I absolutely love the piece, but i have to say it was difficult to put together mainly because you had to line up 8 screws into their exact places all at the same time. It was challenging and took about an hour and half to put together alone. It requires 2 people for construction but i managed to do by myself. Other than that, the piece itself has been a great addition to our house. It's worth the money!
We wanted a small wine rack-bar that could double as a breakfast bar. The size of this was perfect for our needs. It did take two of us to put together, but it wasn't the nightmare that some of the other reviewers seemed to have had. After opening the box and organizing all the parts, it probably took 1-1/3 - 2 hours, tops, and we had a breakfast bar ready to use. It seems fairly sturdy, but will probably not stand up to heavy usage over a lot of years.
NOTE - This is NOT a high quality piece of furniture - there are flaws and other issues that show it is a 'made in a third world country' type unit. For our space, it works fine, however if you are looking for something that is beautiful to look at and will last many years, then this may not be the right choice for you.
You must have 2 people to put this item together. The front panel screws slides out of the holes and you must align them to fold the bar properly. I noticed the wine glass holder was slightly cracked. But for the most I do like the bar.
