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.
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.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Matched with chosen color (black). not the same as the color in the image
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems quite good
How accurate was the on site description of the product? I don't think that "solid wood" is completely correct. It may be completely wood, but it's not planks, it's a compressed wood board of some kind.
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!
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!
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!
So So. No instructions in the box. Phone number to call for missing items was listed on the box but it was "disconnected." I called O and they said they would try to find one and MAIL it to me. Great. Waited over a week to get it and then more for instructions?
One of the small pieces on the sides was broken and I had to glue it back together and put a little paint on it to hide the problem. Additionally, there are scratches and a few nicks that were covered up on the wood before it was sent to me. They are noticeable.
At least it is real wood and it does look ok.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was black as expected
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It is wood and not a veneer over fiber board which is good. But it is a very light wood that is not very strong
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate
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.
