Critical Review + Assembly Details
Ashley from Littleton, CO– Verified Buyer
FINISHED PRODUCT: (1) Both colors have a **fake woodgrain** that is not visible in the photo. It's tasteful and I like it better than if it were solid formica-looking. (2) What I DO NOT like are the almost half inch holes that were required to assemble the angles (pre-drilled). They provide stickers that match the surface (woodgrain on the stickers and all) so its not too noticeable, and its expected from a self-assembly piece, but it's not thrilling. (3) Some of the pieces are a hair off - more than in the picture above, so it looks less like a solid piece of wood than the photo. Its subtle and isn't bothering me for the price of this. I'm overall happy with the way this looks in our small apartment.
Great Bookcase, but lots of pieces
Sandie from Laguna Beach, CA
I counted 34 individual pieces for this item once we unpacked it and thankful I have a husband who knows what he's doing when it comes to putting something together. This is not for the amateur though and if you don't own any tools, forget it! Ladies, get a guy who has patience and won't beat it to death when it doesn't go together right. The final result is great and it's a unique piece of furniture in a room instead of the boring simple lines of a traditional bookcase. We've combined decorative items as well as books very nicely and everyone who sees it comments on it.

The bookcase is one of a kind. It has so many different compartments that it is perfect for all types of items. The item was fairly easy to assemble. I followed the assembly instructions and once I got through the first step, the rest was a breeze. I also had my son helped me, which was a great family project. It could be set either horizontal or vertical. I chose to set my vertical to save floor space. Overall, it is a pretty nice item and has many usage. I am able to place books, vases, jars, flowers, and also small picture frames.
Good product, bad service
Jonathan from ,– Verified Buyer
A week to get it, not so bad. A week to get replacement boards because of a faulty one, ok. Another week because they didn't seem to read my request form and left out two boards and a hardware kit, still never got the kit, really just ridiculous.

Overall I am very pleased with this purchase. It is really sturdy and beautiful. Everyone that has visited me has commented on how nice it is. I have black furniture and was concerned how this would fit in but to be honest you can't really tell it's not black. My only complaint is that there are large circle wholes on top of shelf curfaces and the stickers provided to mask that are really flimsy. I would have preceded something more solid, like a plastic or wooden cap.

I purchased the white bookcase and it looks just like picture and the dimensions are exact. Assembling takes a while and the package is very heavy when delivered (2 people are definitely needed). Some pieces are pretty light and made of pressed wood while the pieces that will be supporting more weight are made of mdf. It's true that it can be arranged vertically or horizontally and it comes with little white stickers to camouflage the screw holes etc. The bookcase is beautiful and I can't wait to see how sturdy it is.
Very nice; Very sturdy
Alexandra from Fairfax, VA– Verified Buyer
I love this new bookcase. It's very sturdy -- very heavy. I spent about 2 hours putting it together -- I had help from my 3 year old, so that may have slowed things down. The pieces were all marked clearly, so it just took time. But, it was well worth it. We're really happy to have it.
Bradshaw Book cases
Agnes from Glendale, CA– Verified Buyer
I bought 3 of these in bookshelves, and will be purchasing 2 more. They are sturdy and unique.
KV from Miami, FL– Verified Buyer
Was just as described. I bought two to use side by side as a free standing room divider for decorative items and functional storage. Looks great and get lots of compliments. Assembly was slow as other reviewers mentioned, but worth it! As for the complaints about the screw hole covers, I didn't use them. Instead I bought a wood stain touch-up pen and stained the insides of the holes to match. Quick, cheap, and easy and now they blend right in. They're barely noticeable, and I think it looks normal, like it was designed to be that way.
