Great purchase for the price and you can't beat free shipping. I received the product in about a week and it looks great in my 4-year-old daughter's bedroom. It is very sturdy and she uses it as a wardrobe to hang her clothes. My husband took about an 1 1/2 to assemble it, although he stated the instructions lacked details. It is important to insert the blue dowels as they make the unit a little more sturdy. Sturdy enough, not to attach to the wall. It is a heavy piece of furniture as well. I would definitely recommend it to other people.
If you've been looking to purchase this armoire don't hesitate. I needed a smaller cupboard in my walk-in closet and this fit my needs perfectly. It's not just for a child as most people were saying. You'll be amazed. Plenty of room, although I did ask my husband to make me an extra shelf by cutting a pre-laminated white board to fit. LOVE IT..! OS does it again. No complaints. And husband loves putting things together and had no complaints.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Sturdy, heavy and a good product for the price.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? It was spot on with color and dimensions. I love this armoire.
Armoire is good quality, but it is also VERY heavy; it is a good idea to build it in the room that you intend to use it in. The directions are not as precise as they could be regarding positioning of the boards when assembling--be sure everything is how it should be before you tighten everything. The Armoire is spacious and is able to hold a lot of my toddler's clothing.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. nice solid piece
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? very good
The intructions leave out much detail. You need to be careful to walk through each step and look ahead so as to not miss any details. I quit handy but still had some trouble. The fron doors need to be carefully adjusted or they will not match up. The entire closet wobles and that changes the alignment of the two doors??? Nice fiinish but a little small.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. A little cheap but the price was also reasonable
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? OK
I needed a place to store a small TV and this fit the bill. Armoire arrived in 5 days. Material not top quality and there were several scratches, on the inside, but nothing I can't live with. It took my husband a couple of hours to put together (and he's a contractor) but it looks wonderful and it gave us two extra drawers. It's not that sturdy and the knobs are loose but, for my purpose, it's perfect. The white color matches our headboards & end tables beautifully. Exactly color shown; bright white, as opposed to cream white.
I would recommended this to a friend who needed to put together an armoire for immediate use and has not had luck finding exactly what they want. I have been surprised and disappointed how much this piece of furniture smells of formalin. I believe the particle board must continue to off-gas for some time. Very useful piece, but think twice before putting in a room with a baby or a room with poor ventilation.
This is a decent quality, respectable wardrobe for the price. Yes, it's mostly particle board, but you're not paying for real wood throughout. You have the choice of either inserting a shelf in the top portion or hanging clothes, but you can't do both unless you are hanging very small clothes. Make sure you check the dimensions; it is medium-sized, not large, and is more suitable for child-sized clothing. It is usable for teens as a supplementary piece, but it is not really for adults. It assembles very easily in about 1.5-2 hours if you have built these kinds of pieces before. If you have not, the instructions can be confusing and lack detail, but just use common sense and be prepared to disassemble some pieces (like the runners for the drawers) if you make a mistake. All you need is a screwdriver and hammer. Overall, it is a dependable, functional piece of furniture, and I would recommend it to others, so long as you know you are not getting a high-quality, all wood piece of furniture.
Obviously for this money, you are not getting a super solid piece, but considering the price it is the perfect armoire for a child's room. A couple of pieces were missing and they have been sent, but that added another two weeks onto my assembly time. It does go together fairly well, but do follow the directions very carefully. I put one piece on the wrong side and in the process of removing it to put it on the other side it cracked. Overall, not a bad value.
Delivery of the arrmoire was timely. There are pros and cons to the product. It is an attractive unit with adequate space and fits well in a dressing room. Assembly took about 4 hours and instructions were inadequate. All parts were included but some fasteners were separated from others. The unit is not as sturdy as I would wish but it will suffice. It takes the adventurous to assemble.
Admittedly, this armoire is inexpensive, but the quality is so poor that I don't expect it to last very long. The drawer bottoms are cardboard-like, so any amount of clothes will bow the bottoms and make the drawers useless. I am going to have to go to **** ***** and buy 1/4" material to try to rebuild these drawers. I don't expect the drawer glides to last either - also of cheap material. The hanging bar rod holders are plastic and screwed into the sides with very short screws. Any weight at all on this rod will pull those holders out. I could not be more disappointed. Please do not buy this. Spend a little more money on something that will last more that a few weeks. Overstock should discontinue offering this cheaply constructed armoire.
This is the first item I have ordered from Overstock that really was not up to speed or my expectations. Very difficult to put together and not sturdy until you fortify it with "added" nuts and bolts. Would not buy again - although the price was right and one does get what one pays for.
As many of the comments said, the instructions were challenging and it took 2 hours to put it together. The magnetic strip for the doors is not very magnetic. That's the only reason I didn't give it 4 stars. It fits nicely in my toddler's room. Price is great so when my daughter starts drawing on it, I don't feel too bad. :)
