Solid good looking bookcase.
James from Wynnewood, PA
This is a pretty good bookcase for the price. The backing is fairly stiff, and doesn't feel like it will rip off like a lot of cheaper bookcases. The shelves and drawer feel pretty solid. The bottom of the drawer is the same stuff as the backing. I do wish the drawer had a more solid bottom to hold more weight. The X decorations aren't as sturdy, but I understand they're purely decorative. I misstepped while assembling and almost broke one.

It is a solid bookshelf just 2 things of note. 1. The 'distressed' effect appears to be 'red'. What you see in the advertised picture as worn, antiqued or old and a sort of whiter, grayish, dull black is actually red. Not sure how a black wood piece turns red when it is 'distressed' but I also noticed several other reviews mention the same thing. 2. I purchased 2 bookshelves which come in a total of 4 boxes. There were no assembly directions included in any of the boxes. I found them after searching for a while on line. It was a bit disappointing as I was assembling them in a new residence where internet had not yet been connected so I had to go sit in a mcdonalds to get wi fi and download the directions. I had a good cheeseburger though in the process. Overall it is a good bookshelf would have just appreciated a more clear visual on the 'red distressed' portions and if assembly directions are not included then mention that as well and include an easy to find link to get them.

This is a beautiful piece of shelving and very heavy duty. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because it was really hard to put together. I ended up taking out most of the dowels because I just couldn't get them to line up correctly. When it was done, the top two shelves were way off and crooked. I ended up having to take it apart and re-drill new holes to get it to go together straight. I'm pretty handy with wood-working tools but if you're not, I would suggest getting someone who is, to assemble it for you. Now that it's finished though, I really love it!
Not as deep of a unit as stated.
New housewife of Douglasville, GA from Douglasville, GA
I looked far and wide for a deep enough shelving unit to put my stereo receiver on but wide and tall enough to fit my space. This unit claims to be 16" overall depth but I was disappointed that it is only 15" overall depth. Of course I knew there was a back panel but only hoped it didn't consume much of the depth dimension, which it didn't. Since I choose not to use the back panel, it is working for my needs. I also want to point out this unit also has a 'slight' distressed look. At first I thought the paint was flawed, but after unpacking the whole unit, I realized it was mean to look that way. Overall, I really like the look and am happy with my purchase.
Pretty and solid

This bookcase is a great size! It's good quality and has a beautiful finish. The only complaints I have are the pull out drawer and the cardboard backing. The drawer is not very sturdy and doesn't look like it will be able to withstand much abuse in the future(not good if you have kids). The cardboard backing is good quality but it's in two pieces and connects in the middle with a plastic strip, which is very noticeable. Other than those things, it's very nice.
Very Nice Bookcase!

This bookcase was the perfect size for a specific area in our home. The color is a 'rough' black. I will say the instructions on this item were not very clear and it took about 2 hours to get it altogether. There were also a few damages to the item and I have contacted customer service to see how they are going to handle this. Overall though if it didn't have the couple damages it is a very nice solid piece of furniture.
Nice Bookcase, Stylish

The bookcase arrived before it was expected which was good. It was a bit difficult for 1 person to put together, 2 people would be fine. Everything went together great except the bottom drawer, as one of the panels was mis-aligned. Had to do a little carpentry on it ourselves to get it to fit. Glad we did, as the drawer slides in and out like a champ. We like the bookcase very much overall. It is nice and narrow to fit into our space. We would recommend to someone.

This is my favorite purchase from Wayfair (it was also my first). It fits perfectly in my bathroom and stores my towels, as well as nicely displays toiletries and candles, while I use the drawer at the bottom to store my travel stuff. I get lots of compliments on it. My only complaint is there are a few red lines like previous commenters have mentioned but they are not very noticeable, and 2 of the long pieces of wood in the front have some stress lines. The structure is still solid and I'm not sure if they happened in shipping or packing, but I paid a descent amount of money and would have chosen a piece without these stress lines had I bought it in a brick and mortar store. I doesn't change how much I love this piece, which is why I kept the 5 star rating, but am giving honest feedback for the next shopper.

Very nice looking bookshelf. I don't actually use it as a bookshelf, I have each shelf decorated with picture frames and different décor. I also left the backing off of it and it is so open and good looking. It is a little unsturdy, but it's not in an area that it's bumped a lot or anything so it is holding up just fine.
Just what we were looking for.
Tricia from Layton, UT– Verified Buyer
Arrived quickly, boxes undamaged. Appeared as though they were packed too soon after being painted. There were a few small blemishes on the side where it looked as though the packaging had stuck to not-quite-dry paint. We decided against time and expense of returning, tho, because from a design aspect, they are just what we'd been looking for. And believe me, we had been looking a long time.
