Nice bookshelf for the money
Michelle from Concord, CA– Verified Buyer
This was exactly the size I was looking for to put in my daughters room. The shelf is sturdy and had the look I was going for. Not all of the pre-drilled holes matched up, but most of them did. This is to be expected with anything this is mass produced. It went together quickly and used a cordless drill to assemble most of it. Please note that there are a few red distress marks on the shelf. I was made aware of this on another review before purchasing. The slight distressing was what I imagined and was ok with. Just FYI.

I was out when my husband put it together, so I can't vouch for the process. It's a very nice looking piece. The shelves are deeper than you would expect for a bookcase, but that is a good feature. My only negative comment would be that the backing has a funky seam up the middle, but it's not noticeable once you fill the shelves.
Nice & simple

I really like this bookcase! We just ordered and got it put together for our nursery. The only thing is, the panels on the back are too small (must be the wrong dimensions) so there is a little gap in between them that lets light through. Not a big deal though if you have them up against the wall and have books and things on the shelves (which is likely).

This bookshelf was exactly what I was looking for in my daughters room. I felt this was a nice sturdy bookcase for the price. It didn't take long to put together either. A few of the pre-drilled holes didn't exactly line up, but was able to correct with using an electric drill.
Great little bookcase for small areas
Patricia from Hereford, AZ– Verified Buyer
I have seen similar bookcases elsewhere for much more. My husband and I had no problem with the assembly, and the finished product is sturdy and attractive. The "X" details on the sides of the bookcase are a nice design feature. Very happy with this purchase.

I like these shelves. I struggled putting them together, but I take full responsibility for my ineptitude. I have two, next to each other. They sit quietly in my house and hold some books and pictures and a wooden sea star.
Better than expected!
Jennifer from Ridgefield, WA– Verified Buyer
Sturdy, great black color with shabby look. My only complaint is the last step, attaching the back piece is kind of a pain. The screws were a little difficult to screw in, I'd recommend using a power screwdriver. I'd definitely recommend this shelf!
The perfect book shelf.
Anna from PINE CITY, MN– Verified Buyer
This is the perfect book shelf. I purchased two and placed them on adjacent walls with a chair in the corner to create a book nook for my daughters. I love the slight distressing. Easy assembly.
