Need help to assemble but you are not told the bottom panniers don't come with dresser. You have to buy them separately for an additional *** Didn't appreciate it.
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.
Let me tell you, it's no fun putting this one together and what fun it is to discover halfway through that they didn't give you four of the necessary pieces to put it all the way together and then left out a few of the tools and hardware they said were included, i.e. allen wrench and 20 small nails. So if you have lots of time and love this sort of thing, then perhaps this is your dream dresser. I feel I could have picked something up nicer and used in the same price range on craigslist. The "metal" part on the bottom is a joke, it's poorly painted pieces of wood. Once my other slats arrive, I will not be attaching the bottom "metal part", prefer the height and look without. I have really bad overstock luck recently it seems. Damaged item, defective item, now this item with missing essential parts. These experiences will make me reconsider buying cheap furniture online again. Not worth my time or the hassle.
