Beautiful Buffet, Assembly a Bit Tedious Though
Mary from Carlsbad, CA – Verified Buyer
We live in a condo, so our cabinet space is very limited. We don't entertain often, but I also didn't want to have to leave all of my wine glasses, serving plates & other glassware stored in boxes in the garage...SO, I wanted to find something that did not take up a great deal of space, however, offered many uses. This works perfectly for what I needed & looks great in our dining area. It also helps save time on preparing for get togethers, since everything is stored in one convenient space. I also use the drawers & center shelves to store extra birthday cards & last minute gifts, so we are always ready for any last minute invites, or in case we ever forget anything. Since I purchased this on sale, I ordered a 2nd one for our downstairs work area. It works very well for storing & organizing art/craft tools & other project materials. It also helps decrease a lot of clutter. I do have to say that the cabinet is a bit on the heavy side & was extremely tedious to put together. We have put together a LOT of furniture & things over the years, but this one was one of the more time consuming projects. Some of the parts, small wooden dowels & pre-drilled holes were not measured properly for one of the buffets, so you may have to improvise a little. The 2nd cabinet was fine though, so it may have just been a minor defect w/the 1st one. It is all worth the work in the end though! :) Just be advised you will need "Several Tools" (you may also want to have some wood glue handy) to assemble the buffet & "Please Be Sure to read the instructions "Carefully". :)

Great value, beautiful workmanship, perfect for my room. Ordered as a combination storage piece, filler for a large room and use at the end of my sofa. Color is as shown online - not distressed or "Shabby Elegance" but rather a rich deep black finish which is even and glossy. Glas shelves are thick and smooth on the edges and fit into backets that hold them securely. All the hardware lines up and is a great combination of modern and classic. Arrived in two large flat boxes, with plenty of padding and protection for the painted surfaces. Arrived on time with tracking available anytime I wanted to check on it. Easy to assemble with the included instructions - all the fasteners were bagged and marked and each piece was labeled. Instructions included pictures and words that were easy to understand. I would recommend this piece to anyone.
Set aside a fully day for assembly

And look/build carefully. The components are solid and instructions excellent in that every component is labeled with a corresponding number and each type of hardware is packaged in labeled baggies. Very easy to organize and follow (my 12 year old son did most of it on his own -- all that money spent on Legos years ago paid off!!), but it IS an all day project if you are working alone. WARNING: we made a critical error, putting one of the outer panels the wrong way, which we only discovered at the very last step, when trying to affix a hinge for the glass door. Crushing after a long day of effort. In some steps, the instructions cautioned against potential mistakes, but not here. Too bad. Also, a few of the hardware items (metal support clips for the glass shelves) appear malformed -- four just don't fit into any of the holes, so we need to get more. We aren't done building yet, but, all in all, it is looking very nice and I'm looking forward to loading it up with our stemware etc. Pros: Good value, very solid piece Cons: Very time consuming assembly; a few unclear steps in directions.

This is a very nice unit in my opinion, especially considering the reasonable price. The fit and finish is flawless. Yes, it did take me a couple of hours to put together, but I will say that having put together more than a few pieces of furniture, this was quite easy. All the parts are labeled and all the hardware is labeled in nice little individual bags. Not all manufacturers are so thoughtful, oddly enough. Lots of storage..I am using it as liquor cabinet, putting a wine rack that I had in the bottom behind the closed doors, some booze in the shelf above, some more on the bottom of one side. Glasses in the side compartments, bar tools and coasters in one of the drawer and I still have room to spare. Would not hesitate to recommend this. Pros: Good value, very attractive Cons: Assembly will take some time.

I bought this buffet for a small city apartment and it looks great--pretty much just as pictured. There is a good amount of storage for its size (key in a small apartment) and the glass adds a nice decorative touch. It did take me a good few hours to assemble (with only a manual screwdriver) but the instructions were pretty clear and only one part was mislabeled (12 instead of 21, I think) A second person is helpful for some of the assembly. One of the cabinet doors was slightly damaged, but there is an e-mail to request replacement parts. Though I haven't yet received it, I did get a confirmation that the request is being processed and a replacement door will be sent to me. All in all, I'm very satisfied with this purchase.

Love the look,exactly what I needed for my dining rm. The only problem was the front bottom middle doors . The gap was hard to fix. With patience it did finally look good. Other then that minor problem it was a breeze to put together. My experience with buying online with Wayfair.com was absolutely wonderful!! Amazing service from all the staff The price of the cabinet dropped after I ordered it, I called to see what they could do about it, Not only was the phone answered promptly , the refund for the difference was immediately done. Fast ,courteous, efficient. Wow, other companies should follow there lead!!!!
Nice Design, OK Craftsmanship
Noel from Spring, TX – Verified Buyer
The main appeal of this buffet for me was the look. It looks exactly as pictured and didn't disappoint. As with any furniture at this price you aren't going to get the best quality. Also watch out for the hinges I got two bags labeled B but the hinges inside were different, this will mess you up if you install them in reverse. Additions I plan to make: - Install black melamine boards behind the middle doors and drawers where there is an air gap. - Mount LED lights above the glass display shelves.
Beautiful piece, mediocre directions
Lauren from Massapequa, NY – Verified Buyer
It wasn't as difficult to put together as I was expecting from the reviews, however the directions are not at all clear at the point where you put the sides and center walls onto the bottom piece and we put the ends on the opposite sides. You only discover this however when you attempt to put the hinges for the glass doors on (which is of course the last step). So be careful you do it right or you'll need to take it half apart like I did. But except for needing to very carefully read the directions I love this. It's exactly what I was looking for.
Allow plenty of time to assemble
Marcia from Grand Rapids, MI – Verified Buyer
Buffet will serve my purpose. It is nice but took a LONG time to assemble. Instruction diagrams were difficult to figure out so I had to keep taking it apart and re-assembling. I have put many cabinets together and this was challenging. Having a second person to help might have made assembly go faster. Many of the pieces were not marked with numbers. The glass shelves and the front drawer panels were marked with the same number. Screws, handles, hinges, etc. were all well identified. Several pieces have deep scratches. Luckily they are not visible once assembled. I think the buffet is a good value.
Solid buffet, beautiful piece.
Kaitelynn from Peoria, AZ – Verified Buyer
Overall this piece is as expected. The wood is solid and the assembly is easy for the most part. The only issues we had putting it together was screwing in the back panels as there are no holes to put the screws so it took a lot of manpower. Also if the adjustable shelf is removed from the area under the drawers, the hinges push the doors too far in. The shelf must stay in place to keep the doors correctly aligned. Pros: great value, easy assembly, beautiful piece, solid wood Cons: difficult to attach back
