After receiving this cabinet, my husband unpacked and began to assemble it. Unfortunately, the doors were the last to go on, and when he picked them up to install them is when we saw the chips and gouges and peeling on the tops and bottoms of the doors. By then it was too late to send it back because most of it was already assembled. So we attempted to glue the peeling, fill the cracks and gouges and bought a color pencil to try to cover the patching. We were extremely upset and disappointed in this cabinet, and aren't sure if it was packed that way or if these things happened via the shipping. It would be nice to have the ability to order replacement doors.

The bookcase looks like the picture, however after assembling I would not have purchased it. The underside of the shelves are unfinished as is the cabinet top. This is clearly visible and undesirable. The product arrived shrink wrapped and upon opening it, the top and one side panel were damaged. Overstock was very agreeable to assisting me but they could not send only the replacement parts, they had to send an entire new unit which I would need to return after changing out the replacement parts. Since the box was minimal and I could not shrink wrap it to return it, I declined this option. I received a partial credit for the damage which I appreciate, but I am stuck with a "Uninspired" unit. Do not purchase.
This bookcase is a piece of junk. It arrived today and the first thing I saw when I started taking it out of the box was that corners on two different pieces were damaged. I didn't expect top drawer material at this price but did expect it to be useable. Nowhere in the description did I see the back of this unit is made from thin paper that has been either painted or stained on one side. It was folded in the bottom of the box and I nearly threw it away, thinking it was part of the packing. It isn't much thicker than a piece of print paper. I haven't assembled it yet and am wondering if I should bother. I do not see how this can possibly hold a book or any other object in place. I am greatly disappointed that Overstock would sell something like this from their site and I am now re-thinking the others items I had planned to order in the next two weeks.
My husband and myself put the cabinet together with very little difficulty. We put it together in the living room. We placed sliders under it and slide it into his den. It will fill the purpose for which it was bought. It is not an expensive piece of furniture, but as I stated it will fill the bill for what we bought it.
