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.
This was easy to put together. The color of the drawers were slightly darker than shown in the picture, but it still worked for what I had in mind. It will work well as an accent piece or a nightstand. It wasn't level on the bottom so it has a slight wobble, but hopefully when it is weighted down with stuff it would hold itself steady. I put mine on a rug and the wobble seems nill.
I bought this a while back so I'm able to give a review on how it holds up which is pretty good, actually. The baskets are a little more green than is shown in the photo and they are not all even. They look hand made so maybe that's the idea but I'd prefer them to be more uniform. My main problem is that the texture of the wood is unfinished. It's stained a weathered gray look but no top coat so it's hard to clean and scratches easily. Now that I've had this a while, I'm thinking I might touch up the nicks with some gray stain and then add a matte poly sealant so that I can more easily wipe it down when it gets dusty. Otherwise is a nice purchase for the price.
I am very pleased with the storage units that I purchased. There was only 1 area that caused a little concern. The top of each unit was somewhat curved with the middle raised slightly. Did not complain because we were able to get the tops on with only a little more difficulty. They serve my reason for selecting them so I saw no reason to return!!
It looks very cheap and it was so guess the old adage "you get what you pay for" is appropriate in this case. Want to return it to upgrade; I am usually very satisfied with your products and will reorder once my credit for return is posted.
