I was worried about shipping damage. The box had a couple of compressed areas showing that it had a hard landing at some time.
There is thick styrofoam at each end.
The parts were all intact, no damage.
The package is heavy.
It’s particle board construction, but with a nice dark veneer finish.
The pre-drilled holes and dimensions seem fairly precise. Some close-fitting items went together nicely.
The instructions imply to not use a power drill, only a Phillips screwdriver. I used a light electric screwdriver and I’m glad I did; assembly certainly would have taken longer.
Even though the paper back panel seems to be the only thing creating the stiffness; the unit didn’t waver nor seem unsteady when I loaded my clothing items into it.
I knew I was buying for budget instead of heirloom quality.
But this company does good work. I’d feel confident buying from them again.
We purchased the Headboard, 2 Nightstands and the Armoire all together for a spare bedroom. I was overly impressed with Wandhal's part descriptions, assembly procedures and the quality and look of each piece. They did a fantastic job of engineering and laying out all the parts for ease of assembly. Every hole that was pre-drilled was accurate. Wow was I surprised. All the pieces fit as designed. Take your time putting the pcs together and assemble the pcs in the room that they are going into. Each unit is pretty heavy. I removed all the pcs separately from each box and brought them to the bedroom on the 2nd floor of the house. Leave yourself enough room to assemble the unit. Know your own strength and do not over tighten. You may rip out the hole. One suggestion if you purchase the Armoire I used a Large Framing Square before I installed the large finished backing to make sure the unit was square before I started nailing. Great product take your time. I think you'll love as we do and the price was right. Thank you Amazon
As usual, Wandhal never lets me down! This is exactly as described, no broken parts, and not a single scratch on it. The color is exactly as is shown in the picture, and I absolutely love this.
