All of the pieces were perfect and everything went together really easily. The piece is really well made, especially for the price. It took just about 20 minutes to assemble and they even included the screwdriver needed to attach the back cross pieces. Overall, I'm really impressed with the shelf.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Sturdy, but light because of the open design.
I'm glad I bought this bookcase, its very cute and sturdy. It was a bit expensive, but still glad I got it. I have my kids old books on it from when they were little children. It was pretty easy to put together, actually really easy, because my son did it for me :)

This bookshelf is a lot more chic than I thought it would be. My apartment is more eclectic/traditional, so this adds a nice rustic element. The color is true to what you see online. It's off-white, but not too yellow. It's very sturdy. Perfect for a small space or could be a bedside table. I am using as a media console. It was fairly easy to assemble. Took me about 30 mins. I am very happy!
I know some of the reviews say that it is missing several holes for the screws - it is, but only for the back 2 piece that are just for decoration - there are enough screw holes to keep it in place. Obviously if screws were misaligned or missing for the shelves, that would be an issue but that isn't the case. One of the shelves had a little bit of a strange mark on it but it wasn't the top one and my books covered it - the top shelf is pristine. Color matches the picture in my opinion and it holds my books and knick knacks, which I have quite a few of. It seems sturdy enough to me and it looks great in my living room - you get what you pay for - this is a pretty cheap price for a bookcase and it functions and looks nice.
We needed a book shelf for our nursery which has weathered/nautical furniture. The set did not come with a book shelf option. This is great because it's not too big or too small, and the style is just what we were looking for. My husband put it together and it took him longer than the instructions said but it wasn't difficult. It was more just getting all the pieces out and unwrapped and organized correctly.
This item is just what I needed to hold small kitchen appliances in my tiny kitchen. It is better looking in person than online; It is lightweight but sturdy; it is easy to assemble and the needed tools were included as well ! The only negative is the Styrofoam packaging. It crumbles as you remove the shelves so be prepared to vacuum.
