This is sturdy and I plan to paint it to match my craft room. It was super easy to put together and all the parts fit together perfectly. I would highly recommend it.
I do like this item. However, it is difficult to put together and the shelves don't fit well into the slots. I used a bit of carpenter's glue when putting together as otherwise, the shelves don't stay in the slots. A carpenter's square would be handy as well to make sure all the angles are 90 degrees.
Once I got it all put together though, I really liked it. It holds a lot of paper and can be decorated anyway you like.
