I had no problems putting this together. I did encounter a little problem. One of the legs didn't fit quite right but after some finesse it worked out fine. Also one of the tables had a small scratch on the top when it came out of the box. Also, there were no instructions for assembly.
I wanted something different for a bedside table and this was right on the money. Pretty, delicate, good size table top. I put a glass round on it to protect the wood..I love this piece. It was easy to put together. I have a big smile on my face !!
