Arrived in beautiful shape. My husband had this island put together in no time at all, including the time to remove from the boxes to finish it took 4 hours, What a wonderful addition to my kitchen! Ample storage, I use the shelfs for my cookbooks which is very handy. The granite top is very heavy, our neighbor had to help lift it on top. Everyone who has seen it loves it! One friend thought we had it built into our kitchen, now that is a great product!
