I bought this piece for a guest bedroom. I was most concerned about the color, its hard to find colored bookshelves and I needed a particular hue of off white. The color is perfect for what I wanted. The quality was better than I expected. It goes together very easily - did it in about 15 minutes and you cannot tell its a self assembly - all the fasteners are hidden. Its very sturdy, takes a littel muscle to move once its assembled. The only complaint I have is the shelf feet. These are the little feet that goe into the holes that the shelves sit on. The feet themselves are high quality, metal with rubber coating, butthey dont fit the holes well - the holes are too big and they fall out unless the shelve is sitting on it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? very good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I am typically skeptical of put it together yourself furnituire but the quality of this piece was better than I expected. It goes together in a way such that you could not tell its a self asembly piece. All the fastener are hidden

Super easy to put together. It took me less than 15 minutes to assemble it by myself and it appears to be pretty sturdy.

Make sure you know the dimensions. it really isn't "tall" for a "tall bookcase". Upon taking the pieces out of the box I found a broken piece. i called and emailed the manufacturer and never have gotten a response. We made it work anyway. The paint job is very poor. oh, there are no huge defects, but there are alot of places where there were air bubbles in the paint, and if you look closely you can see where they popped and there are small "holes" in the paint. It would have been too hard to put it all back in the box to ship back so we used it in a back workroom instead of in one of the front offices like it was ordered for.

The top of the bookcase was split across the top (through the delivery maybe?), two of the shelves were a little too big and scratched the sides when put in. It is easy to put together though, and I like the style & color. I think the price is a little high for what you actually get.
It's a little narrower than I expected it to be, but it holds all the books and things I wanted to put in it. It was very simple assembly. But the finish on the wood has a very strong chemical odor, I had to sleep with the windows open last night because the smell was unbearable. I hope it goes away after a couple of days.
Decent little bookcase. Assembly was a bit of a pain as one of the screw holes had been painted over, but it seems pretty solid after that challenge. It's not perfect, as there are a few not-too-noticeable dings and sloppy paint issues, but overall it's pretty nice.
I needed a white book shelf for my daughter's room. The style is excellent, and easy to put together. The quality is acceptable though not superb, as it's not all made of real wood. Also, it's pretty small for the price, therefore a 4 star.
This book case is just adorable! Measure out 48 inches tall before you purchase. I am 5'3" and it measures just about up to my chest. I ordered the ivory and it is soft and very pretty. But it does mark up easily if you have anything sitting on top like a lamp or trinkets. I would suggest putting a place mat or doily of some kind. The sides have cute panel detailing and the top shelf has a soft arch that is a nice detail. Just make sure you screw it in tight when you put it together - assembly was easy too.
This is a nice shelf. Bottom fixed shelf came cracked in mine and Overstock was RIGHT THERE with a replacement. Major applause to O.co for that. The finish on this has a touch of a strong varnish or oil based odor to it. Not caustic, noxious or anything... just "there" Wearing off though. The thing is sturdy and level and holds my books and junk so 5 stars there.
Book case is a perfect size for my daughters room, which has a sloped ceiling. The shelves are equil depths apart. I wish one of the shelves was further apart for taller books, but I made do by putting the larger book sideways. Sturdy and attractive. Bookshelf looks perfect with my daughter's bedroom furniture. The sand color is a light beige and works well with her cream colored bedroom furniture.
I ordered 2 of these and they are excatly what I needed. I was looking for something taller for a small room but I liked the look of these and they actually worked out very well. I measured the areas where I would be placing them so I knew what to expect. They were easy to put together and they look fantastic. Only problem is that the company shorted me on 4 of the shelf brackets. The instructions do not give a phone number, only an email. I emailed right away that I needed just 4 shelf brackets. No response. I gave it 10 days and emailed again. No response. Ended up going to Home Depot and buying 4 universal shelf brackets. Kind of a pain, so as much as I liked these, I would not order from that particular company again since their customer service is lacking and there are lots of other choices on Overstock. Thankfully I wasn't missing a whole shelf or anything!
