25" Scrollwork Hamper w/Removable Canvas Liner by Valerie
I just received this hamper and all parts were accounted for. I then began to assemble it and it was pretty easy except for one of the pins didn't line up with where the long screw was supposed to go. So rather than get all flustered, I asked my husband to just line that up for me with a screw driver and the pin fit in just fine after that. Then putting it together the rest of the way was a breeze. I did have a little trouble getting the small screws to screw in all the way, but I think it's just that I need a little more muscle to get them in tightly. Anyway, I got it assembled and love the black and white look, which matches perfectly the decor in my office where I have it located. I bought this particular hamper because I was looking for something in metal that my sweet old cat would not claw and scratch up to pieces. I'm hoping he won't even be tempted to claw at the bag inside because of the metal frame. So far that hasn't happened but it's only been a few hours since I put it up and out. Other than that, so far I am very happy with my new hamper purchase!
Really love my hamper!
I got this just before Christmas; no problem assembly and very sturdy.
It really looks much nicer than the store bought plastic type hampers.
I would like to invest in a couple more for my daughters and daughters-in-law.
Stylish and Functional Hamper
I was a little hesitate to order this hamper because of some of the low ratings. However, from past experience I don't always agree with some of the reviews that come in, so decided to take a chance when the hamper was on a lunchtime special last week. So glad, I went ahead and ordered this piece. I really think both the style and functionality of this hamper is wonderful. Plus, the directions and assembly were very easy to follow. Really happy with my new hamper and definitely adds some class and style to the laundry room now.
Good and Bad
I do think this is a lovely hamper. I have been pricing hampers and this is also an excellent clearance price. However, as others have stated.....the workmanship on this is not good. Screws do not fit, parts do not line up, etc. FINALLY, my husband was able to get the hamper in usable condition. I considered sending it back before he got it fixed but that would have been too much trouble.
Beautiful Design, poor workmanship
Bought 5 of these to help keep laundry organized and neat. Beautiful design, but the workmanship was a bit on the cheap side. Had to go buy longer screws because 3 of them were too short to go in the way it was designed. Hamper should be built sturdier as well.
I don't understand some of the poor reviews. This hamper is great, even my husband loves it. It was easy to assemble and will last for years. I have decided to keep in out in our master bedroom, rather than take up space in the walk-in closet. I think you could also use this to hold toys, recylcing or towels. Well done Valerie!
I had looked for months for a nice looking hamper. this one is pretty and I love it. We did not have any trouble putting it together and it is sturdier than I expected. I am ordering another one.
I have been looking at this hamper for a couple of months now, hoping someone else would write a good review. Sorry to say I went ahead and took the plunge and received damaged.. The beautiful solid black top had a big chip on the left front corner and the top was suppose to be a smooth surface. It wasn't smooth at all, it had little air bubbles in the paint job. My husband had started putting it together when I saw the damaged corner so I told him not to even bother putting it together, back it goes.. Considering this was a little over $85.00 with tax & shipping I just couldn't believe how cheap it was made. Don't waste your money...Of course thanks to QVC's great customer service I will get a full refund including return shipping. Thanks QVC for great service.
Beautiful, BUT NOT WORTH THE $$
This is the most disappointing product I have EVER purchased from QVC or Valerie. The screws for the lid are cheap and both the screws and the tool sent with it to put the screws in stripped. The lid came scratched. The tubes to put the screws in on the panels were soldered on upside down. The pegs to hold the panels on were bend and my husband had to use a philips head to straighten them out. Poor workmanship.
Beautiul way to disguise dirty laundry!
I just finished putting this together. If I can do it, anyone can! It looks great in a bedroom or bath and holds so much more than my other hamper...you know... the one that separates colors and whites! I would recommend this to anyone who wants function, yet style.
To expensive for the quality
The quality is not up to the price wanted for this product. I ordered 2 and one was missing some screws which were essential to the building of the hamper.
I would not recommend unless the price drops by half
