    Great Product - Holes are Not off

    This is a very sturdy shelf. Better construction then expected. All the sides are finished. Contrary to the other reviews, it is not true the holes are off. There is a "top" and "bottom" alignment for the 2 center vertical parts. If you put them in upside down, then the shelves will slant or give the appearance the holes are off. Sadly the instructions do not point out there is a right and wrong orientation for these 2 components so you must pay close attention when assembling it. If you mess up it is not a big deal to unscrew the center vertical parts and put them in properly. Quick to assemble. Do not buy this if you think you are going to use those canvas cube containers as the shelves are 9" deep, which is exactly what I wanted for CD and DVD storage along with a few pictures.

    Looking at the former reviews, I was mislead thinking that the holes for the center partitions do not align at all.........but they do align, all you need to make sure if they all align, if you feel they are not aligned you need to turn the center vertical partitions upside down........ It is quite possible that many will make a mistake about fixing this and end up putting holes so as to align. Product is good but instructions are bad..........which led many to end up drilling holes to make them aligned. Also I felt it would have been better if the depth of this is more.

    After reading other reviews about the shelves not being balanced right, I decided to buy it anyhow and give it a chance. I figured I could always return it to the store. After putting it together I noticed the shelves were not balanced but figured out I had one of the two middle pieces upside down. Once I fixed that, the shelves lined up perfectly. Looks great in my living room!

    I was a little apprehensive after reading some of the reviews, but this turned out to be a great product. I bought two and I am using them as an entertainment center. The shelves lined up perfectly. However, I chose to stagger them for a different effect. The quality is good and space efficient. I would recommend this to anyone looking for something easy and functional.

    NOTE: This review is on the assembly of the product. After pulling all of the pieces out of the box and examining them carefully, I began the task of putting it together. The middle pieces are the ones others seem to have an issue with. Reading the instructions is very important. I too did not read the key information about the two middle pieces. If you look at the ends where the screws go, one end will have two holes. The other end has three. Attach the pieces according to the instructions. If you don't, the shelves will not line up. I am grateful that I found my error shortly after attaching both pieces to one end and saw that one had two holes and the other one had three. I paused, looked at the instructions and saw the tip. I only had to unscrew one shelf to rotate it. It may have taken me 45 minutes to an hour to put it together because I took my time wanting to make sure I follow the instructions exactly. I now have a beautiful cube bookshelf.

    • A. sure but you will have a 2 inch gap between units

    • A. Wouldn't say so with the way the feet are past the bottom shelf. Space from floor to bottom shelf is exactly 2". Per my assembly/instruction sheet the top/bottom shelves hold 50lbs. each; with each shelf insert holding 20lbs. and it warns very sternly about placing anything too heavy on top (making it top heavy!) The top shelf measures 35.5" across and only 9.5" deep (front/back). Total weight assembled: 44lbs. The cubby sections (as shown per walmart website photo) measurements are: 9" high (top/bottom); 10.5" wide (left/right); and 9.5" deep (front/back). Just want to add, the photo can be misleading as the 2 center shelves are actually individual "inserts" that can be height-adjusted from 2" to 32" apart in any combination needed. You can customize the cubbies to needing taller or shorter heights. The width and depth stay the same however. Many also ask for White or Brown (called Espresso). They have those two colors with 6 and 9-cube versions at Bed Bath and Beyond. Per their website: bedbathandbeyond.com, they will be listed under the: Real Simple brand, under Storage Units. They also carry the fabric drawers/boxes.

    • A. Yes- however even with smaller items inside (deco tins and pencil boxes, etc) the shelf did lean forward a bit. I placed it on carpet so the result may be different on non-carpeted flooring.

    • A. No it's not - there's a weight limit that the top of the bookshelf can handle (and I want to say it about 25 pounds, but I honestly can't remember), so it certainly will not hold a second shelf of it's kind. In addition, the depth of the unit is pretty narrow - even if the top shelf could hold more weight, it would be pretty un-sturdy. Hope this helps!

    • A. The directions recommend putting the cardboard on the back to keep the shelf squared and more stable. The way this product is designed i would agree with that. Without the cardboard backing I do not think the shelf would last very long unless if you only store very light things on it. You could buy some corner braces to screw in from the back if you didn't want to put on the cardboard but I'd just look for a different and better shelf.
