I love this bookcase! It holds a lot of stuff (it's basically 5 ft by 5 ft) and the finish is really cool. It took me a bit of time to get it together; I always do something wrong and this time I put the drawers on upside down. Yikes! Once I corrected that error and figured out that the screws are supposed to go in mostly by hand, the construction was extremely easy. The piece is quite heavy and feels so much more solid and well built than other "ready to assemble" pieces. The bookcase is really lovely in my sewing room.
