Sturdy, functional, easy to assemble
on October 23, 2009
I bought two of these 6-cube organizers for my closet. I wanted something more substantial than plastic, a solid surface rather than wire, less expensive than wood, and the ability to have drawers or use them as open storage. They're perfect for sweaters, t-shirts, shorts, sweatshirts, purses, etc. The cubes are a good size - not too big so you don't have wasted space and not too small for bulkier sweaters or sweatshirts. With the cute drawers you can buy separately, they're also great for storing socks, hats, gloves, scarves. I could see how they'd be great organizers for people who do crafts, or for kids toys, office supplies, laundry supplies, linens, bathroom supplies. And they seem sturdy enough for books as well. They were easy to put together once I figured out how things connect together. It took me less than 30 minutes for the first one, and maybe 15 for the second. I did use a power drill with a driver bit for the screws, but that's because I'm lazy and it's faster that way. Nailing the cardboard backing on took more time than expected because there are so many small nails to hold the pieces in place, but that does make the backings sturdier. All the pre-drilled holes lined up correctly, all the dowels fit properly. The plastic screw covers stay on if you tap them with a hammer to set them in place. It is laminate on particle-board, so you aren't getting fine furniture, but these are great for getting the most out of your closet space. I'll definitely be buying more of these or some of the other cube configurations for my other closets.
