I have a usable vanity
on May 24, 2013
It came beautifully packaged, well protected all the parts intact. To shorten this review, Ill go over the parts one at a time:
Mirror: Arrived intact, attachment holes lined up really well with the vanity body
Vanity: LOTS OF SPACE!!!, clean lines, draws pull out easily, unit is wide enough to fit ALL my stuff but not bulky. The legs of the vanity are screwed into the MDF BASE, so when your'e gently trying to get it right side up (it comes table side down)...that soft creaking sound, is the wooden leg separating itself from the MDF body. I had to glue mine back together and reinforce it with a screw.
Stool: I think I drew the short straw here. One of the legs would not fit into the space. I unscrewed the other three legs and shuffled them around to make sure that it was not just a fluke...uhm....No. I had to sand the sides of the slot down to allow the leg to fit into the space, only to realize that one of the other legs was too SHORT! (insert hysterical screaming here!)
I used a furniture pad to even it out. It should be ok? Nope! The stool is unsteady. I sat on it (5'11, 138 lbs) pushed back to get up...then heard the soft creak of the leg separating from the body. I put the stool aside in favor of another piece I had in the house.
All in all, I got a stool-less vanity....Ill take it! Won't buy it again though, but its serves it purpose
