So glad I bought this bookcase when it became available again. Super fast shipping. I got it within 2 days. Assemble was a breeze since there were sticker that number all the pieces. I put all the pieces together by myself and have my bf power drill the shelf on toward the end. A great piece of furniture for my study room
This item is now finished, and stands next to my flat screen TV. While in the Army, during the Korean war, I was later stationed in England. Met and married a beautiful English girl. Had a son (now 52). Wife has passed on. This "phone booth", gives me nothing but good (however, a bit sad) memories. Thanks for the memories.
I got two of the gray colored shelves. They are well made ~ nice and solid ~ and make quite a statement with their large size. Open the box outside or in the garage when you put them together, unless you want your house to look like it snowed. The packaging material gets everywhere!! I think it took longer to unpack and clean up the mess than it did to actually put them together. Totally worth it, though... they are great. :)
Was pleasantly surprised when I saw this product. It was one of the easiest assemblies I have ever done and I was able to do it without any assistance. And the quality is good, it looks much more expensive than it was. I am ordering a second cabinet to use for other storage - I will remove a shelf ( shelves) and possibly store handbags and/ or boots.
Easily put together by one person with only rudimentary plan reading skills and "erector set" building experience. Made of manufactured wood products and it looks it but the quality of the cut makes it presentable. It's heft requires two people to mount on the wall; be sure to find a wall stud into which to anchor it.
Great shelving! Easy to put together however EXTREME caution is needed when handling the shelves. There are notches cut into each corner of each shelf that fit into the metal "legs". I broke each piece off simply by picking up the shelves and trying to put into place. As always, Overstock customer service was wonderful and sent replacements within the week.
I would give it 3 and a half stars. It came well packaged and didn't have any scratches. Assembled together with husband, took us maybe 50 minutes. It looks nice but it's a bit flimsy and wobbly. I had to put pieces of cardboard under the front two legs so it wouldn't tip forward! Also it's more stable after we filled it with shoes. What can I say, it's not wood and particle board doesn't weigh much. For the price though, it's a great little cabinet. Looks great in my entry, and the shoe clutter is gone.
I've only had this set of shelves up for about 4 days and I love seeing it every time I pass thru the living room. 2 person job to put together and get moved, but even without directions it took maybe 20 minutes to put together (with a motorized drill, not the Allen wrench that comes with it). Color (I got the brown) is great, kind of distressed looking, metal part is a dark brown/oiled bronze. Very stable, sturdy, heavy piece. The one at **** looks almost identical for double the price of this one! Very happy with this purchase!
The delivery is great; the UPS brought it up to my apartment. The assembling direction work alright, and it took me almost 4 hours to put it together. I would say that the product works as it said, and looks good with the price, but it
isn't easy to assemble the whole thing by one person like me who weight 110 pounds with long finger nails, and isn't very fond of heavy duty chore.
This 3 shelf unit is as good looking at pictured and described. I was intimidated at first with the assembly but I took a minute to look at the instructions and really common sense just by looking at it you can easily figure it out. I did not need help and it took me about an hour (with some interruptions). NOTE: when the shelf unit was empty just assembled and placed in a carpeted room I had doubts about its sturdiness specially that I wanted to place a heavy TV on it. But once filled with books, the weight made it all very sturdy and the TV was placed on top with no concerns. It is very functional, pretty, and great price. I may get a second one to place along the wall.
We were looking for specific dimensions as shoe cabinet had to fit in to our foyer closet - it had to be just the right hight and length so this cabinet fit the bill. It took about 2 weeks to rcv the item(shipping to Montreal) and once we got it it was super fast and easy to assamble. Shelves are easy to add/remove to accommodate shoe hight (which came in handy as most of my shoes are high tops)The item is exactly as shown on line and seems to be of good quality, nice and sturdy, I definitely recommend it !
Easy to assemble and looks like the image. The shelves are not solid wood however. They are a composite of cheap soft woods that you can dent with a fingernail, stained to look real. I've had this item for two months and the shelves are sturdy enough to hold a full shelf of books without bowing.
I bought the white version. Once I got the shelf assembled, it's perfect in the corner of my craft room. Pay close attention to the long pieces and which way they should face. Those pieces aren't labeled. I assembled the whole thing backwards at first so assembly took me about 2 hrs instead of 1. Otherwise, I would recommend buying this bookshelf!
I am very pleased with the purchase of this media cabinet. I was considering getting a lowboy type cabinet, but this has worked out better. There is much more storage and options to open or close the bottom part of the unit. The color is beautiful, a dark walnut brown. Once all put together, it is a very heavy and sturdy unit. It took me about 45 minutes to put together by myself. Furniture sliders come in handy if you have them.
I did run into a problem however. Once shipped to me, the very first step in putting it together, the main shelf was pre-drilled incorrectly on one side and not at all on the other, talk about frustrating! The instructions tell you to contact the manufacturer directly (Dimensions Furniture) and not who you purchased it from. So in this instance, I did not contact Overstock. However, Dimensions had the fastest and best customer service I've experienced. The correct shelf was at my doorstep within 48 hours. I could NOT believe that, I figure'd it would take weeks and headaches. I just contacted them on their website and they responded by email QUICK. No question but what was my address and BOOM, there it was. That was the only hiccup I had throughout the process. I was super impressed with the manufacturer.
The storage at the bottom is a great place to store vinyl records. Above is room for your stereo, record player, or whatever else you want to put in. The left side has an adjustable shelf with 3 preset positions. The back panel has 4 holes drilled out to run your cords through. Again, the color and finish is gorgeous. The hairpin legs give it that retro look.
If I could change a couple things with it, this is what I would do. I wish the depth was about 1.5" - 2" deeper. Width wise, you can fit flush your standard audio component (amplifier, receiver, cd player, dvd player, etc.). However once your speaker wires, hdmi cables, rca cables, etc are connected, it takes up another inch or two, so the front of my Outlaw Audio stereo receiver is jutting out about an inch (see picture). Not a deal breaker, but just saying if I was the designer........seems to be a common issue with furniture today, most are media cabinets are 15" deep when they need to be 17". But, most people don't buy old school stereo equipment that size anymore, so I do understand. Also, I would not mind 1 extra shelf on the left, but that's just my personal preference. I might make one myself in the future.
All in all, a wonderful edition to our home, and I am looking forward to many evenings relaxing and enjoying my new music setup.
*just to note, in the second picture there is a scratch under the stereo, it didn't ship that way. That was me not being careful putting my stereo in!
From a bird's eye view on overstock this piece is a bit expensive considering the amount of raw materials involved. However the wooden boards are very heavy and high quality, I'd never believe they were not 1 piece real wood. It was very easy to assemble using only 1 single kind of screw, and it was up and running within 1hr!
My husband had a cow as this little beauty took about 3 hours to put together, and it's made out of the cheapest material, but I was surprisingly happy with the look when finished: pretty color, clean lines, good design. It's far from an heirloom, but a good piece that will tide you over for a few years.
The picture does not do justice to this media cabinet. It looks like much more expensive furniture. The different shelf configurations provide ample storage for many CDs and DVDs. Its length and depth allowed us to put two side by side in our hallway without taking much space. The assembly on the first cabinet was challenging; the second cabinet took very little time. All in all, a very nice piece of furniture and a good bargain, too. We highly recommend it.
I bought this for my husband to use as a bar cart-yes I know it's a bookcase but it makes a nice masculine looking cart. He put all his beautiful crystal decanters on a tray on the top shelf. There was plenty of room for ice buckets, booze, and all the glasses. Let the PARTY begin!
First of all, let's state the obvious - this product is NOT made of solid wood and you have to put it together yourself. However, anyone who reads the description will know that going into the purchase. Some reviewers seem to be disappointed by these facts and give the cabinet a low score based on these points, which doesn't make much sense to me.
That being said, the product went above and beyond my expectations. Assembly is definitely a two-man job, but we made it go faster by having a cordless drill to help with assembly. Mine came with all its parts (including the wood pieces) in flawless condition.
The finished project looks great in my living room. I have the entire cabinet filled (main structure and both doors) and I've seen no issues with steadiness or sturdiness. I'm pondering purchasing a second, since I've already maxed out the capacity in this one.
The product was delivered the day as promised. UPS brought it to my door . However, I had to bring it in by myself. I was home alone and was able to bring it in the house. However, it does weigh over 80 pounds. If you have to bring up stairs in my opinion there is no way you can do this unless you have help. The box is very large, heavy, and long so definitely have some help.
I attempted to assemble myself but quickly gave up as I realized this was much more harder than I thought. Overall the product took a little over two hours to assemble. My husband assembled it when he returned from work. What could of speed up the assembly process and made life a lot easier would have been better instructions. Several steps according to the instructions should have been prior to what they said. For example STEP 11 should be done way earlier, like step 2 or 3. Placing those brackets after the product is practically done is extremely difficult and not very well thought out. Parts #3 must be used in Step 7 but in the instructions they don't even mention it. You have to take it apart to add those little things on and that was frustrating. Also included is a bottle of glue, which we never used. So what is the glue for? It does not say in the instructions. Finally part E did not have the sticker on it, so we had to figure out which one was E.
Even though the assembly process was a pain, and time consuming the overall product once assembled is quite modern, elegant, and dare I say even attractive. I would recommend because for the price I believe you are getting a nice piece of furniture. It looks more expensive than what you paid. But have patience and get handy Mandy to help you cause I can see you throwing a hammer and drinking an entire bottle of wine trying to put this thing together by yourself.
The bookcase is a nice size to fit under a window. It is a slightly more orangey color than I would have liked and the veneer on the chipboard is very thin so there were some dings and chips but none serious enough to worry about, especially as I got it for a 4-year old's room. However, once assembled it feels sturdy and you can get a lot in it.
Unlike other reviewers, I received all the hardware and all the shelving as illustrated, nothing was missing. I even had one long shelf and a few screws left over after full assembly. No scratches or dents. Instructions were easy to read, although attaching the doors was a bit of a challenge. Took me about 2 hours to put together. All my CD's, DVD's and BluRay's fit with plenty of room to spare to grow my collection. The black finish matched perfectly with that of my entertainment center. I am very satisfied with the unit and it fit perfectly for the spot I intended it to go.
These shelves are great looking, super well made, sturdy, and less money than you'd expect for this quality. I compare them to Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware. Quality is similar, price is much better. I got the grey and it is so on trend right now. I was trying to match up to an old cabinet that I have in the room that has antiqued, punched pewter tin panels in it and this is a great match. I am using these in a craft studio to stylishly hold fabrics and other supplies. These are tall, long and will hold a lot, and I don't have to worry about the shelves collapsing, like with other, cheaper shelving units. I looked everywhere for just the right shelves, and know that you get what you pay for, so I waited for a good sale coupon and went for it. Shipping was free, and the delivery company was perfect...on time, polite, and efficient. I highly recommend!
The cabinet is sturdy and looks really nice especially for the price. It is pretty dark, and doesn't have any red tones---so not sure why that is in the name. Nontheless, it look nice and was very easy to put togther (just very repetitive). Tip....use a electric scredriver becauase there are lots of screws in this bad boy). For the most part, the cabinet looks of better quality (more expensive) than it is, however there is one tell-tell flaw that gives it away up close and that is the faux finish "stickers" that you are to put over the NUMEROUS screw holes that are each about the size of a dime. These stickers are easy to spot in the light and on the outer sides of the cabinet. They wil not go unoticed to anyone who lingers long enough to look at what your have displayed. In this respect Ikea has got this piece beat. Overall though I would say its a good deal for the money and is a substantial addition for a less substantial price.
Beautiful piece of furniture - easy to assemble (about 45 minutes) and went together well. Color is quite lovely - a deep mocha that is "close" to black, but definitely a deep brown. Unit seems sturdy and when assembled as followed, should support just about anything - within reason, of course.
My wife & I purchased (2) of these units for our kitchen, and we love them - truly looks beautiful, and we are very happy.
Unit arrives in (2) large boxes and has instructions for assembly - basic tools needed, but very easy to assemble.
I needed a cabinet for my shoes and this one works great! Very affordable but it doesn't look cheap at all and I was able to put it together all by myself. Holds about 12 pairs of shoes, mostly flats and low heels because you'd have to take out a shelf for higher heels. I'm using it as a nightstand and my husband liked it so much we got one for his side of the bed too. Great buy!
We bought this in ivory for our guest room as a nightstand with storage. It did come in multiple pieces but my husband was able to put it together fairly quick. I love the look of it! The ivory is a soft greyish white.. not yellowy like a cream but not a bright white either. Overall very happy with this purchase!
I love it and so do all who see it. When I came upon it there were no more in stock. I reached out to the Nova Solo company to enlist their help to purchase 2 of them. The lady was so responsive and efficient. She helped with product distribution so as to ensure I was able to purchase 2. The local shipping was less efficient as they lost the 2nd one and had to make 2 deliveries. I had the "white glove delivery" option so they set it up and connected the top and the bottom pieces and removed all the packing materials. I highly recommend the product as well as the rest of the Nova Solo product line. You should look at their webpage and read their story. It is fascinating.
This bookcase was everything I hoped it would be. The shelves are rustic wood but the other materials gives it a modern look, it looks amazing in our living room. It was very easy to assemble and is quite sturdy.
