The pluses: This is a sturdy, solid wood piece. This isn't some MDF nightmare you're going to want to replace in a year or two, but a great piece of furniture that you're going to hold on to awhile. It's beautiful to look at. It looks like an expensive piece of furniture. My only real gripes are pretty nit-picky: 1) several small chips in the paint. For the price, it seems like including a small bottle of touch up paint would take this review over the top. 2) The top of the bookcase is not flat. There is about 1/2" drop from the decorative edge to the flat top...I like to display things on top of my bookcases so this is going to be something I have to work around. 3) This one almost seems not worth mentioning, but the seem in the back piece annoys me. Again I find myself asking if it would have been that difficult to have a solid back piece instead of one that is taped together. Other things: This is a pure white shelf. Not country white or antique white or off white. The drawer is lower than I pictured it. It's exactly where it shows in the picture, but I guess the angle made me think it was higher? If you have kids, they can and will be getting in this drawer.
We were very happy with our purchase. The shelves took a week to go cross-country but they arrived with no damage to the box or to the shelves. The directions were easy to understand and the finished product is lovely. It sits straight and looks just like the photo!
Same review as on the shorter shelf set. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a modern look or is in a small space. You get all the shelving you need but without the heavy look of a solid "bookcase/shelving" set. Can tip over easily so be careful if you are in earthquake country or have kids that could pull it over.
I bought two of these and was delighted they were such good quality. Solid wood, nice finish. If you live in earthquake country or have them in a place where they can be bumped (or have small kids) be sure to use the wall braces. Highly recommend!
