Assembly punctured hole through "solid" wood...CassiReally frustrated after using nearly an entire day to put this together. The instructions themselves are fine to follow -- we expect the amount of steps and the time it takes to assemble. What is not OK for 200 bucks is the inefficiency / lack of quality of the materials provided. The worst part is when we flipped the dresser over and found that a tiny, blunt wood dowel used for attaching 2 pieces had punctured THROUGH the side of the dresser. It should not be possible for that to happen; the finish of the dresser on that side is ruined. Not to mention the flimsiness of the nails provided to attach the back, several holes and parts that didn't quite align, and there was a hole completely missing from one piece. I do like the dresser now that it is built, but it is damaged and these things really should not happen.
Good product TheresaBought same dressers in the past. Plenty of space.
Very niceDeidreThe instructions included were of no help so we looked up a step by step video on YouTube and once we put it together it was all worth it! I looked to buy another today but they were sold out! I will be diligently searching to buy another unit soon!
Total Disappointment BhargaviI was expecting this would be a two tone ( black-brown ), but after opening the boxes its pure black color. which is total disappointing.
Ikea this is like miss guiding customers. Didn't expect this from Ikea.
Much improved!DanielGood value in this solid piece. And with the brace holding the drawer together front-to-back and supporting the center of the drawer-bottom, it is much more stable than in years past.
Disappointed - Throwing it awayDedreSome connector cam screws in the front (the wood slats between the draws) WON'T STAY TIGHT. Three slats are sliding left to right. So the frame is no longer flush as it was when 1st assembled (you can see the gap with screw & dowel). Now the drawers won't go or stay on track because the track is 2/10" away from the frame. Also, one short screw won't get tight on one side of a draw track and it is not stripped. The hole is bigger than the screw; making that draw useless. I am so frustrated. Paid two people to put it together because of all the pieces in 3 heavy boxes. I even helped so I know first hand. I was literally go back and having to retighten the cams after it was put together. I bought it yesterday and ready to throw it away today. I wasted all that money and time. [IKEA had to send 2 separate assemblers & still messed up my daughters dresser set; that's why I didn't hire them and they were cheaper].
Glad I chose this dresserVirginiaTook me months to finally find in stock. It’s a great dresser. Solid and classic style. The drawers are sturdy and well made. They’re deep and spacious and glide open and close very easily. My husband put it together and it seemed to go smoothly as long as you pace yourself. I would buy again and recommend to a friend.
Nice dresserChuckLove it. Very well made and stylish
Tall DresserCandaceAll Hemnes furniture is sturdy. Bought one for my grand-daughter a few years ago. I just moved and bought myself 2 more!
Glue-y and sticky panels/materialsKarenWe bought the same dresser about 5 years ago and loved it so much we decided to get another in a different color. Delivery was great! But then we opened the box and the panels were so sticky with residue that we had to frequently wash our hands while assembling. We also noticed that the actual material was more thin and I was unable to fully attach a few parts due to misaligned holes. Weeks later I am still hoping that the glue smell will subside and wondering if I can gently sand some of the sticky-ness off. Oh IKEA I used to enjoy your products and now I am leery of obvious major quality issues!
A bit difficult to putSophiaA bit difficult to put together
Super sturdy and perfect colorCherylI really like the Hemnes line of furniture. The pieces are all classic and well-made. I cannot comment about putting it together because I did hire someone to do it.
Love the GreyRachelDurable and beautiful

Beautiful chest of drawersRyanAbsolutely love the color, and works great in my bedroom.
Nice AdditionKarenThe dresser/chest is a nice addition to the crib that was purchased about six years ago. It's nice to have lined drawers for baby things.
Love itAnitaIt’s perfect for my clothes and loved the color and the style of the dresser
Hard to put togetherWilliamThe parts were not well marked out in the directions to put it together. You had to guess what the parts were from the pictures.
