I bought this set based on the numerous positive reviews, the great price and how attractive it looked on line. I was not disappointed. I bought both the 6-drawer and 4-drawer Vilas dressers. I love them both! I assembled the 6-drawer first which took me a long time. On day two, I was able to assemble the 4-drawer much faster. Please take the advice of the other reviewers and get yourself a power drill (screwdriver). It will be an absolute bear if you don't have one. Also, take your time with the instructions. Observe the drawings carefully.
Both dressers turned out beautiful but there were a couple snags along the way with the 4-drawer that I hadn't encountered with the 6-drawer. There was a cosmetic flaw on one of the pieces that I didn't discover until nearly halfway assembled. I called customer service and they offered to send me a replacement piece. I dreaded the idea of taking it apart and waiting for a replacement part so I negotiated a discount instead. Customer service was friendly and very accommodating. I ran into another snag when I was putting the drawer pulls on. One of the bolts threads was messed up and it was slightly bent. Instead of calling customer service again I just went to my neighborhood hardware store and got a new metric bolt for about ˘. Easy fix. Despite a couple snags, I am very pleased with the dressers and Overstock's customer service. I would recommend this product and buying through this company.

This is a beautiful piece of furniture IF you get it together right. NOTE to future buyers: The runners come grouped in sets of 4 that don't go together. The flat ones are used first in the build, the corner ones later, on the drawer build. (If you have never built a dresser before, this will help a lot). As well, the photos of the runners are terrible on the directions. We found a You Tube vid that helps me visualize this and we were good to go. Second issue is the cam bolts - the long bolts must be screwed in ALL the way to work properly. Use a flathead screwdriver to turn the bolt once you put the 2 pieces together.. turn it gently and it works beautifully. We did not realize we didn't have the bolt screwed in all the way until after the first drawer and a couple errors.. but they were fixable :) and all is fine now.
Not a scratch on this. VERY well packed :) Well made piece of furniture :) Happy buyer!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? definitely darker - this is a deep brown tobacco with some variations... it is gorgeous, but not the lighter brown depicted. I like it better actually than the photo

I purchased this with some trepidation after reading the comments about difficult assembly.
Those comments were not an exaggeration. Between all of the screws, locks, dowels and pieces of wood, I would estimate 100 parts/pieces. Instructions were not very helpful.
I found it so difficult to assemble I ended up hiring a handy man to do so. It took him over an hour with a drill. I have assembled many pieces of furniture and never been so stumped.
The end product was lovely but I would recommend this only if you are very adept at putting together a lot of pieces with less than helpful instructions.

Pros: If you can assemble this dresser, it looks very nice—good design, pretty wood, all solid materials.
Cons: Very hard to assemble, even for an experienced person. The biggest problem is that some of the bigger bolts and screws tend to snap off with little stress. Be very careful with this hardware—just poor quality. (As opposed to the wood, which is of high quality). I had to improvise a lot after two pieces of hardware broke off inside the wood.I thought about calling up Overstock for a return, but it just wasn't worth the hassle at that point.
Advice: If you do buy this, read the instructions very carefully, go slow, and prep screw holes with a drill. Don't even think of assembling this without a drill.
Love my night stand and 4 drawer dresser. Less than 2 hours to put the dresser together. Have a drill, philips and large philips or flathead handy. Make sure you put the rollers on correctly in the first place! Love the quality. Solid piece for a great price.

Dresser took about 3 hours to assemble. Glued all the ends to improve dresser durability. Disappointed with the drawer hardware (glides..etc) they don't work very well (noisy and sticky) and they just don't seem to be robust. Would give it 5 stars if the drawer hardware were improved.
I am love with everything except the inside of the draws because they feel rough and are not as finished as the outside is. I know, but for the cost, they could/should be. The build time was about 2-3 hours with one person - get an electric screwdriver. Read the reviews on how to put the draws together, but the instructions are very good.
Having never shopped at overstock.com, I was forced to use other people's reviews to decide whether to shop here and/or which product I might select. I am happy to say that both have exceeded my expectations. I love both dressers and strongly recommend them. They arrived in a very timely manner and were quite easy to assemble. The boxes were well packaged and there were no dings or dents in any of the surfaces or corners. All the needed parts were included and even a few extras for those of us who lose one under the bed while we sit there in the middle of the night determined to assemble the dresser and set it in place before we go to sleep. I look forward to future purchases.
Trying to assemble this dresser has been just a nightmare... In the past I have quickly and without any issues assembled pieces of furniture from ******, ****, **** ***, ****** and ****** **********, thus I know I do have some experience assembling furniture. No experience can compensate for lack of ingenuity and quality of this product. Is it really that difficult to come up with tracks that would make the drawers slide? I can't even open or close the drawers half of the time. The only great thing about this product is that Overstock sent me a replacement and they were very nice about it. So now I'm trying to assemble the second dresser, but it's just as bad :( I've had two friends help me - one is an engineer and the other one works specifically with wooden furniture....even that didn't help. I'm desperate... Lost hours on this dresser. I also bought the nightstand, but it wasn't as bad as the dresser (the drawer will open/close....just not easily, sometimes you have to yank it...ahhh :( I just wish somebody could pay me for the over 10 hours that I've spent on this dresser and it's still not working :(((
I previously purchased the Vilas bedroom set with exception of this high-boy/chest because it wouldn't fit in my old place until now. I am so happy with this dresser! It came very well packaged and there was no damage that I noticed. Assembly was as expected. I put together the frame in a couple hours one night, and finished the drawers the next night in just a couple hours time too.

Is there a trick to assembling the runner rollers so that they are equidistant from each other? I've put them all in, but am afraid to tighten the screws for fear that the gaps will be uneven. thanks,lucyv on Dec 17, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi lucyv, there doesn't seem to be any tricks to installing it. Although one thing that I have learned is to tighten it as far as I can (without over doing it) and then back it up a quarter of a turn. I hope this helps, thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 19, 2013

Thank you for shopping Overstock.com. This item is made with Rubberwood, which is a member of the maple family, and is one of the most durable hardwoods on the market today. Overstock does not weight test, however this item would be very sturdy. overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 22, 2013
Is this piece 100% solid wood? The description says rubberwood, but one of the reviews says that the outer pieces are real wood and the interior pieces are MDF. I was curious to know whether the reviewer was confused or if some parts are indeed MDF. Thank you!kladewski on Feb 8, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your inquiry. We were able to confirm with our support team. This piece is made of solid rubberwood except for interior drawer box which is made of mdf with veneer lamination.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 14, 2013
I just received the dresser and it is quite solid and heavy... very pleased.suzzen on Apr 19, 2013
I am the original asker and purchased this piece. I am responding since there are conflicting answers here. The Overstock Customer Care response is correct. The exterior portions of the dresser are real wood, including the top and sides of the dresser, and the front of the drawers. The drawers themselves (what the customer service person called "drawer box") are not real wood.kladewski on Apr 19, 2013
