This was an inexpensive piece, so I didn't expect it to be top quality. We had to wait for a replacement side of the bookcase that had a flaw; however, the part arrived in a short time and we were able to fix the problem.
I was upset when I got it due to the fact that it was not assembled by it went together very easy. Two pieces were damaged in the delivery and I received the two pieces about 2 weeks later. All the parts were included and every hole and nail lined up perfectly.

Engineered to last. Though the assembly takes some attention to detail, it is evident the design and engineering of assembly pieces were built to last and provide a solid piece of bedding. I became more appreciative of the assembly task as the pieces came together and felt the extra time invested in the assembly was worth the effort. My compliments to the design team at Prepac Furniture. Best of all, the storage units underneath will eliminate the need for a bureau or two! This was exactly the intent of our purchase of the unit and it came to fruition. The headboard we bought along with the bed unit is a great addition and will provide additional space for books, eyeglasses, etc. as well as a platform for the right lamps. No need for a side bed/lamp table. The platform for the mattress is solid and very well supported to the framing. This piece should last for years to come! We will return to Prepac Furniture. The white finish and appearance is a great match for the cottage/beach feel we were seeking.
I have a weekend home and I don't want to spend high $$$ for bedroom furniture. I've been shopping for nightstands with a height less than 22 inches and price less than $100 each. I saw these and purchased 2 because they looked perfect and the positive reviews (thank you!). I'm not a handy person, but the instructions were so clear and simple, it was like following a recipe. I assembled one, which took me a couple of hours, but that's due to my lack of skill not the product. Anyway, it looks wonderful and I am very pleased with my purchase. Don't hesitate on this one!
"Wall hutch" is made of inexpensive soft particle board. The mounting requires screws to extend from the wall into the particle board to support it. The wood is so soft that the unit comes easily off the wall. Loaded with books it is hazardous. We had a professional carpenter come to check and he agrees.
Looks exactly like the website-nice & heavy-took about 45 mins 2 put together-definitely can fit 18 pr. shoes-fits perfectly under window as I had intended-with a cushion on top, provides a comfortable seat for one of my grandchildren-this fits into my bedroom extremely well-I do not have a lot of space
The final product is nice when you finally get it put together..assembly instructions are a bit sketchy and none of the components are marked so you have a hard time identifying them. it took my daughter and i 4 1/2 hours to assemble. one of the pegs that attached the top piece broke throug the vanier and ruined the looks of the top. i cannot repair it..more caution or the holes need to be drilled not as deep. otherwise i would not reccomend some novice buying this product unless they have a lot of skills..
The shelves are very nice, that I am considering buying two more sets. I placed them in the den with children's toys on them. Dolls, doll clothes,Barbies, small dolls etc. Top shelves, are games, magnets, and other toys with small pieces' The maple wood is just the perfect color, and the shelves are very sturdy. I am very pleased with my purchase.
I bought the 6 drawer dresser and the 7 drawer tall chest. The parts are not marked, so you need to take your time and sort them out. This will save time later! I would not recommend using these for kid's rooms, as the laminate tops are very thin. But if you use for just one adult and don't abuse them, they should last you a long time.
The only thing that could have made it perfect is if they had numbered the pieces. I really didn't have a problem but I can see were it might be for some people. It just took a little longer to make sure what pieces were what, etc. It did go together very well and all holes were matched up really good. After I did the first one, I was able to put the second one much faster. The quality was very good, I was impressed with this. Overall, I am really happy with this produ t>
I'd heard some pretty awful things about Prepac but I have to say that I ended up being pretty happy with the results. I mean for the price it's great! The quality is better than other put together furniture I've ordered. Of course there is always a thing or two that could be changed such as the board that covers the back matching the whole piece. I don't have it hidden behind some other piece of furniture & so I'm having to get some wood stain to cover the back side. The drawer could have better casters - they're kind of sticky instead of smooth. Buyers need to also make sure to align the drawers up before finalizing any of the drawers guides - which by the way they tell you to put on at the wrong time - at least in my opinion.
Very convenient. This was easy to put together, looks good, and seems sturdy. The cubbies are just a little small, so it's a little difficult to put some adult size shoes in. Nevertheless, I'm very happy with the purchase.
