As I rebuild my house after Superstorm Sandy, I find I have less storage space than before. I needed a "pantry" type of cabinet that would fit in a narrow space by the door, and this matched the measurements.
However, I didn't intend to use it for mops and brooms, and I wanted two more internal shelves. I phoned Prepac and asked if I could buy some, and at first I was told it would be expensive to ship them, because MDF is so heavy. I said I'd be willing to pay, and the helpful young woman on the phone put me on hold to go find out the cost. When she came back on the line, she said they'd just ship me two shelves, plus the relevant hardware, for free! That's a very rare attitude, and a wonderful surprise!
It wasn't hard to put it together - pretty standard construction for this type of furniture. And now I have a place to keep canned goods, bulk foods like rice, and spare paper towels.

Great little shelf for my sewing room. It went together easily, but you do need to really study the pictures in the directions The written directions aren't very detailed, and I got a piece upside down and had to take some of the shelf apart to correct my mistake. I had a piece upside down so a screw hole was in the wrong position. As I said, the directions did not mention that detail, but you could see the hole if you looked at the pictures very carefully. I'm a reader, not a picture viewer!
But, my shelf went together easily except for that one mistake, and it looks great. Perfect for my needs!

This is a very strong cabinet. Building instructions were relatively straightforward but best if done with 2 people.
This cabinet has given me a good amount of storage for kitchen towels and detergents, etc.
One dissappointment was that while it came with 2 adjustable shelves, if you put brooms inside, there were no holes for the shelves above the broom height. So my broom is outside the cabinet and I am storing the bottoms of all my tall stick items in a pail on the bottom and the sticks outside. If you use this as a cabinet with shelves, you might want another shelf.
