The cart looks great. I purchased a glass top to avoid ruining the finish on the top. I was able to put it together by myself, though it might have been a little easier with a buddy. I recommend partially screwing the legs to the shelving before attaching them to the top. I did not do this and had a tiny bit of trouble getting the first shelf between the legs. This was not a problem with the second shelf. At first the shelves did not look like they would align tightly, but everything looked fine after they were fully screwed in. One of the drawers does not slide as smooth as I would like, but it is otherwise a fine cart. It would be a plus if they had the drawers run on rails.
This cart blends into our kitchen space seamlessly ,in a shade that complements our cabinets-colour is always a worry when buying online.Assembly was straight forward but it helped to have 2 people.We are using it without the sturdy castors for height matching with the kitchen island and we just put felt protectors on the bottom of the feet to protect the floor -super easy! We have bought several items from Overstock.com and have never been disappointed .
The cart looks like a piece of furniture and is complimentary to my kitchen. When the cart was delivered, the box was in bad shape and when I opened the box, the bag with the screws was torn open and screws were everywhere in the box. I was afraid the top had been scratched for all the loose screws. Thankfully, all the parts were in good shape. Putting it together was not too bad but the screws for the legs were a little short and gave us some problems. The instructions said to put the legs on the wooden top first but when we went to add the shelves, we had to force them in which scratched up the legs somewhat. The shelves should have gone on before the top. The drawers are nice and are really useful but I am concerned about the wooden top. I have put a runner on it to protect it and think that I will put glass or something on it to protect it from scratching. Overall I am pleased with the cart.
This kitchen cart is beautiful! I am so pleased with the style and quality. Before ordering, I did not pay enough attention to the caution and care of the wood surface. I had a glass top cut to fit so that I can actually use the piece as a kitchen workstation without worrying over the finish. The slide through drawers are perfect for knives and other utensils enabling me to use the cart as an island s well. It truly "finishes" my kitchen and I would recommend the Orleans to anyone who wants function and an attractive accent!
