This was easy to put together. I am a 61 year old female and it took me about 3 hours. Electric screw driver was helpful when putting all the little screws in the back. For a compact bathroom this was perfect with the sliding doors. They don't have to open up and take up more space. It holds a lot of towels. To answer former questions, the inisde shelfs are about 9.5" inside. Top is about 13 inches deep and and rest is about 12 inches on the outside.Very good space saver.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Exactly
Please tell us about the quality of the product. As expected. All wood except back as expected.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate
I wanted this for my kitchen, and it fit PERFECTLY! I put this together myself and I'm 8 months pregnant, so needless to say it was SUPER easy. Directions were very clear, almost everything was predrilled. Thin enough for my tiny kitchen, but deep enough to hold boxes of cereal and such. They give you anchors to attach it to the wall, but it sits on the floor so solid, I didn't feel the need for them. Exactly as seen in the photo. I'm loving it.
I used the dimensions provided to determine if it would fit in the needed space and it was a perfect fit.
Assembly a bit like an IKEA project - no words just pictures. Went together well looks really nice not like
a home assembled product. The doors move smoothly
It is a a nice piece and provided the missing storage in our guest bath.
I received this product on 02/04/2014. The instructions are easy. We assembled the product in less than 2 hours. According to the instructions the doors are mounted on last. When my husband and I attempted to mount the doors on the hinges they would not align perpendicular along neither the right nor left side of the book case. We used a level, removed the ball legs, ensure everything was balanced and leveled. The doors were defected. I would have rated the product good if it were not for the doors. I would only recommend this product if one knew how to alter the doors if defected without reconstructing the entire bookcase.
I think the product is cute - it seems pretty sturdy, it was easy to assemble, but .... it is completely made of particle board. It says wood in the description, but it would be respectful to a buyer to list that it is particle board. The doors are on little wheels and seem pretty sturdy, but the set I have the wheels are not perfectly balanced (they arrive already assembled with the wheel system) and so the doors do not sit perfectly flush. They also slide a little too easily - when you close one side, even pretty lightly, the other door may slide open. Its best to close them very softly.
Overall the product is cute, but does look inexpensive. I think it's better valued at $XXX, certainly not at the $XXX+ range that was listed as its regular price, when I purchased mine (why does it fluctuate?). I purchased mine for my office for storage, and it works fine for that purpose, but it does appear much nicer in the image online than in person.
I was disapointed that the product arrived damaged but when I talked to the manufacturer they were easy to deal with and stated they would ship the replacement piece ASAP. I may have missed this key item in everything I read but I was not aware I would have to put the bookshelf together. However, it did not take long and I had the necessary tools to complete the job. I feel I was misled regarding the unit being constructed of wood. In reality it was made of some type of wood composite. Overall I am satisfied with the unit and feel I got what I paid for - an inexpensive bookshelf for use in my home office.

I ordered this a few days ago but don't have it yet. Does anyone else have an opinion on this? Below someone wrote that it was "cheap looking". I paid $369 instead of $150 to get real wood so it would not look cheap. Would love to hear more opinions.condo2013 on Apr 16, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

return it now.. it made of cheap partical board and so tiny, not worst the moneyibee on Aug 9, 2013
I am confused as to how the shelf depth could be both 12" and 9 1/4" deep. The interior shelf/useable space question was asked twice and received different answers.amyh302 on Apr 10, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I am definitely not an expert but if you look closely at the top and bottom they both are wider than the actual internal shelves. Then include the back and the doors that take up some of the internal space and the 9 1/4" has to be more accurate. This has been the case on other selves with doors that I have purchased. Hope this helps.condo2013 on Apr 14, 2013
