Everything came intact and is of decent enough quality given the price. One big issue with ours is the holes for the drawer slides were placed too high. Thus, the drawers don't fit right. The top one doesn't even fit and there is a gap between the bottom one and the doors. So I'm heading to Home Depot to get my own drawer slides. This should fix things as the door slides that come with the unit aren't that great anyway. One I get that little DIY issue out of the way, this thing will look great in my dining room. Still happy with the purchase as it is really hard to find a black buffet that has glass features like this one.

I have never seen such poor instructions of anything we have assembled so far. Ikea has far more better instructions we feel. Worst labeling and instructions. The product cane with broken pieces. Which took atleast 2 hrs to actually clean the space and dispose the broken parts. Apart fromthat it took atleast 6 hrs to figure out the parts and assemble. I just ignored few reviewers acvice and went ahead and bought the buffet. But it took atleast 8 hrs from start to finish, which was rediculus. Its mainly due to mislabeling of parts and broken pieces. Still we went ahead and started assembling , after assembly the end product looks satisfactory and fits the space perfectly for our needs. Though we are still missing few glass shelves , Overstock has promised to send the replacement parts. Customer service was good and helped appropriately. I would definitely look for more reviews and buy products regarding the assembly from now on.

I was almost hesitant to order this item based on the reviews of people commenting how difficult it was to assemble. I don't know why though... My boyfriend and I unpacked everything from the box and organized all the pieces by their numbers and letters. We used a cordless screwdriver and had the buffet assembled, put in place, filled and everything cleaned up in less than 2 hours. But most importantly, the cabinet is stylish, and looks great! So, if you like this, please don't be discouraged by other reviews. It's really easy to put together! Just be sure to assemble it in the room you want it, since it easily weighs over 100 lbs.
I didn't purchase this thinking that I was buying a piece of "fine furniture". That said, this buffet perfectly fits the bill for what we were looking for. The two drawers are roomy enough for table linens, and the closed cabinet space provides adequate storage for dishes and/or serving pieces. The two side display cabinets each accommodate two glass shelves and provide sufficient height and depth for attractive display of favorite pieces. I was a little anxious about assembly after reading some o the other reviews, but it went together relatively easily. (Approximately 2 1/2 hours from opening the boxes to completion of assembly.) No parts or pieces were missing or broken. All parts were well-packaged and arrived in perfect condition. We added a small LED puck light on each side to give it that little "extra something". We're very pleased with this purchase.
WOW!!! the other reviews are correct in saying that the instructions suck!!! MY husband was ready to throw this hunk of junk out the window. holes didn't match up, came with miss matched hinges. It looks ok, but STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT!!!!

I love the buffet it compliments my dining table. It took over six hours to assemble and this was done by a man that has rebuilt a fiat from ground up and also built a Magnavox TV from scratch. Also we never needed a warranty on any of our major appliances because he could fix all of them. The buffet arrived with no assembly instructions Included and it took three try's before any were emailed. I do not think overstock can be blamed just the manufacturer.

We needed a cabinet that could house our china and glasses without taking up too much room. This fit the bill. It looks great and I love that my crystal is on display on the sides. For a smaller piece, it fit all of our pieces. Not gonna lie, it was a hassle to put together. Took a few hours and was more tedious than other pieces we have built. Really happy with this purchase.
Very pretty piece, & reasonably priced. The only problem I had with this is the two middle front doors, when closed, don't meet. This piece was put together by a professional. The craftsmanship is really far from perfect. I actually purchased 2 of these, & both have this problem. I gave it a 3 star b/c it's really pretty, but this is. Major & very noticeable flaw.
When finally assembled it was just what I wanted. The assembling was a challenge however...several missing parts although customer service provided the parts that were needed. Be sure to check the parts list before beginning. That said the buffet looks very nice when completed...right size, right color, and fair price.
It's a lovely piece of furniture. It takes some time to assemble, but it's not overly difficult. My issue is that once it was all together and it had settled into it's place for a few weeks, it started expanding/shrinking/adjusting, and now the drawers need new slides and the doors creak and dont stay open on their own. For the money spent, it's doing it's job, I had just hoped for more.
I purchased this buffet and am using it as a coffee bar/wine bar. I bought a piece of black glass from Ikea that fits almost perfectly on top and protects to buffet from being damaged. I love this piece and highly recommend it. I've had it for some time now and have had no issues.
