The table comes as 20 pieces of wood and about 3 lbs of hardware. The directions are useless. Seriously, nothing was drawn to scale, some of the pieces didn't have any pre-drilled holes, and it took us 2 days with 4 college degrees between us to figure out how the drawers went in. If you don't want to dedicate a weekend to figuring out this piece of furniture - then don't get it. This is the third piece of furniture I've ordered on Overstock and this piece is by far the most cumbersome to put together. Once together..it looks nice. But way, way too much work.
