answer 1
it's made of pressed particle board and while it's not real wood, it's still heavy although I can move it around. It isn't sturdy unless you purchase L-shaped brackets to keep it from swaying to the side as it's narrow and top heavy.

I think the bracket is designed just to stabilize the cabinet against the wall so it can't tip over when you pull the doors open. The cabinet is pretty heavy .. not sure I would trust hanging it up on the wall. I suppose you could attach a couple of L brackets on the bottom & attach those to the wall for additional support if you really wanted up off the floor, but the mounting piece by itself would probably not be good enough by itself.

If you put 'L' brackets on the top & bottom of the cabinet and attach those to the wall (like into a stud), it probably could be mounted up off the floor. The bracket that comes with it is only for stabilizing (so that it can't tip over then you pull open the doors) and that would not be sufficient alone for mounting it up on a wall.

There are 4 useable shelves. The middle & bottom shelves are 'fixed' shelves and it comes with two adjustable shelves. There are 3 sets of pre-drilled holes for the brackets you put in to support the adjustable shelves in both the upper & lower part of the cabinet (3 in each section) - this give you the option of placing the shelves at different heights. You can order additional shelves & shelf support brackets from the manufacturer though, so you could have more, but the way the holes are set, if you put in 2, the adjustable shelves would only be a max of about 5" apart.

Yes but when you open the doors, you need additional space to allow for the doors to swing open and the handles are there also. In other words, if you only had a space 21.31" wide you would not be able to fully open the doors. My estimate is you need about a 24" space.
