I purchased 2 of these cabinets to flank my white fireplace. The instructions were horrible--no written directions, only pictures, which would've been fine had the pictures been clear and detailed. The actual pieces were labeled clearly, but it was hard to tell from the instructions how they fit together and with which hardware. However, I've put together quite a bit of furniture so I was able to figure it out on my own. I needed an L-shaped philips head which was not included. You simply cannot tighten one cam without an L-shape or super-short-handled screwdriver. You can't see it from the picture, but the drawer section is separate from the door section, so there is an ugly seam visible on the sides where the two meet. The first cabinet that I put together included 2 right sides instead of a right and a left, but I'm handy and made it work. It took me more than 2 hours to put the first one together. The second went togehter faster, but it had major issues. A hole for a cam wasn't hollowed out correctly and the drawer didn't fit together correctly. Actually both drawers on both units ended up so tight that they'll be unusable. It looks great from the front, and the glass door is usable, so I'll keep them and make it work. If not for the hassle of taking them apart and packing them up, I would have returned the cabinets. I would NOT choose these again and will not be buying any cabinet by this maker.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? True to color.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very poor quality. An ugly seam (see description) is visible on the sides, and the drawers are so tight that we won't even use them. It's sturdy enough for my purpose, but if I were to use it for it's real purpose (in a bathroom where it would be used every day) it would not hold up. The constrution is really poor.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? You should show a side view of the product because the drawer section is separate from the glass door section which creates an unsightly seam on the sides of the cabinet.
I was very happy with this at first. It was easy to put together and looked beautiful. Until two weeks later when I noticed it listing to the side - sort of on its way to becoming the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Too late to return it so my husband and I are going to have to attach some strengthening supports in the back. Very pretty but I'd move on to the next one.

This product was a huge disappointment. Cabinet pieces were chipped, bolts and screws were loose inside the box, instructions are not written (simply an attached illustration), and product was extremely poor quality. We were trying to match this with the Veranda bathroom wall unit we had previously installed but I should have known better. Our first order was also a very poor product and the cabinet doors were poorly designed (crooked). Avoid Veranda brand in general.
This cabinet is cheaply and inadequately made. The whole backing is purely a piece of cardboard. It took almost two hours to put together and it now slanting to one side because the pieces don't fit into each other flush. I'm not happy with this purchase and would never recommend it.
I was very disappointed in this product. Material is very cheap, it was scuffed and chipped out of the box. It was also damaged further as I tired to assemble it. It took almost 2 hours to put together and it wobbles even with the hardware that is supposed to keep it stable. I would have sent it back but it would have been way too much work to put back in the box and ship. I will just keep the lights dim in my bathroom.
For the price, it's a good buy. The storage cabinet is beautiful and bright white which is what I needed, but the workmanship leaves a lot to be desired. I needed extra storage space in my bathroom that wouldn't take a lot of space and wouldn't hurt my wallet, so this cabinet was the only one that fit the bill. Trust me! I looked all over the internet. Like many other reviews indicated, the instructions are HORRIBLE!! Thank goodness, I'm already an expect at these "picture only" instructions, otherwise, I still may be putting it together. It took me about an hour. The cabinet came with a few knicks that I was able to hide with some glossy white paint that I just happen to have handy. Otherwise, maybe every some "white-out" would have done the trick. All in all, a good buy. I've gotten many compliments on the unit.
Needed something to fit in the corner of the bathroom to store some towels and smaller items. It looks good, the design works with everything. Was easy to assemble but you do need two people to put the door on. For the most part this is a great item and for the price I have no complaints.
A total piece of junk. Went together easy but final product is not good. Cabinet is unstable and all fittings are very loose. The whole cabinet is just poorly constructed. Do not buy!!! not worth the money at all
It is not made very well at all for the money. On the first step, we have broken two cams already due to poor construction. We are sending back. Got another veranda unit, though not great, it went together as it should.
