This rich chestnut 6-drawer chest is great for both the home and office with its sense of elegance and functionality. Made of solid wood, the chest stands 36.61' high x 19.88' deep x 37.80' wide. The six drawers also feature metal pulls....more
This dresser is beautiful and is made of solid wood, not the cheap particle board stuff. When it's put together, it's a really nice piece. It's perfect for a nursery (or child's room) and can be used as a changing table. The drawers are rather shallow, hence not ideal for an adult who plans to store bulky sweaters or denim jeans.
The major DETRACTOR is the set-up time. Absolutely NOTHING is set up for you --every single piece of wood needs to be put together and there are many many pieces (it comes shippped in 2 giant boxes). It took my husband OVER 5 HOURS to put this dresser together, and he is very handy and had time-saving tools like an electric drill for all those million screws.
In the end, if you love the dresser, be prepared to spend an entire afternoon putting it together. And then enjoy!
This is beautiful as is the matching bed. My taste runs to modern eclectic and it suits me perfectly--it looks half-modern/half antique with a little Zen thrown in for good measure. Just gorgeous.Smallish, yes, as other reviewers have mentioned but it suits my needs perfectly. I put my lingerie and more frequently used accessories in it, the rest goes in the closet.The color is a medium-deep with a FAINT red tone. I was worried about the color but was very pleased when it arrived. The assembly was easy for an experienced RTA person like me. This is just gorgeous and I'm considering even getting another before they run out.I have the matching bed (no longer available, I'm afraid) and they look superb. This is one Overstock item I'm glad I didn't deliberate about (I've lost my chance many times). Get it while you can--and let me just mention, Overstock's service is top-notch (but you probabl,y knew that already).
A great finishing touch to the matching bed and nightstands. It is on the smaller side, but the perfect size for my room. Great for lingerie, t-shirts, non-bulky items. Definitely meant to be....I purchased the last one in stock when I placed my order. Thanks for another great product - arrived in perfect condition and in just a few days.
My husband and I bought the Milton bedroom set! The dresser is very nice the only thing is the drawers are not very deep. Assembly was easy it only took use about a 1 1/2. I put all the drawers together and my husband worked on the shell. We also got the matching night stand and assembled it the same way that only took us about a hour to do.
Even after assembling the nightstand this piece was very difficult to assemble. The drawer glides don't work well. The piece looks beautiful. I love the color and shape of the piece. Don't recommend that you try to assemble it without a partner to help.
First, I don't really mind that the entire piece is not solid wood--it's cheap and I kind of expected that. But, what I find disappointing is that Overstock actually knows that this piece is not solid wood, yet they still describe it as such in the item description. I looked at the Q and A about the product as I was assembling it to find that only the top, sides and drawer fronts are solid wood. The rest is MDF.
Next, the instructions are hard to decipher: not because they don't make sense, but because the pictures are kind of small, making some of the more "sensitive" construction decisions hard to interpret (for example, when installing the drawer glides on the cabinet, you need a magnifying glass to see which direction is "up").
All in all, it appears to have come together nicely. However, some of the smaller screws (#3) snapped off at the head when installing the drawer glides. I had some other screws so it wasn't a problem.
I also have to say: in the initial days of Overstock, one would get items that were truly "overstock." They were brand names and where probably sold in other outlets or stores prior to arriving at Overstock.com. Now, the boxes indicate that Overstock was the intended customer--probably made to their specifications, at a controlled price point. So, even the word "overstock" is a misnomer. Like the "outlet stores" in the mall, these products were never intended to be sold in the traditional retail environment. This bothers me a little, as the products can be cheaper in construction or finish when compared to what you would expect in the normal retail market. I keep that in mind when shopping now...and that is sad...
I'm very happy with my purchase. I ordered two even though I was concern about the time it would take me to assemble this chest. The first chest took me around eight hours. But I took my time. I opened the two boxes, checked and laid the the parts in alphabetical sequence, and read the instruction. I don't have special tools like electric philips and screw driver. I just use regular Philips and flat head screwdrivers. I was able to assemble this chest together without any problems except for the second chest. Parts 8 and 9 were missing. Contacted Overstock and Customer Care rep was very helpful and parts are on the way. Great looking chest. I will order the matching nightstand (4) and bed (2). Great job Overstock!!! I'm a very happy customer.
I love this Milton 6-Drawer Dresser. The size and color works well with the Tribecca Iron Sleigh Bed I ordered for the guest room. I also ordered the matching nightstands. The drawers aren't as deep as my bedroom suite, but will work great for guests. Excellent choice!
I would give this an excellent if I were to base my review only on the looks of it. The shallowness of the drawers is a drawback. I'm used to deeper drawers. Otherwise it's beautiful and feels like a good quality furniture. Depends on your use, consider carefully if shallow drawers will serve your purpose.
This chest is just as nice as the pictures. It definitely took a while to put it together but well worth it for the value. You need to be patient and have the right tools. Most of it is hardwood, would have liked it all to be but for the price it is great. Wood is beautiful and we are picky.
Yes elessar599, these drawer glides have wheels. I hope this helps, thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 28, 2014

I found the instructions that came with the dresser really easy to follow and all pieces are well marked. Go through the steps and look at all of the parts before you begin. Only hard part is making sure you put the screws in straight. If you use a power screw driver, be careful not to over tighten the screws.louise4321 on Nov 14, 2013
The instructions are very easy to follow. Everything is clearly marked. All you really need is a screwdriver.joe43 on Jan 21, 2014

The ships in two boxes and the drawers are in pieces, it would not be dovetail.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 26, 2012

how deep are the drawers? Do they go all they way to the back of the dresser? I read reviews they are shallow.rckeith on Sep 12, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Each drawer measures 3.5 inches high and 15 inches deep. The chest measures 19.88 inches deep, so the drawers are slightly less deep than the dresser itself.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 13, 2012
Solid cherry wood is used for the top, sides, drawer fronts and bracing pieces.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 11, 2012
