Plan on Some Extra Time To Put This Together
It will depend upon who you ask, as to whether or not this changing table is easy to put together. Here is one of the comments on assembly that includes a tip in case you also encounter this problem. The customer said,
"My husband put it together in about 2.5 hours, which could have been less if another person held the corner pieces while the other screwed them together. The bolts, nuts, and screws are heavy duty and appear to be made of brass. The organization of these parts was very impressive. They came on one piece of cardboard individually sectioned off and labeled. So you don't have to search through multiple bags to find all the screws, etc. The drawers slide into a metal/steel guide, with steel wheels...The one problem my husband encountered was the bottom piece that he connected the changing top to he connected upside down...be aware of that because if flipped the wrong way you will not be able to fit the sides into place with the pre-drilled holes."
Drawers May Not Fit Right
There were many mixed reviews on the drawers. People liked that there were drawers. Many changing tables only have an open shelf area. It's nice to have drawers that close so that you can shut belongings in. However, there were many reports of the drawers not closing properly.
Here is a comment from a customer about the drawers not fitting right,
"The drawers don't fit. The rails that hold the drawers up are about a half inch too low, and so the drawers don't close, but just hang off of the front. It makes in nearly impossible to use them because they don't seem to be of very good quality to begin with and having to push them up and over the lip derails them every time you open or shut them.
The Athena Leila 2 Drawer Changer is a sturdy changing table made from wood parts. It's not solid wood, however, most people felt as if it felt solid and sturdy. A major flaw and the biggest complaint of this changing table is that the drawers don't fit properly. I hope that my review can help you decide if you should try the Athena Leila 2 Drawer Changer.
