I switched out the black knobs with nickel-finish knobs of the same shape and it made a world of difference in making this dresser look modern and fresh (Found the knobs at Home Depot for ~$2 each; need 12 knobs). It is a nice brown color, slim, solid wood dresser that could blend into a variety of decor. This piece, after proper assembly, could go head-to-head with any number of the $999+ dressers from from big name furniture stores and come out even to on top. Assembly took ~5 hours with 2 people (one was an experienced handyman). Would recommend sorting and laying out the different pieces before getting started; use a power drill; read the instructions, but also use your judgment/common sense to determine which way the pieces should be facing (sometimes the directions were confusing in that regard). Not sure if I would buy a piece that is so labor intensive again, but I'm so pleased with how this item turned out. My first purchase from Overstock and I was not disappointed.
