I was thrilled when I saw this product become available. Even if you have a craft room we can always use more storage/organization and this armoire fits the bill perfectly. First it shipped super fast. The piece arrived in perfect condition and it is large and heavy so this was a minor concern of mine. The 'assembly' is just installing 6 screws and some rods. It takes all of 5 minutes. The armoire is full of storage options. It's obvious someone who crafts created this unit and knew what they were doing. The only downside, and I couldn't find a way to give this 4.5 stars was the cork on the front. It is very thin and a standard push pin barely works as it is too long. I may find some cork and add a layer myself. This is a minor detail in comparison to everything else. I am delighted with this purchase. Now I can have things at my fingertips instead of looking in boxes I have stored in closets. This product is worth the money and I highly recommend it.
The delivery cost was insane but the product is just right. Fits my needs perfectly. Wish I could get one like it that had only the paper storage. That is what I find most handy.
The UPS driver dropped it off in the snow about seventy five feet away from my door. The package was almost 55 pounds and I am almost 79 years old! What fun that was bringing the well packaged item into my house!
The product said two people were required to assemble and place it but I managed with very little difficulty to quickly assemble, place and use the handy item.
My only wish is that it should be available in other colors. The white over the door hangers look sad on my mahogany doors. Want that paper hanger as soon as it is available!
I am overall pleased with the product and received it very quickly. It was not to heavy to maneuver with one person. I mounted the brackets with ease and was able to left it onto the door standing on a step stool. I was a little disappointed with the trays that fit on the bottom left, they are very thin and will crack if you put too much in them. The cork on the front is not thick enough to use push with, but the review labeled "how to mount on wall" is an excellent source of information on how to solve the problem with the cork board as well has hot to mount it on the wall which I will probably do at a later time. I am think it will become a very useful tool and I am satisfied enough with it that I plan to order another one.
This craft armoire came well packaged. I expected to have to put it together but it was fully assembled except to attach the over the door hangars and some bars inside the armoire. My only small complaint was that the bars on the inside fit on one side, but not the other. We had to do a little drilling to correct that. The armoire has lots of room and contains my craft items nicely. I would highly recommend this product.
I just revived this a few days ago. It was very easy to put together and to mount on my door. There is plenty of room to store some of my favorite embellishments, some punches and paper. It is extremely well made. Seems to me that Jinger thought of everything. I wish I had the room for another one. Although it is a little pricey, I am delighted with my purchase.
I received the Craft Armoire for Christmas. I don't have a craft room and have stacks of paper, jars of buttons, etc. laying everywhere. The Craft Armoire has alleviated part of my mess, and I like the fact I can hang it over the door.
I would love it if it were larger, however I guess it would then be too heavy to hang on a door.
Overall I am very pleased with this product. There are only 2 negatives I can say, first it says you can mount it on the wall but there's no way to do that without modifying the over-the-door hooks or making your own brackets. The second is the trays on the bottom left. They are very thin plastic. For the price of the cabinet, they should be a little more thick or sturdy but to just use for embellishments, they are fine. Otherwise, I am so happy to finally have a way to organize everything in one spot without the clutter of several items scattered across my room and without taking up too much space!
I really like this, but there are some problems potential buyers should be aware of.
First of all, the video I watched about it said there was hardware included to wall mount it. There was not. My poor husband had to saw off the hooks on the over the door hanger so he could screw it into the wall for me. Now there are ugly metal rods with screws in them sticking up over the top of the unit.
Second, the holes that the 11 hanging rods go into are not big enough all along the right hand side. My hubby had to use a Dremel tool to make the holes bigger. Now it works fine.
Third, the pouch section looks to be barely hanging on there. I checked the upper left hand corner and it starts to peel of very easily. I'm sure that if you put very much weight in the pouches at all, the whole thing is going to pull away from the unit.
All of that being said, it's really cute and works for the light use that I'm going to be using it for.
Glad you asked....the shelf arrived in good condition, but the outside package was torn and bent in several places,I fully expected damage when I opened it....luckily there was no damage. The only thing I had issues with were the plastic cubbies on the left side. The rods won't stay in place nor will the plastic cubbies pop on the rods without them falling out again. I have chosen not to use that space at all. Disappointed, yes, but not enough to pack it up and send it back. For the price I spent, I wish the rods would fit properly and the plastic was better quality.
Can't wait to get it organized and have fun with the set up. 903-681-4766.
For all of us that thought that this could be mounted on the wall . We were disappointed when it arrive and realized that there was not a way to mount this. There is! My Dear Husband realized that the dividers for the paper side slide out and behind them is a very nice piece of wood installed on the top. He used lag bolts into one stud and a very heavy duty anchor on the other side. Then on the stud side he also installed on more lag bolt on the bottom behind the removable drawers to give it added support. This thing is quite heavy. Perfect! I then painted it a very light gray (same color as contrast wall in the room). I cut a piece of foam core the size of the cork board and covered it with a pretty fabric. I glued it on the cork board and
the cabinet is beautiful! Oh and a very nice handle to open it. So pretty that I am ordering another one to mount on the opposite side of the
window. I hope this helps all of you that wanted to mount this. I had this
over the door and it really messed up the door.
I forgot to mention do not forget to slide your paper dividers bac into the slots when you are done.
