We decided to buy this rather than a real heavy duty wood one simply due to the fact it won't be a forever piece of furniture in our home. However with that being said, it is a much sturdier and thicker product than I expected. Many reviews talk about assembly, and yes, it took a couple of hours, but by following the directions, I was able to have it together in right at two hours while being 8 months pregnant! Would recommend this changing table!
We recently purchased this dresser. What we received was called "Leila" and not the "Ariel" which we had ordered (and is pictured). It appears to be the exact same item, however. It is a nice piece of "assemble yourself" furniture, but unlike the previous "Mikaila" product we had purchased just weeks before - we found that the insides of these drawers are not stained to match the cherry finish on the rest of the cabinet (our Mikaila combo dresser and 6-drawer dresser were stained throughout). The only complaint we have is that the placement of the stickers is disturbing. Most of the stickers are coded for assembly purposes - but they do occasionally end up on the surface that is visible once assembled. Also - there is a large sticker on the back (inside) portion of the changing safety bar that is not only difficult to remove without scratching the surface of the wood, but it is annoying to look at. A different adhesive should be used to make removal easier. The quality is very good (much higher quality than expected), and assembly easy (with the proper tools required - but not all included). I have been very satisfied with my recent Mikaila products and would recommend them.
