I was very excited about this bar, but I had a difficult time building it by myself. If you purchase this item, definitely plan to have 2 people on hand when you put it together. Two of the screws broke during the building process, and I noticed that one of the pre-glued slats was attached and glued in a crooked way. I wound up returning the broken pieces after my attempt to build this product failed.

I'm pretty disappointed. The hinges are very poor quality and one came apart while building. I had to hammer the rivet back into shape to keep the hinge together. I get that this would have cheaper MDF, but they could have spent the extra 20 cents to provide a better hinge. Also, even more alarming, the fold out doors are too short top to bottom. The hinges are attached to the doors from the manufacture then you attach the doors to the top shelf and the base. The problem is, the doors are about an 1/8" to short to reach the screw holes. If you screw it in like this, the hinges get torqued apart (which is what I initially did), pop goes the rivet and you have a busted hinge... After hammering the rivet back into a usable shape, I put a bracket under the bottom hinge to lift it up the 1/8" so that the hinges line up correctly. My guess is when they designed the length of the doors, they didn't take into account that they were going to flush mount the hinges (they take out a a little material so that the hinge is flush with the wood, not just sitting on top of it) and now the hinges don't reach their screw holes, there's a gap. The drawers are cheap, nothing really holds them in place when you pull them out. The bottom two of the three shelves are to short for a standard sized bottle. Lastly, there was a bunch of black tar like substance on the top of the unit. I rubbed it off with some paper towels, not the worst thing in the world. I wouldn't buy it again, and wouldn't suggest it to a friend. I don't think I'll ever buy something made this manufacturer again. I understand cheap furniture will have cheap materials, but they should at least have the dimensions correct...

I really like it, it fits my space well and looks good, wish they provided an easy way to assemble this. Takes a long time but gets done. Also the cam screws provided are not good, I bought extra ones from home deport to get the work done.
This was the firsy negative experience I have had with Overstock. When I received the bar it had parts missing and some parts duplicated. Getting the parts which were missing was an arduous chore. Many emailk exchanges between me and customer service were required to get the replacements and the process took more than two weeks. Once the replacement parts arrived and the piece was finally assembled, it will be fine for the purpose intended.
I would not recommend this or other furniture manufactured by SEI until I could be assured that their quality control is much better,

The item isn't terrible but I've already had pieces (small metal) pop off and though it might have been my building it the doors aren't even. Overall the item is both lower to the ground & smaller than I thought it would be. I guess it was kinda cheap so you get what you pay for...
