Suncast Resin Wicker Outdoor Cabinet
If you need storage for larger items and do not have room for a shed, this smaller Vertical Vinyl Outdoor Storage Shed may be an answer. With winter approaching many people will have things that they purchased during the summer months for their outdoor space and now need to store them. Great for Pool toys or garden tools.
I have a small portable cabinet on my deck that holds a lot of the things that will not weather very well over winter. I have a larger shed for all of the yard tools. If you do not have a shed, this storage solution will be able to store poll supplies, garden supplies and tools, BBQ supplies and diner supplies.
Lets look at the style and size of the Suncast Resin Wicker Outdoor Cabinet and see if it will work to solve your outdoor storage problems.

What you get in the box
The Dark Brown cabinet with a wicker type finish will match any wicker furniture that you have in your outdoor space now. It is designed with for shorter items and has one metal reinforced shelf that can be adjusted for height or left out if you need to just store larger items. The top is not completely flat, some customers have items like a small flat screen TV on top with out any problems. It has a double walled construction and metal reinforcement rods in the top for stability.
How big is it
The cabinet is 42.25 inches wide, 23 inches deep and 35.25 inches tall on the outside. Inside storage space is 37.25 inches wide, 17.5 inches deep and 32.25 inches tall. It will hold 97 gallons of stuff. It will weigh about 50 pounds and will need some weight in it to keep it stable in high winds. To help with this it has two locations on the back panel that can be drilled out for mounting to a wall with lag screws (not provided).
Assembly and use
Assembly is easy for one person. Only need a screwdriver for normal assembly. Power driver not recommended, if you have to use it put on the lightest setting. The two back panels go together with four screws. Then attach the two steel reinforcement bars to the underside of the top with eight screws each. The two sides and back will then snap into the bottom of this unit. The top will then snap into the sides and back with the curved side to front, four screws will hold the top in place. Lay the shelf on the top and install the one steel bar with four screws. Insert shelf in one of the three locations. A door insert must be placed in each door before snapping them in place.
The doors have a provision for a lock in the handles. No wheels are provided or can be installed in this unit. Once assembled the unit can be moved, you will just have to unload before moving as there are not handles on the sides.
Weather Proof, will not keep out bugs or other small pest. Customer comments state that they store towels without a problem of them getting wet. Each outside storage area will be different.
This storage cabinet will be great for storing your garden supplies (soil, digger, seeds with proper sealed container}, pool supplies (floats, squirt guns, balls and towels), yard tools (trimmers, blowers and weed killers) and BBQ and diner supplies (BBQ tools, plates and eating tools, place mats).

John, Good review. I love having outdoor storage that makes my garden tools easily available or for storing little things. I live in the tropics and the sun is brutal here. It fades most things and causes plastics to become brittle. Do you have any idea how this weathers? Would it be okay in the sun or should I find a shady spot for it? Is there something else you would recommend instead?
The resin material that is used to make these cabinets will withstand most weather conditions. They are recommended for areas like Florida and Texas here in the states. They get plenty of sunshine.
If you think the sun would still be a problem, I would look at wooded storage boxes. Teak or eucalyptus will be the best. You could buy 5 resin boxes for the price of one wooden one.
