Having read some really negative reviews for this line of furniture I was a little apprehensive about buying, but all I can say to you is be brave! Yes it is a flat-pack item, and yes it will take you some time to get it put together but the end result is very pleasing and you can feel proud of yourself afterwards.
It arrived really quickly (2 days after order and with free delivery) and all told it took my husband (working on his own - one has a bad back you know!) 4 hours to put it together.
We made the decision not to put the 4 black studs on because we think it looks nicer without them and you can't see the holes where they're meant to go unless you get up close and you're looking for them,
However there are a few negatives for people to be aware of.
1. DO NOT trust the guide holes for attaching the doors. I believe this is a problem others have had looking at others feedback, they were completely off - but with a little common sense and some patience you can get the doors fixed on properly.
2. There is a lot of screwing together to be done and, in particular, the guide rails for the drawers, can be a bit fiddley and require a long, thin screwdriver we didn't immediately have to hand - but a quick visit to the father-in-law and that was soon solved.
3. I've seen some comments on other items about the colour of the wood not being consistent, and I must admit at first glance I was a bit troubled to see that half of the front looked like someone had polished it with shoe-polish! (I can only assume it's part of the "antique wax" finish and it wasn't applied evenly...But do no despair!Read more ›
final session. Leaving the doors and drawers to final session. Follow the drawing, OK, but there are one or two parts of the assembly, that you should note.
1. The doors. I thought, fit the clip on the bottom of each door, insert the clip into the receiver on base of the sideboard, and it should be self-aligning and just attach the hinges to the frame, and that's it. Wrong, wrong, frustratingly wrong. I removed the receivers, then lined-up the door hinges using a liner (piece of card-board) on the bottom of the door frame, to allow about 3/8 inch clearance. Then, contrary to manufacturers advice, used a small, battery powered drill, with a small bit, and using the (already) attached hinge on the door,to make holes (just a few mm deep) in the frame.. Success, it worked. Additionally I used a piece strip of "sticky tape" on that liner.
Fiddling with these doors was time-consuming, but twas worth it. The finished product is solid, the wood colour is quite acceptable
so, no polish. I'm pleased with its appearance, and worth the price.
One other piece of advice, most (95%) of the dowels are too small, consequently, they tend to slip out when moving the different sections. Or, it could be the dowel holes were drilled too large.
I would recommend the side-board, even for a single-person assembler.
I purchased 3 small magnetic touch bolts and receivers for outside, on door, to keep doors closed.
