This sturdy shelving unit has five fixed and reinforced shelves providing plenty of storage space. A powder-coated metal and birch veneer construction gives these shelves a beautiful antique look....more
This shelf has a few quality control issues as in the shelves do not match well. But they do have metal supports underneath which is better than most. There are a few visible gaps in the welds and the screws for the top shelf are way to visible. But for price and function I recommend it.

I have seen this book shelf for sale at other "discount" online retailers for hundreds more than I purchased it at Overstock. I put it together myself and it took about an hour. WIth two people it would have gone faster. It was not hard to assemble. I put the unit in my kitchen and use it for cook books and displaying enamel wear and baskets. The grey is antiqued and the wooden shelves are Vermont Maple if matched to Minwax online color chart http://www.allreclaimedwoodfurniture.com/wood-stain-color-minwax-water-based/
This shelf would fit in with industrial,country or classic decor. It feels sturdy and I think it looks expensive. My husband loves it and everyone who has seen it compliments it's looks.
I was quite disappointed with this bookshelf. I read so many reviews and was looking roward to this shelving unit.
First, two of the shelves came damaged so I have to awkwardly place books over the scratches. I was also disappointed with the color of the shelves themselves. The color hints more towards golden that true rich brown. I compared the pictures to a separate piece of furniture I purchased on O.co and they looked almost identical in color, but in person they are least three shades off.
I was also not happy with the color of the frame. It's silver, but the black overlay is very streaky and you can see the lines from the horrible paint job and doesn't look worn or antiqued.
Overall I think this looks nice online and from a distance, but not from up close. It is sturdy and can hold many things and is a decent buy for the price.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? the wood is more yellow and lighter than the picture
Please tell us about the quality of the product. decent for the price
How accurate was the on site description of the product? the dimensions were correct
This bookshelf is a great deal. I, a middle-aged woman, easily assembled it myself and it is very sturdy, even now that it's fully loaded with books. I did need the loan of a drill to start the pilot holes when screwing in the shelves, but that was manageable. The style is elegant and fits perfectly with my Hemingway in Africa decor (well, okay, that's just what I'm aiming at). Much more attractive than the usual solid wood bookcases, without losing the "solid" feature.
Took longer than expected to put together by two people. Seemed to be poorly cut so that it was hard to line up the pieces for installation. But once complete, the piece looks just as I expected and fits in well with our decor. Very sturdy piece, hopefully lasts a long time.
As the title says I'm On The Fence. Have ordered LOTS from O and have loved every purchase. Orleans shleving delivered tonight(early as usual which is great) but don't have time to assemble. But reviews were mixed about coloring so I opened smaller box to see color of metal cause I was worried about that most. Nice! But the color of shelving compared to website is way off! More of a cherry/red which was very disappointing and not like the darker wood tone displayed. Again' I've ordered lots and colors have always matched. Have never returned anything to O so Iand I'm nervous about opening rest. Great value and style is right so I'm considering redoing the shelves to get the right color. Stay tuned.
I don't know specifically, but we're using this as our toy and book shelf. Each shelf is holding at least two moderately-heavy baskets of various toys and it seems incredibly sturdy. Just definitely plan on anchoring this piece to the wall if you have small kids around!mirielle20 on Jun 10, 2014
