All of the edges had to be filed to a smooth finish. My children (16 & 13) used hot glue and it took them about 8 hours to get all of the furniture together. They did not paint them.
I didn't relize that you had to build the furniture yourself! If I had known that I would have ordered it earlier and worked on it way before two weeks before Christmas! If you have the time and you are handy this is the perfect set for your childs doll house. You can pick the colors togather and make it togather.
