I ordered this piece along with the 5 drawer version as well and now my office is clean and organized. The furniture went together very easy and fits with the other furniture I ordered to match this piece from overstock. The storage drawer bottoms take a bit of time to settle flat and it helps if you put a book on the drawer bottom for some time when you have finished assembling everything. This is light-weight but very solid as the frame is made from solid wood. This was a nice bonus!! Holds a ton of stuff and makes my office a lot less cluttered.

My husband thinks this was a waste of money. That said, it does what I wanted it to do - holds paperback books neatly against a small wall in my computer office. It was a real pain to put together, even though it only involved Allen screws. The Allen wrench was not long enough, I had to use my own. Then I had to have my husband do it, the holes were not lined up on every piece. The baskets were better than I expected. The overall color of the frame is a darker grey than shown. The green baskets look nice with it. The frame does not have a polycoating on it at all, you may want to spray one on yourself to make it look more finished, the wood is very "raw" looking.
I have to say this unit is not too bad for the money, I got it for about 55 bucks which is not an excellent vaule considering the product is not excellent quality. This unit is a reasonable size and it really was not hard to put together but it is missing the holes on the front bottom panel. I bought two and both were missing the same holes. just need to have someone drill tiny holes to attach the panel. I haven't managed to get my someone to do that yet but the unit functions fine without them. It is not something I would put a heavy item on top of or even some that I cared if it got knocked over and broken. Would not recommend to people with children as I think they would pull it over trying to open the drawers. It is a weird gray not gray and not green may a camouflaged green would describe it best.
These were the look that I wanted and they do provide some storage space I needed. The quality was less than I was expecting. I ordered 3 of these. In trying to assemble the first one, most of the pre-drilled holes did not line up very well making it difficult to assemble. The second on had some damage to the top piece of the unit. The third one was OK.
