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.

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

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.
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.

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.
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.
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!
I needed two 4' bookcases to fit on either side of an entertainment center -- not for components (the entertainment center has plenty of shelves) but to store other things like books and baskets of "stuff." I found several 4' bookcases but most looked really cheap, had a finish I didn't like, or were too wide (I needed 2' wide). These looked PERFECT in terms of size, and they are. My entertainment center is ivory so I was going to get black as a contrast, but the lamps I'm using are a deep bronze and I thought they'd be too dark on the black, so I crossed my fingers and went with ivory (very hard to match different shades of "ivory"!). Alas, the color is slightly different -- the bookcases are much brighter (much closer to white) than my entertainment center, but they are pretty close, and if it ever really starts to bug me, I can just paint them black. Assembly was very easy -- took maybe 15 minutes for the first and 10 for the second, but then, I'm the type who reads the instructions over about 20 times before I start as I am not mechanically inclined in the least. I do wish that the screwdriver they included was a right-angle one, as I have relatively small hands and I still had a bit of a hard time tightening the bolt in a couple of places. Not a big deal, though, and certainly not enough to take off any stars! I am very happy with my purchase -- in fact, I may buy 2 more (in black this time) for my living room.
This bookcase is adorable! Yes, it is rather small but that came as no surprise as the dimensions described are accurate. It is also a bit pricey compared to most other furniture of its kind, but it is well worth the money. It is solid, it came in perfect condition, it was super easy to put together (it literally took me about 7 minutes since there are no small or cheap pieces), and the little details like the rubber coated shelve holders and side details make it a great buy.

I like that this piece looks like I paid more for it than I did! I had trouble with a panel in which the hole was malformed but Overstock sent me a replacement and it fit fine. I really like this!
