I love the look of this chest. I have the nightstands that go with it and I didn't have a problem this them at all. As with the nightstands, I was impressed about the packaging job. Everything is labeled so assembly was easy but a little time consuming. However, unlike the nightstands, this chest weight a lot and it was damaged during shipping. Like I sad, it was packed perfectly, but because of the size, it is harder for the regular delivery person to lift it on and off the truck. We contacted customer service and requested a replacement, but the replacement also arrived damaged. This is a great product, the wood is ok quality for the price, but the shipping method just doesn't work.
Purchased this after considerable amount of poking around on the internet. It's a very good quality piece, all wood, very sturdy, wasn't damaged when it arrived and all the parts were in the box. The instructions are easy to follow however this takes quite a while to put together and a bit of elbow grease - took me about 2.5 hours. I had no problem with the drawers lining up and it looks great in my bedroom. If you haven't put furniture together before, you will be able to do it, but it will take you longer as some of the parts are tricky. Once it's together I think you'll love it.
I am a bit disappointed of the quality of the craftsmanship of this product. It was a bit challenging to put together, because some of the holes that were supposed to be previously drilled were missing, some of the drawers and dresser pieces do not easily fit together. 2 out of 4 drawers do not fully close.

It is nice for I could not find this size at furniture stores. The problem is putting it together; it took me at least 4 hours. I decided to go buy a power screw driver to save my hands from plastering. If you are planning to buy this: be ready with power screw driver, investing the time, adjusting the drawers is a pain. I broke the screw that is used for the alignment while trying to align the drawers as per instructions:(
Sunday two of our sons houses flooded in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and they and their families moved in with us. We needed places to put clothes for the next several weeks. I ordered both Bedford Chests on Sunday and Tuesday one was delivered, only one road open to our house, and Wednesday the second one was delivered. They were easy to put together and do not take up a lot of space. This is good because we are having to put them in hallways. I cannot express how thankful we are to Overstock for the fast delivery.
The quality is what you'd expect from a $* dresser, however it's not even worth the fight to get the drawers to not only close fully....but be somewhat straight. I have 3 hours invested right now and only one drawer is fitting in the hole, and it's not even straight. The pieces of "wood" which separate the drawer fronts are warped which makes it even more difficult. Not worth the aggravation and how would I even return it at this point!
Was very disappointed in the, condition when it arrived. There was a big nick out of the front on the top in the center. The last piece you put together. Took my son about 6 hours today put together because of the instructions never said when told put the side panels on.
