I love this piece in our living room. It is large and provides shelves for pictures as well as perfect slots for TV and video components. I love the fact that whenever we want to change things up in the future we can turn it into a bookshelf and it is so unique for only being made from wood! great buy!

I live in a small space so I needed a multi use piece of furniture to set my TV on as well as display my pictures. This piece is perfect. I was a bit intimidated at first to build it as this was my first attempt in building anything. But 3 hours later it was built. This was a great find...I love it...!!!
I love how narrow it is yet sturdy enough for my 42" tv. I get compliments from anyone that has come by because it was perfect for my small space. Only two things I don't like about it are the cheesy stickers to cover up the screws and the fact that it is not black as was indicated. I had even contacted overstock because the description referenced three different colors and they said it was "black". Also a bit of a challenge to hide all of the tv cords, etc because of all the open space. I am still happy with my purchase.
I love everything about the cabinet: it is sturdy, it looks great behind my sofa, and it was worth the money. The directions, on the other hand, were horrid. I have been putting things together for 30 years but this nearly had me throwing in the towel. We had all the boards in the right places but things kept coming up short. We took it apart at least 4 times before flipping boards front to back and getting it together. They need better markings on the boards showing directionality. I also refused to put the plastic sticky things over the screw holes, bought half inch wooden buttons, stained them with a dark walnut stain and fit them into the holes. It looks so much better with the buttons. They should be included at the price.
I received the package very well packed. Easy to put together, well for my husband that is :). The instructions were very clear and all pieces were numbered so they were easy to find. Once put together the display / TV stand looks AMAZING in the space.. It also gave the room a different look, a look I fully agree with.
This unusual TV stand/bookcase is just what my living room needed. I am using it horizontally as a TV stand, and it is very attractive. It also houses large art books upright, which no other bookcase has done. It is not difficult to assemble if one lays out all the pieces and proceeds carefully according to the markings on each piece and the instructions. I highly recommend this piece of furniture.
First it is Expresso/Dark Brown. its perfect for my living room. I bought two. One for my T.V. and the other for my books and decor. Easy to set up, my 15 year old put them together, enjoys putting things together (under my supervision) Only problem, wish it had some backing, hate to see all the wires and bare wall. My simple solution is creating cloth coverings in different colors (cheap and easy to do) and adhering it to the back.
This is a great buy,but be warned you must have some knowledge on measurements and assembly. The instructions do not give you much to go on, so you will need previous experience with putting furniture together. Once we figured it out and put eveything together................We love it!

Product arrived very promptly, just 2-3 business days. Well wrapped, no damage. It's fairly large but I was able to put it together by myself in about 3 hours. Recommend reading their instructions, as they suggest, all the way through first before starting to put it together. Really like how it looks and I was pleased it was quite simple to put together and definitely considering getting another one.
We were looking for a piece of furniture to put behind our sofa, mostly for reading lamps and a bit of storage. It needed to be exactly the right height, width and depth for the space. This fits PERFECTLY. It is sturdy and attractive enough not to hide behind a sofa. It took my husband about an hour to assemble. He mentioned that everything fit and lined up well, but took an unexpected amount of force to piece together. Not a complaint, just a comment. Sounds like I could not have done it myself. Overstock's price, especially with a coupon code, was very reasonable.
Very well designed down to the packaging. The directions are the only reason I did not give 5 stars. They are pictorial only and do not show the screw holes that are not used in the current step. Read all the directions twice, then go for it. I am pretty good at this kind of construction, just need a good screw driver. The screw hole covers are cheep decals, but they work and one cannot see them when it is in use. It is very dark brown, the pictures are pretty (on my monitor) accurate. They can stand on any side (there are no feet included) and I am seriously considering buying more. The quality and sturdiness of design are great.
This bookcase is fantastic. I use it in my bedroom for my tv, books, jewelery box and still have roomf or more personal items. If you are looking for a nice and sapcious book case this one is for you.
