Good quality materials and fairly simple to assemble. It's probably not destined to be handed down throught the generations as a family heirloom, but it did add the perfect accent to a wall without protruding into the walking area. Bottom line, yes, it's worth the money.
I ordered the item in hopes of getting a solid wood bookshelf, but only to find that it is only MFD. Don't get me wrong, the item is beautiful and functional, but its not wood. Also, the item chips and scratches effortlessly.
I love everything I ordered from Overstock so far, and I ordered a lot, but this was so disappointing. Not a screw lined up with the pre-drilled hole. No pre-drilled hole for the bottom shelf and the screws for it were too short so it did not hold, I had to use other screws. Shelf doesn't line up so sides are not flush with the middle pieces, and I could not, and neither my son, turn the metal holders to hold the top shelf. It is too bad because the style was perfect for the top of the stairs where I wanted to use it. Just hated it....would not recommend to anyone....it doesnt even deserve 1 star.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? not walnut but a reddish brown
Please tell us about the quality of the product. very bad, scatches when putting it together even though I was so careful. Screws coming throught the "wood", and no its not wood.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? not.
Poor construction,. the first step involved MDF wood. The holes were not lined up for dowels.The dowels were too long and did not fit. Poor instructions. I have put together furniture many times before. I should not have continued, but due to my stubbornness I forced the issue and severely damaged the product by continuing. Its useless now. I not bothering to return, because I'll probably have to eat the shipping costs and get denied a return. ABSOLUTLEY DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT..
Great piece, but a PAIN to put together! The instructions were impossible. I'm actually really good at putting together prefab furniture, but this one was taxing even for me. Sorry to brag. It's not a great skill, but it's what I've got. Anyway, the first step was actually two steps. No biggie, it was easy to break it up. Step two, however, was twelve steps, including one that was left off the instructions completely. Then the last two steps were a step each. Seriously, if this form allowed me to upload photos, I'd include one. DO NOT ATTEMPT UNLESS YOU ARE AN ****NINJA!!!
Once I got it put together, though, I loved it. Sturdy and looks great!
Wanted bookshelf for kitchen that would hold my cookbooks as well as open shelving for computer printer. Perfect for our needs. Holds all my cookbooks easily a dozen, spacious bottom shelf for printer & leaves me top shelf for decorative items like pictures.
My wife and I love this bookshelf. It is definitely of great quality and structure. There are a lot of parts and the instructions tend to be overwhelming, but if you take your time and logically put it together step by step, it goes together easily. I did not rush myself and took 2 hours to put it together, just so I did not miss a step. I highly recommend this bookshelf. It is a more unique design and adds to the attractiveness of our room. Wood is sturdy and strong.
Thank you for your interest in the Three-shelf Walnut Brown Solid Wood Bookshelf. Unfortunately between the manufacturer and we here at Overstock.com do not know what the distance between the bottom of the v-shelf and the bottom shelf is. If we took an educated guess then I would say about 8 inches but that is a guess because we do not have the measurements that the builder used. We hope this helps. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 28, 2013
