The product is very pretty and would be very cool to have in a kids room. However I ended up having to return it for several reasons. 1. Even though I asked Babyletto directly if having any type of baseboard molding on the wall would effect the ability to secure it to the wall, and they said no, that they had never heard of such a thing, I could not safely secure the bookcase to the wall because the baseboard is about a half an inch thick and the shelf could not rest flush against the wall to be screwed in. 2. The bookcase was so heavy that had the insecure installation cause it to fall on my child it would cause serious injuries.I have a hard time lifting it, its that heavy. 3. Two of the branches of the tree came defective that didn't line up properly, and I had to wait for replacement pieces. 4. The quality isn't great and the piece dings, scratches and scuffs very easily. Its really a very expensive bookcase for not great quality, which I am surprised coming from babyletto.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was white
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Two of the branches did not attach properly so I had to send back for new ones. The drill holes didn't line up, and the shelf scuffs, scratches and dings really easily.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate.
We have baseboards so after seeing the review with the customer having issues with the thick baseboard, i hesitated to purchase. But after my husband read the review, he was convinced there was no way it would be a problem so i purchased. The bookcase was very easy to install and the bottom trunk part sits flush with the baseboard and the 2 other holes to screw to the wall were extremely secure and tight especially with an anchor. The bookcase doesn't even jiggle when my husband stood on one of the branches even though the tree part wasn't perfectly flush with the wall. This is one of my favorite pieces of furniture in the house and i have gotten so many compliments. We like the minimalist, clean, modern look so this goes really well with the house. We put this in my daughter's nursery and since all the furniture in there were hand-me-downs from her older brother, this really made the entire room pop. We were able to stack all the colorful Dr. Seuss books and her collection of lamb stuffed animals...for now, just decorative purposes.
