Ok, once itis all put together its nice. You cant use power tools to put it together. It takes forever and my hand feels like it is going to fall off. I followed the directions and the top two shelves on either side seem as if the holes drilled for the pegs for the shelves are not exactly level with each other..... Not terribly noticeable at a glance but since I put it together I noticed. It easily took me three hours alone to put it together. It is particle board hence why the no use of power tools. I tried and it made me start to rethink all of my life decision up to that very moment. Plan for a good chunk of time for assembly if you are alone. This was also the second piece of furniture of the night after work that I decided to put together so that may be why it took me so long. It is pretty esthetically.
As a parent of little people, we know better than to buy expensive furniture. We bought this to use as a tv stand. When it was all put together I was so taken aback at how sturdy and heavy this piece of inexpensive furniture was. The design, of course, is not actual wood texture, but a piece of laminate over particle board. And although I was skeptical, it doesn’t look super cheap or super fake like I thought it might be for the price it was. Disclaimer: does not withstand moisture. Haha one of my little people set juice on it and spilled and now there is a raised bubble, warped spot. But like I said, we know better than to buy expensive furniture with little people around
This console was delivered, we started unpacking the pieces to put it together and there were two boards inside that were bent and cracked. Reluctantly, I thought I was going to return the piece but I was really hoping they could just ship out the two broken pieces. However, once we were deep into the directions & putting it together, I realized that the two pieces were put in the box to prevent damage to the actual console.
