As advertised from deland, FL on 03/05/2015 – Verified Buyer
I think this bookcase is as advertised. Its sturdy and honey in color. The only main complaint I have is the packaging was a huge problem. The first one I ordered came in a box that had a couple holes. When I opened it the bookcase corner was dented in,the front top was dented in and one of the bookshelves was dented in so bad you could see the particle board. I called to complain and was very satisfied with the service. I got a new bookcase sent within the next 10 days, BUT this one had damage too! The box was dented in and both shelves had big nicks on the edges. The bookcase comes assembled. The shelves are at the bottom of the box and the bookcase is from China. I hope they fix the way they ship or package the bookshelf in the future.

Would be nice, if it was assembled with quality from Carlsbad, CA on 08/12/2015 – Verified Buyer
We were excited to receive our bookshelf, but disappointed to see it was assembled poorly, with panels applied crookedly, exposing unfinished seams between panels and the shelves themselves. Overall, quality assembly was clearly a total after-thought. We would return, but the return policy is overly cumbersome and places the burden on the customer. Disappointed in Wayfair overall... Pros: solid wood, nice design Cons: poor assembly

Great bookcase for nursery from Boston, MA on 11/13/2011 – Verified Buyer
This bookcase works perfectly in our babys nursery. We got the espresso color and it matches the espresso crib and dresser we got perfectly. Its not cheap looking at all and its narrow to fit in a smaller room, but still have a nice quality piece. Limited assembly required - comes almost all put together!

Nice bookcase from St. Louis, MO on 08/01/2011 – Verified Buyer
I bought this book case to match my son's bed and dresser. It feels sturdy and looks really nice. I use it to hold books and toys. I'm very happy with the quality.
