I needed a small shelf to fit in a small corner of my kitchen that was heavy duty enough to hold a water dispenser with a 5 gallon bottle on it. This is perfect. 1 drawer for miscellaneous "stuff" a wine rack and bottom shelf. My son put it together for me - so I don't know how easy it was to assemble, but it didn't take him very long. Love the granite top, it is pretty neutral and water won't hurt it!
My husband and I put this together with no problem, except for the wire rack, which we decided not to use. It is nice looking, but it's much redder than our cherry kitchen cabinets. The marble top darkens when you put something damp on it, but then seems to dry out. I guess I need to go online and see if I need to buy some sort of sealant.
The holes were drilled incorrectly on the one we received and one of the wood pieces was split. Enclosed with the directions was a toll free number to call for additional pieces. The number ALWAYS went to voice mail -- no one ever picked up -- and even after I left my phone number explaining I needed replacement parts, no one returned my calls. I cannot recommend this item.
I had been looking for a kitchen island on the smaller side without a wood top. I had found a couple but the price was more than I wanted to pay. I immediately found this one on Overstock and it was exactly what I was looking for. It came in just 3 days and was very easy to put together. I Love it!
Very nice island cart, easy to assemble,sturdy and it's exact the size that I need. I ordered Wenge wood, the color should be on the dark brown side, but this is a little reddish, more less mahogany, good thing it's hiding behind my counter top. that's why I gave 4 stars for the misleading in the color, everything else is excellent.
I got my new Kitchenaid mixer from Overstock, then it wouldn't fit on the shelf. So I got this island/cart which fits in the pantry and holds, not only the mixer, but all the baking 'stuff' (flour and sugar canisters, mixer attachments etc., and rolls right out to be used and then back out of the way! There were a few glitches in the instructions -but I did appreciate the stickers identifying the parts.
