I purchased two of these unit and stacked together. Assemble yeas a little tricky for me. I will be purchasing several more of these units as I love them. The colour I found leans more towards a very light buttery yellow tone.

So first of all, I ordered the aspen cart with the stainless steel top and Overstock sent me the wooden top one. I exchanged it, and again was sent the wooden top one. I decided to just keep it because the effort of hauling a 100 lb piece of furniture back to the UPS store wasn't worth it. I actually think the wooden top is nicer since it has a leaf that folds up for extra counter space, but it doesn't match my kitchen as well. Anyway, the cart looks nice overall. It took 2 of us to assemble it, but wasn't too bad. The cart functions like it's supposed to, but I wish I had known that the rubber wheels would cause my brand new vinyl kitchen floor to turn bright yellow after prolonged contact. This is not really the cart's fault. Apparently that's a thing with all rubber on vinyl, but the weight of the cart makes this chemical reaction happen quite quickly. The cart is now sitting on a rug. Oh well. So my overall recommendation is that the cart is fine, but beware of the wheels if you have a vinyl/ linoleum floor. And don't expect to receive the exact cart that you ordered. I'm rating this product as "average" because it looks nice, but isn't top quality.

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.

The very popular shabby chic decorating style goes by many names, including country cottage and rustic style.

Whether you have a light-filled courtyard and gazebo or a dark, forgotten corner in a room, flowers and plants provide a dash of color and life in a space. Decorating with fresh flowers demands a certain amount of maintenance involving plucking dried or wilted blossoms, changing water and supplying fresh blooms. If you don't have the time and money to invest in fresh flower arrangements, consider silk plants and floral arrangements instead. Start simply and gradually add in more decorative touches as you incorporate flowers into your home decor.
