The wood is high quality and very attractive. We have an open area leading from house to garage between 2 doors. Because we do not have a closet on first floor of house we wanted a way to turn that open area into storage coat closet. But we also wanted it to look nice since its a common walkway to enter exit the house. It is sturdy and very pretty. It took a bit to cut to size and assemble but went together nicely and provides a good amount of organizational storage space.
