For the price, I expected for this piece to be a higher quality. It if so rickety and the wood if so flawed (can see seams where the wood is manufactured poorly and the paint is very uneven - not white washed). The instructions for assembly were confusing. My husband is a carpenter and we had a difficult time putting it together. It took us two hours. If it wouldn't have been a chore to return this, we would have. We are going to repaint it and my husband said he will use wood glue to reinforce it so that we can use it for the intended purpose - to hold cans in our kitchen. I would encourage you to check out **** before purchasing this and I think that **** sells the worst quality furniture! Based on the reviews, I wasn't expecting high quality but this is pretty ridiculous! This piece is worth more like $** tops.
