This was easy to put together and took little time, and it is very sturdy when done. I would purchase again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dbldunc great display table for small area
I bought this unit as an entry table because of the dimensions, price and appearance. I did not realize that I was going to have to assemble it, but turned out to be a good thing. I am not using as a bookshelf, so I did not install the back brackets and the table is still very sturdy and looks great! the narrow depth is perfect for the area I have. The only issues I had with assembly were, 1) the allen wrench provided was too soft and stripped itself, 2) some of the wooden plugs provided to cover the screw holes were too large to fit (I jus sanded them down a little).
Overall we are very satisfied with this table!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DCGirl123 Classy look for reasonable price
I got this book case to use as a small console table in the kitchen. It has a slim profile and looks very elegant. We put a small lamp and accessories on top and pictures and other decor on the other shelves. I like the open back because it lets the color of the freshly painted kitchen through and contrasts nicely. The "X" design on the sides happen to match our barstools perfectly, which we painted a matching expresso color.
My only complaint is that the base of one of the "X" was loose. I put some wood glue to hold it in place and it is fine and not at all noticeable.
Other than that, it is a very nice piece that was just the right size and price! Good value and easy to assemble.

Bought this to go with the white montego desk for my daughter's room. She loves it and it looks great! love the tall shelves which hold tall books and magazine file holders. Paint finish isn't perfect but for the price i am very happy.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Shenz Some Problems with Assembly
When we got these, we had some issues with assembly because some of the holes drilled for the dowels for the cross beams were drilled too far apart for where the dowels lined up. This means either the holes in the beam where the dowels were already inserted and glued were off or the holes drilled into the side panel were off. Either way, it made it difficult to assemble.
The other problem we had were that the the wooden pegs for covering the screws wouldn't all fit into the holes. We had one that kept bouncing out as we tried to fit it in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by photofun Perfect bookcase for me
I needed a bookcase that was open because of a heat register that is in this bedroom. I had a low table which went with my son to his new place and so a solid bookcase was out of the question. I didn't know what I would find but I started out looking in this catalog and found it and said to myself, PERFECT!! and it is. The right height, the open back as well as the sides and the fact that it is indeed a bookcase to put the few books and nic nacs on in this spare room. I like it so much I have other areas in the house that need the same treatment. PERFECT!

Love this bookshelf. Just wanted something simple for me to organize books/magazines that doesn't take up much space. This was the perfect solution -- great price too and the assemble was easy.
