I was so nervous to receive this item because I knew it had to be assembled and my boyfriend and I are not handy people, if you know what I mean. This dresser was easy to assembly and the finished product was study! Overall, we are very happy with our purchase. Assembly took approximately 3 hours. The directions were thorough and concise. I would definitely recommend this dresser!
When I took out most of the pieces I noticed there was considerable damage to the inside of the front drawers. The wood was fraying so to speak. I just hope they last. There were a lot of scratches and parts that didnt have the black finish however they send a furniture marker in black to coer them and it works well. I had a theme going since this furniture was for my daughter and I purchased crystal pulls which make the dresser look elegant. Once I finished building the dresser it looked really nice dispite the scratches and fraying. I would recommend putting something on top of the dresser to avoid further scratching.
Okay, I purchased this piece of furniture for my son's room and now that it is together it looks absolutely fantastic. Quite possibly better than the pictures give credit for. It fit in the space provided perfectly and it really was an upgrade from the junky old stand-in that I was using as a dresser. That said, I started putting this thing together at about 4pm and finally finished it about 9pm. Now, to be fair, I had to take a break to make dinner for two starving kids who were being neglected while I worked on it and my back was screaming for respite from being stooped over it. All said and done, it was a constructive way to spend a rainy day. It looks fantastic but do not believe the instructions when it says 'only 90 minutes'. In all fairness however, the pieces did go together as said.
