My husband and I bought this cabinet as it looked like the perfect color cabinet for our bathroom. We needed just a small simple cabinet to hold baby towels, wraps, etc so that we would not need to leave our baby alone in the bathroom while getting supplies if we accidentally forgot something. In essence a linen storage cabinet. We were excited to receive this product but quickly became concerned. The instructions were nearly non existent simply pictures. Once my husband started to put it together we noticed that a piece of the drawer was cracked all the way along a seam. My husband simply got out some wood glue and reinforced it...Nervous but continued to put it together, hopeful, that the rest would turn out ok. We finally got everything almost put together (noticing that it was "shifty" by nature but thought it would "solid up" once we put the shelves inside) when we noticed the door (that looks so nice) was actually broken and then glued back together by the manufacturer. The glue was obvious, the crack it left was obvious, and the door looked awful. However, we put so much time in it that we at least just wanted to see if it would work. We placed it in the bathroom and I put in the baby's towels, wash clothes, and washing items. I then open and closed the door several times as if I might if I needed to get in it. The whole thing shook!!! Like it was going to fall right over! Once I saw this I knew we could not keep it! What if our infant, who will be a toddler, tries to get his own items and pulls it right over? It is that unstable! I would encourage anyone to really reconsider this product unless you will be using it iwth very short term goals in mind...say only good for up to a year in a dorm or small apartment. Otherwise NOT worth the headaches!
Overstock was very good about the return, however, and emailed me a prepaid return shipping label and full refund.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. It was cheap, broken and then glued or "fixed" in several places and then sold as new
How accurate was the on site description of the product? It was overpriced and made to sound like it was a quality item when it was not
I just completely remodeled my bathroom and when the linen cabinet arrived I was extremely excited. When I opened it up to put together, I discovered that it was antique brass instead of nickel. I will have to go and purchase so nickel handles to replace the antique brass handles. Very disappointing. The front will just have to stay what it is.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color on the photo of the product showed antique brass but the write up said it was satin nickel.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The product was nice

Great storage cabinet for a small corner in the bedroom. Shelves are spacious and I really like the small bottom drawer. The glass door is unique and makes it look very elegant. Very good quality for the price. I must say it was a bit difficult to assemble and required a power screwdriver as the holes were a bit small. Overall, I am pleased with it and it's well worth the money.

For this price I should have gone to a local store and got it assembled and brought home. It came damaged, plus needed extra special tools to fix it. Plus, to fix one particular part, it was so difficult. You need a child hand to reach and tighten. The screws are flimsy, a little over limit, gone forget that screw. They gave exactly what is needed. If you break one, use your imagination to fix it.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Great
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Overall after fixing it with so much hurdle, it looks great now
How accurate was the on site description of the product? not so accurate, many details were missing. Like tools required and expertise level to assemble the product.
This is a very attractive, cute/petite item I'm using to hold/display stemware hubby scavenged when his parents' house was emptied. I have not known what to do with this stuff until I came upon this item. Perfectly solves my problem! Then stemware and the glassfront cabinet complement one another very nicely, and I am quite pleased! (But I really would have liked another foot of height/shelf-space. Also, not exactly rock-solid construction, but good enough for my purpose/siting.)
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? good depiction - almost-black brown = espresso
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems okay, but not heirloom quality - good for my purposes, but wouldn't want kids or dogs rough-housing around it.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? pretty good
It was ok
I would recommend it to a friend with caveats like its build a little chancy so I am not sure how long it will last. But it arrived in good shape. My husband put it together costing him several hours of time that was not expected. I think "assemble is required" should be clearly identified. And I did not appreciate little round plastic stickers to cover up the bolts. However, it contains the stuff we expected it to and fits where we wanted it to.
Overall, I'm pleased with the product. It originally came to us with a damaged door, like a lot of the other reviewers mentioned; however, they got us a new one quickly. Putting it together was a bit of a challenge. More difficult than your Target or Walmart furniture, but the directions were clear enough for us to figure it out. I have put together a lot of Target & Walmart furniture, but I honestly wouldn't have been able to put this one together without my husband's help (don't tell him I said that). It's really a matter of following it closely enough, so you don't make mistakes (we had to pull off pieces several times because we put it on backwards). Once put together, it looks really nice! We use it to hold extra dishes and glassware.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color matches site
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality. Sturdy enough to hold dishes. Not perfect though.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? The metal finish is NOT brushed nickle- it's brass
I purchased two of these cabinets to go on either side of a tv stand I had bought firom a different vendor and the color matched perfectly as described in espresso. One of the cabinets was perfect with no issues. The second was damaged on the drawer bottom and back, although difficult to open with this damage, I can use and easier than taking apart, repacking and reshipping.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? perfect
Please tell us about the quality of the product. overall quality very good, but the bottom on the drawer was damaged. I was able to put together and use, but difficult to open.

Mine looks like brass colornorcaljane on Aug 20, 2013
Can the door hardware be flipped to mount on the other side to allow door to open from the left side? I'm hoping to buy two for either side of an entertainment unit, using them as piers.tcg1949 on May 25, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us tcg1949. It is designed to be opened on the left. If you change it, carpentry and paint would be required. Have a great day. overstockcustomercare1 on May 29, 2013
The drawer is separate but the unit is one piece. If you enlarge the unit, you can see that the line is just a design detail. overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 20, 2012
Is the drawer a seprate unit before it is assembled to the upper cabinet unit? or Is it one complete unit from top to bottom? I noticed a line that seems to seprate the two indicating that it may be two units that becomes one unit after assembed.margaret2hh on Sep 20, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The dimensions of the cabinet are 48.5 inches high by 17 inches wide by 13.5 inches deep.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 13, 2012
I need the dimension of the lower portion of this item. The top looks to be slightly larger and the important dimension for me is the lower portion size.
