I do love the bookshelf. It was not that difficult to put together. The one issue I had was putting the wooden pegs in, you need to make sure they are all the way in oterwise when you put the screws in the adjacent holes and tighten the pegs come through. It happened a couple of times on ours, luckily on the underside so it is not visible. Other than that looks great flanking the fireplace a great pieces for the cable & dvd boxes with the tv above the mantel.
