I purchased this item to give me additional storage space after moving to a small apartment. Generally, I am pleased with it. The drawer is not very sturdy which was a disappointment. It has a cardboard bottom--I was hoping to use the drawer for silverware and it would not hold the weight. I have all my dish towels/clothes in it which works but that was not the intended purpose. The only other major issue I had was the instructions were extremely vague and difficult to follow. The pictures in the instruction booklet were not detailed at all, hard to determine which piece was which and many of the pieces were not labeled with a number or letter to correspond to the instructions. I did get it together, had to re-do the drawer a couple times but it is working now. I love the fact that the unit had electrical plugs--I put a glass cutting board on the top and have my coffee pot and toaster. I would recommend it with the understanding that assembly is not for a rookie and the drawer is meant for very light weight items.
