The desk came in a flat and was very confusing to put together as there is no clear indication on the pieces up and down. I put the desk together and it was so wobbly it was unbelievable. Turns out some of the pieces were upside down. had to take it apart and reput it back together. The reason it was put together wrong was because it was also missing some screws and there are holes all over the thing. It looks nice put together but we left off the cd pieces because there were surprisingly no screw holes for that and I did not have a drill to put it together. And when we had to take it apart the wood started to crack. Looks nice put together but good luck with it and reading the instructions. I have put together a variety of other flat boxes and this was by far the most difficult.
