I just keep staring at it and walking around it. I am so happy with this purchase. The directions are completely thorough, all parts were in beautiful shape, and it is just a quality look (everything lined up perfect). It took me about 4 hours to put together (needed my husband a couple times), and it is a beautiful piece of furniture. I purchased the black one--it is really very solid and heavy.
It is a beautiful piece. Item is just like pictures state. It is also a very heavy duty piece not cheap/flimsy. My husband was able to put together on his own in a couple of hours max. Doors have magnets on them which is nice. One magnet works a little too well but still worth the purchase.
All good EXCEPT that the the braces that hold up the bar part of the island are REALLY UNEVEN making it impossible for the bar to be used. It's not just a small adjustment needed. The brace on one side is the better part of an inch from the wood it should be propping up. Very disappointed in this. For almost *** I would expect the bar portion of the island to be useful.
