Rated 1 out of 5Â by MrsD2014 very disappointed
We ordered this item on May 26, it took until 7/26/2014 for delivery because it was so popular it was backordered. Well obviously there was a mass production on it to make up some time, the faux wood is warped, the drawers don't line up, nor do they fit, the predrilled holes were too deep and the dowel rods disappeared, assembly was horrible. My room is full of Martha Stewart craft furniture that I love. And we are pro's at putting it together, so I can't even blame it on operational error. I am amazed that this piece is even from the same line. I am extremely disappointed, especially since waiting 2 months for the piece to arrive. I would recommend every piece in her collection except this one, I would steer clear, there are two thin unsteady frames that have to be put together to form the two sides for drawers and it did not seem stable enough to do that job, and it did not disappoint, it couldn't.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by bel9701 Exactly what I was looking for
I purchased four of the large pieces and quite a few paper cubbies. My scrapbooking room looks beautiful and now all my stuff is organized and usable. The assembly was not difficult, but it was very time consuming. Also they package in a ton of styrofoam. Would be nice for them to find more eco-friendly packaging materials.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ksatur Scrapbooking base is my new music cabinet!
I looked for a cabinet that would sit in my living room near my baby grand piano and hold my music and music supplies. The scrapbooking base filled the bill with all its drawers.
Getting the three boxes with all the parts was a little overwhelming, but I decided to go slow. It wasn't too bad. First I inventoried the parts, then put together the main structure of the cabinets, then the drawers. It went very quickly. I did everything with my regular screwdriver.
There is an error in the instructions on page 22. There are three illustrations on this page. Sides B1 and C1 switch places in the third illustration---that third illustration is the one that you want! Otherwise, the drawer slides won't line up with the predrilled. I know I had to take it apart! If you follow the pictures carefully it goes together well.
Overall I love the cabinet. I would definitely recommend it. The assembly is not bad, just takes some time, but worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Summer77 Get tons of compliments on this one
I ordered the grey cabinet. The color is great and represented well on the website. It is a perfect light grey.
It did take some time to put it together but the quality is great. I purchased new hardware for it, which makes it look a little classier. I am currently using it as an island. The top makes a great work surface.
I get tons of compliments on it.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by hgrutsch Be prepared to spend a day assembling
Finished product not terrible. Comes in literally 123 pieces...have to install 4 drawer slide per drawer. Super labor intensive, and I feel like because it was not professionally assembled, finished product was of lesser quality than one I could have purchased locally for the same amount of money.
