Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LUC1 Love it!
My husband and I love it. It is a very nice quality bookcase. It is a little top heavy but not of a safety concern. We are using it as a bookcase in our little daughter's room. She is 16 months and is thoroughly enjoying picking out books and rearranging them! I would recommend it. Also in a few reviews I read about the stickers that are provided to cover the screws. They are a very different color. However, the ones on the inner top shelf are not really visable and the ones on the inner bottom shelf are covered by books. So it isn't a problem but would be nice if they were the same color as the wood and asthetically pleasing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kentucky43 Excellent book case
I like this bookcase, a great value, easy to put together. I did not want to spend a lot of money and I was cautious about buying this bookcase until I read the reviews so I am so glad I purchased it. My only comment that would be negative is the small circles that were sent to cover the screws on the inside of the bookcase were completely the wrong color, way too light. I decided not to use them. Also my husband didn't even know what it was in that plastic bag he thought it was sandpaper and couldn't figure out why he would be needing that so when I looked at it I saw the circles but as I say they need to improve the color. I am enjoying it and highly recommend it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MEinMD Poor quality for the money
My husband and I had been saving for some office furniture. Years ago we bought the matching filing cabinet, which I was very impressed with, so we thought this piece would be similarly impressive. Although the finished product looks good from afar, we are very disappointed with its construction. The screws do not match up well with the holes and there were several times they cracked through the wood. The finished product is also not as sturdy as I would have expected. We would have expected this level of quality from Target or Walmart, but not Home Decorators. We are hoping the desk is better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Samars7 Beautiful-Great value for $
This was a Christmas gift for my daughter. I'd seen other reviews on shipping and damage and was a bit skeptical about potential returns or repairs. HOWEVER, It arrived within 7 days, was packed & shipped well and all pieces arrived whole--in excellent condition. I and my fiance assembled this together in under an hour. The workmanship is beautiful and sturdy. Its style matches the furniture she has (that was purchased at a far higher price). You would never know that you could find a piece of this quality at such a good price. I am so pleased with Home Decorators. It was a great experience!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TinaPHD Solid piece, good value
I had already purchased the Salem low boy so I was familiar with the quality. It is a nice piece and perfect for my psychotherapy practice. It is not solid wood, however, but is a pretty veneer over what looks like a composite. The felt disks that are designed to cover up the hardware do not stick and are not the right color as well. Outside of these flaws, the bookcase is definitely a stately accent piece. Clients have complimented it and ask where it was purchased. I do not regret this purchase at all and the bookcase definitely completes the look of my office.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by officeprof Stunning Piece
This bookcase exceeded my expectations. I bought it for the entryway in my office, which was bare, and it looks like a designer's purchase. Very elegant and solid. Agree with other reviewers that the little plastic stickers to cover the silver screws were way off on color, but I took one of the reviewer's (more than one I think) suggestions and used a furniture marker - perfect! Love this piece! Note that the 3 shelf/small version doesn't fit all that many books (2 shelves of standard sized and one shelf for very short books, or, as I did, some books laid flat).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by motherof2cutegirls So far so good book case
This book shelf seems to be a pretty great product so far. It was easy to assemble. I was disappointed on the space between each shelf. They are adjustable but when you need to put big children's books in the bookshelf, it doesn't leave a whole lot of room on one of the shelves. We had just a few inches for the very top shelf just to hold a few personal items. Also, when you order the white color, it's not a bright white. It's a dull white creamy color. I wasn't expecting it to be such a dull white. The wood seems to be great so far.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Brun Needed a part replaced
My first shipment arrived with a paint run on the side of the bookcase. Home Decorators were very prompt and courteous replacing the damaged part. Fortunately they sent both sides of the bookcase in the second shipment because one side had a big chip out of it and the other had a small chip. (MY husband thought the chips occured in shipping.) Rather than wait for another return shipment, we touched up the small chip with paint. My husband (who is very handy) liked the construction of the bookcase.
