Pros

For a better idea of how this drawer actually turns out after ordering, we’ve collected a few anecdotes from actual customers. One buyer started by saying this item comes with lots of moving pieces, and it takes a while to assemble and even after put together. They had to take the 6 drawer dresser apart to tighten up the drawer pieces and then put everything back together again. The instructions don’t note this, but the drawers are specifically meant for the right or left side of the unit. So if you put the wrong dresser drawer on the wrong side of the dresser, it doesn’t slide in/out of the tracks like it should.

This may have been obvious to other people, but after 2-3 hours of putting these dressers together, one customer had trouble figuring out what was wrong with their final piece. It looked nice with the matching 5-drawer chest, and although the wood is not quality and is very heavy, for the price it is exactly what you might expect given the price. It is a really good product for 2-3 years. The color options are unique and they go nicely with black/grey accents, if you have those in your bedroom.

Another customer had an interesting story to share. They ordered this dresser and the shipping process was very good. Wayfair had a great price. Unfortunately, the handling aspect somewhere along the line was very rough. The product was delivered with some damage but appeared to be on the inside of the side panels so they figured they could live with it. When the dresser was almost assembled, one person noticed a large chip on the dresser top. They called South Shore directly and got a wonderful customer service representative. She was very knowledgeable about the product and what the customer would need to get the dresser assembled. The replacement parts came so they did in fact finish the assembly quickly. Unfortunately, when the assembly was complete, the drawers just didn’t fit right. They had read a review about this very thing when looking at this product, and eventually it turned out that the installation tracks were on the wrong side of things, and it was easy to correct the issue and the drawers then fit perfectly. Overall an excellent product and assembly goes well if you pay attention to the instructions.

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.

In short, this dresser is a great fit for most rooms, the colors work well with different accents and hues, and it is fairly sturdy for DIY furniture. Overall, you’ll be happy with this dresser, shipping is quick, replacements if any are sent promptly, and the final product is pretty sturdy and looks very nice.

Cons

Next up we have product issues and shortcomings. One customer was sent a dresser with scratches. This is usually not a big deal, especially if you place something like a TV over the top of the item, but after a month of owning it, the customer in question became extremely dissatisfied with the quality. They said that the drawers cannot hold much at all, otherwise the bottom falls out. Second, the front and back of the drawers may start separating and may not screw back in easily. Third, the drawer pulls are not flush with the actual face of the drawer no matter how tightly or precisely placed over the surface it is. Also, the drawers are not flushed against the frame when closed. They may look crooked and as if they are coming off on certain sides. Poor quality on the whole.

One customer got the weathered oak. They said it was pretty but that the material overall was way too flimsy. The holes did not align and the material did not hold the screws well. Even the shorter screws misaligned, and a few of the longer ones broke.

Conclusion

In summary, this item is a little pricey considering what you are getting for dishing out over $250 items on a DIY dresser. It comes in nice colors and can pretty quickly and easily be assembled, but quality issues with the drawer tracks, with nicked and scratched dresser parts ruining the overall look of the item, and with various issues related to poor construction and bad assembly, this is perhaps a little too expensive for something that only has 4 stars on a 5-star scale across over 1,000 reviewers. Our recommendation is to buy something with better reviews at a lower price point, or perhaps wait for a discount or promo to kick in for this item.

In closing, we do not accept money, gifts or samples from furniture companies in exchange for special consideration in the preparation of our reviews.
