The book case is great. I was a little overwhelmed when I opened the box to see so much had to be put together; but it was so simple that I had it up and loaded against my wall in about an hour. It looks really nice and is sturdy enough for my needs.... some books, baskets, pictures etc... It really helped my room pop! What you need to know: This is not a heavy book case so don't plan on weighing it down w/ a million books or tons of heavy things; but similar to the picture, it's more decorative and holds plenty of light items and doesn't overtake the room. The directions for putting it together are in pictures, which I find more helpful. I would recommend this item and it's a great deal for the price!

I love this bookcase. I did a ton of research both in stores and online before making the purchase. I waited six months before making the decision to get this. My husband, unlike some men, is very picky about furniture in our home. But we have a collection of original handcrafted pottery and needed a space efficient yet attractive way to display the items. I was concerned about the stability because I certainly did not want our pieces in danger of falling. This is perfect. It is stable, secure, and looks unique plus beautiful. Will purchase again in the future to put beside the current one as our collection grows.

Only concern, pay attention when assembling. After building 2 I was not paying attention to the position of the 1" wood backing that should be on the back side of the shelves and once I connected the shelf to the lateral stand there's not way to unhinge them to fix this error.
Perfect housewarming gift!

We bought two of these ladder bookcases for our son and daughter-in-law's first home. They absolutely love it and said it looks great and was easy to assemble. As a focal point in their family room, they have filled it with picture frames and treasured keepsakes.

This bookcase has worked out perfectly for us - it fits very nicely in a little nook in our living room, and looks great. The wood is very nice quality and holds books and other items beautifully. It took my husband about 30 minutes to put it together.

A novel approach to a book shelf--even though I don't use it for books. My only complaint is the joint pegs which didn't always fit well together. But basically it's great and I would recommend it as a clever substitute for the run of the mill book case.

Nice little shelves although if you look closely I think they look as inexpensive as they are. The black finish wasn't even and I needed a sharpie to fill in areas where the finish looked red. They were somewhat easy to put together and two of them do well to fill up space on otherwise empty large my large in my living room.

The finished product is nice and as I expected it to be as far as weight and look. Assembly is another story - it was much more time consuming that I thought it would be and was missing a couple parts. Less two dowels and 4 of the "plugs" to cover the screws will not stay in the hole. Overall it is functional and a good value.
Nice bookshelf, but pieces came off color
Lauren from Philadelphia, PA – Verified Buyer
The bookshelf is a nice quality, however leaves black scuff marks on the wall, the two pieces don't join seamlessly together, and there are streaks of red on some of the wood. Good thing red is the accent color in my living room!
Perfect for display and books!

I loved this so much, I went and bought another one! Holds tons of display items and books. Doesn't take up much floor space.
