I bought two of these storage cabinet. I assembled the first one in less than an hour, and had the second one together in about 30 minutes.The handles are plastic, so I went to a local hardware store and bought two similar-looking handles made from brushed-metal for about $3 a piece, and those work really well. This is a very smart purchase. I have three kids and entry way used to be such a mess. I bought this so now they can have a central detailed organized storage for their shoes. Works out great! This is now close to my front door and helps out a lot of my shoe situation with the kids.
