Unless you are the son or daughter of Einstein and Mother Theresa, and earned a PhD in cryptography, expect to spend days on end pulling your hair out and cursing the heavens for the mess you have gotten yourself into. So difficult to put together even though I am usually decent at assembling furniture. Otherwise, beautiful dresser.

This dresser looks beautiful and really classes up our master bedroom, which was suffering from a lack of cohesion due to using two tiny cast-off mismatched dressers. The drawers are nice and wide and we can fit much more in its six drawers than we did in the 4-drawer and 3-drawer dressers (combined) we had previously. Two people assembling this together took a few hours; the frame came together in about 1.5-2 hours, and each drawer took an average of maybe 10-15 minutes, working at a relaxed pace with distractions. I would not recommend assembling this yourself as it is quite heavy and difficult to turn over. Maybe the word is just "unwieldy," although it is pretty heavy, especially compared to our previous dressers.
The product does have an "offgassing" smell for several days both in the box as well as once put assembled. I can only guess it's due to the processing or finish. I seem to remember this about a TV stand we bought from Overstock as well. The smell has dissipated a bit and we are burning candles to aide in the process.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Finish is even more interesting in person, a nice warm grey.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. This is better quality than IKEA for not too much more money, considering how large the dresser is. Followed instructions carefully and product appears sturdy.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate.
Dresser is average, finish, and color is just what I wanted. The sturdiness of the dresser after putting it together is questionable. I definitely will not be too forceful with it because I want it to last - and get my money's worth. For the price, I thought it would be a better than your basic Ikea furniture.

Looks awesome in our midcentury ranch house master bedroom. Modern yet respectful of the period. Nice heavy inverted cone cabinet pulls. This was on sale under $400 which is a great deal. I would consider it high quality for its price range. There are other color variations but we chose this "charcoal" color. Website pictures are accurate however the piece seems to pick up some color characteristics of the room depending on lighting conditions. Color is not dark. Think toffee or driftwood. Solid wood except rear backer. Some reviewers complain that it is difficult to assemble. The number of parts can appear overwhelming. However advance sorting, organization, review of the instructions prior to commencing assembly as well as using a low torque electric screwdriver would help in getting this assembled in under an hour. There was one hiccup. The top arrive damaged. However, Overstock was quick to address the issue and sent a replacement.

We love this dresser. It is solid and worth more than we paid. The only problem was it was time consuming to put together. We wee lucky enough to have a friend who owns a furniture store do it and it took 2 of his employees several hours to do.
I AM EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS PRODUCT. I READ THE REVIEWS CONCERNING ITS STURDINESS, BUT THOUGHT THAT THE CUSTOMERS WHO COMPLAINED ABOUT THE INTERGRITY OF THE PRODUCT, MAY NOT HAVE PUT IT TOGETHER PROPERLY. I WAS WROOOOOOOONG!!!!! THE DRESSER IS EXTREMELY WOBBLY. I HAVE NEVER HAD THE EXPERIENCE OF PURCHASING A DRESSER, PUTTING IT TOGETHER, AND THEN FEELING LIKE I DID NOT GET MY MONIES WORTH. I WAS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING AFFORDABLE, AND EXPECTED THAT ALEAST FOR THE PRICE, IT WOULD NOT SWAY FROM SIDE TO SIDE, AND THAT IT WOULD BEABLE TO SERVE THE PURPOSE OF HOLDING CLOTHES, IT DOESN'T EVEN DO THAT. I FIND THAT I CANNOT EVEN PLACE HEAVY SWEATERS OR JEANS IN THE DRAWS, IM TOO AFRAID THAT IT WILL FALL APART SOON. IN ADDITION, ONE OF THE KNOBS ARRIVED STRIPPED, AND SO IT WAS UNABLE TO FIT INTO THE SCREWS PROVIDED, AND SPEAKING OF SCREWS I WAS SHORT ON THREE OF THEM, AND LASTLY, ONE OF THE CORNERS ARRIVED DENTED. MY HUSBAND PUT THE DRESSER TOGETHER, AND THOUGHT THAT I HAD GOTTEN IT FROM IKEA BECAUSE THE CONSTRUCTION IS SO TERRIBLE. I WOULD SEND IT BACK, BUT I DO NOT WANT TO GO THROUGH THE TROUBLE OF PACKING, AND PAYING FOR THE SHIPMENT. WE ARE GOING TO SEE IF WE CAN GET SOME EXTRA LEG SUPPORT OR BRACKETS TO KEEP IT FROM WOBBLING. I RECOMMEND THAT OVERSTOCK STOP MARKETING THIS DRESSER. IT LOOKS GOOD, BUT IT IS NOT WORTH ONE PENNY.
As previous reviews said, this dresser comes in a lot of pieces. That being said, my boyfriend had no trouble putting it together. It took about an hour. Had I put it together, it would have taken a whole lot longer. The color is less charcoal and more of a grey brown, almost the color of a chinchilla. It's pretty and coordinates with my reclaimed wood bed. Upon assembly there was a drawer front that was scratched and a drawer side that split while it was being put together. I placed a call to Overstock and they had new pieces out to me within the week. Overall, I would recommend this dresser.
It's too bad this dresser is a horror to assemble because it is actually quite beautiful. I've successfully put together many items from Overstock but this one I just couldn't figure out. On my 3rd attempt to complete it the drawers were still completely unusable so this became used strictly for surface space. Disappointed.

Thank you for your inquiry. The dresser is strong enough to support a flat screen tv. We do recommend securing the tv to a wall or the unit itself for fear of tipping it over.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 13, 2013
