I purchased two of these closets because the old farmhouse we live in has hardly any closet space whatsoever!
I am very pregnant, but I was able to put these together myself. The first one did take me over an hour to assemble. There was a minor error in the instructions in terms of part identification but that was soon resolved. It only took about 30 minutes to assemble the second closet once I knew how.
The units are fairly solid, though I could see them being pulled over with effort -- wondering if I should secure them to the wall somehow, the canvas covering is very firm and doesn't seem like it will tear, the stitching on the item seems very firm and secure. I love the big drawers and the way the closets are tall enough for not just all my tops and shirts but my dresses and skirts as well.
The style is fairly attractive and adds to the space, an upstairs landing, rather than detracting.
All in all, an excellent buy for the cost.
I purchased this even after reading the reviews, which had me terrified. However, I'm extremely glad I did. It was very tough to assemble, but with patience and thinking, it is definitely possible.
A couple things...
There is no 'L' piece. Use the 'J' caps.
Make sure you look at the arrows on the 'H' clamps. The arrow should be pointing INTO where the hole is going to be.
Put the rods through the hole and THEN put the H clamps on. it's impossible to do it any other way, since the H clamps are tapered.
I bought this item mainly because it was on sale and I was looking for something inexpensive in which to store my extra clothes. Although the assembly instructions were not good at all, once I figured out how to put it together the unit has served me very well! If you're looking for a super durable/sturdy armoire then this might not be the best choice, but it's not bad for the price if you recognize that this is meant to be a cheaper and more lightweight option.
I had hung a few blouses on the rod and bought some bins for the lower portion. But I pushed the limit and started to add heavier items on the rod and the plastic pieces holding the rods broke. Not fixable, but I knew I was pushing it's limits. Prior to that, had no problem with assembly, storage, etc...
I guess it'll be ok as long as I don't try to overload it (I bought another wardrobe that recently collapsed because of that)
I wouldn't try hanging heavy jackets on this. It looks like it'll be fine with what I have on it right now...which is several shirts...towels and a couple pairs of shoes can go on the bottom section there. We'll see how it goes.
I was super excited when I purchased this thinking that I could save a lot of space for hanging extra clothes in my room. When I hanged a little more than ten light weight blouses, the pole holding my hangers immediately fell. I'm bummed, but that's the price I pay for a cute, yet cheap product. I will be using this for other purposes such as craft storage, and upcycling the leftover pipes for personal creative projects. This product is stylish and was easy to assemble. I didn't like the brown cover though.
