My partner and I just combined households, so we decided to keep it fair and buy new bedroom furniture only. When we saw this dresser, we both knew immediately that we had to have it. It absolutely is the center piece for our room, so we don't regret our decision at all! Packaging: This thing arrives in 4 big, heavy boxes, so be prepared to have work space to build it! Despite the mountain of boxes and an unhappy delivery guy, the packaging is great. Everything was securely wrapped and padded, so we didn't run into any issues with damaged or missing components. There is a lot of cardboard and even more styrofoam, so build this beast right before trash pickup or you'll be sitting in a heap of packaging for days. Construction: The dresser is solid! The actual drawers are wood (and beautiful, by the way) and the rest of the dresser is MDF, as described. Some reviewers mentioned the color tone of the wood drawers being darker than pictured, but I only found that to be the case when looking at one of the photos. If you scroll through, most of the photos are pretty accurate. If you have this in a poorly lit room or dark space, then you might want to consider something with lighter wood drawers. For us, the colors were perfect. Directions/Installation: Another reviewer mentioned that this took practically 6 hours to put together. It didn't take THAT long, but give yourself a good chunk of time. There are a TON of pieces for this dresser. I recommend an elevated work surface, like a table, so you aren't leaning over board for hours trying to screw it all together. Also, learn from our mistakes and don't install the glides upside down. As expected, it won't work. No matter how many times you try to put it in the dresser. We were delirious at that point. I promise we really are pretty good at putting stuff together. The directions were pretty straight forward once you got the hang of it. The booklet is longer than the bible, so don't freak out when you see it. Read the directions. Just do it. Drawer size: Plenty of space! The bottom drawers are bigger than expected and I'm so happy with them. The top little ones work well for underwear, despite being kind of small. The square drawer looks nice, but is a little awkward. We're using it for belts and random accessories, because we'd need a whole other dresser to store all of our socks. If you have a sock collection, consider the matching set. Side note: the white can mark pretty easily, so if you set stuff on your dresser, you should probably use some sort of tray or linen. I don't even know what we set on there temporarily, but it left a light grey mark that I couldn't completely get rid of. Overall: We love this dresser! My only regret is that we don't have room (or money) left for the other dresser and nightstand.
Simple good quality item for the price. It is real white dresser, it was no problem to put it together even though its so many steps. Just keep in mind this peace is not for a tall people.
