It was just as it was pictured. Nice quality, very rich, and tasteful piece. It looks a lot better than the price I paid. Completely happy. One corner was smashed in the shipping, but it was in the back so not visible. I'll use Overstock again in the future.
Putting this together went good until we got to putting the top on, we worked for a day and a half trying to get it on, you have to line up 8 pegs on 4 boards which is the ends and 2 dividers. We finally got them to where they are lined up and then it wouldn't go down into the holes, we took it on and off countless times trying to figure out the problems then one end came loose and fell over when we took it off and popped whatever the thing is that holds that peg in out of the hole and made a bulge around the hole and ripped a piece of the laminate off and you can see it after it is together and the bottom is not real wood or it wouldn't have done that. We could line up and get the pegs in one end or the other so that meant the middle section of the back was higher and had to trim it down and one back corner still didn't fit exactly right but enough to fasten it and not be noticeable. Then something is not right about the bottom drawer it does not go in far enough for the doors to slide across so I took the drawer front off and the screws that hold the handle on wouldn't hold either. I was thinking we had $*** worth of fire crap for awhile , can't call it wood. It is pretty and sturdy if you can get it together. I would say buy one at your own risk and hope everything is perfect about it so it will go together right.
Overall I am happy with the good quality and style of the tv credenza. It was well packaged for shipping, so there were no issues with damage. Assembly went well, but the top was very difficult to align for placement, even with two people. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was the sliding doors positioned in the bottom track lightly scrape across the drawer handle when slid to the center position on the console and there seems to be no way to adjust the doors or the drawer to correct this. We are keeping the doors in the open position, so this isn't a big deal for us.
This is beautiful, but be aware that it is much darker than the picture shows. It is more of a dark cherry with red undertones. It is also 36 in high, not 32. Overstock saved us $198 over all the other sites for the same piece. It arrived a week earlier than expected, but UPS left it outside in the pouring rain, never rang the bell, and we were home. It was under an overhang, soggy but not soaked. The unit had 23 pieces, all in good condition, no scratches or cracks anywhere. The unit is predrilled for the screws, but the drawer was not drilled out, and the drawer slides had been pre attached too far front to allow the doors to close over it. Once moved back, it was fine. Other reviews said it took up to 4 hrs to put together, my husband and son did it in an hour and 40 min. It could have been less, but they had to be very careful not to crack the wood when making their own holes and also moving the slides. Otherwise, it is a really rich looking piece, lots of storage, and a great price. Would definitely recommend it!
