It's great! However, it took us about 2 days to put it together. We got help on the 2nd day. It's a very heavy item when all put together. The "legs" at the base are supposed to be stuck on with two-sided tape they provide but it doesn't hold up. When we tried to move the dresser, after several hours of letting it sit (so the tape would adhere stronger), the legs came off.
The dresser, as others have noted, is not red-toned at all as the pic depicts. It's truly tobacco, sorta like walnut which I prefer anyway. The handles are a matte chrome-like finish. The instructions are simple enough, though in a state of fatigue at night and assembling alone, I did have issues with the the railings/tracks onto the inner panels. Be sure to have someone help with assembly. Tip: Be VERY careful screwing the tracks onto the panels properly. If a screw is not flush, your drawers will not slide in! I learned this the hard way. Now I'm fighting with the thing to re-screw about 3 panels! Another issue I had is one of the legs had a humongous pre-drilled hole that cannot accommodate the screw. I'm still waiting on Overstock to replace it. I managed to rig it with wood glue and wood chips until O-stock ships the replacement. Though the drawer is pleasing to the eye and seems solid built, I don't feel it's as sturdy as I'd feel comfortable with. The wood is rubberwood--kinda soft and extremely prone to scratches (I already have 2). The rear panel of the dresser is particle board, which doesn't really bother me, but so are the bottoms of the 6 drawers which may be an issue down the line with constant use and weight of clothing. Overall, this dresser is good looking, but I will no longer purchase furniture online if I cannot judge it in person first.
As others have said, this is a tedious piece to put together, but not difficult. The pieces are clearly marked and the instructions are easy to follow. I have the 6-drawer chest and the nightstands, which go perfectly with the Riva platform bed. (I would have gotten the Aristo bedframe, but didn't want a boxspring.) On the advice of others, I lined the drawers in the chest. I will be purchasing the 4-drawer chest when I get a good coupon or it goes on sale, and I think instead of that time-consuming (and expensive) method, I will try spraying it with a matte sealer from the craft store next time. Anyway, the set is gorgeous...better than anything I saw at the local furniture stores.
