Although this piece of furniture is beautiful, it took alot of hard work to get it together. The assembly process is tiresome and took hours with my husband, many times leading to immense frustration. The individual furniture pieces are labelled alphabetically, and the hardware numberically but it would be really helpful for labelling to include 'front/back' and 'top/bottom', as almost all of the pieces are finished in a stain and it is hard to tell which should face forward. If you are not handy and don't have patience, this item is not for you. After over 8 hrs at it, we gave up altogether and we are having a handyman come to assembly the doors as we can not get them to hang correctly, despite taking the hinges off several times and putting them back in alternating positions.
