I can’t comment on the assembly, my hubby had it put together by the time I came home from work. It was a wonderful surprise. Fast Delivery. The picture doesn’t do it justice- it really is beautiful, heavy – great quality, and more affordable than other places I’d seen this style table.
Maybe once I get a bigger place in the future, I’ll add the bookshelves and side table to it. The bottom shelf at the bottom is so useful. Love it, don’t even hesitate, it’s worth it.
