Our basement flooded and we needed all new furniture. Since our boys don't live at home anymore, I just need simple stuff without spending a lot of money. For the price of this piece, I feel it's a great. It was easy enough to put together and feels sturdy, to a point. I wouldn't recommend putting anything heavy on it. For that reason, I am giving the storage capacity 4 stars because I don't think you could put much weight in it and have it last. And, nothing I do can get that bottom shelf in without it being wobbly. But, if you're looking for a "room filler", this is great. I wouldn't buy it for a room where it will be used a lot.
