Tip: Flat pack furniture is a great bargain for a DIYer. Because it's easy to ship and store and there's no added assembly cost from the manufacturer, you get a lot of quality for less money.
Collect tools and materials.
Tip: A multi-purpose tool will simplify the job.
Use packaging as mat to protect floor.
Before assembling, lay out all parts in order in which you will need them.

Tip: Use double-sided tape to corral screws and hardware.
Tap in dowels with soft mallet to prevent damage to wood.
Trim excess edging with utility knife.
