Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by csny Drawer guides are off
This is a nice little dresser, and exactly the size and appearance I was looking for. And, it can be annoying to put these things together, but I was up for the challenge. One huge frustration: The drawer guides on one side were 1/2 inch higher than on the other side, which means the drawers don't fit correctly and are unusable. The drawer guides come already attached (staple gunned in on the inside of each side wall). I didn't feel like taking apart what I had done already to send it back, so ultimately pried each guide off the internal wall myself, removed all of the staples, remeasured, and nailed them in at the correct heights. At least an extra 45 minutes of rather annoying work that just shouldn't have been required. Disappointing and poor quality assurance on this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LaurieattheLake Well made but a zillion pieces
I shopped on line for quite a while before deciding on this chest and was under the impression that the chest came assembled. When it arrived I was dismayed to see how many pieces there were. Luckily my husband is an engineer and very methodical so he was able to put it together. Even he said "there were alot of pieces in that chest." But it looks great and feels very sturdy. The drawers pull out smoothly. I think I will be very happy with it.

This chest was very difficult too assemble and it took about 6 hours to do so.. It went together poorly. Drawers are difficult to close and open. They don't fit properly.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sanderfeld Disappointed
This is the second bedroom chest of drawers I've purchased from Home Decorators. The first was much larger, but oddly, much more easy to assemble. This smaller chest was a nightmare to put together---and I got the handyman from my building to help me!--and when it was completed, a couple of the drawers were sticking and it was tilting slightly to one side. (Again, the first item I purchased turned out perfectly so I've done this with success before.) This newer product seemed more cheaply made, much harder to assemble (the assembly estimate in the instructions was a joke) and, overall, a big disappointment. I won't make a similar purchase again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrsJanea Neat lil dresser
I bought this dresser for a room that I've put together as my "dressing room" since my master closet is very tiny and I realized even with a closet, I need more storage space. When I found this dresser on Home Decorators, I knew it was perfect, and what a great price!
Assembly said 30 minutes for 2 people but I think my friend and I spent a good hour and a half. We found that it wasn't hard but allot of screws, and since I didn't have the proper tools to use my electric drill, so we had to manually screw each one but we had fun none the less. I'm extremely pleased with how it fits my room, and my clothes!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NSJH Cannot recommend this item
This item looked nice online but was not of good quality in terms of the wood itself, especially the drawers. It took a tremendous amount of time to assemble and we had to use pipe clamps to attach the drawer backs so they would line up squarely. None of the areas to use screws were pre-drilled. I could not recommend this item to anyone and would not purchase other Hawthorne items if they are "pre-built" the same way. I hope I will get some practical use out of the item and it looks just OK, low quality and does not match the quality of other items in my dining room. I have previously ordered many other items from HD and had no trouble at all building them. This was a great dissapointment.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cg81381 nice piece, tough assembly
I first want to state that I love Home Decorators and continue to enjoy many great purchases from this site! I jus placed another order for window treatments today! But...
This particular dresser was just annoying. The final product looks pretty nice but the instructions didn't match the parts, a piece for one of the drawers arrived broken and my poor husband spent hours with a power drill forcing the screws together because things weren't perfectly lined up. For this item - the effort just isn't worth it. Go for a similar pre-assembled piece for the same price Gothic Cabinet Craft.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 2thebeach Complicated assembly!
This dresser comes is many parts and was overwhelming to think about the assembly. Once we finally gained the confidence to begin the assembly, we were short parts and had to put the pile aside and wait for more parts to be delivered. Happy with the end result but if I had known the assembly was going to be challenging, I would not have bought it.
