Gorgeous cabinet! Extremely heavy, solid wood, packed with extreme care, which is how I know the scratch on the top was already there before they shipped it. We pretty much had to tear down the 2 shipping boxes, just to get it unpacked, and as a heavy item, it really wasn't worth shipping back for the small defect. Customer service gave me some money back to compensate, plus the number for the manufacturer so I can see if they will send me some of the gold paint to retouch the area. What a gorgeous way to store all those shoes that accumulate around the doorway! It holds quit a few, about 15-20 pair, depending on the size.
