This movable island was "just right" as Goldilocks would say. Not too big and not too small. It went together in a fairly short amount of time and is a durable piece. The directions could have been better but common sense is all it takes. The drawer isn't sturdy enough for anything heavy but works well for potholders. I use the open shelving for onions and potatoes so they don't become "science projects". I got what I wanted and needed for a reasonable price. - Thanks Overstock !!
