Why did you choose this product?
While the product has some superficial flaws (tiny paint imperfections and a couple of rough surfaces), they are real wood, sturdy, functional and very good looking. I bought two of the shelving units for my home office (in black) and they hold numerous books, photos, and various knick-knacks very nicely. I'm very pleased with this purchase....

I have put together 6 different items for our living area and nursery in the past 2 months, and these 2 units were by far the worst in quality and ease of construction. To begin, the color was completely different from the pic and the staining was uneven and it appeared to have some sort of dried glue or something smeared along long swaths of the finish. This was not so noticeable that I was willing to go through the hassle of returning, so I moved on to putting them together. This was awful. Something that should have been easy and straightforward turned into a 4 hour blister inducing ordeal since the screw holes not only did not line up, but were all drilled crookedly and at a fairly steep angle from the horizontal. Once put together they are fairly stable, but not great, look ok. For the price these are absolutely not worth it.Read More
This bookcase arrived within a week of ordering it. The color is darker than I thought it would be but it is OK. I assembled it by myself in about an hour and it went together beautifully. I suggest you assemble it on a table top or work bench. The Allen wrench that is included is not really strong enough for the job so I suggest you use a stronger one. I had no problem at all with the screw holes lining up. Every one of them was perfect. The bookcase is very sturdy and the shelves are full of books. I am very pleased with how it all went together.Read More
This bookcase is a great disappointment. I "mis-Ordered" a previous bookcase which turned out to be the wrong color and had to be returned--but at least it was almost 50% less expensive than this one. This one was difficult to assemble because a number of the predrilled holes did not line up and once assembled is wobbly. I have two other black Mission style bookcase which I wanted to match, but would return this in a heartbeat if I hadn't spent so much time and effort putting it together. I'm usually VERY HAPPY with Overstock, but not this time.Read More
The (black) bookcase is working well for us. It replaced a larger sofa table piece of furniture and we appreciate the smaller area this bookshelf takes up. It is plain and does not in any way overwhelm our other family room furniture. Books on shelves are in good order and bottom shelf also holds a small music system. So glad we ordered it!Read More
Some of wood damaged on corners and scratched and multiple screw holes did not line up. With good help I could not assemble this properly. End result was wobbly, not all screws in properly, very disappointing. Hoped to put this in living room but didn't--now strictly a lousy storage thing in closet. Wish I could have returned it! And allen wrench quit half-way through project. Do not buy this! I am usually very pleased with over-stock, not this time.Read More
This Bookshelf was very nice looking, easy to assemble and is very sturdy. The directions were a bit sparse, so I would recommend laying the pieces out first to be sure everything is in the right direction and the top shelf is on the top, etc... We were able to assemble this in less than 60 minutes! Also, delivery was very fast and without a scratch!Read More
This is a pretty good shelf for the price. I bought it because I liked the airy open design. My house has pretty low ceilings, so I don't want to use bulky, heavy-looking furniture. Despite the open design, this shelf feels pretty sturdy. I'm storing mostly books on it. I used common sense when I loaded up the shelves (ie heavier books on the bottom, progressively lighter things above). It was not hard to assemble. I did it by myself (with a couple beers) in about an hour. One bad thing - the little allen wrench they give you starts wearing out (ie the corners start rounding out and it becomes more difficult to turn the screws) with the last couple screws. It felt a little rickety while I was building it, but when it was all put together and standing up, it seemed much more sturdy. It does lean forward a little, but that may be due to my thick carpet.Read More
The Mission -style Solid Wood Bookcase was fairly easy to assemble (putting the shelves in place proved to be challenging because this is supposed to take place before the back of the shelf is attached). While the shelf is lightweight, it takes up very little space, but I am able to attractively display all my knick-knacks. The shelf is sturdy, it appears to be durable, and I'm considering purchasing another!Read More
Bought two of these. They are solid wood--that's the good news. What happened to me, I hope, is a fluke. In one of the boxes, I had only one top stabilizer for the mantle (instead of two) and an extra back support board, which was the same dimension, but drilled differently. As I did not have time to wait for another board to be sent to me, I re-manufactured the part with a number of complicated tricks and without a drill press. I would not wish that on anyone--nor would I recommend anyone attempt what I did.Read More
Questions & Answers
Price is great. Quality and style is everything I wanted. However, I was looking for an oak finish, but settled for the black finish since that was the only finish available. Thank you.
What is the tallest size books that can fit on the shelves?
Thank you for you interest in the Mission-style Solid Wood Bookcase. All though we do not have the exact measurements on hand because it is not in the warehouse were we are located and we cannot go and grab the paperwork from the box. We have on the other hand done some research and the shelves are roughly 15 inches between each of them. That is a pretty tall book to be able to fit in there. we hope that this was helpful information and thank you for your business. Have a great day.
Hello, what's the weight capacity of the shelves. Looking to use it for hardcover books. Thanks!
These shelves have a 30-pound weight limit.
the pictures show this bookcase in two different colors, I am interested in the natural maple color, not the cherry color - how do I know which I'll be getting if I order this?
