I ordered two of these dressers, and I just put one of them together. It took me about 6 hours to assemble, but I was working by myself. For the most part, the directions were intuitive and they even threw in a few extra screws/dowels/etc. for good measure. Each dresser came in three large boxes weighing about 50-60 lbs each. They were packed very well--not a nick or scratch on any of the pieces as I inspected them right out of the box. You really need to pre-drill some tiny holes in the drawers before attaching the rails with the screws, otherwise you risk splitting the wood (everything else came pre-drilled). When all is said and done, I think it's worth it to save a few hundred dollars to assemble the furniture yourself. I would put this furniture quality on par with xxxxxx or some other shops like xxxxxxx, etc.

This is a great value for the money - with one caveat - it's extremely labor intensive to put together. There were so many pieces. Fortunately they were labeled, but it still took over three hours to assemble. All the drawer slides had to be installed as well as everything else being assembled. However, it was well worth the time and money. It's a quality piece of furniture. I couldn't find anything in a store for double the price that came close to the quality.

The dresser takes a while to put together. I would recommend using an electric screwdriver if possible because my hands/fingers are a bit sore/blistered from the assembly. Overall the dresser is a nice size. Tall, roomy but not too bulky. The directions are pretty straightforward, and all the necessary pieces were included. I bought this to go with a simple platform bed (not of the same set) but the wood colors seem to match and I'm relieved that I can fit a lot of clothes into this dresser and unclutter my closet! Probably the best dresser I've owned in terms of appearance and space. Plus the price is a lot better than other dressers I've shopped for online.

I did get this on sale, but even at the regular price I think this item is a great value. The pieces are nicely made and the wood is solid. Drawers fit and glide nicely, and seem to be able to hold a decent amount of weight. The color is just as pictured on the site.
As other reviewers have noted, it is an extensive assembly. I have a decent amount of experience assembling this type of furniture, and I am very handy. I bought two- the first one took me 4 hours, the second one took 3. As long as you take care to double check you haven't missed one of the very numerous steps it is straight forward, and the instructions and hardware kit are complete. Once assembled properly it feels quite sturdy and solid. I do highly recommend a power screwdriver, as there are a bazillion screws and cam locks. I also had to employ a hand held sledge with a towel wrapped piece of scrap wood to protect the furniture from the hammer, as getting the pieces to fully squeeze together required this extra power.
I would recommend this to anyone desiring a mid-grade quality piece of furniture. It is a massive step up from the Swedish design type MDF furniture I am replacing, and for a comparable price as the lower quality stuff.

After having shopped around at the local stores for furniture I decided to take my chances on Overstock.com. So glad I did! Most furniture we found was 2-3 times the price of this furniture line (wavelength) AND was very cheaply constructed. We purchased two night stands, the dresser and the chest. It took my husband and I ALL day to put everything together but with what we saved and the quality of the furniture it was a day well spent!
The furniture is SOLID. No flimsy drawer bottoms or backings! There are ALOT of pieces and you need to be good at reading directions but everything fits together well. You MUST use an electric drill. If you screw everything in by hand you will probably get carpal tunnels syndrome AND take 3 weeks to put everything together. Our recommendation is to divide up all your parts and then start with the drawers. We had a little system going when I did what I could with popping in the metal screws and using a rubber mallet on the wooden pegs; then my husband used the screw driver to tighten the screws and lock down the tracks. This worked really well!
Make sure you pay attention to details. Thank goodness we made the mistake in the beginning on a nightstand. There IS a right and wrong side for some of the wooden dividers that go on the front of the furniture. After putting together a night stand we noticed we used the almost black side of the wood for one piece instead of the brown side. It's hard to tell until you line the pieces up side by side but then you see the difference. BE DETAIL ORIENTED!
The only con we found with this furniture is on both of the large items- the chest and the dresser, there is one drawer on each that seems tighter than the rest. It's not a big deal but it will probably be an uavoidable aspect of assembling your own furniture.
All in all we are super happy with this purchase!
It is an absolute pain to build this. it does not take long but the directions were so bad. most of it was easy to follow but some parts you had to sit back awhile and figure it out yourself. it is a beautiful dresser but its not very sturdy although its made or very heavy and nice wood. I think you really do need a drill in order for this to come out perfect and not wobbly. I don't have the drawers in mine yet because I want to get a drill to get every screw nice and tight because as of right now it does not seem very stable. I think for this price would be able to find an already built dresser somewhere else and not have to go through the struggle. They took great care of the outside parts of the dresser but the insides had scratches and dents in them. I bought this one as wells at the matching 9 drawer dresser and im waiting to build up energy to build that one. although its beautiful its just not worth the effort or the time. I should of just bought something from ******* **** and got something of a bit higher quality and already put together.
Nice set of drawers. Easy to assemble, but it took some time. Some people said it was too complicated, but it really wasn't. My only complaint is in the quality of the metal hardware. We broke the heads off of several screws and broke some of the screw locking mechanisms on assembly. Luckily, there was a plethora of extra parts, so it turned out to be more of an annoyance than a problem.
My husband and I said over and over that we couldn't believe how heavy each piece was. We bought 2 nightstands, the dresser and the chest. Make sure you register for Club O. You'll get about **** back on all this. Also, put it in your cart and leave it for a day if you can't find an extra coupon code. They will send you one to prompt you to buy. Or you can check out Retailmenot.com.
You cannot scratch the surface with your fingernail as one reviewer said, unless you are determined to do it. It's not cheap wood by any means. The quality is very high and they don't cut corners. The bottom of the drawers are made of super high quality particle board (not the kind that falls apart, warps or chips away). No problems there.
READ BEFORE ASSEMBLY: I cannot imagine doing this project without a drill. No way. Make sure your torque is low. When you are screwing on the rollers to the bottom of the drawers PRE-DRILL the holes. It is the only place they are not pre-drilled and we split the wood on the first drawer. It's worth the extra effort not to ruin it.
Before you attach the long, skinny middle boards that go between the drawers on the dresser make sure it is not warped at all. Ours is and the the drawer hits it a little when closing.
That being said, it's high quality and worth every penny. The self-assembly is TOTALLY worth not having veneers for the same price or more. I would do this all over again. Assembly is not hard; it just takes time.
After about a year, this item started falling apart. While the front of the drawers are wood, the sides and back of drawers are made of some cheap material that is basically fancy cardboard. The interiors of the drawers became misshapen and the backs of the drawers started to come apart from the sides. Save your money and purchase a piece of furniture that is truly all wood, not this piece of junk that only has wood cabinet fronts. Since this no longer holds clothes well since the back of the drawers keep falling off, we are going to throw this away and buy something else.
Beware - my husband is a mechanical engineer and with a power drill was able to assemble in about 3 hours. But he pointed out where the instructions just didn't include very important information - guess they assumed you would know - and he figured it out because he builds and designs for a living. I would have torn my hair out if I had to assemble this so just be warned. Other than that I would have rated this 5-Stars.
