My husband and I have looked for a long time for the right kitchen cart and fell in love with this one. It is functional with lots of storage space and opens up to fit stools under a section of it. However, I will tell you the truth about putting it together ! It is difficult because some of the sections did not line up correctly. My husband who is familiar with building and carpentry work, did buy and use wood glue along with the enclosed screws because the screws were too short and he believed the cart would not be strong enough without the glue. He also went to the hardware store and bought longer screws and threw away the ones that came in the kit. Of course, we want this kitchen cart to last us a long time and it is beautiful and we love having it. Just needs a little more work putting it together than what we read previous to buying it. No regrets ... the work is finished and it is a great kitchen cart.
