    Very nice item -- good value for the price!

    from Kentucky – 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 – 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 – 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 – 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.

    Good for the money!

    from Brooklyn, NY – Verified Buyer

    We bought this bookcase for our room, and so far it's working out great. A piece like this one is really the perfect way to maximize space in a room that might be a little tight, so I definitely recommend this for someone looking to do that without spending a ton of money. It's important to note, however, that the bookcase definitely looks a bit different in person -- it looks higher in quality in the pictures. Once you get your books in there, though, it'll definitely look a lot cuter. PS Have a friend with you to assemble this! It's not terribly difficult, but it took us 2 hours and an extra set of hands seemed essential at the time.

    from Niskayuna, NY – 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!

    Does the trick!

    from Harrington, DE – Verified Buyer

    I bought this for my bathroom, since we don't have much storage space and shelving. It's a great, tall bookcase and was easy to put together. I put it together myself within 45 minutes. I like how the sides are just one long board each, because it makes it sturdier and look less cheap than other bookcases I've bought before at department stores. Giving it four stars because some of the hardware didn't fit well in the predrilled holes, but it wasn't difficult to fix myself.

    Best value

    from Boston – Verified Buyer

    For the price, you cannot go wrong. Very basic but sturdy. They arrive very heavy. However as a female I was able to lift around and build two of these on my own. Once you manage to get the packaging off it's real easy. Here's my tip - decorate your bookcases yourself. Cheaper ones like this tend to look better that way anyway imo. Google ideas, and you'll come up with great tricks to make sure you customize this model to fit right into your home very stylishly, even including the way you lay out your books.

    Black Slim Bookcase

    from GRAND RAPIDS, MI – Verified Buyer

    I purchased 2 of these to flank each side of a larger, more expensive piece I already have in my den because I need more display space. Was uncertain how they would match up ordering them online, sight unseen. They arrived promptly, undamaged, were easy for my husband to assemble and were a decent quality for the price I paid. Once we put one on each side of my heavier, larger center cabinet it all looked like one big custom built unit. The color and finish matched perfectly! Thanks Wayfair for giving me an affordable option that looks great!

    Bookcase for my Teenage Son!!

    from Cheshire, CT – Verified Buyer

    I bought this bookcase for my teenage son. He is an avid reader and has a collection of books that he wants to store and display. We received this bookcase within a week of ordering. My son by himself put the bookcase together in no time at all. We bought the bookcase in black. It looks really nice and it holds alot of books. There is no decorative edging on the bookcase but it is a stable piece of put together yourself furniture. I would definitely recommend to someone looking for the basic bookcase that does it job.
