This is a nice looking armoire of good quality. This is a large piece of furniture, so plan on some frustration and about half a day for assembly if you're not well versed in assembling things. If you know someone who could put it together for $50-$100 I would consider that money well spent. Looks great and worth the purchase when it's all said and done.
This armoire has a beautiful dark cherry finish, not a very red tone. For me, it was easy to assemble, but takes two people to flip up to stand the unit upright. Lot of extra storage!
We were looking for armoire to store blankets, sheets and towels. Since it was for the guest bedroom, it didn't need to be extravagant or expensive, but I was really suspect of the armoires I saw on the site for $$$. Solid wood assembled armoires were running in the thousands of dollars, so I thought this was a good compromise, it was solid wood and we would put it together ourselves. The armoire arrived in two large flat boxes - completely unassembled. There are 21 pieces of wood and 197 pieces of hardware. The instructions are all pictures (no words), but they were fairly easy to follow. The instructions show two men - believe me, you need two people to put this together. I also recommend an electric screwdriver and a lot of patience. It took two of us about 6 hours to assemble this. Perhaps my fault, I did not realize that the unit only came with 2 shelves. To order 2 more shelves was $$$. What the ?? That doubles the price of the armoire! My husband went to Home Depot & got them to cut 6 shelves out of quality plywood and stained them for $$. The wood knobs for the drawer and doors were scratched and looked terrible, so we bought metal ones that look much better. Finally, the lock does not fit. We don't care to lock the armoire so it's not a big deal. So overall, I am very pleased with the final result, but it took quite a bit of work to get there.
This Armoire is perfect for my needs. It matches the rest of the furniture, is well made and adds the extra hanging and drawer space I needed while being an attractive addition to the bedroom. I would highly recommend it!
