Shipping was fast, it actually arrived a day early, and it was packaged well. I'll warn you this review will probably be more about putting it together than looks/functionality because taking latter into consideration, its a 5 star product. The one star deduction comes from the fact that the instructions are a bit vague in places and it is tricky to do with one person. I will agree with other reviews that it is complicated to assemble in the early stages. once you get things rolling, it comes together quickly. If I had it to do over again, that wouldn't deter me from purchasing this cart. That being said, don't let that intimidate you and miss out on a great piece of furniture. I had just a regular screwdriver and it took me about 2.5 hours from start to finish. I recommend taking inventory and counting everything before getting started. Do take care with some of the thinner pieces as I can see how they could be damaged while putting this together. You'll need a lot of floor space to lay everything out and it would be wise to put down a towel or blanket to avoid scratching the wood pieces. The cam lock screws are tricky to tighten and I have had a few fall out when moving the cart after I put it together. My dad helped me better secure them. As far as the wine rack shelves go, I would recommend having a second set of hands to get all of the pieces aligned and, as other reviewers mentioned, glue them for additional stability. Overall, those were the main issues I had. When its all said and done, I'm very happy with the finished product and have gotten many compliments on it in the short time I've had it. Mine was also perfect front and back and sits in the middle of my kitchen to break up the open concept kitchen/dining room.

After looking for months, I'm pleased with this purchase which were delivered speedily! As long as one is careful to follow the printed directions, the cabinet came together quiet easily. It has plenty of storage space...I like the clean, simple concept. One flaw in design is the lack of divider between the side & center cabinet doors. As the center cabinet doors open out, they tend to rub against the edge of the outside doors.

Wood quality is nice and assembly was easy. Nice size for our cottage kitchen with open concept to living area. Works well for cocktails, breakfast and conversation with guests when we're preparing dinner. Love the color coordination too. Would recommend.

The assembly was perfomed by someone who had a good concept to putting things together; the specs did not provide directions and instructions; the front panel knob openings were uneven, and the inside middle shelf chipped. A new panel was sent to me, i may request a replacement middle shelf as well. Overall the cabinet is what i expected in terms of size, color, and appearance, and durability. It will serve my intended purposes in the kitchen area.

The price is very reasonable and if I was willing to drill into my door to secure the rack better, it might be perfect, but with just using the door hooks, it slides around when the door is opened and closed, so it's constantly crooked. Thankfully it hasn't lost any items out of it yet. I'll be trying to find a rack that might be a bit sturdier now that I've discovered this as a concept.

I use this cart almost daily due to a small open kitchen without adequate counter work space. So I love the concept, but I gave it a 3 for a couple reasons. First, the quality. The granite is not the best piece, scrap most likely, as it has divots and fillers also it doesn't line up evenly over the cart where the back sticks out more than the front and it looks odd when not in use placed against the wall; the doors don't line up; the drawer does not slide well; the material is on the cheaper side and does not have a good feel. Second, design issues. The bottom shelf has a lip so sliding heavy items in and out is NOT and option (the only time I have seen a lip on a shelf is in a camper to prevent items from falling out); the drawer is only deep enough to store basically flat utensils singly. I chose not to use the spice rack or the towel holder due to size constraints so I cannot comment on them.

This pantry is just beautiful & looks wonderful in my open concept kitchen/dining area. I needed extra storage space & this works out great. I love the distressed look & the blackish color. I have black appliances, oak cupboards, tan countertops & creme colored flooring. This pantry is a nice contrast to the light colors & pulls the black appliance colors out. I would highly recommend this product.

I'm thrilled with this kitchen work center! The quality is excellent; it doesn't look like a do-it-yourself project, but like a nice butcher block work table. It fits perfectly at the end of the counter in my tiny kitchen, and the addition of a drawer, shelves, and counter space really expands the usable area of my kitchen. I chose the highest position for the middle shelf, which leaves room (just over 16 inches height) for a stand mixer and a juicer on the bottom shelf; very convenient for these tall appliances. Assembly was not at all bad, considering that I'm a not-too-terribly handy person. It took some patience to figure out the directions, and the help of a friend with the heavy pieces, but it wasn't hard, and I was very pleased to have all the parts, with the holes predrilled in exactly the right places. Care instructions are included, and the company's website has helpful assembly videos. There are certainly less expensive options out there, but you do get what you pay for, and I'm very pleased with the quality. Appearance is important to me, especially with an open concept living/kitchen area, and this looks like it belongs.
