I love the design of the piece and the champagne gold color. However, be sure each piece you receive is indeed gold and not chrome. I opened up a couple of chrome #9 pieces in my set. Also note that installation requires a drill as the shelves are NOT pre-drilled. That takes up more installation time.... Overall, I'm happy with the look and design of my purchase, but not completely satisfied with the manufacturing.
Instructions were quite good and even package even contained a couple of extra screws, which is nice.The metal is painted a mat gold, which is to be expected, versus brass. Still, slightly eclectic, but elegant still. We're using it as a bar.
Yeah, the other reviewers weren't lying when they said there were no pre-drilled holes in the wood shelves. None. At. All. Some of those reviews are from a year ago. Surely, I thought, surely the manufacturer added some by now. Nope. They sure as *** didn't. Surely, I thought, surely the shelves will fit in the unit snugly, so I don't need to drill those holes, anyway. Nope. They sure as *** don't. Now, I don't own a power drill. I've lived 41 years - great years for the most part - without needing a drill. But, I think I'm going to have to get one. I can't, in good conscience, display my grandmother's crystal bowl on this shelf without the added security those predrilled holes would've provided. But, seeing as how I needed a cocktail after spending the last three years of my life - still a pretty great one - putting this contraption together, I guess I will have to wait until tomorrow to get one. The bookcase is quite lovely, at any rate. If you have a power drill, don't pass up this piece! If you don't, well...maybe don't display your grandmother's crystal bowl and you'll be gold.
