This cabinet was just perfect for behind my door in bedroom. I used it for spare medicines,odds and ends, cookbooks, and house and garden books, and miscellaneous items. It works just perfectly as a small bookcase and place to store items that can be hidden from view. The drawer is great for keeping coupons and correspondence . It serves as a filing cabinet and a closed bookcase. This would have been very difficult to find in a furniture store. Thank you Overstock for carrying just the right piece and providing measurements to insure the right fit.
***** furniture is better than this. This thing makes Ikea furniture look like Restoration Hardware quality. The laminate was peeling off the sides as soon as we took it out of the box! My husband put it together, he is quite handy and quite the perfectionist. When put together, it leans forward a good 1.5" inches -- we have to trim down the back legs just to make this piece of garbage level. It's beyond rickety. I didn't have very high expectations for $*** and I know just shoes are going in here... but I definitely expected a little better than this.
Assembly went well, bit I was missing one of the screws which made it a pain till I found another. The legs were completely uneven, but a couple felt pads solved the problem. The cabinets smell like some type of packing material and did take 2 weeks to dissipate. One the bright side, they look fantastic in the space and easily hold my size 11 shoes. You won't get the max number of shoes they say, but easily hold enough for our mud room. We also lined the shelves and the drawer with a colorful liner to brighten things up.
For the quality of the wood, the price is a little high. The answer in the Q&A says it should fit 25-30 shoes but it definitely does not. Unless you are putting in kids shoes. I wear men's 9-9.5 and other shoes include women's sizes 6-9. We could only fit 3 and a half pairs on each shelf. That means17.5 pairs of shoes.
I knew I wasn't getting the greatest quality, but real wood was also double the price. This cabinet is however highly functional and will just require that you put it together carefully (my 5 year old and I did it together)!! It looks nice, fits lots of shoes and I can now keep matches together. I am so. Happy I got this. Wish I had it a year ago.
Poor instruction, poor package, had chips on the product, luckily the chips on back side. Until now, the cabinet still had bad smell from paint or chemical ( I bought it at 6/19/13). I was very disappointed, I don't know what should I do about it.
