I was able to put this together in about 2 hours, and it only took that long because I stopped to do this and that. It isn't that hard, as long as one pays careful attention to the first 4 pieces. It's a 3D puzzle, is all. Be certain those first 4 pieces are assembled in the proper direction -- visualize it in your head, and the rest goes together without problem. ONE bit of advice, however, as the chart doesn't specify it. When it comes to step 4, be sure to assemble pieces 7 and 8 (there are 2 of each) BEFORE putting 7 on the main case, or you won't have room to get your electric drill in there (unless it's small). I had to take off both 7 pieces, put the 8s on, then put BACK on the 7s. Otherwise, it was a snap. Looks more complicated than it is. Just take your time. (And yes, I HIGHLY recommend an electronic drill, as otherwise, screwing in ALL those long screws would take forever and a day.)

We were a little nervous about putting this bookcase together but it really wasn't too bad. We followed the instructions - had to sit back and visualize but all went well and we had a bookcase in about an hour.

The bookcase is exactly as I expected. I love it as an alternative to a traditional bookcase. I had one piece that had a slight defect but it wasn't anything that is highly noticeable. It takes some time to put together and as others have mentioned in the reviews, you HAVE TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE ARROWS!!! Unfortunately the manufacture puts the arrows where they eventually get covered up when you start screwing the pieces together so I would recommend taking the stickers off and moving them where you will see them.
Listen to the assembly warnings!

I have assembled many pieces of furniture, and consider myseld pretty handy. I didn't pay attention to the other reviewers' warnings & ended up having to take it apart. Four pieces have stickers with arrows on them, and I made the mistake of removing them after I thought I had it together correctly. The problem is that two pieces are identical except that one is about 1 longer - this is why the arrows are important! This is not hard to put together, just make sure you pay close attention to the arrows and that the rotation of the piece does change without warning from one picture to another. I purchased this for my boys' room and it looks great. They love it - way more stlyish than a typical kids' room bookcase!

I absolutely love this bookcase! It goes perfectly under the wall-hung flat screen tv in the guest room, and is as easily used for clothing and shoes, as for display. It did take a bit of time to assemble, but I thought the graphics were sufficient, all parts were correct, and the finished product was totally worth the time.
Worth the agony of assembly

I consider myself pretty proficient with a screwdriver but this thing gave me a run for my money. Part of the problem was that the arrow stickers were not present and those are VERY important. Otherwise I am a huge fan! It looks great and adds a lot to my living room. It's completely sturdy and seems to be of pretty high quality (to my uninformed eye.)

Love it. Looks just as good as the picture!! Assembly was very easy. Nice added feature to any room.

Once this is put together it looks nice, plenty of room for collectibles. Unlike some of the other reviewer's I found it almost impossible to put together, it took me forever. I admit I'm not handy, but it really was like a puzzle and the directions were terrible, only pictures. The piece is facing one direction in 1 step and another direction in another. Because it's not straight shelves or simple cubes it was hard to tell what attaches to what. Although the pieces have arrows, you can't tell if the arrow means you should put it up or down. I suggest that you not tighten the pieces until you know you have the right configuration. I put a few pieces in wrong then had to undo it. I am going to put furniture feet on it to make it look nicer. It does collect dust, but it's easily cleaned. All in all I would definitely buy it again.

I purchased this shelf to dress up a white wall in my condo and it is so unique. I really like the way you can change the position to get a different look. Yet another great purchase from Wayfair! My husband assembled it with no difficulty and it looks terrific.
