This is so pretty, looks more expensive than it actually cost. It was packed well and all pieces were perfect. I almost didn't purchase it because of the comments others wrote regarding the assembly. It was not difficult if you follow directions. We took everything out and made sure to identify all the pieces. Took two of us about 90 minutes and it was done. Would not suggest going solo, it does take two pairs of hands. So glad I bought it!
It arrived well packaged. It has a hand made look and feel. Solid, slight differences from door to door but it gives it that unique hand made look. Clean modern addition to our home.
Assembling wouldn't have been bad if I had had another person helping me, like the instructions recommended. Trying to hold pieces while connecting others, and then flipping it over to work on the other side without another set of hands to support the unsecure pieces was a pain in the butt. Regarding the buffet itself, I'm very happy with it. It's exactly like pictured and perfect for my space. I'm also happy with the quality for the price. Great value.
Overall, the assembled buffet looks great and we are really happy with it. If you get down on your hands and knees, it's obvious that this is not a fine piece of furniture, but we certainly didn't pay for one and it fits perfectly with our glass, metal and wood table and leather chairs. Perhaps there has been an update in the instructions, but we found them very well laid out and clear. We did have to dig to find the instruction booklet, mind you, but the diagrams were clear and the explanations complete and concise. Assembly took about 2 hours. All the holes lined up perfectly. The hardware isn't great quality, but it fit perfectly and functions well. In hindsight, I wish I had used some wood glue for the dowels to make tighter joints. Be very careful not to over tighten screws. It would be very easy to strip some of the holes. If you want a nice looking pieces of furniture at a very reasonable price, and you are semi-handy with screw driver and able to follow instructions, don't hesitate to the this buffet.
