Nice sturdy dresser. Clean finish. Use an en electric screwdriver, be careful. Do NOT use a drill, it strips the heads of screws, the wood and compromises the overall integrity, and look; of the unity.
I really like this dresser. The solid wood construction makes this dresser a bit sturdier than composite wood products. These days it's hard to find affordable solid wood products like this one. The dresser was relatively easy to assemble, but you can't use power tools because the wood would break and splinter. It took a few hours to put it together. The color is darker than the picture, but it's not black. It matches the rest of our espresso furniture. The drawers are not very deep, so I chose the 4-drawer version instead of the 3-drawer version. Overall, I liked the dresser enough to buy a second one.
I don't think you'd touch something in a furniture store for this price. It's pine, not MDF. It's not oak either, but for around $**? For a dresser? It does arrive 100% unassembled, so get out the wood glue and cordless driver, but if you're comfortable with your handiness, it goes together VERY easily. I was missing a drawer glide, but they sent a replacement within a week.
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.
