I put this together by myself. I only needed help when putting the smaller half on top. The bad thing is a part labeling sticker is visible and I can't peel it off. Someone should've put it on the back side, not the side facing out. I use it to hold pictures and trinkets on the upper shelves and the cable box and DVD player on the bottom shelf. Seems sturdy enough without attaching to the wall.
This is exactly what I wanted. It was fairly easy to put together. I'm really pleased with the purchase. I do wish that the top and bottom pieces were connected with something better than just pegs. Maybe they made it this way so it's easy to move, not sure. If someone else were to move the piece not knowing that it's loosely connected the top would more than likely fall off.
Great discount! I love this bookshelf so much!! The only thing that bothered me was the wood wasn't as high of quality as I had expected. Wood was chipping in a few spots but very unnoticeable to the eye from far away. Also, because this bookshelf is so tall, you have to attach one piece to the other piece to make it the total 5 ft tall...it wasn't as stable as I thought it would be. When attaching the pieces together to get the full height, mine wobbles side to side when touched. But I am okay with that because it is only a bookshelf which I do not have too many large, heavy items so it still works for me. I would still recommend this product to everyone. Assembly was very easy, took about 45 minutes. Instructions say 2-person assembly but I did it on my own. 2-person assembly would probably be about half the time!
The only thing I would say is we were shorted one plug (thing that covers screws). My husband put it together and it only took about a half hour.

We just put this bookcase up this weekend and are very pleased. It's not super heavy but it looks great and was exactly as specified in the posting. My husband put it together and he didn't think it was difficult but he did think it was tedious so I guess it's perspective. Assembly wasn't a problem for us. Overall, it's a really nice purchase.
loved the bookcase it fits perfectly in the corner to display my items. the white is a pure white and was easy to put together

I just received the product today and it looks like it will make a beautiful shelf, just like the picture, but I CANNOT ASSEMBLE THE BOOKCASE. I need help and the instructions are NOT VERY CLEAR. I am presently trying to get a hold of SOMEONE to help me. I comes in seven LARGE pieces and about 100 little screws and dowels...and the instructions are HORRIBLE. Of course it is all laid out on my bedroom floor. Silly me, I thought I could assemble it tonight...now I have to put it all away UNASSEMBLED...and hope someone can help me soon. Very disappointed.
