my apartment's kitchen has very few cabinets so i needed something to add more storage & counter space. just moved across the country so i didn't want to spend a ton of money... this was perfect for the price and i like the classy colors. the quality of the wood (especially the particle board used for the drawer) is not the best but it's good value for the price. some pieces came with markings on them.. almost like a long dent... but no scratches, and they were pieces that would not be visible anyway (i faced the 'dented' side towards the inside of the cabinet.) the instructions say you need two people to assemble but i was able to put it together myself with a little bit of creative balancing. the hardware comes with an allen wrench as well, which is helpful. i have one complaint about the directions.... it's 100% impossible to put the rolling casters on while the cart is upside down (like most products like this, you build it upside down then flip it over) because they don't 'click' in, they just sit inside the holes of the legs. so if you put the casters in & attempt to turn the cart right-side-up, they just fall out. i guess this is where having another person around would've been helpful, to slip the casters in while the other person held the cart up off the ground, while right-side-up. i had to turn it right-side-up, put one of the lockable casters on (needs to be locked otherwise it just rolls away when you raise the cart to slip a non-lockable one underneath the second leg) put a non-locking one on the same side, and repeat for the other side. it did take a couple tries to get the casters into the legs. once it was done i was absolutely loved it. it would've been great if the shelves were adjustable but again, for the price, i understand. provides plenty of storage space and i really like the solid wood top. i do wish it weren't finished with a clear coat though - i'd much rather have a real butcher-block type top that's like a cutting board. i'm afraid that if i use a knife on it i'll chip away at the clear coat, which means flakes of clear coat will get into my food. overall, really good buy for the price!
