This piece looks even better in person than it does in the pictures - a rarity with lower-end furniture. The knobs and cup pulls are a beautiful dark pewter and have some really nice detailing that doesn't show well in the pictures. The actual color of the piece is a pleasant ivory with very nicely done dark gray antiquing. It really looks like a handmade piece, not something that arrived in pieces. Speaking of the pieces, it was easy to put together and the instructions were easy to follow. It looks like a piece you'd find a a high-end store for a LOT more money.
I really enjoy how this cabinet turned out. I was looking for something to hold towels, cleaning supplies and other bathroom items. I didn't want an 'over the toilet' hutch and shelves wouldn't have been sufficient. But there's a huge storage space between my bathroom and living and I knew it would be perfect for a linen cabinet. I just needed to find the right one. This cabinet is it! My items arrived without incident or damage. I make a point of laying out and verifying all parts and pieces of hardware on anything I have to assemble. Everything I needed was there. Instructions recommend 2 people but I was able to do it by myself. I admit to working on it over several days because I'm still unpacking. But I also took the time to apply Gorilla wood glue and Gorilla Super Glue as an added step. This isn't the kind of thing I want to have to keep 'tightening up' over the coming months or years. Which is typical of so many 'needs assembly' furniture items. And the glue just adds that extra assurance and security that parts and pieces stay tight and connected. You definitely want to take the time to make sure the base is leveled. I'm in an apartment so imperfections in the floor are to be expected. There are screws on the feet of the base that can be adjusted. Take your time and make sure it's leveled front to back and side to side. If you've got that set and secure....anything you add on top will also be level. At 71 inches tall...it's a great height for me as well. I didn't want anything that was so tall that I'd need a step stool every time I wanted to put something on top of it. My interior is grey & white so the color works. But it would have been nice to have other color options.....even if it's 'Nantucket' style. A pale or sky blue perhaps. Just something other than white. I would also like to find different hardware for the doors and drawer. What they have works but a pop of color somewhere is ideal for me. That's proving a little difficult because the provided knobs come with a detached screw that you insert into the knob...and most knobs on the market have the screw built in and you secure it with a bolt from the back. Other than that....I'm thrilled with this piece overall. It took me a long time to find just the right cabinet.....right height, right size , right look, right price. And ordering online is always a risk. I'm glad I took the leap on this one.
