Rated 5 out of 5★ by Photini1967 Exceeds Expectations! My husband has been assembling furniture for our new home. He had this put up by the time I was out of the shower, and I asked him how easy it was to assemble. I said, "Oh, this one was the hardest to put together yet!" I asked, "REALLY?!" He laughed and replied, "No! In fact, it was already assembled. All I had to do was pull it out of the box and prop it open." So it's a very easy set-up! That's plus number one!I had wanted a simple but elegant piece to compliment a sort of eclectic Zen-style bedroom I've designed for our new home in an espresso color, and this certainly fit the bill - It's stunning in the arrangement it's meant to accent! It really is a nice addition, much nicer than I even thought it would be, and very good quality.The next thing I noticed were the storage "shelves" on the back, one of the main reasons I bought it - much-needed extra storage without the cluttered look. At first, I was disappointed. I thought they'd be solid wood and told my husband that I must've misunderstood the product description somehow. From a bit of a distance, they looked canvas. I was concerned they wouldn't be wide enough or strong enough to hold what I wanted them to...We'll see, I said. Well, to my DELIGHT and surprise, I put a rather heavy, wide makeup tray on the middle one -- PERFECT! And with room left to spare. It's actually very sturdy, strong, durable dark vinyl of some sort with what appears to be good stitching. Time will tell, of course (I mean, I only got this yesterday), but I have a pretty good eye, and my husband and I both are quite impressed. I kept staring at the mirror last night, and I didn't think a simple full-length mirror would exactly capture my attention! And this one's tall, too! And slender - Not too wide, but wide enough. The slope is gentle so that you get the view you need. Anyway, you get the idea. It's a WONDERFUL buy and well worth the money! I had originally looked at a much pricier mirror from World Market that did have a little more storage and swiveled, but when I went to buy it, they were out of stock. Now, honestly, I'm glad they were -- For the money, this one's a much better deal, and it actually does what I need. If you're on the fence, buy it! You won't be sorry. 09/27/2013
