Read the other reviews. This is a good size construction project. I have built many things and I am pretty handy with tools. I usually never need instructions and that is a good things because the ones that came with this were dismal and in a couple places wrong., I spent about 5 hours building this and I was very disappointed. I chose to put it in my garage and painted it white to cover the cheap faux wood finish.. The drawers have sliding rails that are so cheap they should be ashamed. I would have tried for a refund but I tossed the packaging before I realized that the chest was junk.
