For the low cost, this bookcase is wonderful. The cherry finish laminate is beautiful and yes, it does leave a slight residue on your hands if you run them over it, but in no way does it rub off. The instructions make it clear that it can't take any chemical cleaning products or much water, so be mindful of that if you plan on buying this. It wasn't too hard to put together. The instructions are mostly pictures, not much written out. It takes some patience but everything you need to know is there. It has a thin backing with the matching cherry finish that you can easily nail into place (they give you a lot of nails to do so). And it even comes with parts to be secured into the wall, if you want to make sure it doesn't fall over. It comes with tiny square pads to stick to the bottom, to prevent scratching up the floor. The center shelf is permanent, the upper and lower shelves are adjustable. The plastic supports for the adjustable shelves seem weak when you're putting them in, but once you put a shelf on, it seems alright. I would definitely keep the heaviest books on the bottom, just in case. But for a basic book collection, it holds just fine. I'm happy with what I got.
Wasn't too difficult to assemble. It's sturdy and you get a lot of "bang for the buck." The wood is more on the cherry side than the rustic/refurbished look that I prefer, but because it has such a quality look to it, no love was lost. The office looks polished.
I'm very pleased with this purchase. It arrived well protected. The colour is more of a cherry red than brown. I put it together by myself in about an hour, easy directions. It's very sturdy. I just love it!
This cabinet looks really sharp for the price, I thought the doors slid open decently well. I am returning it because the color doesn't match my kitchen cabinets as well as I thought it would, it's a very deep and rich cherry color. The only reason I'm returning is due to the color, I would buy this again in a different color.
