I was a little nervous about putting this together but overall it wasn't bad. I took the instructions 1 step at a time and put it together in about 4 hours. Although it is suggested to have 2 people I managed to put it together myself. I laid out all of the pieces and went through the instructions first, which made it easy. A power drill also made the job much quicker. The dresser looks great, the color is beautful. It has a lot space both in the drawers and on top. Overall its beautiful piece and a great value!
