I purchased this bookcase for our guest bedroom based on other customers' reviews, size, and the availability of the mellow yellow color. Our room was recently redecorated in blues/yellows and this color coordinated very well with paint colors and bedding. Shipping was incredibly speedy. Assembly instructions were very good. All pieces were present with some extras of assembly hardware included. All pre-drilled holes were properly placed. Our only problem was that a small strip of the paint had peeled off near a fold in the cardboard backing piece. This little strip of paint was lying on the cardboard backing piece, so maybe the piece was folded before the paint was completely dry. Fortunately the paint color of my room was close enough to the bookcase color that I was able to successfully touch up this spot. I also used this paint to conceal some tiny dark lines at veneer edges on outside corners. This seems to be a good bookcase for the price. Pros: Good assembly instructions, sturdy piece, nice finish, lovely color, good protective packaging, color appears to be identical to the way it appears on the website Cons: Slight damage (small strip of paint was removed from near a fold on the cardboard backing piece)
sturdy product - good value for the money

I ordered a pair of these - they arrived as scheduled (fast!) and all was well re packaging etc. This is a nicely designed piece, and the color selection is unusual (however, I wish they'd offered it in white). I ordered the green/gray color, but received the putty/gray, so points off for that bungle on their end. I ended up keeping the wrong color as the hassle of sending back etc seemed daunting. As always, assembly is a bear, but not impossible - a little elbow grease required but worth it to save $. All in all, I'd say it was very good qualitly for the money.
Four Stars because...
Carol from Riverview, MI – Verified Buyer
My husband had this nearly put together when he realized that the finish on one of the front side rails didn't come all the way to the edge. He called the manufacturer (Sauder) and they were very helpful and immediately sent out all the replacement parts we would need. It was a bit of a hassle but we are completely satisfied with the product. I would note that I ordered the Rainwater color expecting it to be a blue-gray, but it is actually quite green, which is fine because it is a pretty color.
COTTAGE 43.89" BOOKCASE
DIANE from CLINTON TOWNSHIP, MI – Verified Buyer
ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT !!! IT LOOKS DIVINE IN THE FRONT ENTRY OF MY HOME. THE COLOR WAS SPOT ON FROM THE PICTURE. I USE IT TO DISPLAY SPECIAL PEICES I HAVE, THAT WOULD NOT FIT IN MY CURIO CABINET. I SAY IT CAN BE USED OTHER THAN A BOOKCASE. DON'T HESITATE, IF YOU ARE LOOKING @ IT, TAKE THE LEAP AND JUST BUY IT . . . YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID !!!
Not all solid wood
Jennifer from Tennessee – Verified Buyer
The book case is good. I was a little surprised that the back isn't solid wood like the rest of the bookcase. The backing is just like this cardboard kind of piece that you just nail onto the back of the bookcase. Other than that, the quality is actually pretty good for the price.

Even though it's made from MDF and is quite heavy, it is well made and stylish. I used it against the wall behind my bathroom door for extra storage and used several baskets to hold towels and toiletries. The look was spa like. The cobblestone is a taupe color that worked well for my needs, but the color can easily be changed by painting.
LOVE LOVE this Bookcase...AWESOME <3
Linda from West peoria, IL – Verified Buyer
I recvd this in a "very" timely manner and LOVE it...it is much nicer then I expected. I know some do not like the back "beadboard" piece but it looks good and still much nicer then others I have seen. Bookcase is beautiful and sturdy and very well made and I love the color...unfortunately I still have it on my floor trying to figure out the camscrews...my son will come and finish it in a couple minutes for me. Considering getting another one in another month or so !!
Patricia from Livonia, MI – Verified Buyer
Fast delivery, careful packing and shipping, and the product looked exactly as pictured. Sturdy with ample space for the grandchildren's books and toys. All that I expected -- and more. Just perfect for the price!
Does the job
Anne from Seattle, WA – Verified Buyer
Once assembled, the shelves are all very sturdy. Can't beat the price. Looks nicer than the quality it's made from. Only complaint would be the the cheap cardboard backing, but it hasn't been an issue for us.
Great looking bookcase.
Joanne from Acton, MA – Verified Buyer
Loved your bookcase. Very sturdy, in fact, quite heavy. My husband easily assembled it and we decided to attach it to the wall to prevent it from falling on our young grandsons if they tried to climb it! Luckily, the hardware to do that was thoughtfully included. Very happy with the color too.
