Overall, I LOVE this piece. I spent a lot of time researching & shopping for a buffet both in person and online. This piece finally had me hooked when I realized how neatly I would be able to fit electronics into it.
When I first received it, I immediately began assembling. As per other reviews suggestions, I took my time. I never had to drill new holes and when it came to attaching drawer brackets, take your time and use common sense! The brackets are grouped with left sides together and right sides taped together. Took me a few minutes to work it out before I began attaching.
Assembly was fairly easy. I would suggest a power screw driver or ratcheting screw driver. Its doable by hand, but its not all that easy (I'm a 27yo F). I had most of the lower half assembled and I was ready to put the top piece on when I noticed one corner was smashed in. I freaked a little, but the next day I used the chat feature on the overstock site and the report went very smoothly. I was hoping to us...
This buffet is beautiful. It took 2 people 2 1/2 hours from start to finish to assemble without any difficulties. I love the dark finish, it matches other furniture I have. I would highly recommend this buffet to others. I am very pleased with this purchase.
This is a great buffet. The thing is SOLID and looks much more expensive than it is. It goes together well and doesn't feel cheaply made. The only area where they skimped was on the drawer rail hardware. They are pretty whatever, but I don't plan on storing anything in them that I will need to access often, if ever, so not a big deal for me. I did think that I should mention the COLOR. A lot of the reviews led me to expect a black buffet. It isn't black. In a moderately lit room it almost exactly matches an ikea "black-brown" finish (but much nicer, obviously). However, when natural light hits it there is definitely a slight warm red undertone, which I wasn't expecting or necessarily wanting, but it is so dark that it's hardly noticeable and doesn't clash with my otherwise cool colored house so I don't mind. This is an amazing piece for the price. Get it.
This has been a mess from the beginning. I ordered this cabinet, and it arrived in three boxes. I hired a guy to come out and put it together for me. After getting it all opened up and spread out everywhere, he told me there were some very key pieces missing (actual panels). So I called Overstock, who was very helpful and they contacted the warehouse and had an additional box sent out supposedly with the missing parts. Another box arrived, and I had the guy back out to put it together. After beginning to assemble it, he said the parts they had sent were not to this piece of furniture and showed me where it didn't fit together and was clearly not the correct part. So I boxed it all back up and returned it to OS. They sent me a whole new cabinet which arrived in three boxes. This time, being tired of paying someone to come over and not be able to do anything, I had a friend of mine who is a mechanical engineer and has put together a bunch of stuff like this over the years, come ...
