This is a nice looking bookcase. Unfortunately when we put it together, all the metal parts that hold the shelf up broke. We called the company and they did ship us new parts, but the consultant had a very hard time figuring out what parts I wanted even after I told her the name of it from the parts list. We got the parts, but were unable to put the shelf on. The directions said to put it on last, but that does not work. It should have been put on before the sides were put on.
