I read other reviews before buying this, and it's true that it'll take 3-5 hours to assemble if you do it by yourself. It says you need a phillips head screwdriver, but you really need a power drill -which is good because there's a lot of hardware and the wood you're drililng into is strong and good quality. If you just use a regular screwdriver your hand is going to fall off about 15 minutes into assembly. This is a very big piece of furniture and taller than I thought even though i knew what the measurements were. I'm extremely happy with the purchase and would do it again. It's beautiful and looks much more expensive than it is. Be sure to carefully read the directions and look closely at the pictures. They're small and it makes a big difference where certain holes are and which way small parts are facing. But if you're on the fence about getting this - do it, and you'll be happy. Just get a buddy to help you put it together and it'll go faster.
