Black 9 Drawer Dresser

I bought two of these for my boys room. They both arrived with several knobs stripped out and difficult for my husband ( who is very handy) to fix, and with the top drawer fronts cracked and broken off the drawer body, however, the problem did not appear to have happened in shipping because the outside of the dressers were not messed up in those areas and the packaging boxes were also intact. Overstock agreed to send new top drawers, but what arrived instead were just new drawer fronts, which didn't help me. In the time it took to call back and forth about getting replacement drawers, I decided I didn't like the entire dressers enough to keep - while they were very attractive, and made much better than ikea and the like furniture, the drawer bottoms were not quite as thick as I'd like, although much better than you'll usually find at the price point, and the underside of the drawer openings were not well sanded, leaving them scratching and pulling on clothes as the drawers opened and shut, which happened every time, due to the fact that the drawers don't actually hold much compared to the size of the piece. I felt around inside and realized that there is a lot of wasted space between the side walls and drawers sides, and between the top and bottom of each successive drawer. While they are very tall dressers, each large drawer was not large enough to accommodate more than, maybe, 9 pair of very flatly folded size 6 or size 10 boys slacks and jeans, for example, and the narrower drawers at the top would barely open just holding my boys underwear and socks (and they don't have a crazy amount by any means.) They did not hold near as much per drawer as the Eurway dressers they were meant to replace. I think these dressers would be best used for a baby's items, in a guest room or as a TV stand. I do give Overstock a great deal of credit for giving me time to decide how to proceed, and then picking up and returning the dressers without any hassle at all. They were just picked up two days ago, and they told me to expect a full refund soon.
