Great Find; 4.5 star material
For starters I have been looking for a drawer for at least 2 weeks online at many different sites. The fact of the matter is that you will not find a very very very good drawer for cheap. I found this drawer in store for 99 dollars, and the floor model was sturdier drawer-wise than Sauder's other 99 dollar drawers. This drawer is made out of compressed wood, but happens to be quite refined so not many of the unfinished edges are jagged. It can handle 20 pounds per drawer and 30 pounds on top.
The insides are nicely finished but the bottoms are made of refined wood fibers. Which is just another fancy way to say fortified cardboard. HOWEVER, the drawer's design and bottom support ensure the drawers will not sag. Basically this is a 150 dollar drawer with a lower price tag. Even 139 is a good deal, but you may want to check out Ameriwood drawers or your local Walmart to see if they have THIS drawer for cheaper (they may be in the back storeroom, so ask an employee to look for it by giving them the skew number or UCP or whatever it's called).
Construction was easy, but I recommend having two people. Be gentle with it until you get the entire outer part stabilized. Also, if the drawers kind of stick when you are pushing them in or pulling them out you should try tightening the screws that hold on the gliders/sliders. Good stuff!
The finish is nice to look at and a bit tougher than Mainstays finishes, but you should get a mat or runner for the top anyway for added protection and flare.
Lastly, the drawers will have slight gaps between each other. THIS IS GOOD! It means the drawers will glide out easily without scuffing each other. I spent a good 10 minutes rearranging the 4 drawers to have as little gaps as possible. It looks wonderful!
My only beef is with the handle/knobs for the drawers. They are nice and made of wood but I would've preferred a standard handle. But for the price I paid, I can get over it! In the picture with the open drawer that plastic folder is about 12 inches long, so there's enough room for 3 folded stacks of clothes. I can fit two thick insulated hoodies, two medium hoodies, and a beach hoodie in one drawer without cramming them in. I suggest getting Ameriwood 6 drawer dresser if you don't have any closet to use, though.TundraBlitz
It’s an ok piece of furniture
Dresser is not the best quality. It feels like I bump into it with something, it will easily make a dent or mark. I bought it secondhand. There’s chips of missing wood and scratches. It’s perfect for a child’s room but for me, it does the job done until I can find one that suits me better.Butterfly
I was really excited to get this dresser for my daughter. Unfortunately, it arrived damaged and it was already half put together before we noticed. Thankfully its only a small chip, but I'm extremely disappointed. Additionally, the directions are not very easy to read and it is rather difficult to assemble.Danielle
My daughter's room.
I bought this chest of drawers for my daughter's room. It's a very cute piece of furniture and pretty good quality for the price. My husband put it together fairly quickly, which surprised me based off of some of the reviews. He probably would've gotten it done faster if he wasn't binge watching "The Flash". Lol! I changed out the drawer pulls to make it a little more girly and cute. That took it up another notch! Great buy!Sbooker80
Quality, Affordable Dresser
This item is a great piece of furniture. As with every "assemble it yourself" piece of furniture I have bought that was made by Sauder woodworking, this unit is fantastic. All you do is follow the directions carefully and in about an hour and a half you have a great looking and very sturdy dresser.
You just can't beat the value for the price.papajobear
