This is a great piece. Its sturdy, heavy, and well put together, it just wasn't exactly what I was looking for. It is not really white, it's more of a cream, almost yellow color. And there is a lot of silver painted on it, more than you can tell from the picture. Also delivery was a pain. I waited almost 6 weeks to get it delivered! And after all of that I am just going to end up selling it or giving it away as color wise it doesn't match my dining room. Just make sure it is the color you want before buying, quality wise you won't be disappointed.
I purchased one cabinet with glass and one with solid panels. They stack very nicely but the color (white) is slightly off on them. One is much yellower than the other. I bought them about 5 months apart and in my dining room the lighting isn't very good so you can't notice, but if you have an open dining you will be able to notice
Go ahead and take the chance on this item. You won't be disappointed. It takes a little time to put together but it's well worth the effort. I'm amazed at how good the price was for such a quality product too. I was a little nervous buying something I couldn't really see close up but the overstock pictures and description were very accurate. I could not be more satisfied. I later changed the knobs on the buffet to give a little more color and design but that didn't cost much and it was well worth the addition. I bought yellow, red and blue artsy type of door knobs from a designer store.
Overall, I'm pleased with this purchase, though it doesn't deserve 5 stars. The cabinet comes in a long box, wasn't too difficult to assemble. The parts were well marked. It did take a while to assemble, but I assembled it, by myself, in under 2 hours with a basic screwdriver. Positives: the cabinet (other than the back) is made of nice pine wood. The honey finish is a nice deep color. The shelves are adjustable and sturdy. The construction uses dowels, but also metal inserts that turn around screws to secure the joints - resulting in a sturdy cabinet. I did add some carpenters' glue to each of the dowels to enhance sturdiness. Negatives: the back is just a cardboard-like-substance hooked together on the back with strapping tape (not attractive or sturdy), but it works and has a nice pattern - so looking into the cabinet, it doesn't look as cheap as it is. Also, there were some places where the wood was dinged and then filled in with yellow wood putty and sanded smooth - but the color of the putty doesn' t match the stain, so the filled in spots are quite obvious (and some of these places were on the outside front of the cabinet). Overall - it holds more than you think it would, it is sturdy on carpet, it looks nice and IS NOT presswood - it is real wood (except for the back). I'm glad we purchased it. It is perfect in our kitchen.
