So I read the reviews that others stated that this piece stored more than they expected, so I purchased this to serve as a temporary buffet/storage unit for my chrystal and china until I can afford to redecorate the entire living / dining room combination. I fully expected to put the key pieces in this unit and then store the balance in the kitchen. This piece is massive in the storage department. To give you an idea, I was able to store 36 ea. chrystal water, wine and champagne goblets, 12 place settings each of my china which includes dinner plates, salad plates, cup/saucer and bread plate, 12 soup bowls of my china, 12 accent plates, 2 serving platters, a gravy boat, cream and sugar and 2 vegetable serving bowls (WOW!). I stored all of this in a cute decorative way without cramming things in...I'm so pleasantly surprised! And what's even nicer is that it doesn't seem that big from the outside, it is the perfect buffet size/height and didn't overcrowd my table in what I would consider to be a small dining room. I highly recommend this piece. I (a girl) was also able to assemble it in just 2 hours, but this was with a 19 mos. old "helping" AND using a manual screwdriver. If you switched over to a cordless drill for assembly you could do this in no time!
