Needed a pantry space, limited by size that the kitchen layout dictated. Searched and debated over many styles and websites over long period. I really did not want to spend too much, found one similar in size at half the price, but was made of particle board. The size and materials was what made my final decision. My boyfriend and I put it together in no time, the glue that was included had to be tossed out (glue was in solid form), fortunately my boyfriend does woodwork and had 'wood glue'. Pretty solid piece, only have had it a month, so can not truly judge durability. Has a weathered/antique look, probably could use another shelf for that height of unit (but also depends on the user's needs). I give it a definite thumb's up, good solid piece of furniture that should withstand it's everyday use.

I was surprised when the Island got shipped 2 weeks sooner than expected. This was good because it was a Christmas gift for my wife. I do cabinet work but am almost always too busy to build anything for my own home. I chose this one because I liked the style, the flat panel doors , the warm maple wood and the reasonable price. The assembly went pretty well but the directions were confusing at times. All the holes lined up and all of the screws worked as planned except the screws for the drawer slides of which the heads were too small for the holes even though they were in a special bag stating that they were bigger than normally supplied. Instead, I used 4 #8 screws of the same length that should have gone for the braces for the top. The smaller #6 screws worked fine for the top braces. The doors swing on pins instead of hinges so there is no adjustment but none was needed. The bottom is designed to sit on pins like the middle shelf but I plan to get some small angle brackets for the bottom shelf so the unit doesn't wrack out of square. I also plan on replacing (eventually) the drawer slides with full extension ball bearing slides so you can see what's in the back of the drawer and because the top of the drawer front rubs on the counter top. There is no adjustment on the slides provided. I will also replace the handles with some oil rubbed bronze handles to match the hardware in the kitchen. I also drilled two more holes for the middle shelf for more adjustment. Since the wood came with an oil finish, it will probably need more finish in time but that's an easy thing to do. The instructions tell you which oil to use to re-coat the unit. All in all, the island should serve the porpoise and provide some much-needed counter space and storage. The quality was well worth the $250 I paid (free shipping) and it was the lowest price I could find after looking at about 10 sites. I saw this island advertised for almost $400. at one site! I think the average person will be happy with the island as supplied, I just wanted to make it a little more unique with the little changes I made.

Have this item on our front porch, year around in Wisconsin. Love it, but for our weather, we needed to replace the wood. This was expected - great style

Great buy and the width is just the right size for my appliances without taking up a ton of space in my kitchen

This cabinet is perfect. I think the quality and style are wonderful, especially for the low price. I searched elsewhere but no other price came close to this. Looks great!

This is a great cart, especially for the price it is offered for on Overstock. I saw it on other sites for quite a bit more. It's sturdy overall, the black finish was done perfect and the stainless steel top is substantial and did not have any scratches. This is the second piece of furniture I've bought from the Home Styles brand and I'm very happy with quality of both. Both items were packaged very well, which makes all the difference as to whether or not the item comes damaged from the shipping process (which has been issue with other furniture I've bought from other brands). I am not terribly handy, but I did not have a hard time putting together the cart other than for one of the drawers. The first drawer went together perfectly, but on the second one, the four sides did not line up properly with the bottom, and the particle board partially disintegrated from the screws. As a result, that drawer is especially weak and I only use it for holding kitchen towels. I have to agree with some of the other reviewers that the drawer bottoms are rather flimsy. I would not keep silverware or anything heavy in them - even the one that went together fine. I also was not a fan of the handle hardware, so I just bought different hardware that matches the handles on my kitchen cabinet drawers and it looks great. The description of the product is inaccurate where it states that the center shelf is adjustable. Neither of the shelves are adjustable, they must be fixed in one position where notches have been cut out in the legs in the cart to fit the shelves. I was disappointed that the shelf was not adjustable since I was hoping to store a few taller items on the shelf which do not fit. The height between the shelves is only about 9 inches. Overall this is an attractive and well-made cart.

I'm very pleased with this cart. I have a small kitchen and this provides extra counter space and storage, the wheels make it mobile, and it looks nice. It was easy to put together - I'm horrible at putting furniture together and I was a little intimidated at first by all the pieces, but the instructions were good and it's all modular pieces that snap into place; no tools are needed. A part of me liked how other carts with doors looked, to hide my junk and keep things looking neat, but I think this open/modular style is better because you can adjust the shelf sizes to whatever you want and you can arrange the pieces how you want or leave pieces out. I left out the towel bar. I love the hooks on the side, that has been handier than I expected, and the bamboo cutting board is sturdy and quality. The board is a little heavy so lifting it out for a lot washing would be hard so I don't cut meats on it; I use a separate board, which I think is a good idea anyway, I use this board for veggies/fruits and then wipe it down with hot water. I also used some mineral oil on it so that it doesn't dry out, I'll probably do that once a month.

This a great looking, sturdy piece of furniture. I also love how it blends in with my kitchen without taking over the style of the kitchen like so may free standing islands do.The openness of the product also gives you plenty of options on how to personalize your kitchen. I used distressed wooden containers on the top two shelves for onions, garlic, potatoes etc. and an antique dough bowl on the bottom.

I saw this piece in a friend's apartment. I asked where she had purchased it, as it would be perfect in my kitchen and solve my lack of space problem. This was my first experience with Overstock. I went on line and looked at the different styles. I found this one, which fits best with the decor of my small kitchen. I paid someone to put it together for me, and he said it was quite easy to do. I am very happy with this purchase, which holds my silverware, pots pans, and knives.
