Pros

Different customers had different things to say about this item. It appears exactly as pictured and is a beautiful, sturdy piece of furniture for the price. As with everything, you get what your pay for, so considering how cheap this item, you will hopefully be adequately pleased with its quality. The drawers are not exceptionally deep, but it gets the job done for a normal amount of clothing. The instructions are easy to follow and the pieces go together nicely. Overall, it should take about 1.5 hours or so to assemble it.

If you are looking for a premium item, then you will need to pay a premium price, but if you are looking for the perfect combination of price and quality, this dresser is highly recommended. It fits different room styles, is a decent size, and is surprisingly sturdy for the price.

Some users mentioned that the directions were difficult to follow, so just make sure to take your time and double check that you’re screwing everything the right way, otherwise it could be difficult to correct things afterwards. Overall, this bed provides great value, and is beautiful and easy to put together.

The box it is delivered in can be somewhat heavy, so it might be a good idea to have someone with you on delivery day. Assembly is easy even for one person. Total assembly time, if you include cleaning time and loading clothing for storage, is probably close to 3 hours. All hardware and tools required for assembly are provided, except for basic items that everyone pretty much has in their kitchen junk drawer. The finish is delicate, but for the price, it really looks high class. The drawers are big, they slide easily, and they close silently, leading some buyers to be surprised at the quality for the price.

Cons

On the other side of things, a number of customers had a range of issues with this item. Some of them had a very, very hard time putting it together, since there are 28 steps to build it, and over 200 pieces to assemble (including nuts, bolts, panels, sliders, and handles). Since there are so many interconnecting parts, when fully assembled it may not be sturdy and can look slightly crooked. There is also the occasional nick or scuff on the panels, so watch out for delivery damage as well. Further, if you do go for this item, make sure you have an electric drill handy for assembly, otherwise it will be quite difficult.

Another customer states that after less than a week of use, their top drawer started falling apart and the rail became bent. Although it was in use in a child’s room, and although the look of the grey finish and its style is great, it just didn’t last enough. The pros of being pretty sturdy and having the drawers open and close very smoothly, making it easy even for toddlers to open it and close it, are somewhat offset by the item quickly falling apart after average to light use.

Finally, sometimes the drawers are misaligned and wobbly when sliding in and out. The hardware for the backs of the drawer doesn’t always keep them on and may have to be glued. Wayfair is sure to ship a replacement to you if needed, and with so many good ratings for this dresser, you’d think it would be fine, but it’s not a quality piece to begin with.

Conclusion

The bottom line for this item is that it looks nice, it has a great deal of storage space, it delivers quickly, and it is backed by Wayfair’s high-level customer care. Further, it is modestly priced and is made in Canada. With a great 5-year warranty, you can rest easy that you aren’t risking anything and can return any damaged goods if they do not meet your expectations, and you can even avail useful payment options as well as protection coverage. And since it is made by a renowned manufacturer, there is a lot of value to that as well.

However, the quality of this item is slightly poor. Quality issues are somewhat expected for items in the sub-$300 price range, however, so it should come as no surprise if this item starts opening at the seams, so to speak, after you start using it, although it should be mentioned here that that is in no way the standard expectation for this item. It has great overall reviews and has left many buyers comfortably satisfied with their purchase, so if this is something that fits your budget and if you are looking for something with a clean and straightforward look, this item will do the job for you.

On the other hand, if you want a sturdy, long-term item, perhaps look for something else to buy, or shop around for other items from South Shore. You can even look in the same collection for similar yet better-rated items.
