Debbie Travis Tudor Bathroom Wall Cabinet
Just purchased this item a week ago, and I am glad it was on sale at the time, picked it up for $84. When I got the box home there was a part missing, which my local CT was kindly enough to provide to me from another box, but when I started putting it together is was very cheaply designed, the holes for the wooden pegs were too large so the pegs just floated in them so not sure what their purpose were, also I had to back out a screw when installing the hinges and realized the spots indicated were the same holes drilled for the wooden dowels but with a plug installed with a pilot hole for the screw. Once it was together (not very solid) to install the hanging bar you are provided 10 half inch screws, five for the cabinet and five for the part that mounts on the wall. The five for the cabinet actually punched thru the board piece so there are now sharp objects within the storage cavity, and the other five were not long enough to go thru the gyp-rock, let alone into the studs behind.
Overall looks are not everything and I will not purchase this brand again.

-the directions are lousy. They don't indicate that you have to adjust the locking screws until it is already assembled. By that time you have already tightened the cams in. Speaking of the cams, they are the cheapest quality I have ever used. I broke 3 of the first ones I installed. Doors don't line up and as mentioned in previous reviews, the mounting is rediculous. Ended up using my air-nailer to complete the assembly and reluctantly mounted it in a rental. NO Debbie Travis again!

-->First, needed to mount to wall = extra trip to hardware store, get wall plugs and REAL screws as hardware provided is a joke.
-->Second, one of the hinges provided was bent so I had to bang that back onto shape before assembling hinge/door.
-->Third and MOST FRUSTRATING the holes for the right door.... the holes are almost 1 inch off.
Yes, take out the drill and make holes because trying to pry the screw into the wood will split it! and as the closest store is 50 minutes from the cottage.. . we opted to just forget the almost 2 hr drive to replace or refund.
***Not impressed*** and as this is the second item from the Debbie Travis Collection to give us trouble so considering the price/quality ratio observed so far - this our LAST Debbie Travis Collection Purchase!

got this cabinet on instore special, Easy to put together providing you take your time to make sure doors line up. I used the mounting hardware for the mirror over my bathroom sink. I did not buy the mirror to go with debbie travis tudor bathroom , it was too small, and purchased a larger one for my bathroom. My bathroom is small and this cabinet provides added space.

Poor fit / finish
Ok for the price, but the fit / finish is poor. Pieces don't line up well. Good for a basement bathroom. And I agree with the other comment - trying to attach it to drywall with the screws provided is a recipe for disaster. Although if you want to use the mounting hardware, find a stud, use a 2 inch wood screw, and put something on the back of the unit near the bottom to level it.

Nice cabinet but..
Nice cabinet for the money. I would recommend not using the mounting hardware that comes with it to secure it to the wall. For some reason they supply hardware that when assembled as per instruction has the top of the cabinet off the wall about 1/2", but the bottom sits against the wall. This leaves everything at an angle. Just toss that bracket and mount directly to the wall through the inside with a couple screws and anchors.
