This arrived today via UPS. The driver was kind enough to wait while I unwrapped it to make sure there was no damage or defect. It was packed very well, and despite a large rip in the bottom corner of the box, it was in perfect condition. It is very pretty, and fits perfectly in the little corner I bought it for. Overall, I think it was a little pricey for the quality, meaning it ain't Stickley, but it is attractive, very sturdy, and the finish and front decoration are lovely! The front is not metal, but just a raised design on the wood. Nevertheless, I am pleased with the appearance. If you are looking for a unique accent piece, you will be pleased with this cabinet.
