Great buy! Really cool looking and easy to assemble

The shelf looks great, but I can see what other reviewers meant when they talked about it not being so sturdy. Once it's set up it should be able to hold books and anything else you want. Doesn't look cheap, and I had no problems with it being banged up or the finish being uneven, as other people did. All in, I'm quite pleased.

I absolutely love the look of this product, on the website and in my home. Lowes has similar product for $$$ more. Easy assembly, instructions say it takes two and I did it alone, no problems. The only negative I have to say is regarding short support, middle, under bottom shelf. Plastic screw-in bolt support came out on one shelf, I used glue to fix and hope it will not be an issue later. Overall, I am pleased with this purchase.

Very pleased with the book shelf. Was hesitant, because the price is so low compared to other businesses, but in this case it contradicts the old saying, You get what you pay for, because we got so much more. It was exactly what I was looking for. I will definitly be using this company again.

Such a great piece for several different places in the home. I use this in my bedroom, but am thinking of moving it out into the living room for display purposes. The wood is very nice color, and was super simple to put together. I did it in about 45 minutes by myself which was surprising. So far haven't had any complaints with the item and am very satisfied with it and Overstock. Perfect corner piece!

This is the first product I purchased from O that I am not happy with! Wood had small split on spine, the joints were difficult to connect. The wall screws were very short and cannot support the weight of what the photo shows. The anchor bolts are not suitable to fasten properly to the wall and the screws do do match longer screws if you want to attach longer crews. It was too much trouble to return after you put it together. Bottom-line: Junk.

The book shelf is very sturdy and well built. My only complaint is that that the edges were left raw on many of the boards, and I spent a lot of time painting them black with a marker. Aside from that, it was easy to put together and looks great.

Appearance on ladder book shelves is great, especially for the price paid. As long as they are assembled right & placed right on a wall should hold alot of load.. Great buy!

I am very satisified with this ladder book shelf. I love that it is solid wood (rare these days...). The shelf is blacker in real life and looks very polished and classy. It brings my entire room together. All in all, great purchase for a great price!

I have been looking for black ladder book shelves for some time. I have seen some that were too expensive. I found these. I purchased 2 of them for on both side of my flatscreen tv on stand. They look really good since the stand is almost as high as book shelf. Easy to put together. Plenty of room for books, pictures and etc.

I was very disappointed upon receiving my ladder book shelves. The color was inaccurate and the material was very flimsy. Also the screws and wooden pegs did not fit into there allotted slots correctly. I spent serval minutes and also ask my boyfriend for help; A-last we were unable to get them to fit and gave up,

I had been searching for a ladder book shelf ffor months when I came across this one. I was a little worried when I read the reviews because everyone kept mentioning it wasn't very sturdy, looked cheap, etc. I definitely disagree. It is a gorgeous peice of furniture and very sturdy. I have about 20 books on it, tons of picture frames, and some nick nacks and have had no problems. It has a very rich color and goes perfectly with all my other fuurniture. I am very pleased with my purchase!

Ordered two to fit side by side in master bedroom for wall unit effect. Quality of wood is excellent, shape and design aesthetic very nice for a "ladder" book case. Expresso color is warm and rich. deeper shelves on the bottom now house my wireless printer and larger books. Have built Ikea and other Overstock pieces for years and never had difficulty, unfortunately these instructions reversed the number for two side frames and overall was very difficult to assemble especially alone. Finally paid a young man to put them together and so they look fabulous!!! Very happy with product and OS delivery, well packaged and bubble wrapped, instructions could have been clearer.

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.

These are perfect for my needs. I did not want heavy-looking all wood book-cases as I have wood floors and a large wood mantle in my living room. They are strong, easy to assemble and I like the design w/crossbars on the back. I especially like the open, airy feel and the size of the shelves.

This little wood book shelf is a nice fit if you only have small spaces to put items or books. I was specifically searching for something to put away "clutter" and childrens' books that we keep on hand for our grandchildren. This fit the bill! I was disappointed that it required assembly--that was not made clear on the description. It doesn't look overly prefabricated once built and it does feel sturdy. The stain color is not too dark. It arrived in good condition but it is susceptible to nicks and scratches. I recommend having a touch up pen available. I think it was a bit over priced but because it comes with the low shipping fee-it balances that out. This shelf holds our printer on the top shelf, notebooks and papers on the bottom shelf and several chldrens' books in the middle portion. This is a decent alternative to a tall book case that takes up more space.
