Looks Good

dee from California

My bedroom was just cleaned out and painted. Since there was now quite a lot of extra room in there, I decided to get rid of some of the 3-shelf bookcases in the living room and hallway by putting up 5-shelf bookcases in the bedroom.

I bought this bookcase with the thought that I'd buy a few more if it looked good and was fairly easy to put together.

There were 3 issues by the time I put it together.

The first was my fault - I'd put the back is on backwards so the "wood" look faces the wall. (Duh!) The second was a crack on one shelf. (The crack isn't all the way through, though so I'm hoping it'll be fine).

The third is that it didn't take much to chip one of the long pieces that makes up a side of the case. (I don't even know how it happened). The good news is that it's next to the wall instead of in front.

The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is due to the crack and the chipped piece. Plus, it's not the easiest bookcase to put together.

Actually, if possible, I'd give this 4.5 stars because these were small problems and the bookcase looks good when assembled.

I'm going to end up with 3 or 4 of these bookcases depending on how well they fit in my bedroom. They really do look nice plus I'll be glad to free up room in the hallway and living room.

Exactly what I wanted

Dianne from Tolar, TX– Verified Buyer

I ordered 3 bookshelves and they arrived promptly! It is exactly what I expected as far as quality and looks. Yes, there is some cheaper areas, like the back panel, but the wood is heavy and is the perfect oak finish. I don't know if there is veneer because if there is, you can't tell. They are heavy and fit perfectly side by side. There is nothing hard about putting it together.

Wish I'd Researched More

dee from California

This was the 3rd purchase of the same bookcase. (Two others were bought under a different email addy).

Until today, I didn't put anything in the bookcases because I might have had to move one or more of them around the room. Hmmm, maybe that was my first mistake.

This 3rd bookcase somehow ended up crooked - the top half is leaning to one side. I can't figure out why - it was put together like the other two. Nothing is loose - so why is it leaning?

The 2 star rating for this item didn't reflect the leaning just in case it turns out I did something wrong. No, it's because the bookcase doesn't hold enough weight for my needs.

I didn't see anything on the webpage that mentioned weight limitations for the shelves. I didn't expect to be able to load 100 lbs on a shelf but surely a minimum of 50 would have been nice.

The manual shows a 25 lb limitation for the 2 adjustable shelves, 35 lb for the non-adjustable one in the middle and 50 lb on the bottom. That page is at the end of the manual.

I have a physician's scale which is accurate so I weighed 3/4 of a shelf's worth of books. Wow - those alone were 52 lbs. OK, fine, I have 2 other bookcases in another room that those will go in. Next!

I have some floppy binders (not the hard ones) with paper inside. I thought those might go on one of the 25lb shelves - wrong. They were just under 35lbs so I put them on the middle shelf and they didn't even take up the entire shelf. (See picture)

I wish the shelf limitations were listed on the Wayfair website - that way, there wouldn't be any surprises after purchase and assembly.

The reason I bought 3 of these bookcases was so I could get rid of my (3-shelf) bookcases in the living room and hallway. I'd already moved the books from 4 of these bookcases onto my bedroom floor and tossed 2 of the old bookcases.

Now I'm concerned that, due to the weight limitation, I'm going to end up with a lot of books left over while there's still plenty of room on the shelves. I'm just glad I didn't purchase a 4th bookcase which I was considering.

The good: The bookcases look good when built, they have a manufacturer's warranty and are built in the USA.

The bad: They can be easily chipped and the weight limitations are too light for my needs. (Your mileage may vary).

I'm not sure about the leaning issue - attached is a photo showing 35 lbs worth of binders; now I'm wondering if the 2nd bookcase also leans.

In the end, I would recommend this bookcase but only as long as the shelf weights were also provided.

Read the instructions and its not hard to assemble.

Lorri from Wisconsin

I like the bookcase and we're very happy with it. We read that other people had a difficult time assembling it, but that wasn't the case for us at all. If you read the instructions and follow them in order everything goes together just fine. We're pleased with it and I think for the price and the right expectations it is a really nice bookcase. It looks like we paid a lot more for it than we did.

Beautiful Bookcase - Exceptional Price

George Stephens from Desoto, TX– Verified Buyer

We received the bookcase from Wayfair within 4 days of ordering and it was delivered by FedEx in excellent condition. The bookcase was assembled in less than 3 hours with excellent instructions.

The bookcase looks like a beautiful piece of furniture. The detail is awesome on the top and bottom and the shelves look like they have moulding.

If you are looking for a sturdy, well designed bookcase purchase one like this. The bookcase is made by Sauder and I have had several pieces of furnture from them over the years.

Wayfair has an extensive inventory of furntirue items to meet your needs. Their website is easy th navigate and their communication from the time you order until the item is received is at the top.

Fabulous shelf that looks twice its price!

Bernice from Estero, FL– Verified Buyer

This shelf is the same shelf I found at a "pricey" furniture store for $330 (plus delivery and set-up charge). .
It is easy to assemble (I did it by myself). The color is a bit darker than the photo but matched my furniture. THIS IS A GREAT BUY!

I would recommend this product.

kimberly from LITHIA, FL– Verified Buyer

Time consuming to put together but very easy to complete. I'm a 5'1 female & built 3 cases on my own. Rated 4 stars because some pieces do not fit together exactly right but its not extremely noticeable when the unit is complete.

Carolyn from Duncan, OK– Verified Buyer

I ordered the bookcase for my home office. Not easy to put together, definitely takes two. It is heavy duty and very attractive. I feel it is well worth the price. Would recommend it to anyone wanting a bookcase.

Eda from Huntington, TX– Verified Buyer

I love this bookcase. It is very strong, and looks really good with my other bookcases. I may buy another for my craft room. It was a puzzle to put together, but it was well worth the effort. I would recommend this to anyone.
