I put the desk together in about an hour. (Most of the time was spent un-packaging.) However, this desk isn't especially easy to put together. The screws holding the shelves on the legs require the simultaneous use of the included Allen wrench and a Phillips screwdriver (while also holding the shelf in place), which is difficult (but do-able) for just one person. Of course, the directions do recommend that you have a helper. Anyway, the desk looks beautiful but I'm a little nervous about how it's going to hold up over time. When my mom and I lifted it to move it into place, I could feel it buckling in the middle. Lesson learned. The desk top has a few scratches that I didn't notice until I flipped the whole thing right side up, so I don't know if they were there before shipping, a result of shipping, or my own fault. I know it wasn't supposed to come with the pictured chair but I wish it did! I'm having a hard time finding a similar one for a reasonable price.
