So of course I could have measured, but the picture is a bit dececptive in how it places things. If I were a little person, then perhaps the proportions of my living room would be accurately represented in the photo... in terms of this piece in relation to the res to fmy living room, it's more than a little on the short side. Luckily I was moving around enough furniture and happen to have a fairly short partner, it's not the end of the world... but the towering display case as depicted in the included photo, it is not.
Although I am pleased with the bookcase it was not easy putting this together it was long and tedious. Underneath the shelves which is "plywood" it was not painted underneath around the sides and quite visible, I painted it which did not make me happy.
