We purchased this table for the front hall of our house. It was very easy to assemble...just the four legs needed to be screwed on. The drawers were pre-assembled and simply needed to be placed in the slots. There was some minor damage to the back of one of the rear legs, but it is well hidden. The table is beautiful and sturdy, and so far is holding up to the daily abuse it takes from my two children, ages three and 18 months. Excellent value for the price!
