CONS: * color more black than espresso * terribly messy to unpack - had to do it over tub, with lots of dust, weird fibers and styrofoam ball fragments * gaps in fit in places PROS: * nice style and design * all parts labeled by letter or number * instructions easy to follow * sturdy, useful cabinet for the bathroom
It is black - it is much darker than the picture. I purchased it to store sweaters and it's not bad. The boards are a bit thin - and we had to really be very careful when tightening screws so that it didn't crack. It's a good size. I don't know if it would be able to handle books or anything very heavy.
This is the first time I felt the quality of the product was less than average. It was bad when I took the stickers off with the lettering on them it left marks and when I tried rubbing them out it left them permanet. Not quite the quality I am use to getting. I would rate it a c- at best.
This cabinet was pretty hard to put together. Used some wood glue on the dowels to add stablility. The photo is a little misleading; the inside of the cabinet is very dark. Anything you put in there will not really show up very well. Got a small LCD light and mounted it on the top shelf, but the light doesn't reach the other two shelves. Looks pretty cheap, but I actually took some sandpaper and distressed it a bit and that definitely helped. This truly is more black than brown. Overall, it looks OK, but I feel it was overpriced. This is the first time I've been less than 100% satisfied with an Overstock purchase.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? This truly is more black than "expresso, " but that is one reason it appealed to me as my dining room furniture is black.
- How is the quality of the product? sturdy enough, but looks somewhat "cheap"
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? The reviews will tell you more about this item than the description
Buying it on Overstock was easy and painless. Good experience. The quality of the product is quite average. I agree with other reviews which say: - Very strong toxic smell inside the cabinet (may be glue) - Very fragile material - Almost overpriced for the average quality It does look nice from a distance. From close, you can see that it is average quality. It works for what I need it for right now, and I'm lazy to take it apart and ship it back, but I will "not" recommend it.
You get what you pay for. Very thin veneers on the wood that scratch easily. Some of my pieces came scratched from rubbing against other pieces in the packaging. Pieces didn't fit snuggly when put together, so piece is wobbly.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Yes
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality was poor. The pieces don't fit snuggly so the legs are uneven. Very thin veneers and many pieces came with superficial scratches because of packaging. Cheap cost of unit shows in the quality.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate.
This product is very cheaply constructed. The parts they sent for example; screws for the handles was too short. Structure very weak, and color is closer to black. I thought it would fit in with my furniture from Ashley Home Furnishings but de-class the room. I kept it only because I hate returns and this O.com website is not return friendly. I found a hidden corner and stuck it in. Pay a little more for better quality merchandise.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The item was much darker/almost black
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very cheap, poor quality, screws to small
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Too little information/inaccurate
Overall, this cabinet looks good and would be suitable for holding relatively small items. We have our DVDs and our son's video games inside the cabinet and it works great for that. The top piece of the cabinet came scratched in the package, but we put a phone an other stuff on top of it - not worth the hassle of sending back for another one. Set-up of the cabinet was relatively easy compared to other cabinets I've put together - partly because of the small size and partly good design. This cabinet is exactly what it should be - ok quality, good looks, good price - perfect for a family with kids who doesn't want to buy expensive furniture that will end up chewed by the dog and stained by the kids' juice!
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
- How is the quality of the product? ok, but good for the price
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
This cabinet arrived very quickly. I cannot comment on the assembly. My husband had it assembled when I got home from work. He had no complaints. It fits perfectly in my kitchen and I am very pleased with it. The color is black - which is what I wanted. It's not the highest quality, but for the price I think it is a great deal.
I love the cabinet it's nice and sturdy. It would be nice if this manufacture made the matching space saver cabinet that stands over the back of the toilet that would perfect. I've been checking to see if I can find something that match or come close to it.
I bought 1 to store my wine glasses and I loved it so much I ordered another to store my placemats and napkins. Now I have beautiful cabinets and all my things at hand to set my table. Thank you Overstocked. My house is full of items from your site. All I have to do is order and it is at my front door. Being older makes it the best way to buy heavy items. Sue H
Cabinet is a little smaller than photo would suggest. I liked the ease of assembly, but left front door of cabinet became slightly warped after just a couple days. I had to install 3 extra metal washers to get the magnet to keep the door closed.
I bought this cabinet for bathroom storage and it works great. The only thing I would do differently is use wood glue when assembling. I think it would be stronger than just using the toggles. Not difficult to put together, and it looks nice. Expresso is the color but it it black enough to use in a black/white color scheme.
The size and color is as described. comes fully disassembled, cheap materials, hardware does not seat tight, one of the side panel was actually cracked, I opted not to return the unit and avoid the hassle and just touch up the panel. used additional fasteners to make a bit sturdier than designed.
