I bought this to store miscellaneous items in my house in without having to hunt everywhere for it. My son moved home and he's using it for a dresser right now. It actually works pretty good for what I needed it for to begin with and the temporary use as the dresser also.
We bought this for my daughter dorm room, and well it is not real sturdy but was light and my daughter actually put it together. This would be good for a vacation home or college apartment or dorm room, but I would not purchase for a piece of furniture for my personal home.
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!
