Great quality easy install was able to put in alone however it would be easier with two people. The one thing that would be better is if they added a few shelves in the kit just two would be nice (they are not included) however the product is a good one.

These are solidly built, on legs, solid enough for a 150 pound person to use the large one as a seat. The small one is pretty small, it reminds me of a small footstool/sewing kit I used to have. Still not sure what I am going to use it for. I thought the large one would be useful for toys, but now that it's here, they hold a great deal less than I thought they would. I suppose they will be hampers/seats in the bedroom. Might be good for someone who knits or crochets? The microsuede lining is very soft and would protect anything placed inside the container. The seattop is also quite padded/comfortable. Overall, not a great value for the pair; had they been two of the larger sized ones sold together, I would have said that the value was good.

I have bought three of these sytems for three different closets with very different uses (clothes, coats/shoes, and general storage). They have many different options for configuration. I did not put it together, but it took the handyman about 4-5 hours I think. It would be nice if you could add drawers or specialized storage units to it but otherwise it's great.

I echo all the rave reviews for this product. We had outrageous quotes from a few closet companies who were selling laminate products, not solid wood. So far we have outfitted our two daughters' closets and they look and function great. The first installation does take longer than subsequent installations, as expected. It does help to know your way around a toolbox, but it's not essential. We have two more closets to outfit and I am thrilled so far.

These shelves are a great quality product like the rest of the John Louis products but I think they were a bit pricey. The package comes with just 2 shelves so keep that in mind when you order.

i liked everything about the system unfortunately there were parts missing from both boxes that i ordered, i felt like someone took parts from the box so i was disappointed in that, when the installer came to put it together i had to send him home because all the parts were not in there, and then i had to wait for the missing parts to come but overall the product if good.

We have purchased three of these closet organizers. They are well made and easy to put together. It looks like it was done professionally and there is lots of space for storage that you do not get with a regular closet..

this closet system was as advertised. It was easy to put together, good directions, and easy to adjust to fit our closet. We had parts left over to use in a smaller closet as well. I would recommend this closet system.

remodeled our bathroom and closet. Provided tremendous storage and looks classy as heck. Will get this again for our next remodel in our new house.

I had a professional carpenter install this. I doubt I would have been able to do it myself. If you are handy with a drill, finding studs etc. I am sure you could do it. Looks great, very functional, and I personally like wood rather than most of these systems which are particle board.

the overstock customer service was excellent. I have contacted them twice to ask for missing parts and both times were handled professionally and promptly send the requir parts for me to finish the closet. The product was in very good quality. However, it is best to have a professional to install it. I would order 'John Louis' products again if I needed more organzing products. Very happy with this order.

Arrived so quickly. I had a regular handyman install. I ordered two. It did take several hours, and of course the first one took longer. Not really sure if there were pictures of configurations. Looks great.

The unit arrived within 10 days packaged in a single tall box and unless you slide it on the floor, it is difficult to handle alone. The packaging was adequate and the individual pieces of the product are a nice blond maple color. I have combined a tall utility base cabinet and drawer base cabinets with two Standard units along with 2 wooden drapery rods (purchased elsewhere) that were of the same color to fill in the spaces of this large walk-in closet. I also added a beautiful ottoman to the room and it came out better than expected. The materials are solid wood of good quality and I suggest hiring a handyman to assemble it. It is leaps and bounds more attractive than the wire closet units.

This is a high quality closet system, made entirely of wood (pine). All hardware is also excellent. I added 5 drawers and the glass doors to this base system, which eliminates the need for a separate dresser in the smallish bedroom. By comparison the closet is rather spacious and deep. Assembly is a fairly long and tedious process, particularly if you are adding accessories such as the drawers and doors which I added, and you should also consider the prep time to remove any existing closet hardware and repair any damage to the closet caused by this before you start. Total time with the accessories and demolition and prep was about two full work days for me. Mostly, with the exception of alignment of the drawers the assembly and installation process is fairly straight forward. It does require a fairly good collection of tools; I used (needed) a drill with various bits for pilot holes (I recommend that you use a pilot hole for every screw you use, for some this is a must). I also needed a powerfull power screw driver, you will be screwing things together for weeks otherwise. You also need levels and plumb lines. I used a table saw for custom cutting the shelving, though these could be done manually or with a circular saw. I also used a scissor jack, and piece of plywood to jack the box up on the wall and hold it as I fastened the box to the wall. Two helpers could have done this, but probably with somewhat less precision. A stud finder for locating the studs in your wall would certainly be a plus also. The base unit and the glass door accessory go together in a fairly straightforward fashion. The drawer units are somewhat more tedious to assemble and install. The cam locking mechanism that is used to assemble the drawers are somewhat fragile, its easy to break a cam/lock. Across the 5 drawers I was installing I had enough spare cam/locks to tolerate this breakage, but each drawer did not come with extras, it seemed hit or miss. One set of cam/lock holes was miss aligned, not bad considering the 30 to 40 sets of these in all the drawers, but this was not a serious problem, I replaced it with a simple wood screw (an appropriately sized drill bit with counter sink to counter sink the screw head and of course a screw also needed. Actual installation of the drawer rails and and drawer in the main box is in theory simple. The problem I encountered and one which I would guess is fairly common, is that the drawer rail system is very picky about the precise spacing between the rails, it really needs to be exactly 24" or the rail bind. Alas the box is 6 feet tall, and there is no intermediate bracing between the top and bottom to assure that the box sides are perfectly straight from top to bottom. The top and bottom pieces assure that the sides start off at the precise correct spacing, and the mount to the wall holds the back of the box with the correct alignment, but any slight warp in the box sides and cause the front of the box to be somewhat out of alignment with other than the precise side to side spacing required by the drawer side rails. (The instructions by the way do not exaggerate when they say the side to side measurements of the placement of the mounting hardware on the wall need to be very precise; they most certainly do). The wrap is not a cosmetic problem, the box is certainly aligned well enough that you cannot see any wrapping with the eye, but a 1/4 or an inch in the center of the box will cause binding in the drawer slides. I was able to accommodate this buy using shim washers between the box and the rails, not a particularly tedious adjustment, but of course you will need a bunch of washers to accomplish this. Fortunately, I my case, rummaging around in the shop produced enough suitable washers. Once installed, and aligned the drawer system is of high quality with full extension drawer slides, no complaint as to the quality. I did have one complaint, which is with respect to Overstock fulfillment of my order. The 8" drawer was clearly not new, it had been repackaged and returned by someone, who appeared to have been overwhelmed by the job of assembling the drawer. From the screw holes in the side of the drawer box (in the wrong place), it was apparent that he did not understand the assembly instructions, and he probably could not get the drawer installed. In any case he packaged most of the pieces in the box and returned them, and the used drawer was sent to me missing some of the pieces, fortunately nothing particularly critical, I was able to substitute for missing pieces with more rummaging around in the shop, or with extras from other drawers. There did not seem to be any cosmetic problems with the drawer so I just used it. Still did not expect to be shipped repackaged returned stuff to be sold as new, and it would have been a real pain if something critical had been missing. Bottom line this is a very nice system, once installed it looks great, and functions well. The installation is somewhat tedious though, and you do have to be light on your feet as you go along, particularly with drawers. This should probably not be attempted by novice DIY'ers, it takes a lot more than a Philips head screw driver to put this together,

I ordered two of these and stacked them for open storage for all my fun, casual hats and they work perfectly. They were an absolute breeze to assemble and now I can see all my hats and have easy access to them while still keeping them organized. These aren't solid wood or high-end but they still look good and work great in a closet.

To maximize our master closet space we installed one unit on the blank wall a year ago. Doubled our storage space and very sturdy - Love it! Just ordered a second to replace the original closet bar and shelf so the entire closet will match. Takes a little time and patience to install, but beautiful and strong. After a year our first unit is just as strong as the day installed.

Really love this closet system, solid wood and flexible

While disappointed in color and shape (I previously had the oak model from 5+ years earlier) it still is an attractvie system and fits my needs. I prefer it's look to the metal shelves. Not hard to install, just would go faster for someone who works DIY more consistently. Would recommend it to anyone who needs more storage space in their closet. Draw out several configurations to be sure to get the function you want.
