For the most part, staining was a breeze and it looks great (I recommend doing it with a sprayer)! The only place where the stain did adhere well was on the tabletop. They used a wood filler that is not stainable, would have been nice to know.
I am used to creating, assembling and refurbishing furniture and accent pieces, and I have to admit, assembly at first was a nightmare. The wood splits incredibly easily, I had to predrill each hole and blunt and soap the brads; yes all three actions were required. This must be a common issue as the company sent along extra cross-support pieces.
After I finished assembly, I was still not confident this piece could stand on its own( it does come with wall mounts, but it should still be self-supportive). Luckily, the above mentioned extra cross-support peices along with a little wood glue came in handy to reinforce the structure.
Time, patience and a little wood working skill are needed for assembly. For the price, I was hoping for a little more...a little more strength, stability and quality.
