For the price of this curio this peice is a bargain. We ordered the curio and it arrived in 2 days. Overstock is great with their shipping times.On to the curio it self. It came in 2 boxes and ready for assembly. The instructions with pictures were easy to follow and every piece was easily labeled with A,B,C etc. The only complaints I had werewith the Cap Locks and the back cover sheet. The Cap Locks easily broke off if you tighten them too hard. I found that this was caused by the end screw being to close to the base wood. When the cap lock tried to lock itself with the end screw it had no space to turn and instead the friction between the end screw and the cap lock forced it to break off. Just be very careful with the cap locks, because they are the ones which hold the curio piece together. We have a small gap from the top piece to the side board because the Cap Lock broke and it is not as sturdy as it should be.With the back cover sheet/board, it did not fit flush to the opening, THe back cover sheet holds the mirror in place. So be very careful when placing in the screws make sure you are screwing into the edges of the wood and no where the mirror is. You can possibly crack the mirror.Definitely take your time when installing, dont need to rush into it. There are alot of pieces and small parts to consider so read the instructions and follow them and you should be fine.This is a good looking curio and made of solid wood. Besides some assembling problems this is a great product for the price.
