Initially, my hubby was going to assemble it all by himself. But whenever I popped in for a look, he would ask, "You wanna screw these in?...." or "Can you put some glue on the pegs and pass it to me?..." I didn't mind helping him and it did go by faster with an extra pair of hands.
The desk and hutch were assembled separately and then we had to put the hutch on top of the desk. IT WEIGHED A TON!! We looked at each other and there was NO WAY I could help him lift it and line up the holes and pegs and screws! So we waited for my daughter's big, strong boyfriend to come over the following evening.
Here's a photo of how it looks one day after it was completely finished. Only my Copics have found a spot on the top and I did some stamping on it last night. I have to decide where my "go to" supplies will go and be accessible. I still found myself going to the den to use my paper trimmer......Will post a pic later when it's "pretty"!
