Rated 1 out of 5 by 400MO Total bummer
COMPLETELY agree with the reviewer that got something different than what was in the store.
I also purchased two of these with the intention of using them as nightstands. The two that showed up were average (at best), mirrored dressers -no weathered antiquing at all. The dresser in the store was MUCH more distressed. Seems like they sell average-looking pieces and each stores does their own "aging" to these. Buyer beware -not like the pictures of the floor models.

by viviglam NOT distressed like photo or in store.
I have been waiting to buy this. I finally did. I love the online photos and I have seen it in the stores. It's even better in the stores. It's even more distressed and hauntingly romantic in person at the Anthropologie stores.
What I got was so average looking. There was hardly any distressing and it looked like a plain mirrored dresser.
On the upside it came without damage and the drawers slid in and out easily. But it was so BORING to gaze upon.
I wanted to send it back as soon as the delivery guys unwrapped it. However I am too nice and didn't want them to have to load it back up.
Fortunately, Anthropologie customer service was very cool about it.
They are coming to pick it up and I will receive a full refund.
I am hesitant to order another one. If so, I would have to call and request a dresser to be as masterfully distressed as the ones on display in the stores.
I am leaving two stars because Anthro seems to have good customer service.
Otherwise I would leave one star for receiving something that is a mere shadow of what it is advertised to be.
Please see photos I submitted. You can see the difference!
I still recommend it on the off chance that you may not get a "lemon".
However, it was way WAY too expensive for something that came looking so mediocre. It needs to be a VERY special piece for the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CrysteenC Really cute
I wanted this for quite awhile but wasn't sure if I wanted to spend the money on it. But one day I just decided to buy it. Its really cute and has an antique look to it. But I'm not sure if I love it enough for the price, it is a bit pricey. But it does make a great accent to my room.
