I was a bit aprehensive when I purchased this piece and the matching nightstand. Neither had good reviews when I bought them but I took a chance. I am so glad that I did. I wanted a very rich dark wood to furnish my guest room. I didn't want a huge set since it would only be used when I had guests. This set was perfect.
A few have complained about the assembly. I will say this... it seems that the sturdier the furniture, the harder it is to put together. If you want everything tight and sturdy then you shouldn't look for an easy assembly. Tight screws are good! Yes, you will need a good power drill, and I do recommend having 2 people to do the assembly. The instructions are good. If you take your time and really look at the pictures to figure out your next step, you should do okay. If you have these tools and 2 people, it should take about 2 hours. Feel free to use a hammer if a screw won't start. It really helps.
As for the size, before you buy this piece, measure out where you want to put this and how much room you want it to take. Then compare it to the size of this item. If you are planning to use this yourself as a dresser, chances are, this piece is going to be smaller than you want. In my case, it was perfect b/c I wanted to keep the room uncluttered but still furnished. I didn't want huge furniture. I would say, this is more like a short chest of drawers than a dresser. And yes, it's true the drawers are not very deep. Currently, I am still looking for a mirror to put up that matches this piece to complete the look.
The bottom line is, I searched and searched for this look in the stores and just couldn't find anything unless it was veneer (and it costed just as much!). This is real wood (drawers and backs are dense partical board I think) and so I dont have to worry about the tiniest little thing ruining the finish, or peeling veneer. I have yet to be unhappy with anything that I have gotten from Overstock. The shipping is fast, everything is packaged well, couldn't ask for more. Thanks again Overstock!
This is a good product but the image is deceiving because you are getting a chest of drawers that is at most 3 1/2 feet tall probably shorter....
So if you are a big guy like me you will not beable to use it for jeans and pants. Works for smaller items like t-shirts, shorts and underclothes...
This is a very nice looking piece of furniture, and it's rock solid, but that's about the most I can say. It's not very practical. After spending over 8 hours putting it together--that's right, 8 hours--I now have a dresser with 6 drawers that are a mere 4.5 inches deep! The product description claims 6 inches. Not so. I would have sent it back but the return shipping would have cost me close to $50.00.
Although the photo looks like a full-sized dresser, it is only about one yard tall. Don't make the same bad mistake that I did and neglect reading the measurements, unless you need a miniature dresser.
Very decent piece of furniture and it looks good.
One complaint however - drawers could be deeper (perhaps 4 rows instead of 5 would do it).
Depending on your "handyman skills level" it may take anywhere between 1.5 and 3 hours to assemble.
I would say if not power drill then at least power screwdriver is a must.
Also one tip for you: put in all of the drawers before attaching back panel just to ensure everything is lined up properly.
The chest of drawers was moderately easy to put together as a single person and would have been easy with two people. The look is nice, and it's pretty solidly made. That said, I made the mistake of not looking at the dimensions too closely, so I failed to understand how shallow each of the drawers were. To give you a sense, they're about one folded medium thickness sweater deep. Since I live in New England, this isn't very practical. Of course, I didn't really realize this until I put it all together, so I'm using it until I find something else I like with the appropriate dimensions.
We bought two and they match our bed frame beautifully. They also give us space for storage, but don't take up anymore space than a bedside table. they really do what I wanted them to do serve as two pieces of furniture in one.
I have a small woodworking shop, but just bought a new house and need to furnish my kids bedrooms. I ordered the night stand of this to make sure I would like it for the quality, etc. Very solid and is not a melamine piece of junk. Now, about the assembly (and I find this true on all this stuff) I used wood glue on the dowels and actually used clamps to hold it together square while it was drying for both the chest and drawers. If you just rely on the grommets and dowels to hold it together I think you are in for a fight. Once I glued and clamped it, it's not going to ever come loose. I can't recommend this for everyone, but you are going to need some patience and time to put these together. Overall it's a great piece of furniture and my daughter adores it. A little wood glue goes a long way but it sure does make a huge difference in stability and overall quality feel.

Too much, in my opinion - it took me way to long to assemble this - from putting on the slides, to the drawer fronts, etc. It was a while ago, but I remember saying afterwards that I'll never buy un-assembled furniture again!pjrbfy on Dec 31, 2012
24" wide, 15" front to back & 3 1/2" deep. I consider this a small chest.nanny621 on Dec 19, 2012
