The parts were clearly labeled. I took inventory of all the parts before I started. The only thing that threw me was parts 7 and 8. They were in the same bag and so I thought at first that I was missing part 7 because the 7 was printed on one side and the 8 was printed on the other. The instructions were very logical and the cabinet was designed well so I had no problems putting it together with just a Phillips head screwdriver. My mother is very pleased with the cabinet and she gets a lot of complements on it. I thought it was a good price and the shipping charge was cheap. I was shocked when I ordered it off of my IPhone Saturday night and it arrived on Wednesday.
