This buffet is more than I expected for the price. Once it's all put together, it's a really sturdy piece. The color is a beautiful rich red in a semi gloss finish. Finish is very even and pristine. I love the fact that the shelves are divided by the center panel and can be adjusted independently. Even the drawers are nice since the bottoms are also red and there's stoppers to prevent them from being pulled out to far. The back panel is red as well. This unit holds more than it looks. I'm using it as a liquor cabinet and have some miscellaneous bar supplies in it as well. I still have room left! I put this together myself, it took about 3 hours. With two people it would go a little quicker. Getting the doors on with one person is the hardest part. Having put furniture together before, I have a technique, but two people is easier. The pieces all fit together exceptionally well. I love this buffet!
Absolutely beautiful buffet table. Very nice color. Took 1.5 hour to put together. Very good direction an assembly. Great value for price looks much more expensive
The Zarina buffet table is an excellent value, attractive and sturdy, and a nice addition to my dining room. It comes in a large box and is very heavy. You will need help putting it together. There are gazillions of screws and bolts and nuts and while everything is labeled and well packaged, it is a time consuming process. It took two people about three hours to finish. The only reason I rated four stars instead of five is because that the screws are visible on the second shelf and you will need to add a runner or sit something over them to cover them up. I'm not sure why they did not use recessed screws with covers, but they didn't and the screws end up quite visible. However, I still love the clean look of the piece and the functionality. The storage compartments behind the doors are room and do not have shelves so you can sit large or tall items in them. The wine rack is completely removable so if you prefer you can leave it out and display your nice dishes there. I would buy it again.
Beautiful piece. Certainly doesn't look cheap and was a good value. Took a couple hours to assemble with 2 people. Received in timely manner in perfect condition. Fairly heavy to bring in from the porch when delivered, but that's not a bad thing. But steps 10, 11, 12, and 13 had problems (out of 14 total steps). Step 10- Drilled holes to go through side panels of wine rack (E) to beam attached under buffet top (A) were not created on beam (A) so we could not secure screws. Fortunately, I believe this is just added support to keep the top in place. Life goes on without this extra step. Step 11- as you can see, there is no back board. We were sent the parts for this step, but there were no pre-drilled holes in the perimeter of the back of the buffet (A and D) to secure the back panels (G) with. Step 12- cabinet doors (F) are warped at the bottom. So much so that they won't lay completely flush when shut. We hoped that this would be solved by installing the magnetic plates/bars (8) which are possibly strong enough to reverse the outward bend when shut. However, when secured, the bar and the plate do not line up (this can be seen in picture taken from inside the buffet, which was able to be done since back panels were not able to be secured with the provided pieces). Step 13- Finally, the shelf support divets (9), when put in desired locations, are not parallel between piece D and E, so shelves (G) wobble and do not lay flat. All in all, most of this can be handled when you spend the extra time and money on different materials (ex. Longer screws and a small platform to place under piece 8 so the magnet bar and plate can line up correctly & possibly using wood glue to secure the backboards), so we give it four stars. The furniture itself is well-made and the instructions are easy to understand. It fits perfectly in our dining room and home overall. Other reviewers did not seem to have these issues which leads me to believe we just got the oddball. But if you too run into these complications don't expect to be able to use it for anything besides putting things in the drawers, on top of the buffet, or in the wine racks (and possibly using the cabinet spaces without the shelves to store something tall, like a vase). Hope this helps!
