I was horrified when this item arrived and the box was long and FLAT. Urrgghhh... it needed assembled. After reviewing all the information on this item I didnt see anything that said it needed to be assembled, so I engaged in an online chat with a customer service agent who also reviewed the product information and saw nothing to indicate that this item would need to be assembled. He assured me that if it doesnt note that assembly is required, then it only requires minimal assembly like attaching the knobs or handles, etc. The actual cabinet assembly wasnt too bad, but it was very difficult for me to attach the doors. The instructions didnt give details on how to attach the door and the picture wasnt clear. After several attempts and a scratch on the front of the cabint door from a failed attempt, we finally got the doors attached. Now adjusting them... there were NO directions on how to do that, so that was difficult as well. Once assembled and adjusted so the doors line up, I really do like the cabinet. It meets my needs for our home office. I think the price was high considering that it wasnt assembled. I wouldnt have paid that much for it if I knew that in advance.
I bought this entire set for my new office space. It does take a bit to put together correctly but if you take your time and follow the steps it's not too bad but does take at least 2 people. It doesn't seem very sturdy and when we put feet on it to protect our new floor the "wood" on each leg immediately cracked and had to be filled in. I'm not sure it will be a great everyday desk yet, we'll see but it is pretty but I still think for the price it should be better.
