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.
First set me start off by saying I love overstock & have bought several pieces from them & been more the impressed by the accuracy & price.
This piece however I am NOT. I have spent months looking & considering spending a very high penny on a nice dresser from several designer stores for our master bedroom.
I decided to check overstock & fell in LOVE with the color of this dresser. It had a vintage look but the color gave it a more distressed feel.
I ordered the dresser & it arrived within a week. When the boxes arrived (3 total) everything was intact & perfect.
The reason I am giving this piece 3 stars is because the drawers are NOT ENTIRELY WOOD. Let me repeat that, the back side & sides of every drawer is MDF.The front & bottom of the drawers ARE wood.
My husband had already started building it when we noticed this. The description states "wood" not part of it is wood (like the actual visable parts are wood).
IF I would have known this, I would have rather spent 2 or 3 times the price on a dresser that was ALL made out of wood. VERY disappointing & not expected since everything I have ever bought from overstock that states "wood" is actually ALL wood.
Now i realize there were not many reviews on here, but I don’t understand how everyone has FAILED to mention that....
ALSO, the second reason I dropped a star is because there is no bottom to the dresser! I have NEVER seen any piece of furniture designed without a bottom. I mean even the cheap all MDF pieces have a bottom....
A HUGE disappointment. HOW can they fail to mention that? So, basically you can put your hand underneath the dresser & feel the bottom of the drawer. There is no wood between the drawer bottom & the ground..
Assembly process wasn't bad at all. It took my husband by himself about 2 hours. Directions weren't clear but he doesn’t follow directions anyways.
If I wasn't soo excited about the look of this dresser & my husband hadn't built it already I would have returned it.From the outside you would never notice the drawers aren't wood or that there isn't a bottom. So, thats why I gave it a 3 stars because no one can really tell unless I point it out. I wrote this review to warn others. The drawer sides & back piece are MDF & the dresser doesn't have a bottom
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? 100% accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. the actual wood peices are great quality, the MDF pices however make the piece not the BEST quality...
How accurate was the on site description of the product? not the best
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.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Good
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It's average; sturdiness of actual dresser and its parts needs work.

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.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? very close
Please tell us about the quality of the product. high quality considering budget price + solid wood!

I had high hopes for this dresser. Assembly was difficult but we knew that, so I'm not docking it for that. The quality is terrible, the drawers scratch so easily-3 of the 6 drawers came scratched. So now, I have to take apart and reassemble replacement parts...who has time for that? The finish on mine is really inconsistent, it looks like the drawer fronts were painted from completely different batches of paint....it has this toxic chemical smell, just what everyone want to breath in their bedroom. I would not buy this again, I would not recommend to a
Friend, it's not a value because it's scratches so easily. Extremely dissatisfied, and wish we would not have purchased. Would return if it was reasonable. I, blown away that others have rated as high quality-it's not.
The dresser was shorter than I expected. Yes I could have taken out a tape measure to measure the height before I ordered. But the height doesn't bother me. Very happy with the quality and style of the product!
The product looks very nice but when you open and close the drawers it feels like it's made out of very cheap material. It has a very lightweight feel to it and the drawers are somewhat wobbly. When my guests see the dresser they are impressed. I just make sure not to have them open/close the drawers or else they will think differently.
Essentially it feels like typical Ikea furniture, which is not saying anything bad about Ikea. But the buyer needs to be aware of this before they buy.
The assembly took about 2 hours but it was fairly straight forward.
If I had to do it all over again, I would not have ordered this product.
This dresser looks great, but isn't without fault. Ours arrived with knicks on three different pieces. None big enough to warrant returning it, but still disappointing none the less. Several of the hardware pieces had issues too (no ridges on screws, etc) and one of the knobs did not have a hole drilled in it. It took two of us about 3 1/3 hours to put together. The material is sturdy and I like the final look; however, even for a lower-cost dresser it would be nice to get undamaged pieces and usable hardware.
So I know everyone is complaining about the assembly - so Ill be honest I paid someone to do it. They are assemble stuff for a living, and even they complained when it was done saying 'so many small pieces'. BUT it looks amazing in my bedroom. If your looking for something modern and sophisticated this is it. I looked everywhere for a grey dresser to compliment my elegant grey/white themed - glad I picked this. Especially for the price - great find.
