This is a beautiful dresser and seems pretty sturdy. My boyfriend was able to put it together within 4-5 hrs (taking a few breaks in-between). He stated the pieces weren't labeled clearly and made it a little more difficult than it should be. The reason I only gave this 3 stars is because there is a very large scratch on the top of the dresser! There was a crayon included to color in the scratches, but this scratch really makes me mad..it is very noticeable (even after being colored in). There was also a decent crack in the wood on one of the pieces but luckily it wasn't through the entire piece and is on the inside so no one will notice. The only reason we didn't return it is because the box was destroyed when he was opening it and it wasn't worth taking it apart to ship back. It's going in our 2 yr olds' bedroom, so chances are it will be scratched up by him eventually anyways. I would be very happy with this dresser if there wasn't such a large scratch in an obvious spot!
I absolutely love the look of this piece. It was the exact look I was going for. However, the assembly was very involved. It took at several hours to complete with two people putting it together. Two of the holes for the dowels did not line up on the top frame of the dresser, so we had to assemble it without the dowels... it did not appear to be a huge issue.
I like this dresser; assembly was fairly easy, and it looks really nice in our guest house. The drawer quality is not the best...thicker paneling-type material with a wood grain finish. After assembly, the top drawer is difficult to open...too tight of a fit.
