great display case

 Top 250 contributer
I was looking for a good priced book case to use to display items, Mainly a harp.... So i chose this one, and i think it is perfect. There were similar cases to this one, but not in this type of cinnamon brown. It was Easy to put together, although longer than expected since you do have to nail the back onto the case. There are multi positions that you can put the shelfs in. Each shelf can hold up to 25lbs and the bottom can hold up to 40lbs.

Not bad for the price
by -
 Verified purchaser
For under $30, I didn't have high expectations for this bookcase. As long as it matched my other furniture and did its job, it was fine by me. The instruction manual to assemble this bookcase was simple to understand, which was great. There were only a few pieces to put together and you will need a phillips screwdriver and a hammer. The backing of the bookcase is a flimsy board. The backing was tri-folded for shipping. I didn't like the way the folds showed up on the face side with the paper cracking on the folds, so I flipped it and nailed it down backwards. It didn't look too bad. If you put it against a white/beige wall, it's unnoticeable. I think the white creases on the dark wood colored side would have bothered me more.

Satisfied :)
by -
It LITERALLY took me ten minutes to put this shelf together. And that was only because of the 26 nails that I had to use to meticulously hammer the back panel onto the case. It was a breeze to assemble! I love it...looks great!

More espresso than cherry
by -
I read a few reviews about this bookshelf saying that it was more espresso & that's what I was looking for. So I took the chance & bought it for my son's nursery. It is definitely espresso, I don't see how they could even say it's cherry it's so dark. But it does its job of holding toys & decorative things & that's all I needed it for.

Just Right
by -
I was looking for a small bookshelf for my baby's nursery to hold small objects like toys, books, baby monitor, etc. This fits perfectly in her room without taking up too much space. The color is so beautiful, perfectly matching her crib and dresser. CANNOT beat the price!

This bookcase is actually very good value for the price. No its not real wood, its particle board and a card board backing... but for the price its a steal very good value, its strong enough to hold what it needs to I stack all sorts of things from my candle shop on here and it works fine! the bottom shelf is strongest.... I can tell you I have two 5 shelf book cases from Ikea that are particle board made and based on the quality it is about the same quality which is why I am pretty surprised since I have had my Ikea book case for over 10 years... so you are getting a very good deal. I brought two of these and they work great for my shop stuff! Also love the appearance :) I highly recommend it and its easily to put together! First time I ever put furniture together so I had no trouble with it , the first one took me an hour and then when I know what I was doing the second book case was like 30 minutes tops very easy to follow... just dont forget to have a hammer and screw driver handy for putting it together.

Nice
by -
This is a very nice little bookcase, easy to put together. I needed something to keep my VHS tapes in as well as some photos in frames and do-dads. This was perfect. I made one mistake when I put it together, I put one of the side boards on backwards. Be sure the holes face inward before you screw it together and put the backing on. It turned out great even after my boo-boo. It looks good with my other light oak furniture. I have an entertainment center, large bookcase, coffee and end table all by Sauder. I love this brand, and if you have any missing pieces or something is messed up they have great customer service through their web site and will replace or send you missing parts very quickly. I have never had missing parts but one of the boards on the entertainment center was cracked and I got a replacement in a couple of days. Walmart has the best prices on the Sauder brand and you cannot beat the site-to-store shipping and the very inexpensive ship to home services. I recommend this cute little bookcase, Sauder furniture, and Walmart highly!

Simple and effective
by -
The bookshelf was really easy to put together, make your box on the floor and put the back on, your done! The shelves are nice, I always liked how Sauder's pins are to hold shelves up, they have that steel pin with a clear rubber head u slide on so that shelves stay put and snug. I think it is a great value and works perfectly for what I wanted it for (magazines and notebooks I've collected over the years). 2 Shelves are adjustable and the piece looks great, its a bit darker in my opinion than in picture, it resembles espresso color but if you look close the brown is there. If you have trouble with the cam twist locks (those metal disks you put in the pre-drilled seats to lock pieces together with) just use a trick I do: get some bar soap and rub some around the cam and alittle inside the seat/wood hole. It should turn the full 210 degrees needed to lock the pieces together! Enjoy.

Painted pressboard with a paper backboard. We bought two and returned one. It would have been better for us to have spent the extra dollars to get actual solid wood.

I purchased a total of four of these. Two 3 shelf and two 5 shelf. They cover an entire wall of a room and accomodate my new flat tv, books and various decorative stuff. I didn't put the cardboard backs on and secured them to the wall. It fits beautifully and looks custom.
