Review on Vintage Industrial Double Wide Bookcase With 5 Large Shelves - Perfect For Home Decor And Office Displays by Roosevelt Weaver

Revainrating 4 out of 5

Great bookshelf and especially at this price

Update:I'm looking for shelves once again (for another room) and thought I'd pop in here and add a quick update now that I've had this shelf for 3 years. I appreciate it even more now, after having looked at a bunch more! What I appreciate now is how thick the shelves are, and how overall sturdy the entire bookcase is. Now that it's totally covered with books, you really can't tell that it's a "lower end" shelf. The shelves have a textured feel to it making it seem more like actual wood. I have so many books on it including hardcovers and the shelf is holding up with no problem.Original:I am very happy with this bookshelf. I spent a lot of time reading reviews of various shelves on several sites, and was nervous about the small number of convincingly negative reviews on these types of shelves at this price point - that they are and look like imitation wood covered with shelf-lining. At the same time, I can’t afford a higher quality shelf at this time and my books have been littering my floor forever. After a lot of research I settled on this one and held my breath. To my relief, it looks great. It looks elegant and is sturdy. There is one shelf where there is some unevenness in a small limited spot which reveals a bit of that "lining cover look” but if you get that you can use it for the bottom shelf and flip it around so that the flaw faces the wall. It doesn’t look like an $800 book shelf but it doesn’t look cheap either. For this price point I think it’s a great purchase.Assembly-wise it was straightforward. My young teenager put this together and I finished it off, nailing the last 4 shelves. It’s easy to put together, just a little time consuming.4 stars due to the flaw I mentioned above and a small dent that doesn’t impact my overall enjoyment of the shelf.
