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!
