When the cabinet arrived it was pretty scratched up, and the glass was chipped in two places. I was also under the impression I was purchasing the cabinet (per the add I purchased from) for **.**. My total was *** Over all, I was "okay" with the product, but I do have some touch ups to do for aesthetics.
If you have experience putting together Ikea furniture, this cabinet will be a snap. I bought two of them and put them both together without assistance. The pieces were labeled well, there were plenty of hardware pieces. One of the cabinets, the doors don't meet in the middle, about 1/8 inch or more gap. The other one, the magnet for closing the doors feels weak. They are not in a prominent place in my house, so I don't care about quality or lack of quality. They are perfect for my extra pantry space.
This item looked so much better in the online pictures, we gave it a try and ordered it. When we opened the box we knew it was a poorly made item but still assemble it and when it was done, it took over an hour, the cabinet was falling apart. The same night we disassable it and put it back in the box and returned it the second day. Sorry, this is the only item we returned from Overstock.
I really liked the style of this cabinet - for $*** I should have known better. The ordering process was easy and the cabinet arrived faster than estimated. I unpacked the parts and pieces and found everything labeled wonderfully and instructions were easy enough to follow. The side panels were broken though. I contacted overstock and they quickly responded. Instead of sending my just the panels that I needed they sent a whole new cabinet. This seemed like overkill but as soon as it arrived I understood why. This was the "same" cabinet" but they were actually different - the final result would look more or less the same but the hardware was different sizes, different hole placements etc... The new cabinet had some damage but not nearly as bad as the first and I went ahead and attempted to put it together. I go all the way to the doors only to realize that they had supplied 2 left doors instead of a left and a right...and I couldn't use the doors from the original order because they were just a little too different...boo. Overstock supplied UPS label for return and full credit. I get that this was a cheap cabinet but it's unfortunate that I couldn't even get the right pieces to put it together.
I have mixed feelings about this cabinet. After assembling it, I was very pleased with the appearance. I bought two Classique Espresso cabinets. I began to assemble this, but the directions were hard to follow. Assembled the smaller cabinet first and from the clear directions, was able to figure out how to assemble the two door cabinet. This cabinet was older model than the one door. The holes were out of alignment and some too small. It took the better part of a morning to complete it. After assembling, the cabinet looked great. When reading this review, keep in mind that this is the first time I ever assembled furniture and that may have made it more difficult for me to figure out the directions.
With every piece we put together the phrase was "man the seems like poor craftsmanship"... The doors still don't line up correctly and to be reconfigured so many times just to get the doors to connect correctly to the magnet. Upon delivery the front doors were scratched and the tools pack was open and the screws/ nuts/ bolts were scattered everywhere. The item is a lot smaller then I thought it would be, hoping to return this item... Although it is more affordable then some, not worth it!
