Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by hermittse Reasonable priced
Comparing the price with any other 'containers', this is a much better deal. However, the craftsmanship is horrible. A piece came with a huge 'mended crack', (even though the crack was covered with some sort of material, you can easily see it). Home Decorators Collections' staff was excellent, just one phone call and the replacement came. She even offered to send it overnight. (However, we don't need it immediately and the piece is already on sale.) This Co. is good, just hope that their merchandise are as good as their staff.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Seally Manufacturer Damage
The product arrived with hairline "cracks" on 3 pieces. These cracks did not happen during shipping however - the box arrived completely undamaged. So, I could only assume these were a manufacturing defect. Luckily, the worst one is on the back and not visible being against the wall. I did not return it because of time constraints but I would not recommend ordering this unless you have the time to send individual pieces back for replacement.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Grandfather Seemed fine to me
I thought the chest was pretty easy to assemble, I did it by myself with no help. I just took my time and everything went together just as it should...I put the spring hinge on backwards, but just backed out the screws and all was well. I had not problems with cracked wood or broken hardware. I put some dish soap on the screws and they glided in easily, I also put a dab of wood glue on the dowels and I think that helped too. This was bought as a toy chest and should be great for that purpose

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MarshaR Looks better in the picture
Some of the furniture panels were nicked and one even looked warped from water damage. Several of the predrilled holes were missing making assembly a real pain. Also several of the pieces used to assemble the product actually snapped and broke. It would cost too much to return so I just kept it. It's being used as extra storage in my finished basement for blankets. It looks somewhat decent down there and is doing it's job. All in all I would say this piece is not worth the price and shouldn't be placed somewhere where people can see it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RiverHeron Good value, looks great.
Very happy with this purchase, especially for the price. It went together easily with no problems. This piece is a little lighter-weight than it looks, but should be plenty sturdy for storing blankets.
Kudos to whoever put the packing together. The shipment survived a three-train collision/derailment, and the box arrived looking totally trashed. I was not very hopeful when I saw the condition of the box, but the packaging absorbed the impacts and all pieces were intact and unblemished.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dmac15310 Poor Quality
Mom always said, "If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anythin at all" but this is one time I feel obligated to say something. Sorry Mom! First this is a pretty item, nice color, hinges work great, if you leave lid up it will stay., however, this took me forever to put together, for the following reasons: Holes for nails were missing in some spots.
Holes not dug properly so the silver hinges would not fit in the holes.
Silver hinges that the screws go into kept falling out and would not turn as they should.
Item had scratches and a large gash on the
front of it. I can pretty much out anything together and expected this to go relatively quickly. I finally had to call for hubby's help and we both struggled with it for a few hours, yes I said hours due to the materials not working properly.
This would be a great price if the quality was better, however, as it stands right now we can't even move it for fear that it will fall apart.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by twbts cheaply made
We were disappointed when the chest arrived as it is lightweight and very cheap-looking. The assembly went ok, but the pilot holes were drilled too close to the edge of the lid, and when we attached it, the wood split. Had to request a replacement, which HDC was very good about providing. I got such a good price on the chest that I didn't return it. However, I have very low expectations about performance...this thing will not last!
