I needed a step stool to reach the high cupboards in my kitchen that was attractive enough to leave out since I need it on a regular basis.I would recommend having someone help you put this together as it was somewhat tricky with two sets of hands, and I can't imagine trying to do it alone. The quality is somewhat iffy - the screws didn't want to go in straight, and in one case cracked the bottom of the horizontal support. We found it was best to tightly hold the pieces where they should be, and then attempt to drive the screw in straight, rather and letting the screw pull the pieces together. There was one piece that really wanted to spin that would have been better if it had pegs to hold it straight like the other pieces.I still gave it 4 stars because it looks nice in my kitchen and works perfectly for reaching the high shelves, feels very sturdy now that it's together and was a great price. It does wobble a bit when my cat sits on it, but not when I have my full weight on it.There are two small screws visible (one on each side of the lower step) - I plan to get paint to cover them. I'm not sure why they didn't either use the same screws and plugs as the rest of the screws that would have been visible.
