The product itself is actually quite nice- heavy and sturdy. The color is a nice dark brown, just what I expected. However, there are so many nicks and dents on it, so it looks already old and ready for the dumpster. One of the edging pieces on the top shelf was completely broken off, and I had to nail and glue it back on, and it still looks cock-eyed. I am very unhappy with the quality of the product after shipping. The box looked like it had been through a hurricane.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate
I absolutely love this piece for my sons room. It's big enough to fit all of his books & baskets for toys! Love it! However, I was very disappointed when trying to put it together, I noticed they had forgotten a whole package of dowels needed to put shelf together. I did not receive the replacement parts until 2 weeks later! I feel overstock should have at least overnighted me the replacement parts.
All was as expected but hard for us to put together. The holes don't match up. Still, for the price....quite the bargin. At least my husband is handy, but I would not have been able to assemble by myself.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? it was the same
Please tell us about the quality of the product. it was hardwood of good quality

Just received this product and I'm debating on sending it back. For those of you who purchased this and were able to assemble it with no problems. Kudos to you. There is almost no way to assemble this without damaging it. The predrilled holes DO NOT line up properly. In order to make this work, we are going to have to go to ***** now and buy some wood glue, wood filler and stain where a place was gouged out and jimmy it together. IF you can actually get it put together, it looks OK, but I would not order this product again and do not recommend it. BUY AT YOUR OWN RISK. You are just as well off to by a particle board version from *******. NOT HAPPY AT ALL right now. I paid over **** for this and it's already damaged and I'm not sure about this being solid wood as the description says.
We purchased this piece for our toddlers books and toys for our living room. The color is fantastic, and the piece is very sturdy however the building instructions were poor, package of screws were missing and we ended up having to follow our own route, and it absolutely takes 2+ people to build!
Wow! I'm a 63 year old female and I actually put this case together in one afternoon. It was very hard for me because the dividers kept collapsing, but I was determined to win this war...and I did. I'm very happy with the finished product. The back panels were not the quality this product deserved and should have had pre-drilled holes. I put the TV on top and had it decorated by time my husband came home from work. It's a nice solid piece and looks great in our bedroom. Mission accomplished!
I needed this to accommodate sewing notions in my sewing room that's also my office and guest room, so needed something better than the usual particleboard products. This is a very nice looking storage bin and my mesh front shoe box storage containers fit perfectly (it takes two boxes). It isn't a heavy duty bookcase, so if you're looking for heavy item storage I don't recommend it.
Now for the bad part: the assembly. The instructions are almost unreadable and totally inadequate. Even my son-in-law, who is an experienced cabinet maker, couldn't figure out how to get it together, so he built a couple more pieces to hold it in place. Afterwards he figured out that we had the cross pieces that make the boxes too far back but that was too late to help.
So: I'd recommend it to a really good friend (I'd help them put it together) but think twice unless you have experienced help.

Does this piece have drilled holes in the inside of the cubbies that are visible when put together? I am referring to the little holes some bookcases have in order to be able to adjust shelf height? In the picture, it appears to have some sort of unstained holes in the top cubbies.marijoy on Apr 29, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
