It arrived from Overstock assembled, but had to put the mirror on which was easily done. It's a nice piece. Doesn't have soft close doors and the material is good, just not very heavy, but adequately sturdy. I like the brushed silver nobs and catch holds. It's nice for the price.
The item arrived in a few boxes but they were packaged nicely inside in Styrofoam. All pieces and parts where there, and there was an extra screw given for each kind. I started putting this together on a Friday night and only got the frame done before I got tired. I finished up the next morning and it took me about 3 hours by myself. Some of the diagrams get a little confusing (and I ended up putting the drawer tracks on the opposite side - which was an easy fix, although highly annoying). I do have to comment that the wooden dowels to connect the pieces BREAK easily so there was one piece that I couldn't use it on - luckily it wasn't anything for support so I didn't mind too much. Also, one of the legs had the teeth on the screw fused together so it wouldn't screw on to the base. I tried to get creative with a small saw and tried to make it work. After about 20 minutes of frustration I was going to call OS to get a replacement part, but I gave it one last try and it finally screwed in (albeit a little warped). I also had the same issue with this dresser as I did with the nightstand - the backing piece that gets screwed into the back doesn't align perfectly - so be careful when you screw it is as it may damaged the wood on the inside. This happened in a few spots, but since it is "out of sight" (inside) I didn't mind at all. The top piece also had what looked like scratches on it - but I think it's just an imperfection in the wood itself as there is no divet of a surface scratch. Other than my assembly issues, I really love this dresser, especially the mid-century mod legs... cannot say that enough. I'm probably going to switch out the knobs to a brushed-nickel knob to give it more pop.
After looking around at local furniture stores I found most bargain pieces to be of extremely poor quality. Especially with dressers or chests you have to watch out for the drawer mechanism. This EE5DD is not only a great buy, but also very well made. Manufactured in Malaysia both, the dresser, as well as its drawers and hardware, are excellent. The only critique is that none of the pieces had any labels. The assmebly was still very easy. I replaced the dark drawer knobs with satin brushed nickel ones, and it immediately matched the rest of my furniture.
Perfect size and look for a powder room cabinet. Would look better with polished brass/gold knobs rather than the brushed nickel it comes with. But that was easy enough to switch out.
