I purchased this cart to keep in my hall storage closet to use when I have to move items like my china, KitchenAid mixer, and flatware, etc. to my kitchen and/or dining room when I'm ready to entertain since my kitchen is small on storage space. Cart was very easy to put together. I'm over 50 and it took about 20 minutes to finish. It rolls very easily and is sturdy enough to hold heavy items like the KitchenAid mixer. 2 of the wheels lock and I put those wheels on the same side. Just a click with your foot and wheel locks and unlocks. Very happy with price and purchase.
I received my island in two large boxes last night. I spent about 1.5 hrs putting it together by myself. I first laid all the pieces out to make sure they came in-tact. They were excellent (one small knick on bottom flat piece, no biggie). The instructions took me a second to figure out, otherwise I probably would have finished quicker. There were only two problems of note during the construction. 1. The base pieces holes didn't line up perfectly, but with help from children, I was able to push, while they dropped the screw in. 2. The doors on one side don't close perfectly, but they do close. I purchased new knobs - but for some reason in two places they won't go flush. I did needed adult assistance taking it from my garage, where I was assembling, into the kitchen. It's definitely a heavy piece. It doesn't seem like it would be that heavy - until you go to lift it by yourself. I ended up painting the bottom and staining the top. The colors just didn't match my kitchen. The color is antique WHITE. It's not off white...it's white - with a few areas of distress. The top is gorgeous, just too light for my kitchen décor - and didn't flow with the pieces already there. Over all, I like the piece, had no real issues and would recommend this purchase for a quick, fairly inexpensive, addition to your kitchen. Could even use as a side table in dinning area.
