Bought a second one!

I purchased one of these for my daughter for her college dorm room to use as a nightstand (I added a picture so you can see how tall it is). She wanted it gold, so I spray painted it and it turned out great. I assembled it in less than 10 minutes- the only tool needed is a little wrench that it comes with. I would recommend not snapping the tabs on too tight until you decide what height you want each basket. Lightweight, but good quality. My other daughter saw it and decided she wanted one too :)

Excellent cart

This cart was easy to put together. It is also easy to adjust the height of each tray/shelf. I bought it to use as a cart to transport things out to our fire pit. We recently used it to hold all the makings for s'mores. Nice and neat. I can easily roll it from the kitchen outside to wherever I need it. This cart would be good for lots of applications. Extra storage for just about any room. Seems sturdy for the price and it looks nice. I will keep it in my laundry room when I don't need it for outdoor service.

Love this cart!

I love this cart, I happened upon it a year ago when shopping at Walmart, i found it at the perfect time. As I was thinking about getting a similar cart from Ikea. This looks almost identical to that one, it was easy to put together and it's held up nicely. I've had it for over a year. I use it daily to store my daughter's cloth diapers and other baby things.


I am a 30 year old lady and I put this together in about 15 minutes by myself. It is such good quality I can hardly believe it is only thirty bucks. After I assembled it, I covered the wheels and spray painted it turquoise (a la IKEA Raskog). One can of spray paint will do. I then sewed some fabric liners with some scrap material I had on hand. You don't need liners, I just wanted them. During assembly I put all the "sleeves" at their highest settings and I think it looks great like that. One thing I noticed is that 2 of the wheels aren't touching the floor and so there is a wobble. I'm not worried, I know my hubby can level them for me later.

Great item, better price!

I bought this item as a stand-in for it's WAY more expensive brother, the IKEA Raskog Utility Cart, and I'm so glad I did! For less than half the price, I purchased this for use in my soon-coming baby's nursery as a portable changing cart. I love that you can see through the shelves as opposed to having to feel around the edges for what you can't see. The shelves are a good size. I was able to put a package of diapers on one side of one of the shelves and it fit perfectly, leaving more than half of the shelf to add more things. It was easy to put together and I like that you can adjust the shelves as time goes on and its use changes. I read previous reviews that said you couldn't move the shelves once they were in place, but I tested this before putting anything in it and I was able to do so with little effort. The cart itself is made of very sturdy, high-quality materials and seems like it will withstand regular wear and tear, evidenced by the fact that I dropped one of the shelves on top of my half-constructed project and it didn't dent, chip or anything. I'm very happy with this purchase and I would purchase another one!

Easy to assemble and convenient to use

You can roll the rolling cart wherever you want to work. Kitchen to carry recipe books, living room to open and sort mail, office to hold supplies for specific tasks. Excellent addition to any room or need. And you can roll it away when it is not in use. Perfect for homework on the dining room table to put projects away at diner time .

Great cart

I purchased a similar cart from Target and used it for crafts. This cart by far was easier to put together and this shelves are adjustable. You don't need any tools to put it together as opposed to the Target cart which was a bit of a pain to assemble. This cart's shelves were also each larger. I used this for books. Very sturdy, would buy again, just wish there were more colors. May end up spray painting it a different color.

Great cart!

This is a really sturdy cart! I was nervous buying this because other reviews said it was hard to build but if you follow the directions, its easy to build. The cart is spacious and easy to move around on carpet or hardware floors. The shelves are adjustable which is great. You just have to unsnap the clips on each side and adjust Up or down. Great product and I would buy this again and recommend it!

Good, sturdy cart

Trays are firm metal with a small diamond pattern. The diamonds are about 1/4" wide X 1/2" long. Straws, toothpicks, etc would go through. Each tray holds up to 15 pounds. The height of the cart is 32". The trays are 16" X 12" X 3.5" Mine has an Electric pressure cooker on the top, a griddle run the middle, and a food processor in the bottom (separated into base and top). I was not able to make the shelves go to various height positions, which was my only difficulty with putting it together. I hoped to get another for my sewing machine. The machine will fit in the shelf if not in its cover, but it is not wide enough to go in with the cover on it. I may very well purchase more of these carts.

Wish I had known

I purchased this for our bathroom for extra storage. The color and sturdiness of the product is great. However, what I didn't realize until after I opened it and assembled it was that the top of the poles have no finish piece. I'm referring to what you essentially are hanging the baskets on. For how much it costs you would think they would have created a plastic piece to cover it so that dust or children can't shove anything down there but they didn't.
