  • Looks even better in person!
    Verified Purchase
    Option: Brown Finish

    I've only had this set of shelves up for about 4 days and I love seeing it every time I pass thru the living room. 2 person job to put together and get moved, but even without directions it took maybe 20 minutes to put together (with a motorized drill, not the Allen wrench that comes with it). Color (I got the brown) is great, kind of distressed looking, metal part is a dark brown/oiled bronze. Very stable, sturdy, heavy piece. The one at **** looks almost identical for double the price of this one! Very happy with this purchase!

    Option: Antique White Finish

    The Barnstone Bookcase, in Antique white, arrived very quickly in two large packages and was very well protected in both boxes. Instructions were very clear and it was easy to assemble. When put together, this unit is attractive and sturdy. The open concept displays your possessions very well. Despite the protective packaging, the wood on one of the bottom corners was split. We were able to use wood glue and a clamp to mend it and because this piece won’t be moving around, we felt it would be fine in its place. (You will definitely want to anchor this unit to the wall for added stability with the included anchors as it is very tall.) On one of the shelves, the veneer had slightly separated from the edge of the shelf. We inserted that shelf facing the back, near the wall, so it cannot be seen or further damaged. The underside of the shelves are not finished in veneer, so when sitting, you see the bare wood. A couple of shelves had marks on the underside and we were careful to use those for lower shelves so when seated, you don’t see the marks. The cornice top of the bookcase is not finished, so if you plan on placing objects on the top, you will need to place another (hidden) shelf first. So that you are clear on your color choice, Antique White veneer is not white. It has more of a slightly yellow appearance with the grain showing much darker. Overall, we are very happy with the quality and look of this piece. It blends with contemporary or transitional decor but depending on your display, it can fit in with just about any look.

    This is a good buy. A very solid piece that is proportioned well. I have many furniture pieces that are upscale and this blends right in. I chose the oak which is lightly limed. The base wood color is a mushroom brown. No red or gold tones. The shelves are all limed a bit differently which makes it more authentic. Some reviews reported red under the shelves: Mine were all finished so maybe the manufacturer fixed that problem? At least so far, the shelves are handling my books without sagging. It was all drilled well and was quick to assemble for one inexperienced person using just the provided tool. Took a little over an hour from opening the box to placing items on the shelf as I am not an athletic type. After securing the uprights to the base in the upright position I then set it back down and attached the top. This helps with lining up the posts. I then set it upright and installed the shelves and back bracing. Easier than the instructions seemed to imply. Each shelf is attached with 6 screws - Nice! Hint: to slide it into place on hard surfaces, spray a tad of window cleaner on the floor and it smooths the way. The top and base are quite heavy and well detailed. After snugging all screws it is solid. It arrived very well packaged but the box with the wood is really heavy. I like that the screws were shrink wrapped - not loose in a flimsy bag. Details that can make or break a project.

    This book shelf is exactly as stated. Quite sturdy. I am housing a great deal of book on mine already. Only downfall is that the bottom of the shelves are not finished. I purchased the gray and the bottoms of the shelves are a wood color. Not a deal breaker, can't decide to dock a star for it or not. Would buy it again either way. One of the shelves came damaged. Called customer service and they sent me a replacement self right away. They called or emailed me daily to let me know it was in the works. I was very impressed with the level of response. My new shelf came a few days later and it is in great condition. I am a small female and I put the unit together by myself in an hour. Quite easy. Love the gray.

    Great delivery in a busy season - bought two and second arrived a day later. I posted pix to show how beautifully this was packed in two foam lined boxes - metal in one and shelving in another. Both had plenty of sheets between and metal anchored with ties and thick blocks. This is absolutely necessary as it is a heavy item. I ordered 2 antique white and they both arrived undamaged and evenly stained, though it is a “rustic” piece. What surprised me is how easily it went together. I made it by myself with a power screwdriver - faster than the Allen key provided but did need help to set it upright. I painted the wall behind it as an accent and have not yet properly organized items on the shelves but love love love the way it looks.

  • So Happy
    Verified Purchase
    Option: Brown Finish

    I am so happy with my purchase! This is heavy wood and solid construction. All pieces were enclosed, so I didn't have to go looking for extra screws. The pieces fit perfectly together. I am a 50 year old female, but in really good shape, and was able to do this by myself. I did, however, put the shelves on with the unit standing. I had to make sure it was stable first, but I could never have lifted it off the ground after putting all those heavy wood shelves into it. I could barely drag it across the carpet after it was finished. I'm very, very happy with my purchase!

    I ordered the double wide shelving unit. It took a while to assemble, was packed very well, and arrived in perfect condition. The wood is slightly whitewashed for a casual look. The metal is a low sheen solid black finish. Very sturdy.

    Received the bookcase two days ago. It came sooner than expected, which was great. My husband and I put it together and it took about 1.5 hours, only because we made a mistake in lining up one of the rods. The instructions weren't the most helpful, but it was still relatively easy to put together. The pieces are very solid and heavy. Purchased in the brown color and I love it. Was inspired to purchase when I saw the same bookcase at a much more expensive furniture store (ahem RH), but then found it on Overstock for less than half the price. We've already starting putting things on it and it looks great. Highly recommend if you're looking for an etagere-like storage solution.

  • Great shelving unit
    Verified Purchase
    Option: Brown Finish

    This is an impressive shelving unit..it's tall and rustic looking. I love the look of it. It's solid wood with a veneer to it...think I would prefer just solid wood. I didn't give it a 5 because the item came damaged. The box must have been dropped along the way as several shelves had dings in them & the top one had the veneer torn where it was hit. Also there were other imperfections in the bottom shelving (small holes punched into the wood) which don't fit with the rest of the distressed look. I'll be calling customer service to see what we can do about the shelves. Some of it blends in because it's more rustic but I'm concerned that the veneer will pull away further in places and compromise the piece over time.

    Very nice unit. It was hard to find something over 36 inches wide. This gives you more width and provides for a very classy look. Looks great in my office with awards displayed.

    Be sure to anchor it to the wall. I had set an item on the top and when cleaning around the area, I accidentally bumped the unit shaking the item which promptly feel on my head. If you have children, this is a must. Also, like other reviewers the shelving unit comes in two very heavy boxes. Definitely need help getting inside the door. And finally, I ordered the white unit, but it was more a white beige color, not what I expected but I am keeping it. I love the design of this unit. Definitely worth the money.

    Just received this today and could not be happier. High quality, beautiful gray color. Easy to put together, less than 1 hour. Only suggestion would be to make one shelf finished on both sides, the under side of the upper shelf is visible and is not finished in the gray color. It shows, we will paint it and should be fine. Would highly recommend.

    We purchased the grey color of these and were so pleased with the easy put together and overall styling. They look just like the RH style sh es but for a much better price point. I was disappointed that the top of the shelf does not have a flat surface, we have a stairway that overlooks the shelves and the top being unfinished is not so pretty from above. Overall arraply solid and beautiful piece.

  • High Quality Bookcase
    Verified Purchase
    Option: Brown Finish

    Great looking, high quality wood shelf bookcase. Bookcase ships in two large boxes, one containing the wood shelves weighing about 105 pounds and the other containing the 3 metal vertical brackets weighing about 25 pounds. Assembly is not very complicated, but does take a while since 40 bolts are needed to attach the shelves to the brackets.

    This is a beautiful piece of furniture. It arrived in great condition, and my husband and I put it together in under 30 minutes. The brown finish contains a number of different shades, including some green tones. Very good quality and an excellent buy. I highly recommend this purchase. Here are some notes that might help with assembly: The crossbar is supposed to come attached together with one nut/bolt in the middle. We didn't realize this until we had thrown away the box; the nut and bolt must have separated during shipment. We simply used one of our own, and it doesn't show. Also, be very careful when sliding the shelves in. The edges of the shelves are very easily scratched so avoid dragging them against the metal. However, the scratches are easily repaired using a touch-up marker.

  • As good as expected...
    Verified Purchase
    Option: Brown Finish

    We waited over a month for these bookshelves to come back in stock. We had looked at many other sets in both stores and online, wanting shelves that were open, spacious, useful for hold large numbers of books, and attractive. Actually bought a set from a store for our bedroom that were twice as expensive and not as nice. We waited for a month to find an empty day to construct the shelves; however, retrospectively we could have done these at any time. With a power screwdriver, took about 60 minutes for each. No broken shelves but the cornice on one was cracked along a seam; lightly pounded it back and looks fine. Assembly was easy; found it best to put them together "front down" and then lift it. Very solid and attractive. Very good value. Thinking about getting a third. Only wish that there was a mid height version available.

    This unit is perfect for our needs. It nicely fills a long blank wall. The white antique finish mixes great with our industrial style pieces.
