Received the two large boxes on time. But had a problem putting the item together. No instructions were included. Called and got a copy. Found no items (pieces) were numbered as on the instructions. The instructions were not clear and three times I had to disassemble parts and figure out the correct way. Three items were missing. Item looks good enough and I will not call for these. I can make them myself. Will not order from Overstock again.
It was fairly simple to put together because I'm good at puzzles. But there were no written directions and the 132 pieces of hardware were all dumped into one bag with no labels. The wooden parts should have been numbered but they must have fallen off before shipping so that took some figuring out on my part.
I found this product to be just as I expected and wanted. Took about 2 hrs to put together. Directions were very good. Quality very good. Delivery process and customer service excellent as I contacted via chat for delivery info. Overall extremely happy.
We were looking for a cart we could use in our kitchen as well as move into our dining room as a side table and this works just perfectly! We just moved temporarily into a one-bedroom apartment and needed some additional storage and counter top space, but didn't want to invest in something too large or expensive. We had looked around for units around town at furniture stores but they were simply not fitting the bill. So we saw this online and decided to try it. It came quickly but the box with the wood top in it was pretty mangled. The only thing damaged inside was the very top and it was cracked. I immediately got in touch with customer service via the "chat" line and there were no issues at all with getting a replacement, which was shipped out the next day. Once receiving the second shipment, all was good and I was able to assemble the unit in about 4 hours, just taking my time. This is not something I would normally do, but I wanted to see how difficult it was. I was surprised how well it all fit and I'm really proud that I could handle it without my husband's help! Although he did show me how to use his electric screw driver and heads to make the assembling go more quickly. We love the cart and it will work just fine for our current living situation. We will use Overstock again!
This little island is perfect for my kitchen. It sits right in the middle of the floor, but I am able to wheel it around or move it to clean under. It also has good storage, both behind doors and open. I use it often for pulling out and putting together recipes and dishes. Very convenient and very pretty, too. Bright white and very clean looking. Assembly was relatively easy, although there was one hole that was in the wrong place and I had to bore one in the right place.
This was easy to assemble and looks great. My only issue is the drawers. I'm not sure if I did something wrong along the way or it's just the way it's made butbthen drawers are sometimes hard to open or close. I tried taking it apart and rebuilding it but didn't change. Maybe a little oil will help.
This island scratches SO easily, so that's the biggest downfall. Make sure you put together on carpet or spread out a blanket. I put it together on wood floors and now the top is scratched up. I covered it with a large cutting board, so it's no big deal, but just so you're aware. Assembly wasn't too complicated- it does take a little while. Finished product is great though! The perfect addition to our teeny, Manhattan kitchen.
I like this kitchen cart, although assembly can be a hassle. The only thing that I would advice against is the chemical (spray paint) smell, if you are sensitive to smells and chemicals, this might not be your cart. It has been a week since we constructed the piece and it still smell a bit. I am sure it will wear off at some point. Another minor thing that happened with this purchase is, that it arrived on a broken box and a damaged piece. But I will blame the shipping company for this, as they did not take care of the package in transit. Overstock and I are working on getting a replacement part or something. Other than this, great piece, its sturdy and beautiful!
We're quite happy with this kitchen cart even though its not the highest quality piece of furniture. As many other reviews have stated, its a bit of a bear to assemble and our came with a bent drawer runner so one of the drawers is a bit "sticky". However, it looks great and is highly functional for the cost. Wonderful, quick service from Overstock!
The cart was delivered a few days after it was promised. The cart came in two boxes and was missing some parts. We made a phone call and sent a text message about those parts. Both times we were told they would send the missing parts. We have not yet received them so went to the local hardware store and purchased items that would work. Sever we had to paint to match. The instructions contain NO step by step instructions for putting the cart together. We did receive a parts list and blow up blueprint type drawings of were all the parts go. The quality of the materials is less than you would expect in the average "put it together yourself" type of furniture. While the cart will work for us as a place to store extra glassware, etc on our lanai, I would NOT think it would hold up to average kitchen island type use. I also will not be wheeling it anywhere in spite of casters installed on the bottom. I am not happy with this purchase and spent way too much money for what I got.
Comes in two boxes. Both were quite heavy and the cart itself was quite heavy once assembled. There were a lot of pieces and it took me some time to put it together and I am good at this kind of stuff. The instructions are all pictograms with no textual descriptions and I wound up making a small error in assembly. I wound up drilling a couple of holes to adjust the shelf heights; but this was my error. Overall I got more than I expected.
