I love Overstock, but I hate this cabnet. The instructions were generic, screws were missing, the wood split in places, and the "white wash" paint job was sloppy. My husband put it together in only 4 short hours. Do Not buy this item unless you need a place to store your matchbox cars. The shelf height is short, which I knew. What I didn't know was that you can not remove any of the shelves to make more room. Stock up on bandaids for all the nicks and cuts you'll get. I wanted to return it but the hubby is bound and determined to use it for something after all his hard work.
Utility pantry appeared much larger online. I was disappointed when I received it as to how small it was. I was planning to store all of my canned goods in it but can only use it to store my seasonings!
Door shelves are functional,, but pantry is extremely small and short. Can only fit 3 soup cans on one shelf door. Pantry is also extremely difficult to put together with a lot of small parts, and the diagrams in the instructions are not very descriptive on top/bottom.
Don't do it. I know this cabinet looks cute, and it seems like a good price for real wood. And maybe like me you are very experienced with assembling furniture, that's why I ignored the negative comments. Unfortunately the negative comments are absolutely accurate, and I am furious about the time I am having to put into this piece to make it workable. It's wood, all right, but it is many pieces of laminated wood with many, many obvious "finger joints", plus a lot of black blotching. The holes are too big for the dowels, and I used most of an 8-ounce bottle of glue to help stabilize this thing (glue not included). The cams (no extra) are pot metal and will crack if much force applied. There are an enormous number of pieces, which would be OK if you ended up with a solid product. But because there is only a cardboard back board, the sides are a bit wobbly even after I used metal braces top and bottom, so now I am going to have to get some plywood and screws and replace the cardboard back. I've spent hours painting this already to cover up the obvious joints and ugly wood. When I am finally done I will have a nice spice cabinet which is what I wanted this for, but something I bought to make life easier has been more hellish to deal with than the dressers I have built. Worst Overstock purchase I have ever made. Sad to say I have MDF pieces better engineered and designed than this.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Honey color was comparable to image
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor quality wood and cam locks, lack of sturdy back leaves cabinet wobbly, many pieces
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Measurements were exact as listed.
I purchased this pantry - first, I received the wrong color; I ordered the Oak, and received the color Sage. Assembling, its not really hard, but it takes a lot of guess work, the instructions are not that clear. The worst part, the storage space is really small, it was designed to store away cans and small bottles, nothing else. If you need a good food pantry with a lot of space to store food items, this is not it. There is not much you can put in it.I ddn't return it because I figured its not worth it, I would have to spend more money for shipping it back.
I ordered this piece for a small area in my kitchen and it fits perfectly. I would say to check the measurements before you order. I searched to find the dimensions on the site and was pleased that they met my needs. It does hold cans nicely but nothing much thicker than a can or cracker box. If I had read the reviews before I ordered, I may have changed my mind because almost everyone commented on the difficulty of putting it together. My husband I worked on it together, read the directions carefully and were able to complete it in about 2 1/2 hours. It seems to be well constructed.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Matched Perfectly
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Well made.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Described well but had to search for the measurements.
If I had wanted a "put together" project I would have gone to Ikea with better results. I have worked with his for 3 days now and it is no closer to completion.
Dowel holes improperly gauged so the dowels fall out..
The product should clearly state that the product need full assembly.
I was really excited to find an inexpensive wood pantry to place in the kitchen. It was the perfect size for my purposes and the sizing listed is accurate. All of the wood pieces were mislabeled. Some even had multiple labels on them! It took a long time to figure out which piece was which.
I like putting furniture together and even when I have challenges with pieces and instructions, some items I will still recommend. This unit is not one of them. It is not very stable when the doors are opened. The piece is very wobbly and I have concern for small children. I used the pre-drilled holes when attaching the doors and both doors rub on the bottom. I have lift up on the handle to open and close.
Again, it looks nice, but I don't think it is very functional nor do I think it will last very long.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was dead on.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It is very nice to have solid wood pieces. Only the back is a pressed cardboard. But very wobbly and unstable when the doors are opened.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The size and dimensions were correct. Everything measured properly.
I had planned to put our Bunn coffeemaker on the top and use the "pantry" for small items. I added extra long screws to the bottom to try to stabilize it. It's made of twist cams and wooden pegs. That's just not enough. we wound up putting it against a wall to get some stability, and now we can't open the right door. Just don't buy it. There's more wrong than I care to relate here. I was so disappointed. The doors wouldn't both shut at the same time and be flush with the cabinet. I love to assemble things, but this was just not adequate. There are screws coming down into the top shelf because the cam system wasn't enough to support any weight.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Shoddy materials and unstable.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not accurate. No mention of flaws in the wood on prominent pieces. Unevenness of the doors, etc.
This cabinet was very difficult to put together and was missing some of the parts. The directions were quite poor as well. Finally, once put together, we had to put an elastic on the knobs to keep the cabinet closed and it wobbles anytime someone walks past it. I will use it only as long as it takes my husband to build me a new cabinet. In the effort to save some time and money, I purchased this extremely poorly made product. Do not buy this!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? very well
Please tell us about the quality of the product. poor
How accurate was the on site description of the product? relatively accurate, except that it is very wobbly
