The quality of this dresser is pretty awful, the wood is not terrible looking for being fake wood, but the overall quality is terrible. The white pieces were breaking and we didn't even do anything to them and not to mention that the backing is cardboard. When I saw the dowels I knew I was in trouble, this is not sturdy and would not fit together. Don't waste your time or money, I'm returning this to overstock, luckily since it is my first return they have waived the shipping.
This looks really good once assembled. It is definitely a two-person job though, and will require patience. The instructions pictured the wheels for the drawers upside down, so the first helper who put it together did it backwards and we had to take it apart and do it over again. Pay close attention as you assemble to make sure that what you are doing is logical--which may not be what the instructions have you doing. For example, it's not really necessary to assemble it upside down and then flip it over again, which would be near impossible for one person to do alone. We ordered two and they look great together. Nice solid pieces of furniture.
This dresser is made with VERY VERY cheap materials and comes in literally a million pieces. I took me a week to put it together by myself Not to mention they didn't put enough cam lock screws in the package so I had to search at the local hardware store purchase some! DO NOT BUY THIS CRAP!
I agree with the first reviewer. This is VERY poor quality furniture. Luckily, our pieces were not damaged - as in "broken". However, paint had already rubbed off the front corners of the white side pieces when we unpacked it. The brown stain on the top of the dresser is fine, but on the fronts of the drawers it is very uneven... like they just handed someone a can of stain and a brush and said "go for it!". There is even a spot (small, thankfully) that is missing stain completely. And yes, the back is two pieces of cardboard with a huge piece of packing tape running down the middle to hold them together. All of that said, I do love the design. My husband and I like mid-century modern, and my sister said that the furniture looks like it came from the set of "Mad Men". If it weren't for the design I would have sent the furniture back. We ordered the matching night stand - which doesn't seem to be available now - and it was better. It has the cardboard backing as well, but no issues with uneven stain. Ive always had good luck with Overstock but now Im hesitant to order any more furniture. Im very disappointed that they are selling furniture with so many issues.
