      Very sturdy, paint a little messy on one area....I will try to touch this up. The one main thing I do NOT like about these is the fact that the shelves are only painted (antique white is what we ordered) on one side. Consequently, after the etagere is assembled one can see the underside of the shelves which is a dark cherry color. If I'm standing (I'm 5'4") I can clearly see the cherry color on the underside of the top shelf. If I am seated, I can see the underside on the top 2 shelves. I really DO NOT LIKE THIS. I think when things settle down around our house, we will be talking off the shelves and painting the undersides a similar color to the top side. VERY INCONVENIENT.

    • NOT 27 inches wide!

      Option: Wood Finish/Antique - Antique White

      Love the shelf. Took some time to put together and hoist up to where I wanted it. Then realized it was too wide for the space. Measured it- the shelves are just over 31 inches. The top is wider. I am trying to find another place in my house to use it. But upset that it was listed as 27 inches wide and I spent all that time putting it together for it to not fit in my space. Did contact and overstock offered a return pickup (still lost the hour it took me to put together). I asked them to update the description here- hopefully they do!

      So as others have mentioned, these shelves look almost identical to the ones at *** where they are much more expensive. I own the 3 section side shelving unit that I actually bought from *** a year or two ago. I can say that these shelving units that I bought from Overstock are almost the exact same as the ones sold at *** . From a quality standpoint, these are fantastic. Everything feels very study and the wood pieces are very solid. There are some finishing/quality issues but nothing significant. I ordered these in the gray color but had plans to paint them black. They turned out really great. Are these identical quality to the more expensive *** ones? No. Are the *** versions higher quality? Yes. But these shelving units are very high quality and for most people I don't think it would even matter. They are easy to assemble and it just takes time and it's not difficult. I actually assembled the top and bottom with the unit vertical then installed the shelves with the unit laying horizontally.

      Option: Wood Finish/Antique - Antique White

      Purchased this piece in antique white. Build quality is excellent with quality hardwood and a strong powder coated metal frame. It's all held together with 28 bolts with inset threads. Very strong, about 70-80 pounds. Four small plastic feet on the bottom to help prevent hardwood damage. There is a small bit of MDF used for framing the molding at the top and also some used to brace things together but it is mostly solid woods. One shelf was shipped with a stripped thread however it does not really affect the piece. Aesthetically pleasing. Antique white is not as bright as picture however it looks great and shows off the grain of the real wood. As others mention, the bottoms of the shelves are not painted but this does not matter unless you are really looking for it. There is no piece covering the top molding so if you do set something on top of it, expect it to drop about 4 inches until it hits the bottom board of the top molding. This top cavity is also not finished. It would be very easy to DIY a "cover" though. Very happy with the purchase, would purchase again. Minus one star for the shortcuts taken and broken shelf thread.

      I love this etagere/bookcase. Looks almost exactly the same as a piece from one of the higher end home decor stores, which costs 3x the price. It was easy to put together, and is a light and bright addition to any room.

      While review ratings are high, individual pieces may have defects as mine did. I received a used or at least slightly damaged piece as photos show - dented metal, indelible marks, white pits in the veneer shelves and some fracturing of the veneer on one side. Piece appeared to be well packed so it is less about this substantial bookcase itself which seemed of good design and structurally sound and more about the quality control in assembly for packaging. If it is a damaged or a return then sell it as used! Screw package was open with some of the 28 screws loose in the box. None of this can really be discovered till you take it out of the box and by then you make do. Assembly directions are clear and comes with an allen wrench. Furniture polish can help with the pits, area where the stain is uneven and whiter and just add more luster to the thin veneer. Depth and height of shelves allows for storage and or display. It is situated in the kitchen breakfast nook. It suits my purpose. The unexpected and actually distressed piece I received dampened my exerience of this purchase.

      I purchased two of the bookshelves for a den. I thought I would need help putting them together, however my husband was out of town and I was able to put them together all by myself. They come with all of the hardware and allen wrenches and took about an hour. They are sturdy, very elegant, and the design is classic, so I know I will keep these for a very long time. I was very pleased with the wood finish; it blends nicely with my furnishings. The metal is not dark black, it is like a deep charcoal with a soft, not shiny, finish. I would defitely purchase again and/or recommend these.

    • Beautiful Bookcase!

      Option: Oak Finish - Brown

      As others have stated, a bit disappointed that the bottom of the shelves are not finished, almost like a slightly varnished natural wood. We have the brown finish and all the shelves came with what looked to be black indelible marks (lines) on them and nothing was able to take them off. I was able to make them a bit lighter and less visible and when items are on the shelves you really can't see them. It wasn't enough of an issue to return them and we are actually very happy with the shelving now. They are very sturdy and we did use the anti-tip strap to prevent any mishaps.

      This is a beautiful, rustic unit exactly as picture shows. The top and bottom really look like quality molding and add a beautiful finishing touch to the piece. It's sturdy not wobbly at all so didn't see need to use included wall anchors especially that I have no little ones around. I like that the shelves are wide enough to accommodate lots of my 'stuff'and assembly was a breeze. Only issue for not giving 5 stars is that underside of shelves are unfinished and have a red tone. Can't understand why such quality furniture would be like this but where I'm using it in master bedroom hallway, it is not really noticeable. Overall, looks much classier and more expensive than my neighbor's who bought similar bookcase at another site and paid close to the same $. Mine is nicer!!

      I got two of the gray colored shelves. They are well made ~ nice and solid ~ and make quite a statement with their large size. Open the box outside or in the garage when you put them together, unless you want your house to look like it snowed. The packaging material gets everywhere!! I think it took longer to unpack and clean up the mess than it did to actually put them together. Totally worth it, though... they are great. :)

      I was very pleased with the overall look, quality and sturdiness, however, the underside of each shelf is not painted to match the top and sides of the shelves. Once assembled, I could see the underside of the top two shelves. It was a reddish-brown color (color of the wood). Luckily I had some paint on hand that matched, but I don't feel I should have had to paint it. The manufacturer could have easily just slapped one coat of paint on the bottom instead of leaving it naked. That was very disappointing.

      I chose "brown" thinking I was getting wood look shelves. The shelves actually are wood look WITH white paint dripped on them. If I wanted white, I would have ordered the white. The top cornice shelf is dented, so I will call to see if they will send me a new top. Too big of a hassle to return so I am keeping them. Still much cheaper and as solid as the retail furniture stores. If you are looking for the "barn look" then these would be perfect.

      Bought this book shelf to go with the matching console table we already had. Top notch purchase!!! It looks great, is very sturdy and we had 99 problems that day but assembly wasn’t one of them! It is a tall and narrow unit. Perfect for the space I had. I love it!

      I love this bookshelf. It's a nice sturdy piece and the open sides and back allow the room to seem more open than it did when I had a completely solid bookshelf. I use it to hold my books as well as my game system and cable box since my TV is mounted above a fireplace.

      Love these bookcases! We got the frosted gray and they look like they are more expensive than they truly were. Some minor scuffs but nothing awful, all looks to be from shipping. The gray color doesn't pose an issue with the different color underside of the shelves, so was fortunate for that. We actually like the look better w/o the cross frame in back (creating an "X" on the wall didn't fit the vibe we were going for). Highly recommend!
