I puchase this bookcase to place in a nursery. I needed something to hold small books, pictures and such. It works very well for that purpose. The esspresso stain color of the bookcase matched very well with the dresser and cribs already in the room. I inpart picked this bookcase because it has nice visual interest from a side-view, which is good for where I have it positioned in the room. The bookcase looks nice, is sturdy but not too heavy, and anchors to the wall snuggly with 2 small screws. All good attributes for a nursery bookcase. All the pieces where included and well packaged. No scuffs or scrapes on the wood. If you can turn and allen wrench and read on at least a 3rd grade level then you should have no problems putting this together in under an hour. It will help to have decent size, preferrably carpeted, area to work on when putting the case together. The case goes together lying on it's back before you can raise it. In all I'm happy with the purchase. It works very well for what I needed.
