Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UpNorthMichigan Hawthorne Chest 3+2
A very nice chest when completed. Goes together nicely. It does require a couple of hours to do so. But the finished product is ver solid as it is completely screwed together with pocket screws. The only minor criticism I have is that the wood knobs (which are of the same pine as the chest) do not have a pre-drilled center hole. As per the instructions, I drove the screws in without pre-drilling. The first 7 went in fine but the last three split and needed to be replaced. No problem as replacements were sent quickly. But looking back, I wish that I would have pre-drilled them. Hopefully, the manufacturer will do so, but if not, I recommend that you do.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by samsmom2005 Never buy this!
It looks great in the picture! It comes in a flat box. Ok so we have to assemble it no big deal. But my husband took it out of the box and was checking to make sure all of the parts were there and over looked a really big hand print in the paint (we bought the white one)on one of the drawers that we did not find until we were putting the drawers together which was the last thing we did. One of the drawers split when we screwed in the screw. The paint joints on the side of the dresser are cracked. We ended up patching a lot and painting it to make it work for our grandaugter. We paid a lot for some wood, screws and dowels.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DesignDiva1452 Difficult to assemble, looks nice
I was discouraged at first when the product arrived 3 days late with several damaged pieces...the box was torn and appeared to be haphazardly taped together. I called customer service to explain my dismay and was very pleased with the customer service rep. She was able to send me new pieces to replace the damaged ones and they arrived in a weeks time. Assembly was difficult, so I wouldn't recommend it for someone who isn't handy. Drawers are also shallow so don't expect to store a ton. Other than that, the piece looks great in my master and for the price I do believe it was worth it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jolin652 could not assemble, but nice finish
This package shipped on time and got to me on time. When I opened it up and started layout out the parts, I realized I had 4 left drawer sides and 2 right drawer sides. Due to the assembly method, this made it impossible to put together the 3rd drawer. I have ordered the entire hawthorne bedroom set and every single item had a part missing, bad, incorrect pilot hole etc. It has been a frustrating process of which I am tired of and will no longer be purchasing from Home Decorators.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JonT Good value
I bought this for my 24 year old daughter because of the appearance and price. She did most of it herself. The assembly was not extremely difficult, but took a couple of hours and parts of it required a second person. Compared with other products I have bought from Ikea which required assembly, the workmanship was quite good. Holes were well drilled and pieces lined up properly. The only problem was that one knob cracked while being screwed in. I assume the company will replace it. I should add that we used a power screwdriver which made things much easier.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by skdfwieing Hawthorne 3+2 White - junk
I've purchase several items from Home Decorators and ordered the Hawthorne 3+2 in white. It is by far the lowest quality item I've purchased. It is not made from "sturdy, solid wood" as is stated in the description. Namely the frame itself was made from MDF. MDF is a pressed wood product which cracks easily. I ordered two of these units and the frame on one arrived with a crack in the frame and the other frame cracked during assembly. I would not by it again. Stick to the stained wood pieces - it is harder to hide sub-standard materials.

Oh, this is SO pretty! I just love it! It's light and airy looking and fits beautifully in my bedroom -- brightens up the space!
Assembly was easy -- the instructions were excellent and easy to follow. Also, fun to put together and a great sense of satisfaction when it was done. All my neighbors dropped by to admire it -- very impressed!
A small problem when one of the wooden pieces started to split at the screw-in point, but when it was assembled, all this was perfectly well reinforced by the rest of the structure -- so No Big Deal!
I put colored glass (Ok...plastic) drawer pulls on it and it looks very merry --
Just adorable and completely worth it!
Thanks, Home Decorators -- I have several pieces from you and they are all excellent.

This chest does not meet my standards for well built furniture. It is REALLY hard to put together so that everything sits properly. It just feels really cheap to me, and I find it too hard, once it is put together and out of the box, to return.
