This is a very nice and sturdy bar cabinet (once all installation steps are completed) A few of the installation steps aren't spelled out exactly. So a few times you have to use your brain and think of it like a puzzle. Mainly When you are attaching the back you have to flip it in a certain direction to get the angle needed to attach it. I put it together alone and took my time with it. Okay, I really took my time with it. Watching TV etc.. but it took me 3 1/2 hours to put together. If I had to put together another one and I really focused I could probably get it together in under 3 hours. 2 hours if I had an extra hand. The toughest part about the installation was attaching the doors. If you have someone to hold the doors while you screw it in you will complete the task much faster. The door seams are a TAD off but that is probably because I didn't have anyone hold the doors. So get an extra set of hands. Tools needed. I used a drill a few times but a battery powered screw driver really helped me out on this one. If I had to screw everything in by hand it probably would have taken another half hour to complete. There are a lot things to screw into place. The battery powered screw driver worked nicely because they aren't overly powerful so I didn't damage the wood. Quality is good. It is wood that is painted silver. Photos don't really show that in great detail. I was worried about the legs but once I had everything put together it is very sturdy. They do provide you with wires / brackets to attach to wall for safety. But it stands upright nicely and has weight to it. Around 100 pounds. Packaging was good. The mirror and tempered glass shelf is packaged in a box that is very well protected. You will need some room to put this together there are a lot of parts, but again if you take your time, your patience will be rewarded. Cheers.
The piece went together well, and looks nice. The top piece does not lay down flat one one side, but is barely noticeable. The color however looks more black than brown, and we are now faced with figuring out how to stain or paint the fibreboard to get it to match our dark brown furniture.
