      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!

      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!

      Bookcase came damaged in multiple areas and we decided to put some white duct tape on it and keep moving. It is WHITE white, as in stark white. My daughter had white furniture but this is REALLY white. The bookcase looks nice overall, assuming you like the bright white, but the quality is not over the top.

      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.

      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.

      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!!

      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.

      Option: Reversible Grey/ Stripe Panel Bookcase | White Panel Bookcase

      These shelves will handle anything. I bought a large rock at Mount Zion national park and its fits perfectly in a cubby. I have several hundred hard cover books and these babies handle them. No sagging, no wiggling, they are solid. So far I have purchased four and I just bought two more. I shopped for months, and these are the best. Very strong materials, watch the assembly - it can be tricky but if you play the soundtrack to Les Miserable, sing along, and have a glass of wine, you will get them together just fine. Extremely pleased.

      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.

      I used this bookcase to make some built - ins in our walk in closet, while saving me the work of making bookcases from scratch. For the price, they're very good value and have held up quite well.

      The bookcase is exactly what I was looking for. It took forever to assemble, though! It is doable, even for someone like me who is not very handy, but it will take a few hours. The back panel is pretty annoying as it does not come with holes and the nails are extremely small.

      BEAUTIFUL! I am so pleased with this purchase. It is absolutely a beautiful piece. Smooth white finish. I used the gray back because I liked the contrast but the cream and white stripe was very pretty. I have never put a piece of furniture together that was this easy. Every piece fit perfectly and instructions were great. Love it.

      The shelf looks great and was not too difficult to assemble. However, there is a lingering paint odor that still has not dissipated after a month in my daughter's room. This product appears to be high in VOCs.

      I was very hesitant about purchasing furniture on-line (especially after reading some of the reviews), but the bookcase is perfect. No pieces were damaged even the though the box was beat up a bit during shipping. There was enough padding around the pieces that they were all fine. It took me and my daughter about 2 hours to put it together. It is very sturdy and looks great in her room. They even sent extra screws, etc just in case (even though we didn't need them).

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "Looking for a bookcase like this with no backing. Is it possible to not use the backing? Does it need the backing to be stable?"

      • A:

        Yes, you must use the back to keep it stable. Please see the link below to some other options. https://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Media-Bookshelves/White,Bookshelves,/color,shelf-type,/2031/subcat.html

      • A:

        In my opinion, the backing does not lend itself to stability. We dropped some wood glue in the holes before inserting the dowels, and ours is very sturdy. I would feel comfortable leaving the backing off, but I don't know why you'd want to... it's nice!

      "How much weight will the shelves bear?"

      • A:

        My daughter has various objects and knickknacks on the shelves, not weighing more than 5-6 pounds. The one shelf she does have books, about 10 or so and that may weight a bit more. The shelves are think and sturdy and we have not had any issues thus far with this item. I hope this helps!

        It shelves will hold approx. 20 lbs each.

    • Q:

      "How deep is each shelf? I see that the bookcase is 12.5" deep, but will a 12.5" wide book or binder fit on the shelf without sticking out?"

      • 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!
