  • Different experience to the bad reviews...

    There aren’t a whole lot of options when it comes to this style of bookshelf/room divider. You can order something made of real wood and pay 5x the price or you can order this. Just so you are aware this product is made of MDF it’s similar in assembly procedure to most MDF furniture made by other brands such as Sauder, ClosetMaid, and the like. On the upside the MDF thickness of the shelves itself is far beyond anything I’ve ever seen at a retail outlet such as Target, Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, etc. One support is made of thin MDF which is about the same as your standard MDF furniture you can get at those locations but it is the small support. The product shipped quickly, and arrived at my home with minimal damage. There was a bit of a scuff on a few pieces, and one dent. But I assembled the product in a way where those would not be visible. The instructions weren’t all that great, but if you’ve ever assembled this type of furniture before you really shouldn’t need them. I took my time assembling the shelves, and made sure to use some gorilla glue in the dowel locations (buy separately) because of other reviews that mentioned the shelves were unstable. The assembly procedure involved using a phillips screw driver to install the hardware by hand and then I tightened it via cordless electric screw driver to a torque of about 9. This resulted in a pretty darn stable bookshelf. There was no wobbling, and moving it by myself didn’t cause things to crack or break like other reviewers have mentioned. On the downside of things the bookshelf laminate looks like it was poorly done. The laminate is actually visible on the corners where 2 pieces of laminate meet and it looks like it will age poorly. Additionally the hardware I received was missing a couple of pieces. And I’m not a fan of how poorly the actual chrome bars between the shelves attached…it was far too loose for my liking. For the price I think this shelf offers style & stability. For some additional cash like money for Gorilla Glue, white touch up paint (to fix any blemishes), and some wood epoxy (to tighten up the fit for the chrome bars) which shouldn’t run you more than $15 you can have a pretty nice looking/sturdy shelf. If you want to go the extra mile you could spend a little more for some good paint and you’d have something that looks and functions as good as the bookshelf that costs 5x more.

  • The World's Most Interesting Bookcase

    Honestly, I fell in love with this in the catalog, and I wasn't disappointed when it arrived. It's good quality, and it looks fantastic. I only have two minor complaints about this item. First, it should have probably come in two boxes instead of one. It was very difficult to get everything where it Second, the individual shelves are not quite tall enough for all the books I want to put in them. As I said, really minor complaints. Aside from that, it's been good. It's attractive and solid, and I expect it to be good for some time to come.

  • Good purchase

    Overall very happy with the shelves, I purchased two. Liked the style and the overall look, looks great paired together in my living room. Assembly was easy, just takes a little time when you do it alone. Only suggestion I would have is to have all sides colored and no raw sides: when you put the shelves together some of them did not come exactly together so you can see the part of the would not colored, I had to go over with a black marker. There were some scratches on some pieces of the wood but it gave it some character. Overall pleased w/purchase

  • Beautiful Piece

    The order came very quickly. The instructions were very clear but it did take some time to put together. It was hard to do by oneself because the entire bookcase is very tall and I had to stand on a couch to put the last shelf on (I had to build it vertically instead of horizontally because of the small amount of space I had in the living room). Other than that the piece is beautiful, the wood is pretty sturdy i just wouldn't shake the entire thing too much.

  • Solid shelf, easy assembly

    Assembled pretty easily and tons of great space available in my office now.

  • Looks cheap

    It looks nice on Overstock website, but the quality is very poor. Looks cheap with low quality wood. Not recommended.

  • Unique and modern

    Love these bookshelves. I wanted something modern for our entryway sitting area/library. I ordered the ones in white, and I love the combination of white and the metal bars on the sides. We also bought 2, and side-by-side they almost look like 1 unit unless you look close, which I also love. The only possible downside is that you can't adjust the height of the shelves, but that's not a big deal to me. They were very easy to assemble and I love the finished look.

  • Zig Zag OK

    It is a cool look...the shelves are thin pressed board and not standard in notebooks won't fit on them unless they lay down...ok for small objects but not good for office use

  • Handsome shelves

    These are really handsome book shelves. A bit different from the usual plain book shelves, easy to put together although instructions could have been a bit clearer and bigger type. I bought two of them to go side-by-side and they really look nice together. I like the fact that the shelves are a bit thicker than any shelves I've bought before which makes them, along with the metal pole inserts, look like a more expensive unit. I was surprised how lightweight the whole thing was. I managed to put it together all by myself. Nothing was damaged at all upon receiving, was well packed and protected. I would recommend this shelving unit to anyone who wants a bit of a flare and style to their room. I don't think it works as a room divider though because of the way it is set up. I bought the espresso color and it's nearly black but goes well with my decor. Very happy with it and it's very roomy for all my books and nic-nacks.

  • Love it

    I love this piece. It's exactly what I wanted and looks even better in person. It's sturdy (though a wall anchor is a good idea), and it was easy to assemble.

It is finished on all sides, but the way it's styled I don't think it would work as a room divider. (The back has the short boards that wouldn't work as a front) Judy88 on Nov 29, 2014

Is this shelf reversible (as in, is the paint coated all around the unit, not just the front)? Would like to use it as a room divider at the foot of my bed and want to make sure it doesn't look unfinished on one side. Thanks! timbucktieu on Sep 16, 2014

Answer This Question

Hello, jess531. This is a dark brown. It's a color that is described elsewhere as "cappuccino," which is not quite as dark as an espresso finish, but darker than most chocolate browns. I hope this was helpful to you. Thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 19, 2014
Darkish brown - definitely not black but very stylish. finecomm on Mar 18, 2014
