Ok, for me, this just happened to be the perfect table. I needed something in the kitchen as a "catch all" but I wanted it to be tall enough to tuck my dog's food and water bowl underneath, and then the shelves with the baskets just made this a home run. It came packaged pretty well; everything tucked in with styrofoam safely. It was super easy to put together, took my daughter reading the instructions while my husband put in the nuts and bolts about 15 minutes and it was all together, no hassle. It's really heavy, the wicker baskets are surprisingly heavy, very sturdy...I just can't be more over the moon about this product! Love, love, love it, and so glad I paid the little extra for it since it is EXACTLY what I was looking for, and I can't be happier. Every single person that's seen it has remarked about the quality and heaviness of the piece, and that's it's not some lightweight piece of junk. This is a winner winner for my family!
