This item came with one of the pads on the legs off - we glued it on. Some of the shelves were not flat - they buckle, but you can't really notice it when books or items fill the shelf. I like the color. It is a good size wnd fits into the space we wanted. Overall it looks pretty good, but definitely not made very well. I decided to keep it and hope it holds up well. It seems pretty sturdy with the books on it.
