I really like these! $15.00 a peice!

I bought 2 of these, bpught a door with no hole in it, painted it white and wow what a beautiful scrapbook station with a place for my cricut, and bins, great for storage and a awesome table. My friends love this idea too.

excellent bookshelf. strong and sturdy

I cannot fathom why some are saying this bookshelf is weak or unstable. I constructed it exactly as instructed and its very stable. As a matter of fact, some of my heaviest books are on this bookcase. Its not bowing or wobbling in the slightest. I recommend that if you are not a diy type of person, to get a pre constructed bookcase. This bookcase will be exactly as strong as advertised if it is put together properly. There are unfortunately no written instructions for this piece, but if you pay attention well enough to the pictures its all smooth sailing. I had mine assembled in 30 minutes. It has a very elegant look to it. The black fits with most any colour scheme. Its perfect for most rooms. Kitchen for cooking books, bedroom, living space, etc... I need another bookcase for my flat, and I will be buying another of these I love it, I highly recommend it, and I will be buying more

Completely stable, no dings or scratches.

I don't remember how much I paid in store for mine, as it's been a couple years I think, but it still is in great condition with no issues with weight and stability whatsoever. The people who give this 1 or 2 stars obviously didn't know what they were buying. Look at all the 4 and 5 star reviews and you'll see that people agree that the quality is just fine for this price. It's actually more than fine. It's great. It sits perfectly flat on my low carpet and I like it so much I think I'll get the 5-shelf Mainstays bookcase next time. Keep in mind that if you have hardcover books you'll only have room for two rows of books because of the significant difference in height of hard cover books. If you have all massmarket sized paperback books then you'll have room for 3 full rows of books. Since I have a full row of hard cover books on the bottom, I was able to use the top layer for all my mass market paperbacks and was left with a small gap in the middle of the book shelf to lay extra books flat. The depth of the book shelf allows this to be possible. I am looking forward to getting another 3-shelf or 5-shelf case!

Very good for the cost

I bought this and put it together pretty easily in the same day. It's easy to miss a detail in the instructions... as you'll see I did... but the product is sturdy only took about 30 min to assemble. For the money, about $16 total, I'm very pleased with this bookshelf.


So I give this product 2 stars only because I had bought one in black a while against that is perfect and I have no issues with it. I bought a second one in rustic oak put everything together no problem put it in my spare room and place children's books in middle shelf, a few weeks later I noticed the middle board was bowed. I don't have my receipt or original box so not sure I can return it or replace it, but I am very disappointed. (Picture is after I removed the books from that shelf.

Warped wood

So I bought this today and while opening and removing the pieces out of the box several of the pieces were bowed. So I went back and got another box opened and same thing. I returned that as well and even exchanged for a different color thinking it was a bad batch and nope after putting the third together I noticed things were at an angle...i can't return it now that it's put together won't fit in my car walmart needs to help out with this this is ridiculous waste of money oh and the backing didn't even fit properly. Had to put my shelf on the third niches because the second one the shelf was higher on one side.
Do not buy! Worse waste of $20 in a long time. The back, which they claim is essential for stability is cardboard. It split and the particle board was damaged during assemby, even with me being cautious, as I could tell this was not going to be a durable piece. Unfortunately I paid with cash so won’t be marked as a verified buyer. This really is garbage

Not worth it

I don't know if I just got a faulty product but this was terrible. Only got a month ago and screws/nails busted right through the pieces of wood and just completely fell apart when I put, you guessed it, books in it. Save your money and find a real wood bookcase secondhand like I did.

Save your money

Broken pieces and scratches and dents. By the time you put this together it already looks like you bought it used at goodwill. You might as well buy a shelf used at goodwill. I glued this thing back together because that was less of a hassle than dealing with their bs. I've made my mistake once. Never buying this again.

Not even worth the money

Extremely flimsy and sways side to side. I did it exactly like the instructions started. im going to have to but regular screws to make it more stable. If that doesn't work I'm just throwing it away. The back is cardboard and does not fit the back. As you can see in the pictures how it leans. You just slightly touch it and it leans the other way.
