When I read it was constructed of wood, I expected it to be sturdy... it was not. Made of particle board, it is flimsy and I am seriously wishing I had put my money into a more expensive, sturdier unit. If I knew it was made of particle board I would have skipped over it. Particle board is recycled wood, compressed in a way that makes it unpaintable when it gets scratched and shelves like this DO get scxratches. I would say it is basically a piece of JUNK!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color matched up fine with what I saw on the website. It was why it got two stars.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The unit is very poor quality... very tiippy. I had to put something under the front feet to tip it backwards slightly so it would stay against the wall and not tip forward.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The picture was fine but it was NOT constructed of "wood". It is constructed of "particle board"
The cabinet is classy, and beautiful. I bought one and loved it so much I purchased another. They're great. It looks nice, went together easily, I just wish it weren't made so cheaply. I think tho, that it's just the way EVERYTHING is today.
This shelf is just what I needed to display some collectables that were handed down to me by my mother. I was a little intimidated when I first opened the box because it does require assembly, and there were quite a few pieces to put together. However, once I actually looked at the directions, it took me less than 5 minutes to assemble it. It seems sturdy, and is just the right size so it can go almost anywhere. The finish was also nicely done. I'm thinking about getting a second one for additional items.
