The instructions advised that it takes "2 persons" to put this baby together but I successfully assembled it independently, to my surprise! I was slightly nervous when I saw the instructions and began to put it together myself but, it was simple. I'm sure the time would have cut down drastically given that I had an extra pair of hands. I like it a lot and it sits nicely in my kitchen but my biggest complaint is that the sliding door (as mentioned by other buyers) is not as smooth as I would like it to be. Needless to say, I'm happy with it.
This buffet is of very good quality and the contrast of the woods is very nice. Overall, I am happy with it. The little feet do need to be attached by the buyer and it is easy to do, but this is a heavy piece of furniture so you might need help.
This is a lovely cabinet with lots of space. There are a few drawbacks for the average online furniture buyer(me). This arrives in 3 boxes that are each quite heavy. You need to have an idea of how to put furniture together. You MUST pay attention to which doors go where. I put it together after work one night(the night it arrived;) and I was not paying enough attention. The doors don't close if they are not correctly placed as designated by a letter of the alphabet. You have to use the legs. I was going to put it under a window without the legs, but there are hardware pieces and metal supports underneath. I'm not complaining, I just hope you have an easier time putting this together after reading about my experience. It is attractive and we are happy with it.
I'm not new to assembly, so I'll say if you're a novice...grab a friend. I'm a 43 year old woman and did it myself. The reason they can offer free delivery and low-cost furniture is often why you have to assemble. So if you can afford to skip that step, then buyer beware. I'm not made of money and up for a challenge, so... Anyway It's a beautiful, on-trend grey. Not too far a blue-grey or brown-grey. I'd describe it as a very transitional piece. I use it as an entry way cabinet, so kids throw their backpacks and basketball shoes in it and, so far it has taken the abuse. It would be great as a tv cabinet and buffet alike. I'm very pleased with it.
