Other than the veneer chipping in a few places from shipping, this is a good shelf.Read More
They must have bought those off the recycle people. They look heavily worn right out of the box. First of all, the packaging is horrible and not suited for anything that heavy. The delivery guy doesn't want a hernia, so he just kind of throws it off his truck and then drags it to your front door. Needless to say, the panels are wrecked up before assembly even starts. I told Overstock about it and they promptly sent out another box. (Now the delivery guy is really getting irritated. He throws it off the truck, backs up over it, and then drags it to your front door. Between the two sets, I couldn't come up with a good one but, hey, I got a pair of matching bookcases that look like 4th generation hand-me-downs. I just tell my friends that those are antiques and that they have sentimental value.Read More
Good basic bookcase to serve the purpose I needed it for. I bought this to put my kids toys on it in the corner of my room to reduce the clutter. The toys fit fine based on the measurments given and it has provided a great storage for the toys. The kids of course are not so gentle so littl nics are occuring but that is what I expected would happen and is why I didn't get a really nice bookcase for this purpose. COlor was pretty true to what I saw on the screen and I am happy with it. My husband did say the directions were horrible in putting it together. He read it a few times and followed-ed it and ended up needing to make shift some wood dowls as he had to break the one that they told him to put in the wrong place. Overall a good bookcaseRead More
It looks better on the picture. I would not recommend this to a friend.Read More
I hardly know where to begin. This box was already annihilated when it arrived. Ripped. Falling apart. Holes in the corners. When we opened the box, not surprisingly, the inside was a mess too. The styrofoam on the inside was hardly recognizable. It looked like a styrofoam bomb had gone off inside the box. Thousands of little teeny pieces of styrofoam erupted all over my carpet, which was a JOY to clean up since the teeny little pieces stuck to everything. AND THEN. Each and every piece of this bookcase was damaged. Some pieces just had scratches on them, others were flat-out broken. The worst part is, because of the deplorable condition of the box, we are unable to return it until we find a box large enough to accommodate the pieces. I have always been happy with Overstock in the past; but this was a disaster. AVOID.Read More
I have bought many pieces of furniture from Overstock, among other things, and have always had good results until I bought this bookshelf. It was very poor quality and basically fell apart when I stood it up. I just threw it away. Win some, loose some.Read More
It is VERY difficult to find a bookcase these days, so I was thrilled when I saw this advertised on Overstock. I ordered the Ergocraft Laguna 3-shelf Wood Veneer Bookcase and it arrived promptly. Then I opened the box....the materials used to make the bookcase were poor quality, the wood on the back of the bookcase was cracked, and the veneer was chipped on the shelves and the top. I would have sent it back but my husband said it would cost more to send it back than it was worth. I put it together and will use it, but I won't put it out where people will see it. What a shame - can't anyone build a reasonably priced, quality bookcase anymore?!!!Read More
This is one review that will never be published by Overstock.This was my first experience with Overstock and it will be my last. When I pulled the bookcase parts out of the carton, I was amazed at the condition of some of the pieces, so I made sure to take pictures of the heavy damage to the top edges of the bookcase and the scratches. There was no evidence of such heavy damage on the outside of the carton, but the upper left corner of the bookcase was so badly crushed I used Elmer's glue to keep the veneer from separating. Other areas were crushed, also, but not as badly. There were also scratches in the finish and the thin backing showed a very uneven stain pattern. Its a good thing a universal stain applicator was included in the shipment!!! I SERIOUSLY considered sending the bookcase back, but finely decided to do what I could to salvage it and then put it in a relatively dark area where the damage wouldn't show as much. Haven't reviewed the Ts & Cs as I NEVER expect to come back to Overstock again, or EVER expect to recommend this "company."Read More

FAQs about Bedroom Shelving
Personlaizing your bedroom is easy when you display decorative accessories, such as framed pictures, fancy clocks or a selection of antique books. Shelving is excellent bedroom furniture for displaying your personal decorative items. With so many different kinds of bedroom shelving, it can be a puzzle to figure out what's right for you: wall-mounted shelves, bed stands or tall multi-shelved units.

Best Bookshelf Materials
It's not unusual for bookshelves to incorporate multiple materials for different features. If you haven't decided on wood, wood products, metal or glass bookshelves, look at their relative strengths and weaknesses. Look below to learn the best bookshelf materials. Wood: "Solid wood" is a common term for furniture made from lumber planks. Beware of making assumptions based on labels like "hardwood" and "softwood." Hardwoods are derived from deciduous trees and softwoods from coniferous trees; the terms don't connote their relative strengths. Balsa is a hardwood even though it is very soft, just as Douglas fir is a softwood even though it is very hard. They all make excellent, classic stock material for bookcases. Generally, harder woods are the heavier and more resistant to scratches. Still, softer woods, if treated correctly, will keep just as well as harder woods. Plywood: Made by stacking thin sheets -- "plies" -- of lumber and gluing them under pressure, plywood features grains that alternate direction for strength. Several grades are available, of differing cost. Top and bottom plies can be high-quality woods to create the appearance of fine woods, but edge veneer or molding is needed to complete the illusion. Particleboard: Wood chips glued together carry a much lower price tag than solid wood, and particleboard is denser and more uniform. It's a great choice when cost is the primary consideration. Bookshelves crafted from veneered composite boards can look and feel as good as real wood. MDF: Wood fibers, tiny chips and sawdust collected and glued into sheets form medium-density fiberboard (MDF). Low-cost MDF makes an excellent base for veneers; plus, its strength is consistent and it shapes well. Metal: There's a reason most library bookshelves are made from metal: Metal bookcases are resistant to moisture and fungus, their low-friction shelves are easier on books' bindings and metal's strength-to-weight ratio can't be beat. Their cost usually comes in below any other material. Glass: Glass bookshelves weigh more than other types, but if you plan on assembling your bookshelves only once, the style points can be well worth it. Tempered glass shelves (in wood or metal uprights, called "standards") give your home an unbeatable contemporary feel, and glass bookcases' smooth, transparent surfaces add brilliant levity to a decorating piece that might otherwise be notably opaque and heavy.
