My husband and I put it together in one-half hour with no snags. We put it on our screened porch where we do a lot of entertaining and I filled it with a bin of placemats and tablecloths, a caddy for plates, silverware and napkins, cleaners and paper towels, a bin full of serving platters and two lanterns. Now I can pull them out with ease and serve twelve people at my two tables with everything two steps away. It matches all my other brown wicker chests, serving cart and beverage cooler and I am so pleased. It is easy to clean and weather proof in this environment. Thank you!
