I've bought several pieces of furniture that I needed to assemble, so this isn't my first. I was really happy with the ease of assembly and the finished product. This is a really solid piece of furniture and extremely well made. The drawers fit perfectly into the chest, no gaps to be found at all. And each drawer slides easily on its runner. Despite what the previous reviewer said, I have not had any problems with items spilling over. The drawers are very wide and deep and contain all of my items nicely. Also, the inside of each drawer is sanded to a very smooth finish, so there is no need to worry about snags on delicate clothing. I would not only recommend purchasing this piece, I would be happy to give it as a gift to someone, it's that nice! And the price is so low, it's totally worth it.
this was the biggest waste of money! the drawers do not fit in the slots properly and were constantly coming off the track and falling out... DO NOT BUY THIS DRESSER! it also comes in about 800 pieces, it took two adults almost three hours to assemble it
The chest looks nice overall, but I'm a little disappointed with the quality. The exposed screws are covered with plastic caps that don't really stay on, which makes the chest look kind of cheap. I'm also a little disappointed with the drawers. The sides and backs of the drawers are much, much shallower than the drawer fronts (by a few inches, at least), and it really limits how much can be stored in the drawers without spilling over the sides and getting caught in the drawer tracks. I've bought unassembled furniture from Overstock before that has been great, and I was expecting comparable quality.
It was very easy to put together.
I am pleased overall with this lingerie chest. It serves it's purpose and holds more than many others of the same size. The finish is extremely fragile and scratches/chips easily, but, overall, for the price it is a fine piece. Assembly took 2 people 2 1/2 hours*, but everything was there and, with some attention to detail the instructions got us through it!! * If I had a power screwdriver it would have gone much faster!! I still use the old fashioned kind and the blister on my hand is healing slowly :-)

As always "some assembly required" is way off, I was shocked when it arrived in two flat boxes.....and the person I got to put it together threw the tie for the wall away?????? Can't imagine using this but if I should....please send me a replacement. I was very please with your price for shipping and the promptness of your delivery. Arrived in excellent time.

Read the other reviews. This is a good size construction project. I have built many things and I am pretty handy with tools. I usually never need instructions and that is a good things because the ones that came with this were dismal and in a couple places wrong., I spent about 5 hours building this and I was very disappointed. I chose to put it in my garage and painted it white to cover the cheap faux wood finish.. The drawers have sliding rails that are so cheap they should be ashamed. I would have tried for a refund but I tossed the packaging before I realized that the chest was junk.
I love the look of the dresser and am very happy with the size and functionality. However, putting it together was extremely difficult- actually impossible if you don't have a power screw driver. It was also very time consuming. But for the price I'm happy with the piece.
We needed a chest that would fit a specific space in a closet. I spent a lot of time online checking out a variety of chests and reading reviews. I took a chance on this chest because the dimensions were exactly what we needed and I was impressed by the fact that it was made with MDF wood composite, which is much better than particle board and won't warp. Plus, it's made in North America, which I can only assume is Canada because it didn't say USA.
We got the white one. The drawer slides and drawer pulls are metal. I was worried after reading reviews about how difficult is was to put together, but I felt that the price was good and it would be worth the effort. It only took my husband and I about 2 1/2 hours to put it completely together. The trick was convincing my husband to follow the steps in order. : ) The dimensions of the finished chest were exactly what they said on the web site.
It looks so nice that I really didn't want to put it in a closet! It's very sturdy and has a horizontal piece of support wood inside the middle of the frame. The drawers are all even and slide effortlessly. All the pieces were there and there were no damaged parts. It was packed really well.
The only negative thing I can say about it is that the instructions said it came with a wall attachment for stabilizing. Ours didn't. But we didn't need it. It fits snugly in the closet. If you were going to use this out in the open, you might want to attach it to the wall and put the heavier items in the bottom drawers.
I still can't believe what a great buy this was! Every time I go into the room where we put it, I like to open the closet and admire it. Seriously, I do that. : ) I highly recommend this little cupboard and encourage anyone interested in it not to let the scary reviews about how difficult it is to put together affect your decision. Just separate and count all the parts to make sure everything is there before you get started. And try to find someone to help you. It will go much faster with two people.
Would I recommend this to a friend? Only one who wouldn't be overwhelmed by the hundreds of pieces they'll see when this arrives! I began by checking the pieces and hardware to make sure everything was included. Nothing was missing; I had maybe two extra items (spacer, screw, that kind of thing). Ready to go; extremely apprehensive about the amount of work involved.
A lot of that work hinged on studying the pieces and the directions to orient myself. Deep into the process I saw that some pieces had "L" or "R" but didn't notice this at first, and there were some that didn't.
Biggest actual difficulty was that the plastic dowels seemed to big for the holes. The directions didn't alert me to this. I had to take a hammer and pound them in. Then to insert the piece with the dowel into the furniture I thought I'd have to hammer the furniture itself, and I worried about ruining the finish. I thought I'd put something protective between furniture and hammer: turns out in the drawing, they show exactly this. Take a piece of heavy cardboard from the packaging and protect finish while hammering. That worked well.
One really annoying problem with was when pounded the little nails in to hold the cardboard in place on the back and the back of the drawers. For some reason I found it very hard to place the nails precisely enough so that they all would go directly in, exactly as they should. A fraction of a millimeter wrong and bam: split the finish with a slightly protruding nail. Argggghhh! Fortunately we decided the lingerie chest would go in a closet because looking at that every day would really bother me). This exact problem has occurred before on other similar assembly projects.
You'd think they could figure out a way to make the whole thing simpler to do and easier to understand. I only had manual screwdrivers (which sometimes started slipping). The whole thing would have gone much faster if I'd had only of those handy little drills. <sigh> I'm still seeing the screwdriver working those slippery screws when I close my eyes at night.
I am so very glad to be done building this thing and I think the resulting piece of furniture is nice. Good luck to you if you decide to take on this project. Patience, patience, patience.
