As the other reviewers stated, the instructions to assemble are just poor pictures. Although Mine appears red and maroon, the paint looks inconsistently spray painted on. The smell of the paint also has not disappated in the two weeks that I have had this. On the bright side, all of my pieces were included, and this buffet has proven to be sturdy. I really needed an inexpensive piece of red furniture so I am keeping this, but definitely would have returned it if it were cheaper.
My son put this together and although it took some time to assemble it, the result is an attractive and sturdy piece. However, if I had to assemble it myself I would likely dropmy rating to 4 stars. But its clean lines, and timeless look adds just enough modern elegance to your home. I placed a large painting over it, a lamp, picture frame with feaux hydrangea plant on top of buffet. Note: There is only one sliding glass door in front so some items will be exposed in either the left or right open areas of the buffet. Then again, it is probably a feature that makes this buffet neat.
Took us two 3 hours to put together one of the buffets. 3 hours for the other. They went together smoothly, all parts were there except for one screw which we had a similar one on hand from other projects. I feel it takes two working well with each other to put one of these buffets together. I tried doing first by myself, but needed another set of hands about mid way through. For the second buffet we did a few things differently from the first as we put parts together but in all we followed the pages of directions. Luckily no major chips or cracks in the wood parts though a few pieces have edges that are marred from I guess pressure points being in the shipping carton. We are using these two buffets in our large bedroom turned computer room for hiding storage boxes of computer stuff and techy books, their looks work well with our painted bookcases, desks and metal office cabinets.
I really like the tall cabinet. the only drawback was that it was not really white like I expected its kind of eggshell white. The handles also lose their paint very easily. Other than that I really like it.
