The item arrived in a few boxes but they were packaged nicely inside in Styrofoam. All pieces and parts where there, and there was an extra screw given for each kind. I started putting this together on a Friday night and only got the frame done before I got tired. I finished up the next morning and it took me about 3 hours by myself. Some of the diagrams get a little confusing (and I ended up putting the drawer tracks on the opposite side - which was an easy fix, although highly annoying). I do have to comment that the wooden dowels to connect the pieces BREAK easily so there was one piece that I couldn't use it on - luckily it wasn't anything for support so I didn't mind too much. Also, one of the legs had the teeth on the screw fused together so it wouldn't screw on to the base. I tried to get creative with a small saw and tried to make it work. After about 20 minutes of frustration I was going to call OS to get a replacement part, but I gave it one last try and it finally screwed in (albeit a little warped). I also had the same issue with this dresser as I did with the nightstand - the backing piece that gets screwed into the back doesn't align perfectly - so be careful when you screw it is as it may damaged the wood on the inside. This happened in a few spots, but since it is "out of sight" (inside) I didn't mind at all. The top piece also had what looked like scratches on it - but I think it's just an imperfection in the wood itself as there is no divet of a surface scratch. Other than my assembly issues, I really love this dresser, especially the mid-century mod legs... cannot say that enough. I'm probably going to switch out the knobs to a brushed-nickel knob to give it more pop.
