This turns into a beautiful bookcase, took me about an hour and 1/2 to put together. I have put together this type of furniture before, so was familiar with how the cam-locks worked, but the instructions really don't tell you how to do them, so if you're new to this type of assembly, make sure you know how to do them first. The "dots" to cover the screws were a little noticeable, and they give you EXACTLY enough, so no room for error. All in all, once it is put together, it is a very sturdy, unique and pretty piece of furniture. I plan to use it horizontally on top of a pony wall (that has yet to be built!) as a room divider in my entryway. I LOVE the chunky look of the shelves, very contemporary.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is a true espresso (no hint of red despite the name) which was what I wanted.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is OK, wish things were made in US instead of China, but for this type of furniture, quality was good. The finish was even at least.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate
