Wow!!! This piece was delivered in 4 different boxes that were each extremely heavy. Although the instructions say that assembly should take about an hour, it took my husband and I almost 7.... The biggest problem was that the pieces were not labeled correctly so we had to determine what part goes where solely on the pictures. This led to some other problems related to assembly as we had to keep troubleshooting and making adjustments. The assembly manual really was sub-par. With some patience, however, we were able to finally get it looking how it was intended. It is absolutely gorgeous! Seems to be sturdy, durable, and stable. 5-star product, with 2-star directions.
Although the directions weren't great, there were no other problems with this product. My recommendation is that you buy it!
Holy cannoli! The pieces came in 4 boxes weighing a total of over 500lbs!!! We opted to put it together ourselves. The instructions say it should take an hour. They must be joking. Some of the pieces were mis numbered, and we had to decipher which piece was needed based on the illustrations. The bottom piece was not fabricated properly, those circle drop pieces should be on the bottom. The bottom was not secured to the rest of the piece when we lifted it to an upright position (we actually had to break one of the backboards and nail it in place). The instructions do not tell you step by step how to complete the project, nor to put in all of the required screws. Thankfully, my husband was patient and we put this together in about 7 hours over 2 days. Now that it's in place, it looks beautiful. It seems stable. I would give the instructions a 2. Buyer, beware.
It looks great and is quite functional . . . but what a job putting it all together. This piece weighs in at 400 lbs. It is definitely a 2-3 person assembly job and the supplied directions are not the best. The directions say 1 hour to assemble. It's more like 5-8 hours.
Great product and very beautiful piece! The piece is very large so if you're looking for an extremely large armoire with lots is space this is the way to go!
