Very nice appearance: beveled doors, and the clean, semi-gloss white brightens up my kitchen. The cabinet is sturdy, and roomier than I thought it would be. Although I didn't find it necessary, I liked that the materials are already included in case the purchaser wishes to anchor the cabinet to the wall against which it will stand.
I'm a little old lady, and was apprehensive about assembling it by myself, but the instructions were clear with every step illustrated, and it went together quickly and tightly. The only difficulty I had was getting the package from the front porch into the kitchen: it was around seven feet long, and VERY HEAVY, partly because it was so well protected from potential damage in transit. I had the help of a small dolly, but a couple of healthy grandsons would have been nice, too.
The only problem I had was the cabinet topper. It was my mistake of putting the two thin boards on the back side. I was thinking the boards were white on both sides putting them in on the outside. They were not and I had the bare wood showing on the inside and I had the back board on with nails. No problem; unscrewed with drill bit from outside and flip them in the right way, whew.
Received condition: Overall, all the pieces were in very good condition. Packaging was solid and the cardboard strength was good enough to keep most external protrusions to a minimum. The only damage was a slight dent into the beveled edge of one of the front doors. But it didn't mar the paint so no touch-up was necessary. Assembly proceeded.
Assembly: The assembly was straight-forward. With the help of a little Black & Decker Lithium powered screwdriver, I was able to make short work of the process. Make sure not to use a high-torque device or you will end up stripping out the wood and be up crap creek without a paddle. A large flat area is required so I just used the kitchen floor. All the holes lined up fine so the entire frame went together without a hitch. A couple of key things to note when installing the thin backing:
1. I use #4x1/2" screws instead of the included nails. The nails always work loose over time, leaving the backing pretty much worthless. The screws will stay in for the life of the cabinet, usually. Use the type with a round head and flat underside head. That way they hold the material better without splitting into it. Two packages of 16 screws sell for $2.36 at Home Depot. That's where I got mine and 32 screws are plenty for one cabinet.
2. There is no line or instructions for attaching the backing to the middle support shelf. But there should be. So, get a long straight edge, lay the cabinet frame down on its front side, position the backing correctly height-wise, push slightly off to one side and mark a center for the support shelf position on one side, then push other direction and mark a center line on the other side. Use the straight edge to connect the two center marks together to get the line for screw/nail placement. Reposition the backing to the correct location and start attaching with the nails (or screws if you're like me).
Attachment of the front doors was pretty easy, even for one person. Pay attention to the pictures to get the correct parts installed in the correct positions and it will go without a hitch. The pre-drilled holes work pretty well. So the door installation went pretty easy. I haven't made any adjustments to the doors yet but there appears to be slight adjustments for how far the stick out forward and then also some adjustments for positioning when closed.
There is indeed a gap between the two doors at the center. It's approximately ¼". Easy to see through. But it doesn't really make any difference so I don't care. The internal dimensions are pretty roomy so it will hold lots of stuff. The supports for the adjustable shelves are the cheap little plastic parts that I wouldn't rely on for anything. I replaced them with the metal ones (5mm version) available through Amazon or also available at Home Depot or Lowes. These are much stronger and you won't have to worry about them becoming brittle over time and breaking.
At this point in time, these cabinets are priced at $200. For that price point, I would expect much better quality hinges, metal supports for shelves, and screws for the backing material. As they are, the price should be closer to $125. Or maybe $150 with the free Prime shipping.
