This cart is a nice addition to my kitchen. Provides much need extra counter and cabinet space. Easy to put together even with all the pieces. Granite top needs to be sealed however. Wish I would have known that before I set something oilly on it.

I purchased my first home in June 2012 and am in love with it; however my kitchen is small with limited storage and next to no counter space. After months of research, I decided on the create-a-cart in natural with the salt and pepper granite top. The cart matches my current cabinetry perfectly. I initially assembled the product with the casters on, but after placing the cart in my kitchen, I took them off. Without the casters, the cart looks like a original piece in my kitchen instead of an addition.

Screws missing, broken wood pieces (I had to glue together to avoid the hassle of returning a 200 lb package) and poor fitting. The drawers rub on the granit top, but of course you won't know this until after you have invested 3 hours into assembly. At that point you're screwed becasue there's no way that you will take it back apart and repack it for return!

I am 55 years young, grandmother and I put this cart together in about 4 hrs. I had a neighbor help me lift the top because it is too heavy for me alone. It came packaged so well and you can't say the free shipping didn't hurt. LOVE LOVE MY NEW KITCHEN CART !!!!!
After extensive shopping and review research I ordered this cart from O website. It arrived quickly well packed in 2 boxes. My husband assembled it quickly and without any problems, He is quite a perfectionist and was very impressed. It is beautiful, sturdy and rolls easily without effort. The granite top is beautiful and without flaw. Drawers and doors open smoothly with nice hardware. I could not be more pleased and look forward to many years of good use. The price was great compared to any retail store with better quality than many I looked at. I will shop Overstock.com as much as possible from now on.
I was very pleasantly surprised when the kitchen cart was delivered just 3 days after I ordered it. It is even nicer than it looks in the photo. I needed some extra counter space and we have a long bare recessed wall in our kitchen with nothing there. This cart is perfect for that area. The granite top is really nice. It is a great space saver and provides some much needed additional storage space. I really like it.
There were two heavy boxes left on the front porch. It was impossible to lift the heavier box, even with two people. My wife and I had to “cart wheel” the bigger box into the house. Having read other reviews, I thought it would be relatively easy to assemble the unit. For me, it was very difficult. I worked on it for three days. It took two of us to assemble the back, and then it was very difficult to line-up the pieces properly. (the large, thin plywood middle back had a slight crack, which was put to the inside) Finally, the main unit was finished. Then I opened the separate box labeled “drawer.” I assumed that they were already assembled. Wrong! Assembling the drawers was the hardest part! It was very difficult to get the pieces together properly and the screws wouldn’t screw all the way in, they are still a little loose. It was a little tricky to secure the granite top because you can’t see the holes for the bolts. It was very hard for my wife and I to lift the heavy top to the top of the unit. Both boxes were packed with care - very secure. The granite top was actually in wooden crate inside a box. There should have been some instructions on opening the crate, but there were none. Once assembled, the unit is very nice and of excellent quality.
I was happy was quality of wood. Also right length. Word of caution the marble table top is pretty heavy. I was little frustrated with directions wasn't to clear bit after rereading several times, and using little common sense I was able to complete.
