Start on your quest for a clutter-free home with this space-saving tall cabinet. Tall enough to maximize vertical space but not so tall that it overwhelms, this makes for an ideal storage option for supplies in small rooms or narrow areas....more
I ordered and received the product listed. As another posted, it was much lighter in color than expected (absolutely not as shown). The assembly was not easy to assemble (though not impossible with a little determination). Just so that you know (in term of the asembly) some of the "pre-drilled " holes did not exist and I had to create them. In terms of the quality of the wood, it wasn't bad. At least it was real wood and not this fake/composite/pressed wood that most things are made of these days.
As a very frequent visitor and buyer on Overstock's site, I found this item to be the very first product that was a complete disappointment! There was a large crack in the front panel and the wood was split in the back. I did like the color, however, but was sorry the pantry itself was not made of quality wood. Because of the weight of this product, I chose not to return it...
Needed extra pantry room. The size, color and style of this cabinet is just right. The top of my refrigerator is now clean and clear.
Assembly was a snap. Parts were numbered. Took about 2 hours including plenty of breaks. The hinge holes were a little off but easy to line up the doors perfectly once the cabinet was standing by putting a cardboard shim under the two doors to make sure they were the same height. Screwing in the twenty some screws for the back panel took the longest even though it took no skill (Hint: the silver screws are for the back panel and the black screws are for the hinges only. will save you double work). Overall, one of the easiest pieces I have ever assembled.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? perfect

The actual color is much lighter than pictured, at first I thought it was unfinished. The wood is pretty soft, be careful when assembling not to screw hardware in too tightly. Have a power drill ready, you'll need it to attach the back piece since there are no pre-drilled holes there. My shipment must have come straight from the factory since the wood was so freshly cut the smell was almost overpowering. I washed inside and out with Murphy's Oil Soap, let it dry all day, then applied lemon oil. Much better.
I live in a small apartment, but I needed storage space for my herbal supplies. This cabinet fit the bill exactly. It's just the right size to fit my supplies. Also, the color is much better than what I had anticipated. It looked a little light on the picture, which I was willing to live with, but the actual color is closer to what you would expect from something labeled as "weathered sage." It's lighter than a hunter green but not light enough to be a pastel. It took me about 2 hours to put together by myself. It probably would have taken about 20 minutes less if I had had a power drill to attach the back panel. Overall, I'm quite pleased with my purchase. I find one of the key things to getting satisfaction from Overstock purchases is to make sure the dimensions of the piece fit what you need. The pictures can be deceiving. This piece is perfect for my room, but it could easily get swallowed up in a much larger room.
The frame itself is a little wobbly (or mine was) however I just layed down a strip of wood glue in all the creases while the unit was upside down and then a second layer the next day and everything tightened right up and the wood glue is in the upper creases of everything so you dont really see it. You get what you pay for of course. The doors of course are not perfect but they are not far off from where they should be and everything functions correctly (I dont have any stuck doors or anything).
The unit is cute once its put together and it has a nice depth to it (I am using it in my bathroom) so I would say for the price this is a pretty good storage unit.
This item is very difficult to put together--I work in retail and have put similar items like this one together--This Simple Living cabinet is very
poor quality. After trying to get the lock nuts to work the whole thing fell apart--worked 4 hours and gave up. I will not order anything from your company again--I'm pissed
Holes for assembly were all off and had to re drill. No holes for one of the shelves. Doors do not fit properly. Misaligned. Door knobs were chipped. Does not stand level even after shelves were filled adding weight to cabinet.
So sorry that I bought this. To heavy and costly to ship back
Not even worth one star
I have ordered two of these cabinets (identical, in white), and I am happy with the finished product. As a student, I have put together numerous shelves and desks having similar quality and sets of instructions.While the finished product of these cabinets were ultimately worth the time and effort, I do have complaints about the user-friendliness of both the instructions and the quality of the manufacturing. The tools and mechanisms to put together the cabinet were not adequate to properly secure the cabinet. I had to go to the hardware store and purchase 12 L brackets and matching screws in order to properly secure the cabinet so that it would not sway from side-to-side.

Hello 7meemster7, We are not sure what you are envisioning, but the bottom of the cabinet would not match up with the top part of the cabinet if you are placing one over the other. We are not recommending it. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 30, 2013
