Similar experience as other review, but a little better. I agree that it was not easy to put together, especially considering the simplicity of the design. The doors lined up on my piece and the cabinet stands straight, but there were other problems. The cabinet came out of the box with scratches already on the wood in places. Damage on one part of cabinet was cleverly hidden by a stick-on letter designating which piece it was. Drilled holes were incorrect for the magnetic metal pieces on the doors. One knob doesn't fit well with any of the matching screws so the knob doesn't attach securely. The back of the cabinet is a faux wood piece of cardboard, and to attach it you have to drill your own holes in the cabinet. One guide hole in the back cardboard lined up so near the edge of the wood frame that drilling or screwing in a hole there resulted in splitting the wood. Also, the instructions weren't clear about assembly and I made the error of assembling the center shelf backwards (the piece holding the magnets for securing the doors in front) and had the back screwed on before I realized my mistake... had to disassemble the thing and turn it around. The result is now three screw holes visible in the outside front of the cabinet. I guess with this piece you get what you pay for.
Love this cabinet. I looked for a long time at various sites for the color and size. This is a beautiful brown wood and exactly the size I needed to put necessities in my guest bathroom. Took my time putting together because of the other reviews and I had no problems putting everything together in the right order. I used a small handheld screwdriver drill. It did have a smell at first but went away after awhile. Excellent value.
This cabinet was not easy to assemble nor was it correctly made. The screw holes were off alignment and crooked in a few places where I had to drill "new" holes. The doors are not the same size so one hangs lower than the other which causes a gap at the top. Due to the unaligned screw holes (which there are many screws to place) the cabinet wobbles and does not stand straight. I was rather disappointed with this cabinet and unfortunately I also bought the hanging shelf that matches.
Beautiful piece! I am still trying to get rid of the smell, it's a "finish smell"I think! I've had it 2 weeks and still the smell... Assembly instructions were a bit vauge, took way longer than expected to assemble.

I found the cabinet to be just right for my bathroom space under a window. I can hide all my odds and ends and the drawer is small but hides all my 40 lipsticks and lipgloss. The drawer is secured in a rather cleaver way, but I wouldn't put anything that has much weight in it. This is another find that worked out rather well for me. Overstocked save time, energy and money.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was very good as in the picture. It is very rich and warm.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The porduct does not look cheap. The quality is good.

I was really leery of purchasing this item with some of the other reviews. But, we had no problems putting it together. I must say the smell lasted a week but, is now gone. All in all it is perfect to store towels (folded right) and it really dresses up my bathroom. Great purchase
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
- How is the quality of the product? Very good
- Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Yes
Purchased this for our office restroom for storage. Yes, this is a little hard to assemble as all the holes were not pre-drilled but wasn't that hard to make my own. Took a little bit of time to assemble but not the worst thing I have had put together. I love the outcome and the color was true to the advertised picture which means alot as this was my second option (first purchase from another online company) and wish it would have been my first.
I purchased this to use as a small liquor cabinet in my vacation condo. I needed a narrow width. It took quite a while to assemble and the doors do not quite meet exactly but it works well and looks fine. The espresso finish matches my other furniture.
I purchased this item to go along with the toilet spacesaver. It is the perfect size for my little Manhattan bathroom. I use it to store my hairdryer/curling iron in the drawer and in the cabinet I store my toilet paper. Holds everything well and is a very attractive piece. My only complaint is the drawer sticks a little. If you're looking for something to store bath towels, this cupboard is too small. It will probably hold hand towels and face cloths well, but nothing too large as it's only 10" deep.
I bought this particular cabinet as it is the right height and the color looked like it would match the existing vanity cabinet. It arrived in just a few days and was well packaged. All of the pieces were there. The assembly of it is taking us longer than expected. We are taking a frustration break as I write this. The instructions are pictures. We have built and assembled many items over the last 30 years of marriage and do not consider ourselves to be novices but I have the feeling that the shelves are all in backwards and we have to dissassemble it and start again. However, I can easily see that it is going to look great when we finally get it right. The depth of the item is not as deep as I would have hoped. I wanted to store extra towels in there but will have to think about how I can creatively fold them to get them in. All in all I am pleased with it but wouldn't give it a 5 because of the terrible instructions (from China, of course). Have patience!
Happy with this cabinet although I was a little reluctant after reading prior reviews. The cabinet it just as described. It was clearly labeled and all parts were seperated and we easily assembled it in less than one hour. A small crack in the wood to the inside of storage bin so it is not noticeable. Fits a small nook in the bathroom and matches the vanity perfectly. It is a small cabinet but holds the towels which is why I ordered it. Glad to have found it but it probably is a little overpriced for its size. Overall I am happy with our new cabinet.
We wanted something nice looking, but not for an expensive price. This looked like it fit that. I was impressed with the service of Overstock with how quickly it was taken care of and sent, but not completely satisfied with the quality. It is cheaper looking than I thought, and definitely cheaply made. It will work, but not as excited as I thought I'd be. What do you expect I guess.
Assembling this cabinet was easy, although I had to glue a couple of parts that were broken. Too expensive for the quality. Knobs fall out easily and one door does not close well. Drawer is hard to open. I bougth this piece of furniture in April 2009 and wish the product had already had some reviews at that time... I would have never bought it.
