not the easiest to put the chairs together. it is time consuming if it is only 1 person doing it. the instructions are not that great on telling you positioning of legs of chair, and the pieces that connect to the legs, etc. they could be marked, a,b,c,d & matching with the holes. it would make things much easier, but the chair pieces arent marked. however, once you get the first one together and fit, it comes along. i purchased several additional chairs for a bar area, so i may have added additional stress lol. other than that, i LOVE the table! color, height, sturdiness!
