I assembled this drawer chest after assembling the Simple Living Cassie Mid-Century Night Stand and boy, knowing what to expect after going through the night stand process is a plus! The install is exactly the same as the night stand counterpart, but with 4 drawers instead of 2. I've assembled furnitures for as long as I remember and I assemble them in record speed. This furniture took me 2 hours --- WITH a power drill! Without a power drill you're expecting at least 3 hours for the seasoned assembler. More for newbs. Like the Simple Living Cassie Mid-Century Night Stand, the instructions are INACCURATE. Be mindful when putting the drawer sliding rails onto the side of the drawer (pieces 1 and 2). What the instructions tell you to do in Step 5 is incorrect. Instead, SWAP out the sliding rails from piece 1 to 2 and vice versa. If you follow the instructions, you will end up with UPSIDE DOWN sliding rails, meaning you will have no functional drawers, or if you try to install the drawers into the incorrectly installed rails, you can only have TWO drawers in odd positions -- exactly like reviewer Kariee B's photos. I was able to spot this out quickly and disassemble the pieces just right before the wood glue was setting in! If the wood glue set in before you can take the pieces apart, you are SCREWED and I recommend calling the manufacturer for replacement parts due to inaccurate instructions on their part. The funny thing is, the exact incorrect instructions regarding the sliding rails were provided for the Simple Living Cassie Mid-Century Night Stand. Overall, it's a gorgeous looking furniture. CHEAP materials for sure, but overall presentation is not bad. 4 stars.
I was a little leary about buying this sight unseen. I can't tell you how happy I am with this furniture! First, the bedroom set looks exactly as pictured. The construction is superb. Heavy, heavy furniture. I love it and would highly recommend this furniture. Oh, and it came packaged so well and securely that the pieces appeared impossible to damage in transit. Happily, the set came almost completely assembled....secure the mirror to the dresser, screw on the feet and you are good to go! 😀
