The storage unit was easy to put together. It looks just like the picture. The draws are as sturdy as you would expect from wicker, this means not meant for very heavy objects. There is some space between the bottom and side of the draw, so if you put small items in the draw, they could possibly fall out. Overallit it is nice unit for a casual setting. I wanted something not too big or expensive, to put in an area right next to the kitchen, to keep junk off the table, and this fits the bill.
