We had done a large scale family room remodel a couple of years ago and I have been looking for the perfect piece to finish off the last empty spot. I didn't want to spend a bundle but also didn't want a cheap piece. I decided to take a chance on this piece and I am glad that I did! It arrived quickly and was packaged very securely, my husband only had to put the legs on which took all of 5 minutes. Then my family stood around and oohed and aahed over it. It is a very pretty blue and the antiquing/distressing doesn't look fake or over the top. The attention to details and the beveled curves of this piece make it look much higher end than it is. The drawers slide nicely and the hardware is upscale. I didn't think this piece was a steal but definitely would have paid about $XXX more if I had bought it in a high end furniture store. It is made in China and although the description includes MDF, which I loathe, the chest doesn't give off any odor and is made very solid. The color looked exactly the same as the photo displayed on my monitor. I hope that this review helps with your decision!
