Like other reviewers stated, the bottom of the cabinet portion feels flimsy, so don't put your Kitchen Aid stand mixer in there. The wood is a bit soft and the whole thing is somewhat tricky to assemble, and this is from a guy (me) that had built carts and trolleys out of sheets of plywood. At one point, while trying to hold the pieces together so I could line the screw up with the holes, one of the panels tipped over and smashed my foot. In other words, it's more of a two-person job. I didn't really care for the flat/matt paint finish as it is easily scuffed, but it would be quite easy to paint over it with the color of your choice, which is what I'm thinking about doing. One of the vertical pieces cracked during shipping, but I was able to repair it with my woodworking tools. The whole thing is sturdy enough to hold a large microwave oven, although I don't recommend wheeling it around too much as it may fall apart. I don't regret the purchase as I don't see anything else out there (on the web) that has the same layout (a drawer, open shelf, and a cabinet) and with similar dimensions, although I think it should be priced below $100 base on the quality of the material.
