    Best Advent Calendar Out There (13-Dec-09)

    I decided to purchase this advent calendar because it is a nice size and made of good -- instead of cardboard -- so it will last longer. Kaisercraft has good instructions for assembly and decoration online. Putting the frame together takes quite a bit of time, but it is all worth it in the end. You can do so much with it and I am extremely happy with my purchase.

    Daughter will love this (22-Jul-13)

    My daughter has been wanting one of these for a long time, this year is the year for her to start one for her daughter. This is going to be great for putting little pieces of candy or a small toy into, even notes from santa......

    Fun Project (23-Feb-11)

    This was a super fun advent to create. My 10 year old daughter was able to help me with the painting! We had a blast.

    Super Cute and EasyK (29-Aug-10)

    I ordered this after seeing it online at the Kaiser site.

    I am very satisfied with the product, it looks great and was easy to paint and cover with paper.

    The only thing keeping me from 5 stars is there are no instructions included from Kaiser on how to assemble it. I had to fiddel with it and I figured it out on my own.

    Overall, it is a great product and it will be in my family for years to come.

    Beatiful Results but... (18-Nov-11)

    I am actually finishing up assembling my second project: I gave the one I made last year to my DIL and her mother liked it so much that I'm doing one for her.
    So why three stars?
    I've taken one off because this does not come with assembly instructions and there really is a need for them because the parts do need to be put together in a particular order. (I used the Google to find a good step-by-step.)
    And I've taken another off because of the difficulty of inserting the parts. You need to have a file handy for the tabs and slots that expand slightly when your project is painted. (You have to paint part of this prior to assembly.)
    Once all that is out of the way, it's a pretty easy process and like I said, the resulting project is wonderful.

    Fun craft project (13-Oct-10)

    Ok...so I was a little surprised at how small this actually was (not much bigger than a 12x12 paper) but when it was completely built its sz. will make it easier to pack away after the holidays.
    Love that you can decorate not only the drawers (chipboard), but the panel in center!
    While you don't need instructions to build this, a paper with a few helpful tips would be nice....

  • Excellent but pshipping is high (17-Dec-10)

    I received on other these as a birthday gift and spent the weekend decorating it. I tried Gorilla Glue bt it didn't hold. Weldbond did the trick. I purchased 3 more in hopes of auctioning one off and funderaiser, another at a school silent auction and the last as a gift. Well worth the money but the Shipping was Quite high.

    very fun to make (23-Dec-11)

    I saw this in a magazine and decided to do it, I have finally (sigh) done all the sanding and I'm now up to decorating it (the bit we all enjoy) :-) The instructions are very clear and it's a good size. I can't wait to finally finish mine!

    Cute Project! (13-Nov-09)

    Saw this project in my local store and flipped. My only concern is it came without instructions. But it wasn't hard to figure out. Used Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses papers to give all of the boxes a unique look. WARNING: this is a pressed wood product; do not paint until you have primed it. I didn't and it took me 3 coats of paint for coverage (and the coverage is not even). But that doesn't show from the front! Glitter and Sparkle Modge Podge work wonders

  • worth the effort (23-Feb-11)

    This came with no instructions, so plenty of ftrial and error. Lay it out first! Once figured out assembly was easy. Made mine for my newly married son. They love it. It lights up what more could they want? My sister liked it so much she paid me for one for her.

    Cute but difficult (01-Dec-10)

    This calendar is fun since you can decorate it any way you want. It is a great size and I love the little drawers for candy. However, it was extremely time consuming! Not only did it not come with any instructions, I had to use a saw, dremmel tool, drill, glue, and paint just to get it together to begin decorating. The pegs didn't fit in the slots, so I had to sand them down with the dremmel tool. I had planned to spend about 3-4 hours on this project, and it would up being more like 20 hours over several days. If you are okay with that, then go for it.
