Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jettay17 slightly disappointed
i really was hopeful about this bookcase. did the measurements out, was going to put my small tv inside. however, the inside is smaller than what is listed. my fault on that. however, the quality is not great. i put most of it together with my husband which was not too hard but it was extremely wobbly, with no doors attached or nothing inside. it would sway side to side and you almost have to attach it to the wall or i wouldnt have trusted it on its own. i have packaged it up and am returning it.

I was disappointed in how small it was, but that was my mistake for not reading the dimensions. Pretty expensive for what it is, BUT it is a beautiful bookshelf. I have a table that matches that I use as a desk in my office.

Beautiful piece in just the right color (buttercup) for our décor.

The side panels, top panel and the bottom panel are being held together with the help of the lightweight back panel. For the price (the regular price anyway) I wish it came with some sturdy support to hold the panels together in a rectangle and not be so shaky.
The appearance is modern and it looks inexpensive. Was hoping for an older and cozy look since Southport is marketed as "cottage" style.
As for the good part, the package arrived safely with all its components intact and no damage. Assembly took three hours with just one person doing it, but it was not difficult at all.

We purchased this to go in our pantry to hold sets of dishes and serve-ware. The fit was perfect for the space and the cabinet looks like a much more expensive piece of cabnetry. We sanded the face of the backboard and painted it a contrasting color to highlight the pattern on our dinnerware. Sanding was easily done and the paint adhered beaurifully. The cabinet was easy to put together, but don't follow the instructions. Be sure to put the back of the cabinet on BEFORE you attach the glass doors. We also replaced the knobs that came with the cabinet with porcelain knobs to match the rest of the cabinets in the pantry. Beautiful!!

The bookcase with doors is very attractive. Don't expect it to be blemish free though. I had two "cracked" spots where the manufacturer turned the receiver for the cam bolts too tight. In both cases on this product the blemishes were hidden and didn't infringe on the integrity of the product. I would recommend inspecting each piece beforehand, not just to be sure all pieces are present, but to assure a replacement piece/part isn't necessary before assembly begins. Just be aware the replacement may take several weeks to arrive.

Must've looked at dozens of china cabinets to show off my antique jadite dinnerware. This Southport bookcase in buttercup yellow, with glass doors, was the absolute perfect choice for my 1930 style kitchen and dining area. Everyone is delighted with its simple, but elegant, good looks.
Assembly went without a hitch. Previous experience with this type of furniture helped. One shelf had some damage to the paint. Fortunately, it was on an undersurface and not seen. All screw holes were accurately placed, and the doors hang perfectly. Delivery across the country was three days faster than expected.

I purchased this glass-doored bookshelf for my acupuncture treatment room to display items. It was okay to assemble; instructions were good, but getting the hinged glass doors on proved a bit tricky due to the weight of the doors and lining up those tiny holes for the screws. Also, I had one bogus screw that I had to replace from my own supplies. It seems very solid once assembled, however.
The shelf sat out in a large room for over 2 weeks before I finally put it in my office; it's very fumey even after all that time. If I had to sleep in a room with it, it would be nauseating.
