Very nice bar for the price. We bought it for our son for Christmas, and he really likes it. It took two guys two hours to put together, but they had fun. Two of the bolts were bent and couldn't be used, but the bar stays together fine without them. It's possible the guys bent them when they were assembling. My son is 6'5" so it's nice to have a bar that doesn't look short next to him.
This is a beautiful accent piece to go right between our living room/kitchen. There is tons of storage space - a lot more than I had originally thought. The assembly is probably a bit difficult for the average person- I had a friend put it together who has experience with assembly, and it even took him quite awhile. But it is well worth it for the price.
This was a real beast to put together. It took my husband 4 hours to do it and thank goodness we had the right tools. It looks great and my only problem with it is that the hinges are cheap and we will need to replace them with a better quality soon.
The spirit cabinet is really nice. We don't use the wine bottle dividers, we keep wine bottles in a different location. We added a LED light underneath and put our wine glasses there. Very solid. Took about 2 hrs to assemble. This same cabinet was on-sale for $*** at a furniture store near us. So this is a fantastic value. Thanks Overstock!!!
Nice sized cabinet that is made of real wood. Lots of storage space available on it. A nice piece to compliment a room. It does require a lot of assembly. Be prepared to dedicate a whole day to put it together, but worth it in the end.
I sent this to my adult son as a gift, even though many reviews said it was missing pieces/hard to assemble. Sure enough, he just notified me that it is missing pieces. Now I will have the aggravation of trying to get the missing parts to him. Should have known,
Love love love the piece. It holds wine as well as liquor, glasses, and tools. It looks great both opened up to display contents and closed. Definitely recommend having 2 people to put it together. Don't forget the small metal bars to hold in the bottles on the side or you'll have to repeat many steps to reassemble. That happened to us but it ended up working out just fine. It's a beautiful piece.
The bar is a great deal for the solid construction and spacious size. The side shelves fit 750mL bottles of many different sizes; the only bottles that didn't fit are the short, fat bottles like Templeton Rye or Cabo Wabo. The wine rack is not an integral part of the structure and slides right out, so I use that section for those bottles; I really appreciate that, but if you are a wine drinker that section may be a bit unstable since its not part of the structure. The core console holds a lot of glasses (8+) plus shakers (2) plus utensils, and the height is just right for mixing upon, even for someone as tall as me (6'4") - my complaint with most home bars. The color is darker than the picture, and the description says "brown" but I'd call it black. This works better for my space but YMMV. The piece otherwise looks just as pictured. Construction took about 2 hours for one person without too much fuss..The only heads-up I will give is, to make sure that you assemble the top of the side shelves facing the right way up (two holes upward) otherwise the top piece will be missing a connection (had to redo both sides). The finished product is very solid, and it goes together securely and easily. I'd take off half a star because the top pieces that fold away, fit together a little too snug so they don't close without maneuvering the other side a bit out of the way; but that is my only complaint so far. The product arrived really fast and was packaged well in two boxes.
Purchased this piece for a formal dining room that I converted into a Pool Room. Got it for a great price and it went together fairly easy. The look of the piece is quite nice and it has a much sturdier/heavy feel once assembled. Overall great piece and it sits a little higher then expected which was a plus. I will say make sure you assemble on a soft area or lay down a blanket with nothing underneath. My one complaint is that it scratches pretty easy so be careful during assembly!!! THANKS OVERSTOCK!!!!
This cabinet is very friendly on the eyes. Took a bit of putting together though, it's not **. Item weighs about 60lbs too. The top shelves and cabinet did not align as perfectly as you'd like, took some bending into place, but now looks like the picture.
