Upscale Waste Receptacle
April 29, 2013
This indoor laminate waste receptacle, with the mahogany finish has an upscale look to it. It's nice and sturdy. The description and the measurements for the piece are all accurate. Price is not bad, but the shipping fee is crazy. Now coming to the assembling: first, it doesn't come assembled, but I guess the price of the product would tell you that. Second, when you open the box, you'll find a piece of paper that has the diagram of each piece of the receptcle, labeled, and how many parts of each there should be, and how to put it together. Well, each part is labeled on the instruction sheet, but not on the actual product! So to figure out whether each piece is A , or B and so on is a bit more work, and I bought 4 of these! But I guess it isn't that big of a deal. Keep in mind, at one point, closer to the end of assmbling everything, you'll need an extra pair of hands. At the very end just before you fix the door on, you'll have to drill in 2 pieces of an angle like thing all the way inside of the receptacle. Now, I'm short, so I have short arms, hence it was a bit of a challenge, and what makes it more difficult is that there are no predilled holes, so you'll have to sit or kneel there and first attempt to make a decent dent using a nail and hammer without smashing your thumb, which sadly was not the case on my part. Oh and maybe I would have preferred if there was a little more height between the base of the receptacle and the floor, so when the floors are mopped, the mop solution wouldn't damage the base. And by the way, the shipment came within a week or so. Overall, I am happy with this product and so is the business owner. It really is a great trash receptacle without actually looking like one. Even our customers can't figure out this is where the trash goes!
Pros:It has a clasy look to it. And it compliments an upscale environment.
Cons:Individual pieces were not labled, and to drill in the angle piece i very difficult and time consuming.
