Great looking dresser. Took about 1.5 hours to put together. Three pieces of advice -- pay special attention when installing the drawer slides, I mixed the two styles up and had to go back and redo; use a cordless drill with clutch on lowest setting to speed assembly; and I white Elmer's glue to the bottom seams of each of the drawers after they were assembled -- it really improved their stiffness. Perfect dresser for a guest room.
This dresser looks great in pictures. But don't be fooled. It was relatively easy to put together. Once assembled, it looked as if it needed another middle wood piece to desperate the drawers. The base of the the shelves are a very thin piece of pressed wood. Maybe 1/16". It cannot hold much weight. The front panels were pulled off within 2 weeks and won't stay connected. The front and sides are solid, but the drawers are not. I am buying a "solid" wood dresser to replace this trashy thing.
This piece it gorgeous...but you need power screwdriver for sure and pay attention when attaching rollers for the drawers. They don't clarify which goes where...we had to remove a couple because we guessed wrong. Otherwise pretty straight forward. Took 3 hours to assemble- but worth it!
It definitely looks like the picture. However putting it together was a lot of work, lots of details and etc. I have put Ikea stuff together before but this drawer was a different level. Overall I am happy for my purchase because with this price i wouldn't be able to buy something so nice.
The dresser is actually more of a dark olive green then charcoal but it still looked nice with my beige furniture and headboard.. The construction wasn't so bad but then again my husband built it and had no problems but it will take time maybe 1-2 hrs.. There is one problem that one of the drawers gets jammed because it's not aligned properly but it's more of the manufacturing of the drawer, cuz I thought my husband built it wrong.. I was reluctant to buy it since so many reviewed of its poorly construction but it's actually not bad at all. If you're used to buying ikea furniture, this is no different. Overall I recommend this product! Oh and wait for a good coupon to go with!
drawers did not come with the correct number of pull knobs; drawer pulls do not align well and it takes a lot of effort to put together so that they don't catch. you have to pull them out very slowly and evenly or they will not come out. I've had to replace hardware. scratches and dents easily.
Look, I've bought a few items now from OS. This dresser is not bad, really. It's a great price for what you get. It took me about 3 hours to put together. The color is a cool gray/taupe hints of beige. It has clean and a mid century feel. Remember people, your not buying a $2,500.00 dresser!!! The drawers are little cheap feeling...but who cares. Your guests are not opening your drawers, you are.
