      Option: Reversible Grey/ Stripe Panel Bookcase

      I ordered 4 of these bookshelves for my library. Assembly was easy enough for me to handle by myself. The striped back panel looks great and is screwed on as opposed to tacked on, which is time consuming, but well worth the extra effort. Tip: if you're putting more than one of these bookshelves next to one another, reverse the placement of the long narrow face panel on the inside bookshelves to outward as opposed to all inward. BIG difference in the appearance of multiple bookshelves together. Transformed my room completely!

    • Perfect little bookshelves

      We purchased two of these bookshelves and they were so straight forward in the assembly directions. My son and I actually had a race to see who would finish first and he beat me by about 2 minutes. It took about 30 minutes to assemble. They are sturdy and well made and we use the white and striped side of the backing. Love them! To answer a question for ChefDanielle written on 6/22/17, the width at the bottom is exactly 30 & 3/16ths so just under 30 1/4" The top is 31.5 inches. I would definitely recommend these to a friend.

      I ordered this bookcase as it was the perfect size for the corner of my bedroom. Very pleased with the way it looks - exactly like the picture and the white is a true bright white without any grey or green tones.

    • Very attractive bookcase

      Option: Reversible Grey/ Stripe Panel Bookcase

      This bookcase was very simple to assemble, and it looks really nice. I chose the grey background rather than the striped, and it's a nice grey that contrasts well with the white. The shelves are sturdy, and the base is extremely sturdy, which I appreciate. Overall a great piece!

    • Beautiful bookshelves!

      Option: Reversible Grey/ Stripe Panel Bookcase

      LOVE these bookshelves! Shopped around for some time before choosing these. They are very sturdy and much richer looking than you would think for the price! They did take some time to put together (I bought two of them and assembled them myself). The directions/ pictures for the most part were clear although there is only one way the shelves themselves fit and it is not clear in the instructions). NOTE: if you do go solo to assemble them, do NOT attempt to turn the shelves over by yourself in order to attach the back panels. It WILL come undone! It took me almost a full day to assemble two of them but the end result was worth the task! And the grey backing is a beautiful color! I don't hesitate to recommend these units!

      These shelving units are really well constructed. When fully constructed, they looked perfect for my living room redo. Looks exactly like the picture (I purchased the shelves with white backing, not the striped). If building by yourself - which is not recommended - I’d recommend putting together the center shelves, attaching to the base, standing vertical and then finishing construction, otherwise it will be too heavy to lift yourself.

      Love this bookshelf. Sure, you have to put it together and that takes a little time for figuring, but they have made it so if you put the top on the bottom and the bottom on the top, you can just take them off and reverse them! How do I know? Brilliant of them, less brilliant of me. I got 2 and love them.

    • This is so beautiful!

      Option: Reversible Grey/ Stripe Panel Bookcase

      I loved how easy it was to assemble, (except a little of mis-alignment of back panels which are hidden at the back), It looks beautiful, you can prganiza bins in there and the beige and white stripes adds the charm..I highly recommend buying this product. It has wonderful finish, doesn't look cheap at all. I got two of them. I am so glad with this purchase.

      The best assemble yourself product I have put together!! I am a 70 year old women, did decorating for many years, and have assembled more units then I can remember! The finish was perfect and the machining was spot on, and they actually included spares of all hardware! I received it today and couldn't wait to put it together. I was able to do so by myself and put it in place. A little chuckle for the review where they put the shelves in backwards, and thought the product was junk because there were gaps. Assembly required is not for everyone, but if you watch what you're doing, this is a great unit!!

      One of the main reasons I purchased these bookcases were the reversible/colored back grounds. Great idea! Really gives it some personality! They look expensive when put together and are well made with out the huge price tag. A little time consuming to assemble but I was able to do it by myself. One of my favorite pieces. And o erstock was amazing. Arrived on time. They were a gift from my husband purchased right in the middle of buying and remodeling a new home so I didn’t get to put them together right away. When I open the box one of the shelves was damaged and overstock sent me a new shelf even after acceptable time for him. Thanks overstock!

      It looks OK after assembly but the smell is just too strong and bad! This only means one thing: the manufacturer used very-low quality paint for this bookcase. Overstock.com should have done a much better job making sure everything they sell meet minimum standards.

    • Great for the price

      This is a very well made bookcase and looks great.Easy to assemble. We wanted to ensure it was sturdy and not easy to pull over. We have it in our 4 year old daughters playroom. We are glad we purchased from this company.

      I purchased two of these for our play room, along with some wicker storage baskets. They look really nice and are more stylish than typical play room toy storage. They were pretty easy to put together, and came with a bracket and zip ties to anchor it to the wall, so that was a nice addition especially since I’m using them in a playroom. My only complaint is that for the first 2 weeks or more, they had a strong, terrible odor that gave me a headache. Maybe wiping them down immediately with a cleaning agent would be helpful. Aside from that, I would recommend this product.

      These bookshelves look great. Perfect pairing for our library/sitting room. Easy to put together, took my husband less than 30 minutes. The little plastic white screw covers were a bit of a pain but everything else was great

      • A:

        No, a 12.5" wide book will not fit on the shelf. It would be over the edge. The shelf measures 10.5" deep. It is a very nice bookcase.

    • Q:

      "Can you order just the White backing or does it have to be Grey or beige stripe? I would like just a white back. Thanks. Laura C"

      • A:

        Currently only the grey/stripe is available.

    • Q:

      "Does this have the flimsy cardboard back that so many bookcases have?"

      • A:

        It is a pressed cardboard but not flimsy at all. There is an individual section for each shelf. We are very pleased with the construction and the material used for these definitely not like the bookcases you are referring to.

      • A:

        It is cardboard, but sturdy. I have no complaints about this unit.

      • A:

        Yes to cardboard- no to flimsy. It holds together very well and is quite good looking. Nice buy!
