Really cool look! My husband and I put it together in less than an hour. Great product for the price. Sturdy and unique. Cool color and black distressing.
This RTA product features typical assembly techniques I've seen on better products using composite material. Holes for shelves give great flexibility for any configuration you might want. The shelves do not extend to the back, but this makes cleaning them, if necessary easy, without scuffing the back if a change in configuration is needed. The 'wrap' material is a more durable, and finished looking, than usual melamine material. The touch-up marker (For the black unit) is icing on the cake, although with the composite material being wrapped in most areas, should not be needed with normal usage. A plus for me, is that the product is manufactured in North America!
This is a stunning addition to any room. However, it is extremely heavy and not easy to assemble. Carefully check all the pieces for damage. The main side piece arrived cracked but the packaging had no damage at all. Also, some of the corners are a little bashed. Overstock replaced my damaged pieces with no problem. Again, thank you Customer Service! The black outer frame goes together well, but inserting the boxes is the issue. They dimensions are not all the same when finished and the don't go easily into the designated spots. So, when the instructions state to use the black cover dots on the frame, DON'T. The instructions also state not to tighten the cam bolts until the piece is assembled. That means when the boxes are inserted. Not clearly stated. Put felt or other furniture moving assists on the bottom when you build it. Do attach it to the wall. I could kill someone or a pet if it came down, say, in an earthquake. I love the look, function and sturdiness, but would not purchase again.
