Do your homework

The low rating is not for the piece of furniture, but the bait-and-switch tactics of this company. I ordered the castleton brand corner tv stand, which looks suspiciously similar to the sauder barrister lane stand, but claims to have an optional x-shaped shelf. I did thoroughly read the reviews before purchasing, as should any online shopper, and strongly suspected that I would be sent the sauder unit instead of the ordered castleton unit. I was right, and came home to find the sauder unit sitting on my porch. The tactic is to get you to pay $30 more for the EXACT SAME UNIT just because one has a picture of an X- shelf and one doesn't. Go read the specs on both units - they are identical. ONLY BUY THIS UNIT IF IT IS ON SALE FOR A CHEAPER LIST PRICE THAN THE SAUDER BARRISTER LANE STAND. Otherwise you are getting ripped off. The two items are the same piece of furniture and both will come with two horizontal shelves and one X-shelf. The option is to put one horizontal shelf on each side or both on one side with the X on the other. Don't be misled: this is a large piece of furniture, and one horizontal shelf on each side leaves you with a lot of wasted space. That's why I opted to use the X-shelf despite it being the worst fitting piece in the whole unit. Gravity holds it in place rather than the loose pins, so it can be hard to hold together as you put it in place. Otherwise, I am very happy with this stand. - it gets 4.5 stars. It took me about 2 hours to put it together by myself, and I didn't have too much trouble getting the molding joints to line up. The best suggestion I have is to get all of your screws in place tightened almost all of the way down when attaching a piece. Then get your edges lined up and hold it in place while tightening the screws the rest of the way with the other. Maintaining good alignment throughout the process is key to a nicely assembled unit.
Beautiful & well made

This cabinet was just as shown; the color is a beautiful drift wood tone with areas of light & dark in the wood grain. I love the hardware on it which is a pretty oil rubbed bronze. My husband and I (mostly my husband) put this together in a couple of hours and the directions were easy to read & understand. The construction is very sturdy which I was very happy with. It fit snugly into our corner and gave us a lot more room in our small living room than our previous tv cabinet. We chose to have shelves on both sides as shown in the photo and not do the 'X' shape on one side, but we did try that out first and everything fit right. I noticed other people complained that some of those pieces for the 'X' were miscut, but we didn't have that problem. Everything fit together perfectly. We're both very pleased all around with this piece and highly recommend it! Great value for the price!!

This is a beautiful piece of furniture. I love the weathered looking wood. There is lots of storage and it is very sturdy, especially for a piece that needs assembly. The box is quite heavy, as is the piece once completed. Before purchasing, I read complaints that people felt it was difficult to assemble. I have to disagree. If you are at all accustomed to assembling furniture (in this era of Ikea, who isn't?) then you will appreciate that these directions are very good. It took some time to assemble (maybe a couple of hours) but was not difficult in that everything worked out as the instruction manual described. The pictures and directions were very clear. So, don't let assembly scare you away, just set aside the time and you will be very pleased with the results. Great price for this lovely piece.

Definitely sturdy and love the color. Matches other distressed furniture in the room. Took long to assemble but not because of difficulty, just a lot of parts. Tip: Decide whether to put the left side shelf straight or on a diagonal BEFORE putting on the back. I installed it on a diagonal then changed my mind but the shelf won't come out from the front. I'll now have to remove the entire back (tons of nails) to change it.

I live in a small apartment and needed a corner tv stand to go with my offset furniture. You have to completely assemble this item and I have to say the instructions were thorough and easy to follow. I was able to assemble this with my tiny screwdriver and hammer in a few hours. Two brackets were missing to complete assembly but it wasn't a big issue at all. The furniture was kind of heavy but I was able to assemble it completely by myself with no issues. Now that it is assembled and set I am very happy with this piece. Love the color and the piece looks like a good quality set. The shelves behind the glass door are set at awkward distance apart and won't hold much or will only have room to place stuff on one shelf, depending on how you set it. I like the 'X' shaped shelf on the open faced shelf. Overall so happy with this piece and everything I've purchased from wayfair so far.
time consuming assembly
lori from Aiken, SC – Verified Buyer
I bought this cabinet because I loved the color. When it arrived the top was cracked and the unit had a funky cris-cross shelving set up on the left side. The assembly for these shelves didn't make sense and I have no idea what we are supposed to use them for. The unit in the Wayfair picture was different so I am not sure where the issue was. We contacted Wayfair and they did an outstanding job to get us a new top and these sort out the shelving difference. Overall if the unit would have been the one we ordered, we would have loved it even though the assembly was tedious and time consuming (approximately 3 hours).

Very happy with my purchase. I would suggest two people to put it together as this would make it easier.
Perfect piece for our space, color was just what my wife wanted.

Had a bit of damage to crown molding pieces on the upper sides. Luckily, they are on the back edge so not visible. Couldn't construct the piece with a shelf on the left side as pictured above.. Was only given pieces to make an X opposite the door. Don't know how that happened. Great value, relatively easy to assemble. We have at least 6 other pieces from Sauder in our home. Would probably not hesitate to order some again. Glad we found Wayfair online. Pricing was better than than the local Furniture To Go Store. We did run a bit of a risk in having it shipped direct to our home. Probably pretty heavy for a one man delivery driver.

I really like this tv stand. It is sturdy once it is all together. When I first got it the picture on the box shows and "x" to the left of the glass door. I thought I received the wrong product. Upon closer inspection I saw the small picture with the horizontal shelf. My only issue (& it is minor) is that the glass door hangs a little low and I have to lift it to close it. I have the hinges adjusted to the highest height, but it still hits at the bottom. Not a big deal for me as I don't open and close it much. The electronics that are in there stay in there with no need to access it.

I love this TV stand although Wayfair sent us the wrong stand. This TV stand pictured is what I ordered but was sent the other TV stand by Barrister that has an X shelf. I did not realize the mistake until after it was assembled and I looked up my old order. I decided to keep the other TV stand because I did not want to deal with the hassle of returning an assembled piece of furniture. Besides that and the fact that I overpaid and received the slightly cheaper TV stand, I am happy with the purchase and very happy with the product.
