    • Pretty but several issues
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Black - Stained

      This is a pretty bookcase but I had a few issues. The lattice was broken in two spots - I am going to try to glue it. The assembly was fairly simple but the top shelf is a problem. All of the other shelves had grooves, screws and it was very simple. The top shelf however had nothing - literally I had to just set it on top of the shelf with no reinforcement. The only thing I can do is get some long thin nails and nail it through the top. If these issues were not there, this would be a very cute shelf but I think those are serious problems.

      Option: Espresso - Espresso Finish

      This is a pretty low-quality bookcase--probably worth about $50-75. It arrived with several cracks on the decorative sides. They are not particularly noticeable, so I chose not to return it. The holes to screw in the shelves don't really match up and I think not all of the holes are deep enough, as not all of the screws can be screwed in to the point where you can cover them with the wooden plugs. Even if all the screws DID go in, most of the wooden plugs are too big for the holes so I have to shave off their sides with a knife. It's not very hard to put together, other than fighting with the screws that won't go in. Otherwise, it's holding my books and not sagging, so it seems sturdy enough to do its job. It looks nice, except for the uncovered screws.

      Option: Espresso - Espresso Finish

      Added this to our bathroom, which adds a nice touch to the space and is not too overwhelming that it takes up too much space, but gives us added areas for storage. Easy to assemble too!

      Well constructed, easy to put together. I bought this to match one similar in design to use in my den. The open sides and back don't close the room in the X's on the side are a nice touch. Good price, fast delivery.

      Verified Purchase
      Option: Walnut - Walnut Finish

      I needed a bookcase that was well built and solid, as well as fit my PB&J sandwich budget. This was the perfect answer, I didn't have to settle for poor quality; the assembly was a breeze. I would have given it a 5 star, but one of the shelves was cracked. It seemed more of a hassle to send it back, especially since it's a solid heavy item.

    • Great Value and Quality Bookcase
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Walnut - Walnut Finish

      I was pleased to see this product is actually made of real wood! This is something we don't often see these days. The instructions were easy to follow and now that the bookcase is in place and full of books, it is very solid. It does help if you have an additional set of hands while screwing the shelves to the side supports. I highly recommend this bookcase.

      Option: Espresso - Espresso Finish

      When I saw all the issues people listed in their reviews of this bookshelf I was hesitant to buy it, but this was the only bookshelf that came in the color/style I wanted and had the capacity I needed. I decided to give it a shot, figuring I could return it if it was unsatisfactory. I ordered the espresso one and am very happy with it. Others that reviewed that product mentioned receiving damaged parts. I received mine well-packaged and undamaged, with all the parts. The wood is very soft and easily scratched though, and I accidentally nicked one of the sides while putting it together. I am not at all a handy or DIY person, but I managed to put it together in about an hour. It is very sturdy. Though it comes with parts to attach it to a wall, it doesn't need to be. Mine sits on carpet and is level. I use it to hold all of my books (each shelf is full) and a few knicknacks.

    • Better than expected
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Espresso - Espresso Finish

      I purchased this for extra storage in a bathroom. I wasn't looking for a high quality piece of furniture--I just needed something to store towel on. I liked the design of the bookcase and thought if the finish looked really cheap when it arrived that I would paint/distress it. I was really impressed when we opened up the box! Real wood, nice finish (I ordered the espresso which turned out to be more a very dark mahogany or cherry to me, which was fine). My husband put it together in about 20 minutes. No glitches. We were both impressed with the quality--although I originally bought it for a bathroom, I wouldn't hesitate to put it in any area of the house. Thank you Overstock!

    • Great Book Shelf
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Walnut - Walnut Finish

      This open style book case was better than expected. It is real wood & easy to assemble! All holes are pre-tapped for easy assembly and the hardware is very heavy duty!! It cam with wall mounting hardware which secures this directly to the wall, preventing a small child from pulling it over if using it to pull themselves up with. I am very happy as the finish I expected to receive was perfect and matched my other wood furniture perfectly!! This went together quickly & was very sturdy when finished. Great product once again O.co!! Thank you!!

      Verified Purchase
      Option: Black - Stained

      This is basically a hex-screw and stick bookcase. It is lightweight but seems sturdy enough for most books, video games, dvds and various gewgaws. I wouldnt put an encyclopedia set on it or anything as heavy as that. The bookcase looks good, was easy enough to assemble and is a step up from milk crates. I got the black one and am happy with the color.

      Option: Black - Stained

      For the price, you can't get a prettier and more functional shelf. As it looks in the pic, it's really meant for a combination of books and decoration, which is how I use it. Everyone who sees it, loves it. For a bookshelf only meant to hold books,there may be better options, but as a combination piece it's fabulous. The price is great!

      Option: Black - Stained

      I purchased two of these bookcases over a year ago to hold my office books and papers. I work in taxes, and have many heavy reference books and folders full of heavy paper. I have FILLED these shelves, and they are not warped or bending in the slightest! I am very impressed, because the shelf unit itself is not heavy at all. It looks fantastic, with the styling of the shelves, and was very easy to assemble. I have recently disassembled and moved them flat, and was able to reassable them easily after the move. I HIGHLY recommend these shelves!

      As bookcases go, this is a beautiful and sturdy piece. It's attractive and elegant, especially with the support bars in the back. I only bought one, but if you get multiple bookcases, these would look great side by side as in the picture for the product.

      I bought one, which was easy to assemble, extremely stable and beautiful. Based on this, I bought another. This one was broken in two places on one side, with one crack broken completely through and badly glued together. Since I had broken down the packaging, I decided to put it together to see if it was ok. (Also a couple of the holes were not aligned quite right.) Luckily the bookcase was sturdy after assembly and the extra holes I had to drill and the cracks were able to be hidden by the wall of the corner I placed it in. Looks great from the front. I have a lot of cookbooks on it so it's still very sturdy, which is my main concern. So five stars for the first bookcase and three stars for the second one to average four stars in total.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "Please let me know which color is closest to dark brown......espresso or walnut?"

      • A:

        Not sure how helpful my answer will be as I purchased these shelves in black. As a general rule, Espresso is a very dark brown. Walnut would be more of a medium/dark brown. I do have to say that I love these shelves. People say they had problems with cracks and assembly. I did not. If you can put together a piece of Ikea furniture, you'll be able to do this. I ordered two and have them side by side, filled with books & what not. They're a lovely addition to our family room.

      • A:

        I have this shelf in espresso and it is a really dark brown. I love it.

      • A:

        Espresso is the closest one to dark brown

    • Q:

      "The verbal description of these shelves say FIVE shelves, but the picture shows TEN shelves. Which is it please?"

      • A:

        Yes, there are five shelves only. They are nicely made and look good

      • A:

        There are only 5 shelves. There are structural supports across the back that give the false impression of a shelf in the picture.

      • A:

        There are only 5 shelves. What you are seeing in the photo are the horizontal braces that give the book shelves stability.

    • Q:

      "In regard to Linda's question about measurement height between shelves, I am confused by Overstock's answer. If there are 5 shelves and you say that 4 of them are 14" high, that only leaves a remaining 7" for the 5th shelf (total height in description is 63"). Can you please explain how you are calculating the dimensions between shelves and how the 5th (top) shelf could possibly be 13.7"? Thank you!"

      • A:

        There are 4 shelves. They're including the top surface as a 'shelf'

    • Q:

      "What is the measurement height between shelves"

      • A:

        The top shelf is 13.7 and the others are 14.02 tall.

    • Q:

      "How much weight can this bookcase withstand?"

      • A:

        Hello Gabbieprincess1, each shelf can hold approximately 35 pounds. Thank you for shopping with us.

    • Q:

      "Has anybody used the shelves for Hardbound books? I would like to know if the shelves sag when something heavy is on it. The shelves look thin."

      • A:

        Hello Aubrey, we can appreciate the fact you want a firsthand account of the product. You will receive an email notification every time you get a response. Thank you for shopping with us.

      • A:

        Hello, I over-stuffed mine with hardbacks for 2 months before removing them for a paint job. I had very large hardbacks stacked from the bottom to top of each shelf and stacked on the top shelf. Attached to the wall, these seem sturdy and I felt that they would have held all of those books for quite awhile. The shelves are thin but held up. I can understand why some of these arrive damaged My plan is to buy more for another guest room and not overstuff them again. For the money I think they are great. You can't buy partial board for much less. This is not fine furniture.

        Classy

      • A:

        Price and size. Would have preferred walnut but took what I could get. If you find a walnut one still, please send that instead of the black. Have always had good luck with my purchases from you...another reason. Thanks.
