The cabinet itself is exquisite.The finish is not bright red shiny lacquer, it has a patina almost aged leather like and a muted red, almost burgandy. It is a quality piece and one would assume that it is very expensive. The only reason I gave the appearance 4 stars, is that I expected fire engine red, but this red wine color blends very nicely with my dark wood and olive colors. I love it.
I put it together by myself in 1.5 hours (give and take) and it went pretty smoothly. The drawers take less time if you have another hand, but the pictures (no words) are detailed and make assembly easy. Before buying this I did some looking around and I must say that this drawer is probably the best looking all around. I bought it for my 2.5 yr old daughter's bedroom and it looks and works out great! It seems sturdy enough but like all furniture it'll wear and aged the more you use it. I am not looking to pass this piece of furniture down generation after generation, so for the looks and price and the sturdiness right now, I'm happy with it and will recommend it.
