Sturdy, cream colored slightly distressed finish, this is a very attractive piece of furniture!
Melinda from Montgomery, AL – Verified Buyer
Having never ordered anything from Wayfair, I read all of the reviews on this shelf. I ordered with confidence that it would fit into my space and be the shelf I was looking for to store things in a craft room. It is true, the color is slightly "off" in the photo on my computer screen. It is a lovely shade of cream with a bit of a distressed finish. The assembly was quite "do-able" with the help of my husband and the very well written instructions. I would recommend a power screw driver. We had the piece unpacked, assembled and in place in about an hour. The packing was superior! The instructions were well written and illustrated, the hardware was more than adequate with a few pieces to spare. I plan to order the matching piece with the doors on the bottom. For the price I could not be happier! This lovely shelf unit would have been 2-2.5 times the price in a store. Thanks Wayfair!
Sturdy, Well-Made, Great Quality
KF from Fairfax, VA
A high-quality piece of furniture! The delivery box is extremely heavy! I had to carry the items separately to where I was going to assemble the bookcase because the entire product is very heavy. I put this item together by myself. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. There are a couple steps that are difficult to do by yourself where I had to lay on the floor inside the frame to fasten some of the parts practically upside down :) but it's do-able. The finished product looks great, very high-quality and sturdy. It's worth the money and the time to assemble (approximately 3 hours with no break, by myself). Highly recommend! Assembly instructions easy to follow, good quality, durable, sturdy, professional finish Extremely heavy delivery box, some steps hard to do by yourself on assembly
Nice details, sturdy, one star off for finish and color
Kristin from Santa Cruz, CA – Verified Buyer
This is a nice piece for this price point, it's very sturdy and the shelves will hold lots of books. The finish definitely took some getting used to. As other reviewers have mentioned, the bookcase is definitely not white, but a cream color or more of a white washed faux wood finish. The cardboard bead board backing is very flimsy, but once you get books in and stand back from a distance you can't tell. It's a pretty little piece with some nice detail and I really enjoy it. I would just pay attention to the color and faux finish details as other reviewers have noted prior to ordering as this is definitely a cream colored/white washed faux wood bookcase or you may be unhappy with the look when you open your box.

I love the bookcase. It was easy to assemble and easy to move. I put coasters underneath the bookcase after I assembled it so I could move it to another room. The book case is made well! The shelves are adjustable and deep enough for me to put several books on each shelf. I thought the bookcase was more of a cream or white color when I saw it online but the color is a little darker than cream. I would have preferred a lighter cream color but the bookcase still looks great and fits well with the room decor.

I loved this piece. I modified it substantially to match the rest of my room décor. I painted it a different color and did not attach the valance at the top or the little skirt at the bottom. And I used different, less elaborate feet. Anyway, I ordered two of these. They were delivered promptly and undamaged. The directions were clear and the assembly was smooth. The finished product is very solid, substantial and classy. The shelves are very deep which was a big plus for me.
Decent bookshelf but a bit less value than expected.
Michael from Buford, GA – Verified Buyer
Overall, this looks fairly nice once assembled. It is definitely off-white. Actually, more of a white wash finish. I'm not sure that I would spend almost $200 if I had seen it in person before making the purchase. It's made entirely from press board which is pretty cheap to manufacture. It goes together with decent precision though. If I am 100% transparent, there is probably a good $30-40 in shipping costs built into the price (it's a heavy behemoth of a box) which would bring the actual cost in line with where I feel it should be priced, ~ $140. So, if you are expecting a relatively "nice" looking piece of furniture, spend more. If your expectations are a bit lower, it's a decent purchase.

Well constructed/designed for the DIY home decorators
Claudia from Dublin, CA – Verified Buyer
I just assembled it today, and I finished decorating my daughter's room. I got from the same collection the night table and dresser, plus a beautiful tufted upholstered bed, Wayfair is awesome! This book shelf looks fantastic, easy to put together ( in 2+ hours), the finish is flawless, the construction is solid, with a nice decorative molding detail, with adjustable shelves/hinges, one fixed shelf for stability, perfect to put books, collectibles and toys. Also it has pre-cut holes for wires, perfect for a small tv, lamp or stereo. Very happy with the results...
Really nice for the money!
Susan from Pikeville, NC – Verified Buyer
It took my husband less than an hour to put this shelf together. Every piece was in good condition and it ended up being a very sturdy piece of furniture. The only thing that I was disappointed about was the color. It is definitely NOT white, it's more a sandy tan color but still blends with the white furniture in the room. I've seen book shelves in furniture stores for at least $100 more than I paid for this one.
Luv my Bookcases!
Janice from Pompton Plains, NJ – Verified Buyer
I put together my 2nd bookcase last night, it took about 2 1/2 hours but was so easy to do! The instructions were easy to follow. I did it all by myself. I was even able to lift it off the floor to stand it up to the wall by myself. It looks so beautiful! The shelves are sturdy holds lots of books! I put the 2 bookcases, 1 has drawer & doors, together it looks like 1 large piece. It looks richer in color very with the antique white. I also ordered the corner matching tv stand which I will assemble tonight. VERY HAPPY!!!!!
