This island was purchased in an attempt to provide more work space for a kitchen sadly lacking in counter space.it arrived in three large, easy boxes- have muscle power on hand!! I suggest perusing directions and components very thoroughly before beginning.. We took our time and finished the island in three sessions. It is strong, sturdy, attractive and provides much needed work space. Our kitchen is now much easier to live with. Love it!!
I searched a long time for a kitchen island to add to the counter space & extra cabinets for my kitchen. When I saw this one, I continued to search other sites but kept coming back to this one. It arrived in less than a week and took less than 2 hours to put together. I love that it is made of solid wood, has 2 doors with divided shelves for extra storage, has 2 drawers, has an extension on the top that gives even more extra counter space. The distressed wood top is beautiful, too. I ordered when there was a 12% off coupon, which made the deal even better. Highly recommend this one if you are looking for a quality kitchen island.
This island assembles in about an hour. Is very solid and a perfect size for all my baking. I use it for extra counter space or sit it with my coffee in the mornings reading the paper. I put a light fixture over it and it really looks custom!
The island was very easy to put together with 2 people and looks great. The only reason for 4 stars and not 5 is a large divit on the top which would have been clearly seen when they made the product. It wasn't worth the trouble of shopping it back but was too large to be part of the distressed look.
Packages came right on time, the UPS Driver was not too thrilled delivering those heavy packages and kinda chunked them in front of my door. Opened all of them up carefully (as instructed). I left the heavy top in the box since it was too heavy for me to move alone (had to wait for help). Everything went together fine, followed the instructions, cursed a couple of times... but all in all simple. Moved the bottom unit in the kitchen, proceeded to put the top on with my helper ......BIG DING IN THE WOOD ..... Found that 3 shelves are also damaged plus the divider for the bottom piece is damaged as well I called immediately, no answer left message. Finished the Island, looks good, if you can overlook that big Ding in the middle of the top. All the other stuff only I know. Called the next day, and sent Email no answer, left message. Calling again today ..... I am guessing there will be another Email/Message. All in all, nice piece for my Kitchen, but getting no reply from the Company really sucks.
I couldn't be happier. It is exactly as pictured. Very solid. It arrived in 3 boxes and each had a parts in this box list. Box 3 had the assembly instructions. Easy enough to follow but I was glad to have help as some of the pieces are too large and heavy for one person to manage (in my opinion). And why bother? Grab a friend and a fun beverage of your choice and make a project day of it. Then order a pizza and admire your handiwork.
I purchased this island for my L-shaped kitchen. After moving into a new house, and checking out the offerings at local furniture stores, my husband and I decided to order this island from Overstock to hold us over until we decide to build a permanent island in a few years. It's a good size, and I really like all of the storage - it's very customizable. It ships in three very heavy boxes, so be aware of that, but was very simple to put together. The only issue we had is the doors didn't line up exactly on the cupboard, which my husband was able to adjust. The drawers fit a cutlery tray perfectly, and work well, and the leaf allows us to place two counter-height stools for additional seating. Overall, it's provided some much needed counter and storage space and I'm very happy with this purchase.
