My bar came nice and quickly after I ordered, it was pretty simple to put together with good instructions. Only things I don't like about it are that it smells terrible like chemicals... it stank up my whole house for a few days. Now a couple weeks later it still smells every time I open it. The other thing I don't like is the fake stone top feels rough when I run my hand over it, not at all like what a polished stone top would really feel like. I might find a piece of glass or something to go on the top. Overall I'm pretty happy with it though. It's larger than I thought it would be, and it holds plenty of liquor and wine bottles, as well as 5 rows to hang stemware from.
This cabinet is working out just great. I did not put the dividers in the bottom compartments and I took the wine glass racks out of the top compartment. It now holds all of my liquor bottles. It's a perfect bar cabinet. Relatively easy to put together and very sturdy. Really needed this.
We love the look of this piece, and it fits our high end home. however, one of the doors seems to not be hung correctly, so it isn't flush in front. We also have gotten two chips in the front part of the glass top. None of the bottles from the doors rattle against this thick piece of glass, so we have no idea how it has chipped, but it's very disappointing, as you see them immediately upon opening.
This is a very nice and sturdy bar cabinet (once all installation steps are completed) A few of the installation steps aren't spelled out exactly. So a few times you have to use your brain and think of it like a puzzle. Mainly When you are attaching the back you have to flip it in a certain direction to get the angle needed to attach it. I put it together alone and took my time with it. Okay, I really took my time with it. Watching TV etc.. but it took me 3 1/2 hours to put together. If I had to put together another one and I really focused I could probably get it together in under 3 hours. 2 hours if I had an extra hand. The toughest part about the installation was attaching the doors. If you have someone to hold the doors while you screw it in you will complete the task much faster. The door seams are a TAD off but that is probably because I didn't have anyone hold the doors. So get an extra set of hands. Tools needed. I used a drill a few times but a battery powered screw driver really helped me out on this one. If I had to screw everything in by hand it probably would have taken another half hour to complete. There are a lot things to screw into place. The battery powered screw driver worked nicely because they aren't overly powerful so I didn't damage the wood. Quality is good. It is wood that is painted silver. Photos don't really show that in great detail. I was worried about the legs but once I had everything put together it is very sturdy. They do provide you with wires / brackets to attach to wall for safety. But it stands upright nicely and has weight to it. Around 100 pounds. Packaging was good. The mirror and tempered glass shelf is packaged in a box that is very well protected. You will need some room to put this together there are a lot of parts, but again if you take your time, your patience will be rewarded. Cheers.
