Sturdy, cream colored slightly distressed finish, this is a very attractive piece of furniture! from Montgomery, AL on 09/11/2014 – Verified Buyer
Having never ordered anything from Wayfair, I read all of the reviews on this shelf. I ordered with confidence that it would fit into my space and be the shelf I was looking for to store things in a craft room. It is true, the color is slightly "off" in the photo on my computer screen. It is a lovely shade of cream with a bit of a distressed finish. The assembly was quite "do-able" with the help of my husband and the very well written instructions. I would recommend a power screw driver. We had the piece unpacked, assembled and in place in about an hour. The packing was superior! The instructions were well written and illustrated, the hardware was more than adequate with a few pieces to spare. I plan to order the matching piece with the doors on the bottom. For the price I could not be happier! This lovely shelf unit would have been 2-2.5 times the price in a store. Thanks Wayfair!

Nice details, sturdy, one star off for finish and color from Santa Cruz, CA on 12/09/2014 – Verified Buyer
This is a nice piece for this price point, it's very sturdy and the shelves will hold lots of books. The finish definitely took some getting used to. As other reviewers have mentioned, the bookcase is definitely not white, but a cream color or more of a white washed faux wood finish. The cardboard bead board backing is very flimsy, but once you get books in and stand back from a distance you can't tell. It's a pretty little piece with some nice detail and I really enjoy it. I would just pay attention to the color and faux finish details as other reviewers have noted prior to ordering as this is definitely a cream colored/white washed faux wood bookcase or you may be unhappy with the look when you open your box.

Sturdy, Well-Made, Great Quality from Fairfax, VA on 11/16/2014
A high-quality piece of furniture! The delivery box is extremely heavy! I had to carry the items separately to where I was going to assemble the bookcase because the entire product is very heavy. I put this item together by myself. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. There are a couple steps that are difficult to do by yourself where I had to lay on the floor inside the frame to fasten some of the parts practically upside down :) but it's do-able. The finished product looks great, very high-quality and sturdy. It's worth the money and the time to assemble (approximately 3 hours with no break, by myself). Highly recommend!

Assembly instructions easy to follow, good quality, durable, sturdy, professional finish
Extremely heavy delivery box, some steps hard to do by yourself on assembly

BEST BOOKCASES!!!! BUY THESE! from Brookfield, WI on 05/05/2015 – Verified Buyer
In finishing our master closet I wanted something that I could use in another area of our home. In two years we will be remodeling our master bath and this closet is attached. We had not done anything to our closet in 12 years. Major update needed without wanting to spend lots of cash in a closet. We purchased only ONE unit and when my husband put it together we immediately ordered another one! They came within two days, free shipping. Here is the best part: heavy yes, but the structure & design and finish is amazing. I am in love with these cabinets. The beauty part is that when we eventually re-do our bath/closet, I can easily put these two bookcases ANYWHERE in my house. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Pros: beautiful design, white wash tea stain, love the beadbord on the back, bunn feet
Cons: none

Attractive and functional from Helena, MT on 04/22/2015
I read MANY reviews before purchasing this product. I also purchased two matching library bookcases with the cabinet and when put together it looks like a set of built-in bookshelves but for a fraction of the cost. Many people commented on the product being damaged in transit so I actually ordered it through a home improvement store and had it shipped directly to them. Perfect condition. I felt the directions were wonderful. The color is like real vanilla, cream color. The distress marks are not that noticeable to me but I guess that could be something that varies with lot numbers. It took me about 7 hours to build three bookcases. The shelves are very sturdy. I filled them with textbooks and heavy books and they are very capable of handling them. I live in a potential earthquake area so I had to buy wall brackets separately. These shelves are so solid I would hate for them to fall on me!

Pros: easy assemble, sturdy, durable, attractive
Cons: should include wall bracket

Looks great, once it is put together from Naples, FL on 10/15/2015 – Verified Buyer
I bought three pieces to match, and the book shelf was the easiest to assemble. Yet, it did take some effort. All of the parts were delivered, which was nice. This shelf is really heavy, so be sure you have someone to help assemble it. I have rated the desk and file cabinet that match as well.

Pros: Great value, it looks like much more expensive furniture
Cons: I wish they had a small filing cabinet to match. I had to buy a contrasting one (in black)

Exceptional Quality: Looks like an $800.00 book shelf from TN on 01/01/2016 – Verified Buyer
Absolutely beautiful book shelf. It is heavy duty and solid wood. You will spend at least 30 minutes putting it together, but it is well worth the cost and labor. We are very pleased. It looks like an $800.00 book shelf.

We purchased two and set them up side-by-side. Love the look.

FYI: Federal Express delivered this to our front door (Our compliments to Federal Express. We are on the 2nd floor of an apartment complex.). Each box was too heavy for one person to carry without help. I opened the box and brought the pieces in individually. To bring one of these boxes inside would require a strong person with a dolly or other form of transport or two strong people. Again, well worth the effort.

Pros: Beautiful; Selving is adjustable; Delivery free/included in cost of Book Shelf
Cons: Transport weight

Love our two matching bookcases! from Palm Coast, FL on 11/24/2015 – Verified Buyer
Love our two matching bookcases! Our two new Harbor View bookcases go beautifully with the Harbor View credenza we already own. Together the three make a lovely wall unit. Although assembly can always be a tad challenging, the illustrated directions were very clear. The second bookcase only took a little over an hour to assemble. There was one missing piece of hardware from bookcase number one and a quick phone call to a helpful service person was all it took to send me the missing piece. We are very satisfied with our purchase.

Best assembly-required furniture I've ever assembled from Brookfield, CT on 01/11/2016 – Verified Buyer
This bookcase is well designed, solid as a rock, and very attractive. When assembled, virtually all hardware is hidden from view. Assembly instructions were clear and easy to follow. Would have given it another star except for a few minor issues: 1. two of the front moldings came up a hair shy of fitting flush with the top (I am likely to be the only one to ever notice this.), 2. fastening the front moldings, according to instructions, requires some elementary contortionist skills or the ability to use a screwdriver without being able to see the screw (manageable, but a bit awkward), and 3. one of the shelf pins was cut a bit too short. As I said, these are minor issues. The piece looks great.

Pros: Good price. Solid. Attractive.
Cons: Minor assembly challenges.

Great bookcase! from Lake Forest, CA on 02/03/2015 – Verified Buyer
I purchased two of these and the piece with doors to make a wall of bookcases. They are more of a light beige peachy color, but the quality is very good. My husband loved the amusing directions telling him to take a break. We have the muddle oiece set forward a bit since on carpet and not easy to get them perfectly lined up, and this makes them look like built ins. People compliment them a lot. Sauder has really improved their furniture. In the future, I would like to add another piece at the backs since a little thin and we made a small depression in one with a finger.
