Very nice item -- good value for the price! from Kentucky on 11/23/2014 – Verified Buyer
I just received my book case the other day. I'm very inept at putting these types of things together, so I was very pleased that I easily put this together by myself!! The directions could be better -- it's just pictures with no text. But I was able to figure it out. It's fairly inexpensive for a bookcase, so the backing is a sort of thick, white coated cardboard. However, when it's assembled and has items in it, you don't notice that. It's a nice looking unit and is the perfect size for a small wall. I got it to use on a small wall in my laundry room to keep my cookbooks in. It's perfect and looks very nice -- actually improves the looks of the whole room! Very happy with this purchase. Good value for the money; easy to put together; looks very nice Directions would be even easier with some text instead of just drawings

Stylish, functional, perfect for smaller spaces from Portland, OR on 11/17/2013 – Verified Buyer
I bought this to go in a corner of my dining room to display dish and glass sets. I needed something with specific dimensions to fit that corner and not block a door or an electrical outlet, and I wanted it to match the open corner shelves that I previously bought in color and style. It works perfectly. It's a beautiful, tall bookcase with good, roomy shelves. I put the entire thing together myself (not my first rodeo with assemble it yourself furniture), and while it took a little time, it wasn't that difficult. If I had any knock against it, it's the same one I have against most furniture like this: the hardware for doing a safe secure to the wall is ineffective. Although I have no doubt that the wall anchor would function fine, you are expected to attach it to the backing of the unit, which is nothing more than a thicker cardboard like board. It doesn't affect the looks of the piece at all, but if it ever did try to topple over, I'm sure that the backing would simply pull free from the rest of the bookcase and it would fall anyway. I could be wrong, but I'm not willing to test it. So for now, I just hope none of my cats decides that this would make a great tree to climb. Despite this minor failing, I would highly recommend this piece and wouldn't hesitate to purchase from Wayfair again.

Incorrect Dimension take away from a Great Product from New Buffalo, MI on 03/31/2014 – Verified Buyer
I ordered two of these bookcases to 'hack' and transform them into shelving for my pantry. They were easy to assemble(solo) and there wasn't any chips or scratches, and I was ecstatic!! When I ordered them for my space I was using the dimension that were posted on-line, after assembly I tried to place them in the area that I was intending to make into a pantry, and they wouldn't fit. I was puzzled. After measuring my area again, I couldn't understand...it was because the shelves were 3-inches wider than what was on product dimensions (they are 20-inches wide and not 17). In the long run, I ended up working them into another part of the pantry. They are sturdy, and working out well. Would have given 5-stars had the dimensions been actual.

Good value and thoughtful details from Santa Fe, NM on 01/10/2015 – Verified Buyer
Trust me when I say I'm challenged in assembling things. In spite of that, I was able to put this bookcase together in about an hour and it came out great. I didn't mind the picture-only instructions because translated text can be confusing! The bookcase is in my sewing studio and will hold stacks of fabric so I needed something sturdy. I like that the side panels and shelves are fairly heavy and will support a substantial amount of weight. The heavy cardboard backing came folded and gets hammered into the frame but it will not be noticeable after fabric is stacked on the shelves. The screw caps are a nice finishing detail and there were several spare hardware pieces included. I feel that I got a great deal for what I paid ($75 on sale and free shipping) and have ordered another one. I would highly recommend this bookcase for casual storage.

Patricia 10/15/14 from Niskayuna, NY on 10/15/2014 – Verified Buyer
This is a great quality bookcase. As others mentioned the backing is cardboard. But the bookcase is a heavy wood and durable. Much better quality than I thought it would be. Love the black color and design of the top and bottom that borders the shelf. Easy to put together. Just line up all the shelves and screw in all the shelves on one side first then do the other side so shelves are evenly spaced between the side boards. Great product for the price!
