we really needed extra storage in the kitchen, we use it for baby food and stuff. it is really not bad, it looks about like we expected, and we really benefited from the extra storage. all in all we were pleased with the whole experience. delivery was pretty quick - putting it together was fairly simple. I would recommend really looking at the size so that you know what to expect. we did, so we were not surprised, but to someone not paying attention it might look smaller than the picture portrays.
