The cabinet wasn't too difficult to put together as some others had said, it took two of us at times to make sure all the dowels connected, but all the parts fit. In the directions there were some discrepancies about where a dowel may go according to the picture, picture can be misleading. On the metal dowels just put them all in the holes with the plastic ring, don't go by the picture, otherwise all okay. Looks real nice all together.

Very nice island. Love the drop leaf! Drawers are short in length & can't hold tin foil or plastic wrap, but cabinet area is big & holds a lot. Overall very pleased & it looks great! It will take some time to assemble, but I feel it is worth it.

I got this thing and was immediately surprised by the quality. It's heavy, stylish stainless. I have a pretty small kitchen, but I love to cook and have altogether too much cookware so I definitely needed the storage. This product was a great addition to my kitchen. One major thing I realized right away that no other reviews pointed out is that with just a phillips screwdriver, you can flip the hooks for the wire rack nested in the shelf and hang it so the center brace is above the rack. You'll fit a lot more pans that way if you have the ceiling clearance to pull it off. The only drawbacks are the crap galvanized mounting hardware and simple plastic drywall anchors, coupled with the odd mounting hole spacing. It would be 100% impossible to drive more than one of the three mounting screws into studs, not that the 1 1/4" wood screws they give you would even bite into a stud. I have bonded copper/stainless pans, and I certainly wouldn't trust this rack mounted with the provided hardware. I will get stainless hardware some day since the galvanized against the stainless will cause pitting, but in the meantime, I flipped the hooks so the center brace was on top, drove that into a stud with a 2 1/2" drywall screw, and rather than use the junk drywall anchors they gave me, threw in some butterfly bolts for the two mounting holes on the actual shelf.

Shelves come wrapped in plastic, and there's a set of screws fot the top shelf which is tricky to attach without help. The item was too heavy for me to safely lift & carry. Careful not to get it wet as it will rust & or scratch the paint chip off. Sturdy peice of furniture for wrought iron lovers and a nice addition to any room.

Great piece of furniture! It arrived in 5 rather large well lpacked and cushioned boxes (UPS hated me that day). If your experienced in putting furniture together this is not a difficult to assemble. If your new to it it may take you a little longer to get the hang of it. I put this together myself. The chairs were very easy, maybe 1/2 hour for each one. The island was a bit more work taking me 2 hours (by myself) to assemble. I would recommend 2 people would be preferable to do this and it would probably go quicker as it's easier with one person holding a piece to the base while the other one deals with the bolts. By yourself.. a little more challenging and you have to be more creative. In my case I put the base up on paint cans so I could hold the side piece up with one hand and connect the bolts from underneath with the other (vs. laying it on it's side as indicated in the directions which doesn't work with only one set of hands). After that was assembled, eased it off the cans and then cantilevered the top (which comes in one piece and you attach the leaf) onto the base. It probably wasn't pretty to watch but it got the job done. I also added gliders to the bottom replacing the plastic 'feet' so that I can more easily move it along the floor for cleaning, etc. It is a beautiful piece of furniture, even more so at this price. I would highly recommend this to anyone!

This cart was one of the least expensive I have been able to find. It is a good size, and sturdy. The components work properly, it looks good. I had no trouble building it by myself. The knife block is pretty useless. It is essentially a box with no bottom and a tiny slit at the top, which you are supposed to set your knives into, holding 2, maybe 3. Had I realized what it was going to be before hand - I would have turned it upside down and made it a storage place for plastic bags or something.

We looked all over trying to find a cabinet to go in the hall next to the bathroom. Our new place just doesn't have enough space for all my toiletries, etc. When we came across this, we thought it was the perfect thing to fit the bill. My better half doesn't expect much from assembled furniture, but for xxxx, we thought we'd be getting our money's worth. Not so. Straight out of the bag, the plastic piece of hardware that holds the magnets on the inside of the door was broken. The wood came with dings and a few places where it had clearly been filled with wood filler. Once I got over the fact that it just wasn't going to be a really nice piece of furniture, I started putting it together hoping that the dings wouldn't be noticeable. Then come to find out (at the very end of putting it all together), that the pre-drilled holes for the doors made the doors hang completely crooked, so much so that one of them wouldn't even close. Fortunately, my better half is rather handy. We super glued the plastic hardware & 2 of the knobs that wouldn't stay on. Then he filled the door screw holes with wood glue. The next day were were finally able to re-drill the holes & attach the remaining door. Mind you, its the only one that hangs straight. All in all, had I known all this going in, I wouldn't have bought it in the first place.

I was looking to replace a glass-topped metal hallway table and needed something a specific height to balance with a large piece of artwork hanging above. I did a lot of research online and finally decided to go with this table. After it was assembled, it is clearly shorter than I had realized. The height measurements provided are not from the floor to the top of the shelf but rather, from the floor to the the top of the decorative iron backing. It works okay in the space but it is kind of dinky. The back iron piece was banged up and it wasn't until I had fully assembled the piece that I noticed this. I would have tried to return if it wasn't already together and if the packing box was still intact. On the positive side, the assembly went smoothly. I am a petite woman and I put it together alone at a leisurely pace in about 45 minutes. The rattan is not the cheesey plastic-y kind so I do like that. The top is hard to balance objects on. Currently I have a thin, tall buffet-style lamp and it is a little wobbly. I also dislike that the inside baskets kind of fall out when opened (there are no tracks for the baskets to slide on). Overall, this table is okay but I wouldn't buy it again.

It's true that the white shelf slats are precariously stapled onto the underlying white wood grid. Forewarned by other reviewers, I handled the shelves very gingerly while unpacking them. Even so, had to use Goop on just one slat. In position, i.e. in use, the chintzy stapling is not a problem. Note that the upper and lower shelves are not interchangeable. The hardwood top and base have 4 dowel holes pre-drilled. Only 2 dowels are supplied, as indicated in the Parts List. So what, do they profit an extra 9 cents from each unit as a result? Seems also chintzy. The most challenging assembly problem was that the 4 metal tabs that screw into the underside of the hardwood top were not formed at anywhere near a sufficient angle to allow just rotating them into the linear grooves in the left and right sides of the cabinet. Just rotating them would have left them about an inch below the grooves. Those tabs are all that hold the top onto the cabinet, with the two dowels only aligning the top to the base (unless you were to glue them). The tabs are very difficult to bend. The solution I applied was to screw the 4 metal tabs firmly onto the underside of the inverted top, and then use the claw of a hammer to bend them up sufficiently to match the level of the grooves. This was done gingerly, in about 4 partial bends each, setting the top on the base each time to check progress, and then takling it off to bend the tabs further. While the angles are now not ideal, the top is quite snug, and the only time a potential problem could ensue woulf be if sharply lifting the whole unit by the top edges. But because of my outstanding artistry in the bending, even this is unlikely. Further, the particular drawing for that assembly step was almost useless, with the relative sizes and locations of those two interlocking parts rendered completely inaccurately, except for the 90-degree angle involved. The second most challenging problem was tapping some of the metal pins into a few slightly undersized holes (Other holes were fine --just snug enough). Even hammering the pins through a block of wood, the lower right rear cabinet wood splintered apart. Clear Household Goop (not the yellow "Plumbers Goop"), two clamps, overnight dry--and I won't tell any of the females around here if you don't. Beyond that, I will say that all the predrilled holes were in excellent alignment. Note that the handle on the right side adds length to the advertised dimension. In the tight corner next to my stove, I had to just leave it off. Trying to think of something else to do with the beautifully-finished handle offers hours of contemplative fun, particularly if you keep it near the toilet. The answer so far: Nothing. The height of the unit is at least an inch and a half lower that the standard stovetop next to it. No big deal, but I did subsequently acquire a 30-inch wide, 1 and 1/2 inch-thick heavy hardwood top to set atop the unit, to make it more nearly contiguous with the level of the stovetop. *** or so, thus made the whole purchase significantly more $$$. But I like the look--more of an actual butcher block, and two inches deeper than the top of the original piece. Looks great, and doesn't detract from ease of opening the drawer. You actually cannot see the original top, without bending way down. I left out the upper shelf, and set a white plastic "tall kitchen bag" trash receptacle on the lower shelf. When in use, the receptacle may be pulled out and set against the unit's door, snugged to the stove. It barely sticks out past the front of the stove, if at all. (My unit is to the right of the stove.) There is still room on the shelf for a couple of large cutting boards set on end. If you found this review useful, please send a large amount of money to Bob, P.O. Box ***, **** NY ****.

We bought this cart to put in our ittle clubhouse kitchen at our condo pool. We need it to be durable. However, the doors on the cart have a snap in type hinge on the top and bottom of the door. A peg on the door snaps into a hole on the cart. One door continually falls off when it is opened, Also the "cheryr" top looks good in the picture and looks like plastic in reality. Very Disappointed.

Let me start out saying that this is a nicely designed cabinet. Well packaged. All parts were included. Just had a couple of Minor issues. 1: One of the shelves, A couple of slats fell off. Fixed that with a screw from underneath. When they stapled it, They missed the wood. 2: Dowls were really tight. I cracked one of the plastic mounts on the magnetic door catch. All in all, Its a Very good unit. With a Sturdy wood top. Drawer is big enough to hold boxes of Foil wrap, Plastic wrap, Etc.

I was very pleased with this island as it fits into my small kitchen like a glove and actually makes it appear larger. Great for storing light paper products like paper plates cups napkins plastic ware. I would not put heavy pot and pans in this island. I purchased 2 bar chirs to eat at this island and it is wonderful

I love my new kitchen island! I live in an nyc apartment that lacks counter space and storage, so this cart was perfect for me. As many people have said, it's surprisingly sturdy and heavy and has a good amount of cabinet space. Though it was tricky to assemble (a lot of small parts), I had the help of a very handy friend. I can imagine it being pretty hard to assemble alone. My only issue is it has a sort of plastic, industrial smell to it- mostly inside the cabinets. I've had it only a couple weeks but it's still lingering. I've washed it a couple times, even tried using vinegar, but it's still there. It's not a noxious fume but it is noticeable. I hope it goes away!

When this item arrived the box was battered, but the contents were in perfect condition. One of the plastic tube inserts was missing from the top rear metal support, but I found it inside some of the packing material. The directions were a little confusing and at first I put the frame together backwards, but once I got oriented things went pretty well. I was surprised at the workmanship and how well all the holes lined up. My only complaints are that the color is darker and the unit is smaller than I expected.

I needed this storage space to augment a very small rental home kitchen, and it is storing nearly all our food, which leaves the rest of the cabinets for dishes and cookware. It assembled in a straightforward way, and I appreciated the leveling feet especially. The appearance is very attractive. It goes great with the Bermuda kitchen island. So much more appealing than plain white laminate presswood pantries. It was expensive considering the purpose and function, but to me the beauty was worth it for my kitchen. The center panel between the top and bottom cabinets has a different composition than the doors and sides. It may be engineered, because the finish scratches off easily from this rim. I've tried hiding the mars with furniture repair crayons and such. Waxy ones don't stick to the scratched area, nor do water based ones seem to want to sink in. The area below the scratched off finish feels kind of plastic. A black Sharpie has fairly well hidden the problem.

I was looking for something to help organize my tiny kitchen better, and this works nicely! Putting it together is definitely a two person job, as the pegs it uses in the beginning really don't "hold things together". A second pair of hands is a must, as is a power screwdriver. It took my daughter and I about three hours to put it together. There were a few glitches in putting it together. One was that a picture in the directions shows pieces lining up perfectly, as if they were the same length, when they aren't. (It was confusing that they didn't line up visually to the directions, and it took me a few minutes of looking at things to realize it really was OK, and a piece that seemed to be extra long really wasn't!) The other was that the guide holes for the hinges of the top/drop leaf did not line up properly, and I had to place new holes with on one piece an awl. (I couldn't get the screws in without them) I didn't have the problem others have mentioned about one piece having UP pointing in the wrong direction. The drawers -are- on the smallish side (They'll barely fit boxes of gallon-sized baggies, but not longer boxes of plastic wrap), so I'm using them for smaller utensils and the ever-necessary junk drawer. The shelf space in the cabinet is decent, I have a large crock pot and blender on the bottom one. It looks good, and I'm pleased with how it's working for me in my small space.

OK, so after unpacking the box and finding an untold number of wooden pieces, none of which were identified, & a plastic bag filled with screws, few of which I could distinguish from one another, I piled up the contents in a corner of my living room to await a day when I could better draw upon an extraordinary measure of patience. This proved a good plan for the assembly instructions were not as clear as they could be and I found myself scrambling for components where every piece pretty much looked like the other. All in all it took me a week to assemble (I kept coming back to it when I found the time). I only had to backtrack (disassemble) once on one step toward the end. I was not always entirely sure I was using the correct screws and such, but in the end I had no parts left over! Always a good sign. Better yet, once completed I stood back and marveled at the accomplishment. Everything worked! I would never have guessed that the drawer would slide in as easily as if a professional carpenter had installed it. Now I understand that successfully assembling this complex cart makes me no more a master carpenter than a paint by numbers set makes me a master painter, but still the sense of accomplishment and the boost to my self-esteem were alone worth the price of admission. Enthusiastic kudos to the person(s) who designed this kit and the workers who pre-drilled all the holes for me. When you think about the engineering skills that went into the design and prep of this kit you have to admit there is a fair amount of genius at play. No joking. If someone with my limited skills could put this thing together then someone on the production side deserves a medal at the very least, even as we might want to send the person who wrote the instructions to a refresher course. The smartly constructed cart looks good in my kitchen also, but it's use-value, though great, pales in comparison to the sense of pride I feel when I tell others "I assembled that!".

This cabinet took a little bit of time to assemble between two people, but once it was finally put together, it definitely fits our kitchen well. We were able to stuff a lot of things in there, too. The box was originally missing some of the plastic reinforcements, but we contacted them, and they sent us the rest of them quickly. I would get this again. (:

Keep in mind this is particle board- not real wood so it is easily damaged. But it came shipped in decent condition- minimal scratches. It is easy put together- I did it by myself in about an hour but I was easily distracted by other things :-)....HOWEVER I ordered two of these- one with the see through front and one with the wood panels and I received two of the see through plastic doors. I still like it and just plan on buying the frosted stuff to put on it for privacy to hide my mess- but I wish I got what I ordered so I don't have to make a special trip to get more supplies. Also- this doesn't bother me since I am not putting anything valuable in them, but the sides are open so dust and things can easily get in. This can be fixed to thin plastic/glass but it is something to consider

I needed a counter in my dining room, and this was just the right size. I doubt I need the drop leaf, but its a good thing to include. I didn't need the towel rack, but the spice rack worked out great, and I was able to fit it in the left side where needed, when the plans called for right side. I wasn't looking for a counter with wheels, so that is also a bonus. I was going to place my heavy weight Kitchen Aid mixer on the shelf, but decided against it due to the plastic shelf clips Construction wasn't too bad until you start messing around with the DOWELS. I tried to follow the plans per instructed, but I found the dowels were too loose and the panels would flop and fall. At one point, one of the panels fell on another and placed a small dent on the second panel. So I regrouped and started with the pieces required for the left side, installed the screws, and worked my way toward the right. I did not tighten any of the screws until everything was lined up. The finished product is very nice looking. Only suggestion is to assemble with two people per instructions, or be an octopus.
