Even though there are instructions included in the box at times they are not exactly clear as to what gets screwed into what and what screw to use. It can be very frustrating. There are furniture assembly services you can hire to put your new furniture together. If you decide that you want to do the furniture assembly yourself, here is some information that will help to make the job a little easier. First make sure that you have a clear area where you can unpack the pieces and where you can work. You do not want to try to work in the same area where the parts are because something could get broken or the wrong parts could be put together. Make sure that you have a small container to put the screws and hardware in so they do not get lost. Next open the box, and lay all the parts out. Check against the sheet to make sure that you have all the pieces. Read the instructions completely instead of reading and then doing what was said to be done in that step. This does take a little more time but it will help you know exactly what you are doing.
Look at the pictures of the screws and hardware and match what you have against the pictures so you know what goes in what because you do not want to try to force the wrong screw into the wrong hole because you could damage the item. Use the right tools, which is usually just a screwdriver Do not tighten all the screws until you have it all together and then tighten them as tight as they will go.
