I was very hesitant to purchase this etagere based on the 2 previous reviews (their comments was that the quality was not great). I decided to take a chance and purchased it. No regrets. Looks fantastic and most importantly - it came damage free! Pros: 1) Comes completely assembled. 2) Color and measurements spot on as per website. (note the black color is very slightly distressed in certain areas) 3) Looks great and high value for what I paid. (I think I got it when it was on promotion for 10% off) Cons: 1) Not the sturdiest - but for my purpose it's just fine. When you take it out of the box - the shelves kinda falls opens - like a ladder and hook onto the rungs of the etagere. Overall - super happy with my purchase. Hope this was helpful.
I really want to give this 5 stars. The piece is everything I was looking for. It fits my decor perfectly!. It's sturdy. It is exactly as pictured, right down to the distress marks. HOWEVER, it came damaged, I am assuming a manufacturing flaw. The one hinge was completely bent and actually unhinged. Due to the fact that returning an item this size would be quite a task, I opted to fix it myself... I did. Bottom line, however, is that for this price, something as simple as the hinges should BE intact. If you're a do-it-yourselfer maybe take the chance. Otherwise, I would wait a bit for the manufacturer to read this and fix the problem...

I initially ordered this and received it with a damaged shelf. It could have been packaged better and seems to have an awkward shape for shipping that causes machinery to bang into the box at a vulnerable spot. However, customer service was very helpful in getting a new on shipped out to me. The second box had damage in the same spot but not so much that is went all the way through to the shelf. But generally speaking about the shelf itself....I like the height and width very much. That was the key factor for me in the original purchase. I think the quality could be better for the money but I purchased it with a discount. Overall, Im happy with the purchase. I think finding quality wood pieces is har today.
