The product itself is great: easy to assemble, sturdy, everything fit together nicely, and it looks like we spent a lot more than we did. An unexpected bonus: the pine shelves smell wonderful. The only thing is that when it arrived, the box was badly damaged and four out of five shelves were dented or deeply gouged in a couple cases. Before we made the decision to purchase it, we did see that this had happened to several other reviewers so we were sort of prepared for it, though still not happy about it. The packaging was terrible in general: it was packed in styrofoam that, since it was crushed, got crumbly and exploded everywhere when we opened the box.
Great bookcase. Pretty easy to set up. It only took me about 45mins doing it mostly by myself. I needed my husband's help to get the last shelf to line up with the lock bolts on the top. It's made out of real pine and the backing isn't the cheap flimsy cardboard. It's a very thin plywood material, but still way better.
Love the look of it but it is made of pine and the wood is warped and bows out a bit, there are some gaps in the construction but it really is beautiful and has a great rustic feel. Great price and you can't really tell the imperfections unless you look closely.
Bookcases arrived within a few days of being ordered. I love the white wash paint on the two bookcases. A friend helped me to put them together and he installed them to look like they were a built-in unit in my living room. We had no problems putting them together. The honey color tops almost reach my ceiling and match the pine dresser I have between them to make them look like they have always been a unit.
