Rated 1 out of 5Â by Tony Poor quality control and construction
We bought several different types of these, all from the same manufacturer. Many of them had dings hidden by the cardboard retaining straps. But what bothered me most was the sloppy construction work. The nylon corner braces were sometimes only half attached, and I had to reattach some of them. WORST, though, was the messy glue work. There were some thick gobs of hardened glue on one or two of the door interiors, and on some there were spots where the assemblers had gotten glue on the front of the door or carcase and had attempted to wipe it off, unsuccessfully... I could tell it was there because even with prep sanding, the stain did not take in spots!
I am NOT happy with these cabinets, and I would not recommend them to anyone unless you intend to paint them vice staining them. Even then, you need to be happy with occasional dinged-up fronts, from the factory. Home Depot, these were a major disappointment.
(By the way, I haven't finished staining them yet, so I have no idea how many more problems I will find. GRRRRRR!!!)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dhenry Great value allowing creativity and customization
My rather large kitchen had a lot of wasted space and no pantry. So, I purchased several of these unfinished cabinets from this line to add a pantry and create a more appealing and efficient office space. Word of caution: use a base primer if you will be painting the cabinets in a light color. Mine are starting to "yellow" through the white paint. I modified the lower cabinet space of the pantry for pull-out shelves for a printer and turn table converter. The upper portion of the pantry is customized; added a stained glass cabinet door. Molding was added to the tops of the cabinets to give them a more finished look. Base cabinets from this line were also used for the lower units of custom designed book shelves in the family room. I couldn't be happier with my kitchen, new office and upgraded the family room - the center of this older home. I will also be purchasing items in this line to remodel my bathrooms with new vanities and linen closets (pantry cabinet) in the near future. Remember: be creative! You can - with this very economical line!

Quailty was just as I expected.. needed to match the stain with stock cabinets and they worked out well.

My son-in-law installed the cabinet with no problems. The direction the door opened was changed. I then sanded, primed and painted the cabinet to match the existing cabinets in my 1954 ranch house. I am going to purchase the 18" wide cabinet and the over the refrigerator cabinet to give the refrigerator a built in look. I put beadboard on the side since that is the product that was on the walls. It looks like it has always been there. I have had my cabinet over a year and it is very sturdy. No problems with the plastic shelf supports and it has canned goods on the shelves. I purchased a rack for the bottom and it stores my baking pans.

We purchased two of these cabinets to use as pantries in our 1940's remodeled 900 sq. ft. home. With space at a premium and no storage to speak of we wanted something stylish, roomy and durable. These cabinets met all our requirements. The wood finish is lovely and took stain extremely well - only a light sanding was needed. Installation was fast and easy. The cabinets are well made and very sturdy. We added an additional shelf to each upper half and changed out the plastic clips for metal ones - just a precaution since we are storing heavy canned goods on the shelves. Very pleased with the product and the results we achieved. Recommended for all your storage needs.
