    I am always weary of reviews that trash self assembled furniture like this for being cheap. You are buying a 50 dollar shelf that at other big box stores would be 100 or more. At a furniture store it would be a few hundred(and you don't always get any better quality). This shelf is made of wood that is heavier than I expected based on other reviews. This shelf is actually very good for 50 dollars. When assembling, be sure to align all pieces the exact same way as the instruction book, then everything will work perfectly as you assemble. Any questions? Just look back at the picture and make sure the piece is oriented exactly the same. It fits together with ease. The instructions claim you need a drill, but I think that is only if you mount it to the wall(into a stud), I did not need a drill to assemble the shelf. Just a phillips screw driver. This is an easy shelf to put together. Keep in mind, for the shelves to all be flush with the wall and perfectly level, you will need to mount this to the wall so it does not tip over. If you don't want to mount it to the wall, just tilt it against the wall. The shelves will not be perfectly level, they will be slightly slanted up, which means nothing will fall off of them. This is how I use it, since I didn't want to screw into a rented wall. It seems to work perfectly fine like that, just make sure that you tilt it enough so there is no risk of it falling forward. If you are in doubt or have kids, you probably want to mount it to the wall. For 50 bucks this shelf is pretty solid. The only problem I found is if you don't mount it to the wall, it can wobble a little left and right. Just enough to scratch your wall. If you are going to free stand this, get those little self adhesive rubber bumpers meant for cushioning cabinent doors. ("Bulldog Clear Rubber Bumpers" #001113557) A few of those on the very top and the thing won't scratch your wall. Place some on the side if you are putting this in a corner so it touches two walls.

    Other reviews did not seem very appealing, but I still went ahead and bought one. Have not regretted buying it. It was easy to install and the nifty part about it is it did not take up so much space and yet functional. Very good for small living places. Big bang for your bucks!

    This bookcase is great for decor, and it has just the modern look I was going for. It was easy to assemble and excellent for the price. It has a rich espresso look, almost black.

    • No. When ours came it was so dark...I'd say it was more black than espresso.

    • It is a really dark brown, almost black. I have it next to an IKEA dresser that is "brown/black" and it matches it almost exactly. The shelves are a tiny bit more brown than the dresser.

    • It comes with brackets -- attaching it or not is optional. But I found that it was not sturdy enough without attaching it to the wall... One bracket at the top -- it was quite simple.

    • It doesn't have to attach. It will be fine and can be moved easily without putting a hole in your wall.

    • Yes it can attach to the wall. But you don't have to. It comes with the tools to attach to wall if you would like. We didn't attach ours and it sits just like the pictured shelf with no problem. Plus we have heavy items on it. Works well for us.
