  • Good quality accent piece

    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
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? excellent
  • Great product.

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

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? good
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. good
  • Just OK

    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.

  • you get what you pay for

    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.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? it matched
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. fair quality
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? accurate
  • Decent bookcase

    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.

  • nice looking but smelly

    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.

    Item is well made and easy to put together. Fits nicely in space it was bought for. Probably a little overpriced. After I purchased this item I found it for $$ cheaper.

  • Nice bookshelf!

    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.

  • Excellent

    Easy cheesy to put together until you get to the shelves which is usually the easy part. Just make sure that the direction is correct, and you should have no problem
