FIrst let me say, this was a terrific value. I saw it on other sites for 70 % more. I love the look of it, the color shades of the drawers and contrast with the black frame. It was easy to assemble. And the extra storage comes in handy. It is not "heavy duty", but that is not why I bought it. I am sure it will last for years with the use and purpose I want it for.
