I ordered this as extra storage for a large kitchen panty that had an empty space. The size was perfect to slide into that space giving me additional shelves. It looks very good in that spot. My complaint is that I searched the site for wood bookcases and this came up in that search. It didn't say it was pressed pieces of wood. The directions were incomplete but I managed to assemble it easy enough. (61 year old female here) There aren't any feet or protectors on the ends of each supporting side which could cause problems because it isn't painted either to protect the exposed particle board. Any dampness would seep right in causing swelling. For the price, I was disappointed. I've paid less for real wood bookcases and got real wood.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was white as pictured
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Was represented as wood, but it is particle board and not very good quality particle board either.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? It was accurate regarding color and size but was not accurate on materials.
The product arrived very quickly, was undamaged, and was easily assembled. Its not a terrible value for the money but it looks only a little better than the pressboard furniture sold at Office Depot. I bought real wood shelving a couple of years ago at Staples for half the price of this furniture. It was much better quality, real wood boards with varnished natural grain boards. Unfortunately, that furniture was no longer available. The shelving on this furniture looks more like pressboard with a wood veneer. It does not look or feel like a "solid wood" board. The frame appears to be solid wood with the same veneer.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? good match
Please tell us about the quality of the product. something in-between particle board and real wood
How accurate was the on site description of the product? My opinion is that the term "solid wood" is misleading.
