The Altra Storage Unit -5 drawer was easy to assemble.The color is very versatile, warm. The style is contemporary. The price was right. It adds a flair to my family room decor. I use the light weight drawers for cds, utility stuff like scotch tape, pens, scissors & hole punchers. Be creative!
The only reason I rate this as good and not excellent is because when you pull out the drawers and then push them back in they get caught and don't fully go back in. I needed this unit for a catch all in the dining room and it works perfect. There is plenty of space.
I bought this tower to store my make up, perfumes, hair products because I don't have a lot of storage options in my bathroom and I set up in my walk in closet to create more space for my husband. It is very cute and keeps the area clutter free. The drawers are big enough to hold my hot rollers, hair dryer, straightening iron, brushes. I am very pleased with how sturdy it is. It would work also if someone wanted to store wash cloths, hand towels, and full towels if needed.
This is a green hue, not grey!!! I was shocked by the quality. I did assemble, it was not that difficult, and it did seem a bit more sturdy. The baskets are really poor quality, and I hope this storage unit holds up as well as it looks. It would look even better if the color was grey!! I would not spend the money I did on balsa wood!
The baskets are cheaply made and the bottoms do not stay inside the frame of the basket. The frame is nice and sturdy, but the basket design needs to be changed. After all, you buy baskets to hold items, not retrieve them out of the drawer in the next level.
I have to say that I was excited to find the storage unit as I have been looking for months and the price was great but I was very unhappy with the unit it was missing parts so we couldn't put it together and the baskets were already pulling apart so I ended up returning the storage unit. I have to say that overstock.com has some of the best customer service people I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with thank you
It looks OK but seems kind of flimsy and was missing a key part that keeps the shelves from falling down once they are inside the chest.
