I'm not sure why there are a lot of complaints about this drawer chest. I had mine for a year and some change and it still functions pretty well... you just have to be gentle with the drawers. I'm a single female and I was able to put the drawer chest together in less than 3 hours by myself (it felt empowering, lol). If you have ALOT OF CLOTHES, this drawer is NOT for you.
This is a quality piece of furniture and finished so that it's easy to clean. The drawers are roomy and felt lined, nice touch! The mirror really looks nice with the dresser.
To be honest, I bought the nightstand first to go in a guest bedroom and was highly impressed with how well packaged it came shipped as well as with the quality of the furniture for the price, and the fact that I was actually getting something made of pine versus rubberwood (sometimes called parawood). I owned a dining set made of rubberwood and swore I'd never buy anything again made from old rubber trees that no longer produce rubber sap. (My chair rungs started breaking.) This dresser arrived today and weighed 238 lbs. It is sturdy and heavy! Again, it was extremely well packaged with absolutely no damage at all. You do have to attach the bottom feet and a middle support foot to the underside of the bottom. (You will need an extra set of hands to help turn the dresser over.) All four corners underneath are braced with a heavy-duty metal bracket. The feet were very easy to attach. All drawer parts are completely made of wood with the exception of side metal drawer glides. The top two drawers of the dresser are lined in felt. The color of the dresser is not a stark white, but rather a creamy white. I love the 2 side cabinet spaces; they'll be great for stacking pairs of folded jeans or other bulky items. No, this is not top-of-the-line furniture, but it will definitely hold up for a LONG time and is well worth the price Overstock offers it for. Shipping was very fast, too.
This is definitely a get what you par for. The dresser itself it stylish, easy to put together. Yes, it's cheap material, but what do we expect for the cost. My challenge is this is all particle board. What they don't tell you is there aren't any bottom fittings to protect your floor. Plus, there is a ton of wood hitting the floor. I've bought a roll of felt to protect my wood floors. Other then that, the dresser was what I anticipated it to be.
