I had difficulty putting this together, but that's because I am terrible at putting anything together. Once I figured it out, it wasn't so tragic an experience. I wanted to put binders in the glass part, but they didn't fit, so as far as buying it for my office, not the best, but it works for where I have it and I'll have to use it for something other than binders.
The instructions nearly made me lose my religion! It's sturdy and attractive and is nice in an old home with little bathroom storage. It holds our linens, some grandchildrens' bath toys, toiletries AND cleaning supplies. Perfect for what we needed. But it did take a while to assemble.
Just received this cabinet last night, and my husband and I put it together within an hour. What amazed me was no missing parts. The box was damaged, and I expected something would be amiss inside. But it was so well protected and packed, there was no one thing missing. In fact there is a small bag of EXTRA parts in case you need them. Very good quality. The unit doesn't look or feel cheap. It's cute. I am using in our bathroom.
We purchased this to use as a counter-top cabinet between the sinks in the bathroom. By leaving the legs off (and adding small rubber stick-on feet to protect the countertop), we were able to add lots of storage for those items normally cluttering the counter.
The piece arrived boxed and well marked for assembly. However, there were several mars in the finish. I took liquid paper to mask one edge that was rough/marred. The other flaw was one of the doors was not finished properly. Looks like they missed a second coat on one side. That said it fits in the area I bought it for and holds the few items I needed to store. I would have expected a little more consistent quality even though the price was reasonable. Don't expect it would last long under constant use.
It looks cute enough. I am disappointed that they labeled each piece for assembly, but the labels pull the paint off when you attempt to remove them. I also had to use goo gone to remove residue from the "tempered glass" sticker placed on the doors.
I ordered 2 to use as nightstands. Received both in good condition and did not find them difficult to assemble. I like the idea of a combination bookshelf and open shelving to have by my bed. They're tall for nightstands, but my bed is on risers, so these work perfectly. I feel they were represented accurately on the website & priced fairly. I would not hesitate to purchase this type of furniture again.
