I really do love this piece now that I am completely finished with it, but getting it assembled was a bit of an ordeal. My husband and I have many years of combined experience putting together flat pack items and this was one of the most poorly illustrated and guided. Also, the premounted drawer sliders which were not part of our assembly tasks were installed wrong and had to be removed and reset for the drawers to operate properly. That aside, it is a sturdy and adorable finished piece with nice quality hardwood used in its manufacture. The cherry stain was uniform, if you're into that... I painted mine a wonderful charcoal gray to add an accent color to my kitchen. I use it as a breakfast bar for the coffee maker, toaster, tea bags and filters, thermoses, etc and there is even room for some of my heavier stock pots in the very bottom shelf of the unit. The stainless steel top is beautiful and the hardware that came with the item is attractive, although I substituted my own drawer pulls to match cabinetry elsewhere in the kitchen. If I had paid top dollar I would probably be more tweaked out about the drawer construction glitch but considering it was a value price and came with free shipping I really can't complain.
