A good tip for these shelves...

A good tip for making these shelves look the best they can is get a black sharpie and color in the exposed holes and the silver things that hold up the shelves. It's a little time consuming, but if you take the time it looks more like a $75 shelf than a $30 one. It's a nice shelf; we've had it about 6 months. I'm about to buy my second one for more space. There is a faux grain in the black you can see in the close up. Also as I mentioned before, just coloring the holes in this much makes it look better from far away like in the far away picture. And the top of this shelf is not black, but that hasn't been a problem for us because its tall.

I ordered four of these book shelves. Two of them have broken pieces that are so broken it may prevent me from putting them together. The boards labeled "A" were so broken that simply touching them during unpacking caused the edge to crumble apart. The "A" board is on the edge of the package so it is possible this happened during shipping however it appears that there is extremely hard card board around the entire edge of the package which would have prevented breaks such as this. Shipping them back isnt an option because it's too expensive and time consuming. I had them shipped here and paid the extra because I can't fit them in my car so taking them to the store to return them isnt an option either. I will probably consider it a loss and I will never buy another one.

Make sure you have wood glue handy... and im not even sure that will help. 4 wood screws hold the halves together. Problem is this is particle board and the screws separate the particle board pieces (see pictures). What you have left is something so flimsy that it will fall apart if not careful when you move it. Something this tall should not be so delicate. As others noted... there are scratches in the black side of the wood... and get this, pencil and pin markings on the plain side. Once i get the wood glue, i'll let it cure for 24 hours and see what mess i have left. Hopefully i wont have to return it (knock on wood).

I'm in college and have a lot of textbooks. They take up so much space when you don't have a bookshelf. I purchased two of these and recently put them together. One of the pieces of PARTICLE board was damaged (we still used it). The other bookcase was in perfect condition. Both are functioning as we speak even with the damage. My father helped me put this together. The first one took a while to put together. The instructions aren't the easiest to follow. You need A LOT OF SPACE to do this on the floor like the directions say. The second bookshelf took significantly less time to put together, since experience is everything and we had already finished one. I do not think either of us would have been able to put this together alone. When I told my father the directions say you only need one person he jokingly said "I bet it said that one person could be six years old." I have only had the bookshelves up for one day (one overnight, one just today) but I have to admit they are beautiful and save me a lot of space. I tried weighing the books before I put them on the shelves so far I think the directions are accurate (50 on the bottom and 3rd shelf 35 on the rest). I put my hardcover textbooks on the bottom shelves and leisure reading and whatnot on the upper shelves. My father has a really expensive bookcase in his office that is about this size (depth, height, and 5 shelves) and his shelves are dipping in the middle. I think because this is actually two bookshelves (one on the bottom and another attachment on the top) it will hold more weight. The higher stationary shelf holds more weight because it is supported by the side and not just those metal shelf holders that go in the shelf holes (hope that makes sense). The few things I did not like about these shelves: 1. I couldn't put mine right next to one another. the sides on both were warping out in some spots and could not perfectly fit next to one another. This could just be my bookcases I have seen others pictures where they perfectly align next to one another. 2. They should have used more of those metal silver screw and socket things (have no idea what they are called) instead of the plastic screws. Those metal socket and screws are great and really keep the shelves together the plastic screws are cheap. 3. I wish they aligned the top more with the sides so the sides didn't stick up above the top of the book shelf. Other than that I love this bookcase. For the price it is amazing. I really needed bookcases and nothing else was this inexpensive. I think if you put it together well it will work for you. I am going to post pictures. P.S. My brother has one of these, has had it for years and has moved it around his house and has moved from apartment to apartment (like 6 times in 5 years [maybe more my memory is bad]) and it is still in working condition.

After reading the reviews on here prior to purchasing the bookcases, I was a little scared of what to expect when I opened the boxes. Luckily, nothing was damaged like a few others claimed theirs were. Assembly was tricky at first, but after the first one, the second was a breeze. It looks absolutely fabulous alone, but we found out both fit in the same nook on one side of our fireplace, and let me tell you--two side-by-side look a lot more expensive than 30 bucks. You cannot beat this deal... My only criticism is that the back panel of the bookcase could be a lot sturdier than the super thin flap-like panel you nail on, but hey... it's 30 bucks! I am confident these bookcases will last me a long time (10 years) before I desire new ones. Plus they're very chic and nice looking. Just be careful assembling it and you'll be fine!

I live in an apartment that had an odd indentation on the wall that not even a bed would look nice there. I wanted something to brighten up the room and just something to fill that space, and for a cheap price too considering college student + cheap almost always =s a good deal. So I found this and was debating for a long time wether to buy it or not because of the reviews being so ambiguous. But I eventually just figured wth and might as well do it. Well I am totally glad I did it because it looks great and its still a work in progress but overall I absolutely LOVE it and I totally recommend it to anyone else who is debating it. p.s. FYI-the only downside is that if you get this product delivered, during the movement, you may end up with broken wood or a scratch or two. Don't hesitate tho because the only board that broke for me was the small one that attaches at the very bottom, which is easily fixable with just screwing it into the same spot it would've initially gone into

We bought 3 of these. These are easy to put together as long as your wife does it! Assembly time: First one, 45 minutes. 2nd one, 25 minutes. 3rd one, 15 minutes. Once you learn on the first one, the rest go up easy. These hold lots of books and knick knacks. Excellent for organizing! Best deal in the world!

I am really pleased with this item despite some of the reviews. I bought two to have side by side, and I think they look wonderful. If I had more space, I would have bought a third. I only wish that it was also available in a dark wood finish, I opted for the black over the light wood finish.

My rating is based on the price and for such a low price it is a great deal. A lot of others complain about the assembly or the cardboard backing, but actually these are not hard to assemble, they are very sturdy if you assemble them correctly, and all shelves like these have cardboard backing. Repeat ALL of them have cardboard backing. When you assemble them the cardboard backing is what gives the shelves its strength, it holds it square and keeps it from rocking side to side. The back is the most critical part of the shelf and if you don't put in all the nails it won't be as strong as it could be.

This bookcase looks great and holds a bunch of stuff. It was a great value at only $25 it was exactly what I was looking for. The directions for putting it together were difficult to understnd but it didn't take too long to put together. I'm actually considering getting the 3-shelf one for my house now too - I have some in my classroom and they look very nice. As previous poster did mention the backing is just cardboard so don't expect anything heavy-duty but it looks good and does the job!

I must admit I was a skeptic when purchasing this product. I needed something to cover a bare spot on a wall in my living room, didn't need an actual sturdy bookcase. This was exactly what I needed. Would not put too many books on it, but perfect for just a few books and some decor. My husband read the directions and had no problems with assembly.

I absolutely love this bookcase! Yes it is very inexpensive but at the same time you assemble it as directed with a little elbow grease it makes an awesome addition to any room... I purchased a hand drill from Walmart and it saved my life when putting this together.... definitely will be buying 2 more bookcases for my home!!!

I would like to put a 19" flatscreen tv on a bookshelf, would this be able to hold one? Thx

  • A. It definitely would, but if you wanted to put it high up, you would want this shelf attached to the wall. On a side note, for those who have heavy books to put on these shelves, make certain that you flip the adjustable shelves every year or so to negate bowing, because they definitely will bow.

  • A. Although I haven't purchased one yet. my sister did for Christmas. Her dad put it together and just left the bottom shelf off and she was able to put her 26 inch tv on there and it looks great. I have actually been looking on like it in the store not realizing it was a bookshelf until she told me.

  • A. Possibly but I don't trust the dependablity of this bookshelf. I have a small television that is maybe a total of 10" and I had to buy a seperate piece for it because I just do not trust the quality of the bookshelf. Also, The top of the bookshelf is reletively close to the cealing compared to other bookshelfs and therefore it may not even fit.
