This is a beautiful console. The delivery took a little longer than I wanted to, but it did come before the estimated date (I was just anxious). It was perfectly packed, no dents on the box, and the parts were intact, now the fun part: ASSEMBLY. Just impossible, My husband has assembly quite a few pieces of furniture, but this one got him.
The instruction are somewhat clear, and there are really not too many bolts and screws. The pieces are connected together by hinges (I think that's how they're called), and you have to assembly the whole thing, but leave it loose to adjust, and then get all the parts to connect by GENTLY TAPPING, we had to hammer the parts for a good hour, and still couldn't make the parts fit right. My husband was was ready to return it, (not me, I loved the way it was comming together, and I was not the one frustrated) but we couldn't disassembly it either, it was stuck!! So we kept hammering the panels and applying pressure (pushing the panels down while hammering them) until it was just low enough to place the top part, and still, we had to both sit on top of the console and basically jump on it a few times until it went down.
Then the placement of the dawers is quite confusing, but we figured it out. But don't get discouraged, maybe we just got a bad batch, I read all the reviews and most people didn't have a problem with the assembly. Is a really gorgeous piece of furniture, just want I wanted. I can't wait to finish decorating and show it to everyone.
