A nice, handsome and generous piece. Looking at it one would never guess it is holding a vast amount of shoes. Living in a small apartment, exact dimensions are imperative, and this piece does not disappoint, fitting precisely in the nook I intended it for, while also providing a lovely display for various items on top. Assembling solo was difficult do to the larger pieces and slightly inaccurate directions. But worth it once you decipher them. Get a friend to help. Really loving this piece.
The finished piece is just as nice as the pictures show online. I have already received compliments on he piece. However, I do agree with all of the previous reviews that it takes quite a bit of time to assemble - I would say 5-6 hours. I was able to assemble completely solo, though. The drawers are much more shallow than they show too. The face of the drawers is about 1.5-2" higher than the actual drawer itself. The price of this item changes a lot and consistently goes on sale! Unfortunately, I didn't know that when I bought it for around ***, and then about 2 weeks later, it was almost *** cheaper. Watch the item for awhile before forking out the close to *** .
I was super hesitant to purchase this because I felt like some of the complaints I read were worrisome. Here's the thing, I was able to out this thing together easily but I actually enjoy assembling furniture and do it frequently. If that's not your thing, i would high suggest getting something easier to put together. My only negative feedback is that it was shorter than I expected but that's my error not the manufacturers. It looks nice... it's extremely sturdy... The one comment I saw about not being able to remove the drawers.... actually you can just loosen the screws on the side and the drawers will easily slide off. The unit is HEAVY but you can assemble it solo if you have experience with building furniture.
