This item is out of stock.

Nice, solid dresser, especially for the price.
 from California,  Nov 8, 2012

This item arrived complete and with no damage. The item was packed very well. *I'd recommend the following tools: Flat-head and phillips-head screwdrivers, a hammer, and a pair of pliers. If you are patient and can operate a screwdriver (and maybe a hammer) than this dresser should not be as complicated to assemble as some of these reviews might suggest. However, it is definitely time consuming. I am good at building things, and putting this together took me just over three hours, using both ratcheting and electric screwdrivers to speed things up. It WAS NOT COMPLICATED, just a lot of separate parts to assemble. HERE ARE SOME TIPS FROM MY EXPERIENCE: 1. First and foremost: AVOID OVER-TIGHTENING ANY OF THE SCREWS OR CAM-LOCKS. Only use a power-screwdriver if you are careful not to over-tighten. (The cam locks especially are made from a lightweight aluminum, and will snap.) 2. If you are not familiar with installing a cam-lock/cam-bolt, you might want to find a video online that will walk you through it. They are VERY easy to work with, but the included instructions are very basic and a better explanation might help. 3. Most pieces are fitted together with the help of wooden dowels. I'd recommend using a hammer and FULLY inserting each dowel while following the instructions to make assembly easier. Also, you can use the extra dowel to "pre-stretch" the holes that that the dowels will fit into while assembling. Just tap the dowel in a little bit and then use pliers to carefully twist and pull the dowel back out. Helps a lot. 4. For more help fitting the pieces together with assembling, I used a thick paperback book and a hammer. Use the book to protect the wood from hammer-dents. Helps with getting a tight fit. Other than that, just make sure to take your time and read the directions carefully before starting each step. Good luck.

  • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Disappointingly, the color was more of a walnut-brown, with less of the cherry-red finish shown in the photo.
  • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Decent quality, although the cam locks provided are a bit cheap (which is what I assume the other reviewers were complaining about).
