I had read reviews on other websites about how hard this was to put together. But considering my husband makes furniture and can put anything together, I figured we could handle it. We could, but it took us 4 hours start to finish. This was partly because our shipment included 2 LEFT DOORS instead of 1 left and 1 right. We had to re-drill the cam nut openings on the other door, along with the screws on the other end, and even re-drill the hinges to reverse the door. Of course, we could have called the company who made it, requested a right door, and waited 30 days for it... but we wanted it done. Now that it's together, it looks great and I think we will love it - unless the right door falls off soon because we had to modify it so much. I would only recommend this to someone who is extremely confident about putting together furniture, can make and modify furniture, and who has all day and lots of help in which to tackle it. Good luck!
This is a great piece of furniture, and it looks beautiful too. It's just the right size to hold both wine and liquor bottles, and plenty of space for wine glasses big and small.I didn't think the instructions were difficult to understand and although assembly did take longer than I expected it to (and there were two of us putting it together), it went smoothly and everything fit together reasonably well. All in all, I love this piece and it has made a great addition to my apartment. I can't wait to show it off!
