This piece was straightforward to assemble, and looks terrific, though there is a couple of places where it is easy to put the wrong part in the wrong place. In particular, I installed the doors on the wrong sides and upside down. This meant the handles were in the right place, but the break in the edge banding is visible on top of the doors when they are open, and I had to drill new holes to hold the metal to which the magnetic door closures stick. (Unfortunately I could not correct the error by removing and re-placing the doors due to the design of the hinge - It springs into place into a hole, which makes it a one-way operation.) That mistake was on me, which is why I gave the unit five stars for being otherwise terrific for the price. Note: One non-standard thing that I did during assembly was to glue everything together with wood glue. It is solid as a rock as a result, but I do not know to what degree that made it better than it otherwise would be.
I laid out all the pieces on a carpeted floor area and all the hardware into little groups on an end table. A medium screwdriver and a tack hammer is all you need to fully assemble. I would recommend you also have a flashlight for seeing all the areas you need to place screws on the inside.
If you're looking to place your TV in the corner of a room, make sure to measure the corner to ensure you have enough space. Corners are often situated alongside door wells or openings, giving you a specific amount of space to work with. Use a standard mathematical equation to determine if your corner is wide enough to fit your TV stand.
