We chose this hamper after we realized it would have to sit out in plain sight in our bedroom. It is very nice looking and decently sturdy. However, a heavy object or person falling on it could crack or crush it. The lid is light, so it won't slam down when you close it. It feels almost as light as balsa wood. It will hold 1-2 loads of laundry in it. I wish it came in a darker wood color; I'm thinking of staining it to match our bedroom furniture. The bottom is a completely different material, but does not show.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It was spot on.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It is built sturdy, but the wood is very lightweight. It could get crushed if someone fell on it.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate.
It was the size hamper I was looking for and I wanted wood. When I received it, it was very thin & flimsy wood. Some of the pegs wouldn't fit, so my husband had to hammer the holes deeper. After that, it went together fairly easy, but just very lightweight. The color was too light, so we bought 2 cans of stain, another XX, to get the color we wanted.
