Ikea-like materials, but looks nice in person from USA on 10/25/2015 – Verified Buyer
This bookcase caught my eye because of how nice it looked in the bright rooms in the product photos on various sites. It looks great in person, and it goes really well with my [[ASIN:B00WBSQZPI Avery Retro Glass Top Writing Desk by Lumisource]] because the shelves match the desk almost perfectly. Assembly wasn't terribly difficult, but it was time-consuming. I'd estimate about 3 hours total over two days. I assembled it alone. There were a lot of dowels that were to be inserted into holes and they required glue. A small vial of glue was included, but even using the bare minimum in each spot, there was not enough glue. Luckily I had extra wood glue so I could complete the job properly, and I'd definitely make sure you have some extra wood glue on hand, too. A sheet of white round stickers was included that are to be used to cover some screw heads on the supports under each shelf. However, my sheet of stickers was wrinkled to the point where they were unusable (unless I wanted the finished product to look truly ridiculous). I am going to contact the manufacturer for a replacement sheet and I'll update my review if I can get them. The assembled unit doesn't look TOO cheap in person, even though it is a bit Ikea-like because of the wood veneers. For the price I paid, I am quite happy with this bookcase. Pros: Inexpensive, nice looks, can assemble alone Cons: Not enough glue included, assembly is a bit time consuming

Beautiful - a little work to put together but worth it from Falls Church, VA on 09/17/2015 – Verified Buyer
We bought two of these bookcases to line the wall behind our desk along with a hutch. They look great! The white color with wood shelves looks perfect and keeps the room light, which is what we were going for. It would have been a pretty dark room with a heavy wood bookcase. The directions to put it together were clear, but be warned - it's a two person job because the pieces are long and heavy, and it's a lot of steps so it takes a while. That's all fine with me, because I think in the end we got a sturdy nice piece of furniture. The only real complaint we had with construction is that they included glue for the wood dowels that bring pieces together, but it was only about half the glue needed. We ended using some tacky glue for the rest because it seemed about the same consistency and it was what we had. If you really want to be sure maybe you could get some epoxy or something and be very careful not to glue your fingertips.

I have received so many compliments on this bookcase from Seattle, WA on 10/15/2015 – Verified Buyer
I love this bookcase. I purchased for my office. Every person that comes in comments on how nice it looks in the space. Everyone asks me where I got it from. Fortunately, I did not have to put it together myself (b/c it looked like quite the process-many pieces). I also really love the color of the shelves (more of a light coffee color). The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that it's not necessarily the most stable shelf. Not that I think it will fall apart if you set anything heavy on it, but it's the type of shelf where if you bump into it whilst walking by-it'll shake and things will fall over. So, I guess it depends what you want to put on it. For me, I am using for binders an books-so nothing that will break if I should bump the shelf and the items fall over.

Unique and modern from Purdy, MO on 12/09/2014 – Verified Buyer
This shelf is a really nice piece to show off. It is a very nice size and the shelves are high enough apart for the tallest book in your library! Minus 1 star because the shelves will curve if you put too much weight on it.

BEAUTIFUL from Bremerton, WA on 09/29/2013 – Verified Buyer
Amazing, this is a beautiful bookcase. I was happily surprised at the quality. I put it together without a problem, instructions were clear, all parts were included, and everything lined up. I would purchase from this company again!

Good buy from Medford, OR on 03/03/2015 – Verified Buyer
This is a good buy, I found the exact same one at overstock.com for more money. It was fairly easy to assemble, two people is a good idea. Needs more wood glue than is provided. Wish it were real wood and not fiberboard but for the price I can't complain. Also, it is very heavy. We anchored it to the wall to make sure it wouldn't tip over if grandkids were around.

Love! from College Park, MD on 08/25/2014 – Verified Buyer
This bookcase looks exactly like the picture in person. I really love it. The one thing I question is that the shelves are so tall to the point where all my books probably wont be able to stand up straight. The assembly is of course a bit much with ALL the pieces, but I cant speak too much on it because I sat and watched my boyfriend put it together. All I know is that it comes with glue, which he said wasn't enough. I still really really love this bookcase though, and so does he.

Monhegan bookcase from Thornhill, ON on 09/07/2014 – Verified Buyer
Great bookcase...goes well with my maple floors and is a great display case for the family room. sturdy construction and for the price you can't go wrong. Assembly wasn't too bad but because there were so many pieces to put together we ran out of glue quickly. Included is one little tube of glue which really isn't enough.

Nice modern look book case from Norman, OK on 07/26/2015 – Verified Buyer
I've been using these shelves to store record albums and stereo equipment. Seems to do the job nicely. I used wood glue instead of the included glue; one vial of glue had solidified. Pros: Nice finish, modern appearance. Cons: Takes a long time to assemble, about 2-3 hours if you do it in one setting, yet I'm buying 2 more.

Nice Open Shelves from St Simons Island, GA on 11/07/2015 – Verified Buyer
Arrived in great shape due to double boxing. Assembly is fiddly with lots of screwing in bolts and gluing pegs. As all other reviews have stated, not enough wood glue, we were prepared with extra. Sturdy but I wouldn't put in a kids room as it seems easy to tip. The inside silver bolts are concealed upon finish with a peel off white sticker--- I get the cost saving thought but this is unlikely to be a long term solution. Nice unit, would purchase again.
