We recommend to follow the instructions and to screw all parts tightly together. Please accept our apologies for any disappointment this may have caused.
if you are planning on matching this with other walnut items get something else. this is sooo not the right color. does not match any of my walnut items. had to put this in the garage cause it doesn't match anything and I didn't want to mess with the hassle of returning it. the quality and look to it are not imprressive either. very cheap looking. get something else.

Went together in about 1/2 hour. I had to have my husband muscle one back brace because the pegs didn't align exactly with the predrilled holes, but some muscle and a little wiggling got it done. I like the stand a lot.

Paint is a flat black, I'll probably touch up with black gloss. It is wood, looks like plywood. The shelves are all solid wood, not compressed or particle board. It will support the weight of all my cookbooks without warping. Good solid piece at a lower end cost. Looks nice too. Easy to put together.

After reading other reviews on this item, I went ahead and ordered 2 bookcases for my home office. I was looking for a bookcase on a budget. That is exactly what this is - a budget bookcase. It fits my needs and it looks OK. If you are looking for a high end piece of furniture then you would want to keep looking. It was relatively easy to put together and had it completed in approx. 15 - 20 minutes.
I got two of these for my living room. They are a great solution to organizing my daughter's coloring books and puzzles in bins and add a cool style. They are good weight so we can load them up. I've gotten so many compliments on how great they look!
On a side note, Scandal is my favorite show and Kerry Washington's character has the larger sized version of this bookcase in her apartment!!! I knew there was a reason to love this design!!!
Thank you for your inquiry. Currently we do not have a matching side table for this book case. We do have several to choose from that will look quit nice with this. Type in espresso side tables, or which ever color you are looking for to match the book case. Thank you for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 10, 2014
The backs of the shelves are the same as the fronts and the sides because the shelves are solid hardwood and not plywood or MDF and so it is a finished wood all the way around. Thank you for shopping Overstock.com.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 19, 2013
Thewood finish is all around. That is why I did not realize I started on the wrong side. All the pieces have wood finish on both sides.monuine on Feb 19, 2014

Hi calmseas2, thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately Overstock does not weight test our items; typically this type of bookcase holds up to 15 pounds per shelf. While this item may be able to hold more weight on each shelf we do not recommend it. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 12, 2013
