Contest Closed. Congratulations to #707 – Tj and Amy
Our family room is a really odd shape. It is open to the kitchen, has a back stairway off of it, with many windows and fireplace along the other two walls. There isn’t a lot of wall space, and we struggle with finding ways to store Emma’s things in a neat and tidy way while preserving the look and feel of our family room. In other words, I don’t want the room to end up looking like a toy store when we’re entertaining our adult friends after the kids have gone to bed.
Emma has become quite the little reader, and so we chose the Moon & Stars Media Carousel to store all of her books. Upon delivery, we noticed that it was very well packaged. Each piece was wrapped for protection. All of the parts seemed to be high in quality, and the wood parts have smooth rounded corners and are splinter-free. Assembly took about a hour. It involved deciphering a diagram and all of the parts were numbered, so it was straightforward and easy to understand.
We did have a problem with one of the pieces being defective. It’s the very top wooden circle that is exposed when assembled. So I called customer care about it yesterday, and they’re shipping out a replacement part for us. Unfortunately, we’ll have to reassemble the unit all over again, but these things do happen. I am kind of glad that it did, so that I could give Guidecraft’s customer service skills a test run, and I can now say that they passed with flying colors!
The Moon & Stars Media Carousel is perfect for our small space. It’s a real, hardwood piece of furniture that stores books, cds and dvds. And here’s my favorite part: It rotates on it’s base so everything is easily accessible. This is huge. It’s round shape allows it to fit anywhere, even in our small space in the family room. It stands 31 inches tall and is about 20 inches in diameter.
It’s a beautiful piece of furniture, and a nice addition to our family room. So bright and colorful, too!
