The assembly directions are very good. It was easy to assemble.
It's designed to attach to the matching cabinet. I didn't b
uy that piece, so I manipulated the backing to work as a stand alone piece on the floor. Top edges are unfinished, so I colored the 3 of them in with markers. I use the top as an extra shelf.
The unit is quite heavy, so it would be helpful to have 2 people assemble and move into position.
The color is not as brown as shown; the finish has much more red, mahagony tones.
