The armoire looks nice once assembled, but it is not very sturdy and I don't think the TV measurements listed are accurate. One of the drawer fronts was very scuffed. The assembly instructions are not very clear and there was a "correction" to the instructions included. None of the parts were marked, so you had to guess at which piece went where. This is the first time I have been disappointed with a purchase on Overstock.com.
I purchased this Armoire after looking for months. The price was great. It was not hard to put together. Yiy can do most it of it alone. Installing the doors was the hardest part and that is when you will need another pair of hands. It is sturdy and roomy. I only wish the draws were a bit deeper.
Once you get the hang of assembling furniture, this is a breeze. The instructions are straightforward and all the pieces in the Broadway collection follow the same format. This was the best deal I could find where I could have an all-matching bedroom set and so far I love all the pieces.While some of the parts did come with minor scratches (I suppose that's normal wear-and-tear in the delivery process), there was a substantial indent in the top of the armoire that I received. I used a hammer to bang it somewhat back into shape and the included marker to fix the color, but it was pretty disappointing to receive it this way since otherwise the piece would look so beautiful.
The finished product is a really gorgeous, bluish grey piece with a lot of room for storage. However, it took us hours to assemble it. It arrived in 4 large boxes, each over 50 lbs. It took a lot of time and a lot of space, and the pieces are really heavy. Because there were so many heavy pieces to move around, we ended up accidentally scratching the wood in the process. My finished product has several scratches on it, some so big that we had to strategically place the armoire in our bedroom so that no one would see them. I understand this item could not have arrived fully assembled, but I do believe there were a lot of parts of the assembly that could have been and should have been done ahead of time. Also, it would be nice if there was a way to add the optional shelf in the middle (of the top half), as the two shelves are so spread apart it makes it hard to use this item for clothes. All in all, I like this piece a lot. It is absolutely beautiful and I can tell it will last me for years. Not to mention it holds a ton of stuff! But if I had known at the time of purchase what I know now about the assembly, I would have looked for something else.
