nice piece, but a few glitches...
 from Massachusetts,  Dec 18, 2012

This is a very solid piece of furniture and it looks nice. As others have said, it takes about 2-3 hours to put together. There are a few instances where the directions could be clearer. And there are some issues with the product: 1. there are a few places where the wood split when the dowels were inserted. Not a big deal. 2. The knobs do not fit. The screws are just a little too short to "catch" the metal part of the inside of the knobs. I had to use different screws. Not a big deal. 3. The different pieces are identified with little stickers with numbers on them. This is very helpful in putting the pieces together. Unfortunately, whoever put these stickers on the pieces did so while the paint was still drying and/or added a coat of paint on top of the stickers. The stickers were nearly impossible to remove, and when I eventually did get them off, the paint color underneath them is a slightly brighter shade of white. This is VERY noticeable. I called overstock and they are refunding me the money needed to buy some touch-up paint to correct the problem. Overall, I am happy with the piece, but these little "issues" are why I wouldn't recommend this item.
