Completely satisfied, Love the space!

You get what you pay for
I was very disappointed in the quality of this bookcase. The pegs used to connect the parts were plastic and some of them bent as they were put in, and they didn't hold the pieces together well. Both of the screw connectors holding the top to the bottom came right through the side and pulled off a chunk on the inside of the unit. This necessitated using L-brackets to hold the top and bottom sections. We got it together and set it up, but it doesn't look good. Hopefully, it will hold the weight of the books.

Book shelves

Could have used a little better directions, but once I put one together the rest went real easy.

Exactly what I was looking for

Not the best quality. But for this price the quality is relatively good! Easy to put together.

Amazing experience when I shop at Wal-Mart.

Love these shelves so I bought four two for the living room and two for the bedroo. Excellent pierces and fast delivery. Easy to install. Thank you Wal-Mart it's a pleasure doing business with you. I will continue to shop with you always.

Worth the price

For 50$ I bought 2 of these. They were easy to assemble no more than 30 min each. It's not high quality wood so be mindful with the weight you put in the center of each shelf. Once the back rest was set in, the bookshelf didn't feel as flimsy but I wouldn't recommend moving it around once you put stuff in. Overall I would recommend if you're buying only to toss out after you move not an item I would reuse and for 25$ each a years use is worth it.

Great buy!

I was hesitant after reading other reviews, but I love this shelf. This shelf does take a long time to assemble (about an hour and change if a person is doing it alone), but it a really good buy for $25. I got the walnut color and it matches my other furniture perfectly; it is a good shade of medium-brown, just what I was looking for. It fits all my books perfectly and I am considering buying a second shelf to add to it. I would recommend.

Good product for price

I bought two of these bookshelves and had them delivered to my new apartment. The boxes were intact and there were no missing or damaged parts or boards. While an instruction manual is included, I ended up searching for a video on YouTube for a visual reference. I would highly recommend following the video (https://youtu.be/_DZF_uHdwME) if you are less mechanically adept. It took around 30-45 minutes per bookcase to install and place the bookshelves where I wanted them. I would suggest building the bookcase with the bottom board close to the location of where you plan to place it. Once the book case is erect, it is hard to move. My biggest pet peeve was the amount of Styrofoam pieces that went everywhere. You will definitely need to vacuum when you're done putting together this bookshelf (to be expected with most projects).

The Truth

A lot of the bad reviews are coming from people who didn't build it the right way. I saw "power tools" in one review...lol You're not supposed to use power tools. 1. They are great for light collectibles which is what I bought them for. I don't know if I would trust it stacked with heavy books but if you're creative and good with tools you could build them to withstand an earthquake. 2. The quality is less than what Ikea offers but not 60.00 less. Chipboard and particle board is all the same junk...lol 3. I followed the video on Youtube and it was simple. It took me less than 20 minutes for the first one and even less than that for the second. 4. Two people should do the job, 5. I don't think I'll need more but If I did I would definitely buy. The price is insanely inexpensive. I was thinking if they didn't work out I could still use the shelving and mount brackets to the wall. Go to Home Depot and price shelving. 6. I think you'll be ok as long as you take your time, follow the instructions and do not move them by yourself or when they are full. 7. Make sure you anchor them to the wall! Good Luck

Great shelves, just need extra support added.

The shelves look great, but we had to add extra support to them with some L joints as they were tilting to the side quite a bit. The construction of the shelves being split into two sections makes them feel a little less sturdy and kind of wobbly. We decided to keep the backing off of the shelves because it's a flimsy printed cardboard, and the look open shelving looked better for our space. The color of the shelves is great, and with a little added support they have worked out great for us. Good purchase for anyone who doesn't mind a little extra work and hardware to give them more stability.

1. It&#39;s a bookshelf, its shelves will hold shoes. Whether shoes look nice on a bookshelf is subjective so only you can answer that. In my opinion putting shoes on a bookshelf is as visually appealing as keeping pots and pans in a toilet.
by grimwrapper
2. Every shelf has the option to have a bigger or smaller space.
by Rae87
3. 3 adjustable shelves. There is one shelf that is built as you put the whole case together. From the main picture it&#39;s that third shelf.
by Rani
4. I love mine, and yes you could put shoes on this shelf, they would work nicely for a shoe storage place....
by angelstampr
5. Shoes...on a bookshelf? Well, technically the answer is yes, you can put shoes on a bookshelf. You can put anything on a bookshelf. But SHOULD you?
by iDJwithShades
6. Yes, I use mine for shoes it looks great and is sturdy for my lightweight heels.

1. It cannot hold the advertised weight and will collapse if you try. This shelf is best used to hold light decorative items with few books. Trust me, I know from experience.
by RiverSong
2. In my experience more than 10 LBS will cause the shelf to start sagging after a few months. More then 20 LBS will cause your bookshelf to collapse after 4 months.
by grimwrapper
3. no-I would say not-the particle board would split apart. It barely holds together where they predrilled it.
by sillyname
4. Don&#39;t bother. Take it back. It&#39;s so unstable that it could be dangerous.
by Tillie322
5. 2 shelves can hold 50 lbs and the other 3 can hold 35 lbs. 0 lbs on top.

by LiveLoveLaughPray
