece by piece. Beware doe not age well. The wood has split and most of the pulls have come off. This chest is not worth the money period.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? not as shiny

This chest is sturdy and 99% assembled (as shipped). Only the feet must be screwed onto the base of the piece. The black is rich and has a nice shine (but not at all cheap-o looking). The picture is quite accuarate as to scale, shine and color. The drawers are deep and move smoothly. The rubbed edges give the piece a classy, antique finish. I have nothing bad to say - besides, the price is excellent for this real wood item. Thanks O!
The dresser is very pretty and looks as it does in the photo, except the paint is a little less glossy. It had a dings in the paint by the drawers, but otherwise was in great condition when it arrived. It was easy to assemble the legs as well. My only complaint is that the dresser has a very strong odor (like an attic)....I have kept baking soda in the drawers for weeks to try to get rid of the smell.
