It was easy to assemble and the color looks just as the photos. It did have lots of stickers to remove, but those were part numbers, so no worries there. I put a piece of glass on top as this is in the entry at our beach rental. It was level and not rickety.
I love the wood stain (which is a little darker than the image). The design is what I wanted. Reading the reviews, everyone had an easy time putting this together, but this was the opposite of our experience. Being new home owners, we have become well versed at assembling furniture. However, the quality of this piece was such a let down. While assembling, there were several holes that would just not line up and others that were completely missing. Because the holes did not line up, there is gaps between the top shelf and the sides on two corners. This piece was too expensive to look so off
This bookshelf is a pretty good size and the quality overall is great. There was a slight imperfection (scratch) on the top, but seems like more work than it's worth to contact Overstock for another one. It wasn't too hard to assemble and feels sturdy for holding books. It's a good size to double as a console table, which we decided to do. For us, the shelves serve more of a great purpose than a few small drawers that would hold a lot of small odds and ends on your typical console/sofa table.
I bought this bookcase to fit under my window in my new bathroom. I loved the open design because I didn't want a heavy piece of furniture to close the space in but I need the surfaces for storage and decoration. This was perfect! The color looked just like it does in the picture and it blended perfectly with the rustic wood tile floor. It is sturdy and was was to put together by myself. I would buy this again.
The bookcase serves my purpose for having something that is open on all sides rather than a completely closed shelving unit. It is the exact size that I was looking for. It fits in neatly to my home office.
