It is a sturdy and attractive piece that does not look like something I assembled myself. Rich color and sturdy frame. Instructions are generally good, however, they can be a little tricky. The direction of the shelf has to be right so that the finished side shows. I put them in backwards the first time. Other than a little confusion over that, it was very easy to put together. It helps to have two people.

The quality of this bookcase is wonderful. It looks like an expensive piece despite the low price.The bookcase is rather small and looks best on a wall only slightly wider than the bookcase itself. We had tried it on another wall that was still only about twice it's width and the bookcase just looked tiny. The shallow depths of the shelves added to this illusion. It looks best in a little space where we relocated it. The height of the shelves are slightly adjustable, which is nice, but taller books had to be laid on their sides because it is still a pretty short bookcase to accommodate 4 shelves. It is a perfect transition piece for our 10 year-old son's room to take him out of childhood and all the way through his teenage years. He likes the new grown-up look it gives his room.
The only problem I had putting the item together was screwing the back of the shelf on. I wish it had predrilled holes , I ended getting blisters from holding the screw driver and applying force. But over all it's a very nice additonal to my living room., I'm enjoyng it.
I purchased 2 of these bookcases and was extremely pleased with both. They were great quality and will be lovely in my house. Only one little problem was a 2 inck crack on one of the end pieces..I used wood glue and reversed the side so it was in the back..not a bad enough problem to send it back... I was really surprise because the packaging was really good as well.

I like it. It is smaller than I thought, but that is just my fault, I can't picture sizes if the objects are presented alone, not contextualized. On the other hand, the bookcase looks nice, very nice actually for the price, and it seems sturdy.

Is the actual shelf depth 12" or is this the overall depth of the top of the unit? Also, have you any units that are 48" H, 32" W & 14" ? Please advise, thanks.menssana on Jan 21, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
