I received the wicker/metal chest within five days. It arrived in perfect condition. I did enlist the help of a friend in the assembly -- so it was finished within an hour. My kitchen is extremely small but had one rather long wall which is where I placed the chest. My concern was that it would take up too much space in depth, but that was not a problem. I definitely would recommend it to anyone who had need of extra storage space for items that are not too heavy, although it is well balanced.
