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...
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.
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.

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.
After reading the reviews on this Tall Cabinet, I was pleased to note the package arrived in excellent condition and the contents were wrapped to assure no damage could occur during shipment. Unwrapping the carton, we noted each component was marked with a number or letter that corresponded with the enclosed list and directions for assembly. We counted all the parts, were assured that each one was present and accounted for and then began the construction of our new cabinet.
To avoid any possible distress to the wood, we assembled the cabinet on a blanket covered kitchen floor. From the point where we had everything laid out in prep through the assembly process took approximately two hours. Some of that time is attributed to the one fact that many reviewers mentioned, the back panel (cardboard backing) did not have associated holes drilled to accommodate the included screws. Once we set up the completed cabinet in the spot where it was to reside, we could not have been happier. The cabinet doors aligned nicely once we adjusted the magnetic closures and the entire unit was plumb and sturdier than imagined.
We are using the cabinet as an additional kitchen pantry and the adjustable shelves did make a difference. I was able to set it up to allow for large boxes of cereal and bottles of vinegar and oil to fit without an issue. The cabinet size is deceptive, it holds way more than I thought it would. I was able to empty two large base kitchen cabinets and a table full of canned tomatoes (58 jars) into the cabinet and still have room for more groceries. We are happy with the style, size, color and configuration of this item and might consider coming back for another to use in the hallway or entry.
After reading some comments about hard assembling, I was buying this cabinet with a little fear. But I really liked it on the picture, and I decided that it worth it to try.
The cabinet arrived really fast and in the perfect condition. I assembled it myself during 1 hour with breaks. The assembling instruction is clear; all of the holes are present. The assembling is easy.
The cabinet is great looking. I bought the red one. It’s a little bit darker, than on the picture, but lovely any way.
The only thing wasn’t perfect in the whole picture – the dimensions of the cabinet are a bit different from the description on the website. The actual dimensions are: 21.5W, 11.25D, 48H.
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
