Searched for a year to find the right island for my tiny kitchen and tiny budget. I am thrilled with this one. The wheels make the cart versatile - I can roll it out for a baking project that requires a large work surface or store it against the wall for more floor space. However, prepare yourself for the assembly instructions. They're diagrams with no words. You may be doing four steps in one diagram, but there is no suggestion as to which is first. Get a friend to help too, because you'll appreciate having someone to laugh with as you assemble. The free shipping was a huge bonus, the cart arrived here in good shape, very quickly, and we found that all the necessary parts were included.
