The bookcase arrived in 3 days from when we ordered it. Packaging was good and the bookcase was easy to put together. It now sits real pretty in our den with all our frames on it. It looks better than the picture on the website and the bookcase is very sturdy and wide. The shelves are deep and can hold a lot of stuff. The price was really what got us to purchase this. It was much lower than anything out there.

I had promised my husband no more assembly required furniture, but I loved the look of this bookcase/shelf and the reviews inspired me to purchase. Arrived wrapped perfectly, little trash to discard of (a miracle for a frequent online shopper), clear instructions and we put it together with a screwdriver and in less than an hour. Clearly labeled and nicer quality than I anticipated. Already full of decor and has a painting and lamp from Overstock on it. I am contemplating one for our living room!
There are lots of pieces to put together but the instructions made it easy, although it took some time to do. The end result was great. I would just suggest looking all of the shelves over very well before starting to put it together. I got to the very last piece (which was the bottom shelf because you flip it over) and there was a bad place in the wood. It wasn't worth waiting on a new shelf so I just put a picture over it.
This bookshelf has gotten so many great compliments!! i love the design and it looks great with just about anything placed in there. i used candle mason jars and little bottles of empty liquor with books and pictures random i know but it looks great!
First of all, this is not fine furniture, so if you're looking for fine quality, keep clicking. That said, I feel this is a good value for the money. The shipment arrived quickly and well packaged. At first I thought they left out the assembly instructions, but found it at the absolute bottom of the package below the styrofoam. The instructions were easy enough to follow and I had it done in about 2 hours, working alone and taking my time. If I were to critique the instructions, I feel they could have been more clear on where to put the included glue. The illustrations pointed to some wood peg holes. Do I just put the glue in the holes they indicated or should I put glue in all the holes? A simple sentence stating whether to fill all the holes or just the particular ones indicated would have made the instructions perfect. Either way, all the pieces were clearly marked and sturdy enough for what this piece is designed for. All the holes were drilled well and the piece came together tightly and sturdy. The color matches the photo so there were no surprises there. The unit is heavy and can be set either way front or backside facing you. If you follow the instructions, the unit assembles with a short cubicle at the top and bottom left and middle right, but I suppose you can waiver from that and mix them up for a slightly different look. I like this piece a lot and I'm looking forward to accessorizing it with books, photos and other stuff. Unfortunately my 13" speakers are too large to fit into the shelves but this will hold anything under 11". If I had one suggestion, installing plastic floor protectors on the bottom of the piece will make moving it a little easier, especially if you have nice hardwood floors. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a solid piece of inexpensive furniture to dress up the place.
This is a a very cheaply made shelve. It came with over 30 pieces of fake wood, stickers and a bottle of glue. Unfortunately some of the holes were not aligned properly so I had to drill new holes to make it fit. It is not worth the time and effort it took to me to put this together but at 91 lbs it was not worth sending back either. It looks good from a distance but this is definitely not high quality.
