The item is fairly easy to put together and all of the pieces were there. Page two of the directions were not included but customer service emailed them to me immediately, so it worked out well. A few of the holes were not exactly aligned so the drawers aren't as smooth as I would like. Overall,however, it is a good value for the money.
We were very happy with our Armoire once it was fully built, however it was one of the most difficult pieces of furniture to buy that we've ever purchased. The door hinges didn't align very well to the holes on the door and main frame which made it near impossible to attach the doors. In fact the left door still doesn't sit plush against the main frame like it should, but it is almost unnoticeable. If you ready to put in the work though, you'll be very happy with the final product.
Not the best quality but it gets the job done. And you can't beat the shipping price here. It didn't come with all the parts though. Received "replacement" parts in the wrong color. Still waiting for more "replacements" to finish putting it together. That part is slooow, about 2 weeks. I get the feeling this happens often, too.
For the price you shouldn't expect too much. Its sort of cheap and the top came with a dent in the front corner. Pretty hard to put together, but if you need extra storage and your not going to put it on display, it's ok. Spend a few more bucks to get a nicer cabinet if you are going to put in a living room.
I liked the sonoma set. It was good for what I paid for it. The only thing I have to complain about is the dimensions listed where for the outside of the piece(basically the very top of the piece is the largest dimension and everything else is about 1 1/2 inch smaller) so I could not fit by tv in it.
I found the instructions to be very hard to understand at times, but after two evenings and many hours, it came together alright. One of the side moldings came slightly damaged, but other than that it looks nice and fits my purpose. I feel the price is a little too much for the quality of the materials, but I guess that's what's out there right now.
