I had been searching for just the right shelving for our home office. When I saw this galvanized steel untit I knew that was it! Then I read a review that said assembly was a nightmare. I have to admit I had second thoughts but after deliberation I decided to order it..I mean how hard could it be?
So when it arrived my husband and I tackled it. I, actually, am the more mechanical (and patient) one.
The reviewer had said the directions were terrible..but I found the less is more directions just perfect.
The configuration I ordered had 8 cubes to assemble and 2 doors. The first cube took about a half hour...it's that way with most things...then bang bang bang each cube thereafter took about 5-10 minutes.
and after full assembly It was a wow!
Please buy this if you love it...it's sturdy and industrial looking and easy to put together as long as you just concentrate on what you are doing.
Also kudos to the wonderful customer service provided by the container store. 2 pieces were scuffed and no questions asked were replaced immediately.
I am thrilled with this purchase and shopping with the container store.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by HelloMelo Better Directions and Easier Installation Please!!
I saw the shelving unit online and in stores and took the chance to purchase it at the Elfa shelf sale. I have to say purchasing it was the easy part and assembling the unit has been a pain ever since. It seems that the company that really makes these shelves is Italian so the English version of the directions are VERY minimal. No more than 2 sentences and the pictures that match the instructions are unsatisfactory. After assembling the whole entire unit I now have to take down the whole entire thing because the instructions fail to tell you that you need to have accessories such has the shelf or X-divider placed in before you put the door. And the door was a complete NIGHTMARE getting in. If you decide to purchase this have a Container Store employee talk you through the whole entire process of the configuration you choose. You'll save a lot of time and aggravation. I gave it an average rating because it does look nice and offers me a lot options for space and storage than a dresser would. If I knew then what I know now then I would purchase armed with knowledge.
