I purchased two of these units. They are an expresso dark brown which is exactly the color I was looking for. These are nice looking and each took about 60 minutes to build between two people. The drawers roll well and the furniture is crafted of good materials. We have placed these in a guest room. The issues I found with this product were as follows:
1. Two screws were missing for one of the units. The screws are needed as the support for one of the drawers. We will be unable to put any weight into that particular drawer until we are able to purchase the screws to remedy the problem.
2. Another issue with the units that I had is that our baseboards are about 6" high from the floor. Therefore the back of the drawer does not clear the baseboard and the top of the bookcase is unable to lean against the wall as it is intended to do. Rather than returning the two ladder bookcases, which are otherwise perfect for the look and design of our guest room, we have decided to build a platform out of 2X4 pieces of wood and a flat plywood for each one to raise them enough to clear our baseboards. The platforms will be painted in black to match other accents within the room decor.

This is an awesome bookcase with storage drawers at the bottom. A very pretty cappuccino finish and great construction. We are going to add another one soon so we have matching on each side. The price was perfect and so was assembly. It took me 15 minutes to put it all together and I am not very handy.

Every review that said this took under an hour and was done by 1 person is written by the manufacturer. This took about 3 hours and 2 people were needed for about 75% of the steps on the manual. Also, it may say that it's only 12 steps, but there were at least 6 different steps going on in Step 8 alone. The wood is flimsy and was easily torn through by a screw. The hardware isn't labeled properly. For something that cost nearly $@#% much more was expected out of the product. I would never buy this product again, and will never recommend it to a friend.
This bookcase looks great in our sitting room. Just the right size and color, a very deep brown. I expected the materials to be of higher quality due to the price, however, it is still nice. Only time will tell how it holds up. Overall nice product, I am happy with the purchase.

We ordered two of these ladder bookcases with drawers as night stands next to our Overstock 4 poster bed. They work terrific! It took us about an hour to put together the first one, then 45 minutes for the second. Assembly instructions were very clear. If you have tall floor moldings, you won't be able to get these snug against a wall. Also, there is only about 12.5 inches between shelves, and only about a 2.5" set back from shelf to shelf, so be careful in planning what you put on each shelf. We had to put our lights on the top shelf, since they wouldn't fit between the shelves.
We just recently bought this for our expected babies room. I absolutely love it. It feels very sturdy and sits well against the wall. The drawers roll very well and it took the hubby under an hour to complete on his own. It's really the perfect solution for someone who wants a modern twist to the ominous/heavy bookcase.
Hello texagbrad, I really like bookcase! The drawers are not large enough to hold hanging file folders; the internal dimensions are 20 inches wide x 12 inches deep x 4 1/2 inches high. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 2, 2013
Hi, any chance this has come into stock? I'd be really interested in knowing the depths of the 4 shelves (counting the one that is the top of the drawers). It looks like they're probably roughly 13", 10", 7," 4" judging by the overall geometry and how big Amazon says those display books are :) but I'd love confirmation. Thanks so much!qwertyzero on Aug 24, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
