First, the seller responded very quickly to my request for a small missing part - excellent customer service experience. The product arrived in good condition . My husband who is very experienced in craftsmanship found several structural issues such as a missing hole for one of the screws. Because he is able to think through the process from his experience, he was able to adjust to address the issue. There were some issues with things not being exactly square once assembled so there are some gaps where a higher quality item would not necessarily have. Because the material that the cart is made of is thin flakeboard you MUST be careful when assembling and not rush through or manhandle the assembly in order to preserve the integrity of the piece. It took my husband a solid 2 hours to slowly, methodically, and carefully put this cart together. It is a very cute finished product, it works for my personal needs, but it is not made to be a major part of one's kitchen that gets used heavily or by individuals who are not aware of its delicate nature. Overall, for the price paid it is certainly worth the time, effort, and expense , keeping in mind my own personal observations of its intended use.
I bought this cart to store extra bar ware glasses etc under the stairs. It’s very well made for the price. I won’t be using it in the kitchen or opening drawers everyday. It does not have drawer glides so it may not be great for heavy everyday use. Seems small to be an “island” as advertised. But a coffee bar would be perfect. I’m very happy with it. Can’t beat the price!
