The product was ordered and came within a couple of days. It even looks better after assembled. I would most definitely recommend this item for home or office. The brown color is a deep chocolate.
I wish i could give the product 6 stars. It is the right height and width for our purpose. We love that it has 3 different types of storage. The height is even perfect for all of the trophies my son has. It was easy to put together, like 90 minutes by myself. The one problem that i did have is the packing foam; it got everywhere and the static electricity made it impossible to clean. I had to vacuum each piece before I assembled the unit. I have a feeling that it is going to be like a Christmas tree (always finding pine needles even after you have cleaned them all up). BTW, the packaging held up and there was no damage to the unit. I guess that is my trade off for dealing with the foam.
First off, this is exactly what I was looking for. Nice white color, low height, perfect fit under our low windows. I see that it's associated with being for kid's rooms, but in our case, we are using for the master bedroom. I don't think it needs to be just for a kid's room. Would look great in any room where you have a need for a low bookcase. We bought two of them, and they look great, and are sturdy enough when filled with heavy books. My only issues with this have been with putting it together. The assembly instructions were wonderful, and so easy to follow just by the pictures. The first bookcase I was able to put together by myself without too much trouble. (The most challenging step is the last one, getting the whole thing to balance, while lifting it and fitting together the last side.) Anyway, the second bookcase had a few issues. At least two of the holes in the wood were not drilled deeply enough to fit the metal piece at the right spot that the screw needs to meet up with it. I had to gouge out the holes myself to get them to fit in deeper. This finally worked. However, it also required some improvising in the final step -- we had to use tape to get the metal piece to stay put in the hole on the bottom while we fit the side on. (It kept falling out.) I needed my husband to help. Not a one-person job. I would definitely still buy these again. Very attractive and functional. I just wouldn't expect them to be up and ready in 30 minutes! (But you might be luckier than I was!) Could be a one-person job or turn into needing two for the last step. (The rest is a breeze.) I would give it 5 stars for the final product. It lost a star because of the assembly challenges.
