Well, I have 2 of them falling apart.  They just weren't made very sturdy and I was wondering if anyone has a dresser that is made well. 

Thanks for any tips!

 I had 2 of them too, and mine fell apart also.  I wish I knew of one that was better made

I don't mine always fall apart within a couple of months. You really end up spending less just buying a sturdy one.

My husband had one made of particle board or something.  I was glad to trash it when we had our first apartment!  I have a pretty all wood, sturdy bedroom set.  I am so glad I had soooo many clothes in my early 20's that I opted for two dressers.  I hate when things don't match anyway :)  My daughter has a used all wood dresser, and my son-to-be has an older wood dresser that will be replaced eventually.  At least it's REAL wood and sturdy... just ugly!! I don't buy any non-wooden furnitire, it's crap.

It really is, and not good for kids to have either. they trash them so quickly.

 We got one at Target and so far it has held up pretty well.

We have a wood dresser, that I hated when we got it, but it was cheap because it was unfinished, and we finished it, and I still hate it, but it is sturdy. and still fine.

I agree that a sturdy dresser is the way to go. We have one in my youngets son's room and I don't think that thing will ever break!

 That is so true!  I'm going to go to a furniture store and buy a couple this weekend.  I'm tired of wasting $40 on junk!

Well, my husband fixed the dressers because I went to the furniture store (clearance section) and they didn't seem that much better.
