I'm not normally the type to put anything together but liked the look and added storage of this item so took a chance and ordered it. It was a little tricky putting some of it together when it's just one person holding the pieces and using the Allen wrench at the same time but not too bad and got through this stage okay. The bottom bins are another story altogether as the bolts enclosed with the product did not fit the holes drilled so I ended up just fitting the rattan pieces in their places without being assembled. I can't use these as drawers as they have no bottom but it looks good. After putting in the work to assemble the metal part I wasn't about to dissasemble it and send it back even though the storage drawers could not be put together. I don't know if I would recommend this item to a friend.
