We purchased 2 nightstands and the chest of drawers. One nightstand was assembled in under 2 hours. My wife did most of the assembly. The wood is excellent, beautiful rich color. It is darker than the picture but we prefer darker wood so we had noted this in the other reviews and were prepared for a darker piece. There are many pieces but again if you take your time and have a drill (use wood glue on the dowels) and a rubber mallet it won't be difficult. Instructions were good but would have been perfect if the diagramming included the letters which are labeled on the individual wood pieces. The visual would be stronger then and probably help those who aren't accustomed to assembling furniture.
This is for our guest room and is very handsome, of substantial weight and elegant looking when finished. Drawers slide effortlessly and the hardware is very classic. Solid wood pieces are hard to find and smaller night stands are difficult to find nowadays as well. We are pleased with the dimensions because again you must read the measurements and even map them out in the space if you have difficulty visualizing and really need a bigger night stand in the room.
Shipping was the usual quick overstock delivery and all pieces arrived unmarred. I researched extensively for pieces for our guest room that were solid wood and this is absolutely the best buy for the money. It is far better looking, solid hardwood and much less expensive than the veneer or solid hardwood options we found in stores and over the net. Excellent purchase if you practice due diligence, i.e., double check and/or map out dimensions, expect a darker cherry wood color, use the right tools, read the instructions carefully and take your time assembling.
Its a quality piece. Real wood. Quality tracks. Drawers roll smoothly, and it just looks sharp. I'd like to thank Overstock for packaging the pieces really well. All pieces were well labeled and protected - no scratches. We bought the matching dresser, chest and this nightstand and all six total boxes fit easily into our Camry. Assembly time for this piece took about 40 minutes between two people.
My husband and I put 2 of these nightstands together in less than 2 hours. The finish is lovely and the pieces were carefully packaged and labeled. My only complaint is that the drawers don't slide in/out easily. We have to hold down the cabinet while opening the drawers, as pulling hard enough to open a drawer will cause the nightstand to slide across the floor. So although they look great, they don't really perform very well.
This is one solid piece of furniture, and it came packaged in so many styrofoam panels that it could survive an air drop. Most of it is solid and very heavy hardwood, just the drawer sides, back and bottom are particle board. The finish is very nice, and the whole thing looks classy. One improvement during assembly would be to glue the whole thing together, since cam locks only provide that much stability, but for a nightstand it's fine. Overall it's a steal for the price.
This nightstand is beautiful and definitely worth the money. Only challenge I have is the 2nd drawer is a little harder to shut. Seems like it is sticking on something but there is nothing there. Might be a warp in the wood. Otherwise...great piece!
Although it is just a "Vermont" style since it is mad in India, it was very well made. I've put together a lot of *** cabinets and this had the same design right down to the hardware that holds it together. The instructions were not as complete as Ikea's, but were easy enough to understand as they were mostly step-by-step pictures showing what went where in proper order. My wife was very pleased with the nightstands.
I bought 2 of these nightstands for our bedroom and am very pleased with the design and quality. My husband and I put them together and it was a little tricky but if you read the directions carefully, they assemble well. The second one took a lot less time than the first. They look great in the bedroom and the drawers hold all our "clutter".
Very attractive piece, nightmare to put together. Virtually all of the wooden dowels fit in one hole but not the other that connected to them.. A rubber mallet did not help. In one case, the wood cracked. It was so bad that I gave up using the dowels and put pieces together using only the camlock screws.
The nightstand is solid wood in all places except the drawer bottom, drawer back, and drawer sides ,which are MDF. Even the back panel is 1/8 plywood. The finish is exactly as described. (The finish does not have that warmth as if it would be finished with an oil based varnish or lacquer, but unless one is a furniture expert one really can't tell the difference. That old time warmth is not common with today's finishes. Furniture enthusiasts will understand this.) Assembly instructions were easy to understand and if followed to perfection will yield a result that works & looks perfect. I am a perfectionist to the 10th degree when doing these products. Meaning-every screw is tightened to the correct torque and placed perfectly straight, screwed in all the way & at the correct angles. With this criteria & someone somewhat experienced it should come out perfect. FYI>>>My older teenage daughter tried helping me-she could not fully tighten some of the screws & cam screws .I had to do it myself. Hints. I broke a camlock bec.I did not follow directions to only turn it 180 degrees...use a wide flat head or hex wrench as recommended for the camlocks. Also,as with all camlocks you must tap the camlock into the hole until it recesses slightly.Don't use a drill driver for the last drop of tightening any of the screws. Feel the torque w/your manual screwdriver ,so as not to overtighten or undertighten. Complaints - Since 80 percent is made of solid wood, I would recommend the manufacturer to make the drawer pieces also in solid wood. When installing the drawer rail slides on to the drawer , I had a problem with the MDF edge on the bottom of the drawer sides (hole close to drawer front) splitting very ,very slightly on all drawers (believe me-unavoidable, unless predrilling it ,which is too time consuming to do correctly) .[They are not predrilled from the factory on purpose -probably to allow slight adjustment of the rails in the event one was not perfect in assembling the drawer.]. Overall the piece is a good value and looks beautiful.It does not have the look, feel, and quality of high end furniture. but you aren't paying high end prices . Remember follow directions to the T in order to get perfect results. Enjoy!
Hello averystar, we appreciate your inquiry. Yes, as with most dressers, the knobs on this dresser can be changed. We hope you have found this information helpful. Thank you for shopping with us. Have great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 12, 2013
Yes, they are held on by just a single screw.jlwallace on Nov 17, 2013
Please describe the guides used on the drawers. Are they ball-bearing metal glides, roller-wheel type metal glides, simple channel guides, plastic buttons in the frame that act to provide a bearing surface for the bottom of the drawer, or something else? A picture would be very helpful and much appreciated. Thanks!snarks on Jul 17, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us snarks. This dresser uses metal glides. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 24, 2013
The guides are metal and the drawers open and close easily. It is a well made dresser.lcsa on Aug 6, 2013
roller-wheel type metal glides, very smooth with a down tilt at closed so that the drawer will not slide open by itself unless tipped forward.jlwallace on Nov 17, 2013
I have a weird question. How deep is the overhang ledge on the side of the nightstand? I need two inches for a table clamp. Is there a way to check that information? Thanks.wuyou on Jan 19, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Rubberwood is wood from the Pará rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis). Rubberwood has been produced on a small scale, but has become much more common. There are extensive plantations with these trees in southeast Asia; the earlier practice was to just burn the tree at the end of its latex-producing cycle. Rubberwood is advertised as an "environmentally friendly" wood,as it makes use of plantation trees that have already served a useful function.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 15, 2013
Don't really know but it looks somewhat like a reddish mahogany.jlwallace on Nov 17, 2013

I bought this product last week and I am in the process of assembling this furniture. I am in the last step (step 8) of assembly and I am trying to insert the drawers in to the unit. However I am not able to insert the drawers since the gap between the slides in the unit and drawer rail is lot lower than the depth of the slide in the drawer. I checked all the steps few times and I have done everything correctly so far. Can someone help in putting the drawers in ? I do not want to return if possible. Also if I can be called on the phone number in my order that will be great. on Apr 7, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

What kind of wood is the Vermont Dresser and nightstand made out of? The ad says "constructed of solid wood" but, is this wood particle board or plywood with a veneer?mardigra8 on Mar 12, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
