You are supposed to receive parts more than enough so you will likely to have everything you need to begin with.
this engineered wood material is sturdy but not as strong, if you hammered a nail on close to the edge, it will easily make a crack on surface. so make sure you are hammering the right spot.
We are using this for shoe storage. living in apartment which has small entrance and storage, this storage tower fits in entrance door area perfectly. I love that you can place shelves anywhere you want, other cheap bookshelf don't have that option. we could tilt the shelf and put all the small-big shoes in there without shoes falling off.
Shipping-fast, we paid for shipping which made this product a bit expensive in the end but it's okay. anyways, edges of this product was totally secured by cardoard, we had no broken parts. no missing parts, no broken material, easy assembly made me a happy buyer!
We have an old house with original flooring that makes our floors unlevel. We can't afford built ins or big decorative and expensive book shelves, but wanted to upgrade from our mismatched towers. Our collection had also grown and were being stored partially in boxes.
We have a 4 year old, so before my husband put the first together, I thought it would be a tipping hazard. I was pleasantly surprised. The shelves were shallow so as not to take up too much space, weren't too high and include wall mount brackets for safety. With the DVDs filling the shelves, you cannot see the cardboard backing and the entire unit is very sturdy despits the slimness. We placed two side by side and they look simple, but chic. There is even enough room to put some decorative accents on top.
Ordered this media cabinet from Target.com. Very pleased with shipping. Arrived promptly and securely by UPS. Target emailed with progress of shipment. Great service.
Altho most would use this for media storage, I bought it to display wood-mounted rubber stamps in my craft room. Its shallow shelves are just right. Sits on top of my stamping desk and looks like a hutch. Very sturdy. Holding more than 200 stamps. It's PERFECT!
Easy assembly in less than 30 minutes. Comes with a bracket to attach to the wall if wanted.
One note- it's really dark cherry, more of a walnut shade. Additional note-Walmart carries the same piece but just raised the price to 10 bucks more!! This was a great value. I would recommend to anyone. The shelves are adjustable and it's a very nice height for books on the bottom, DVDs, CDs, VHS, or for people like me....a nice addition to my craft room furniture.
When I received the 2 boxes this product was shipped in, I dreaded having to spend a long time constructing it. But it went together very easily and took less than an hour. It ships with many adjustable shelves and plenty of shelf pins. Looks good, too!
10/31/2012. Purchased two. Excellent design and color. Holds the quantity stated. Already assembled and doubled packed so no damage at all. You only put the pegs in the holes and slide the shelves in. Suggest you get two if you can. I have one for CDs and one for DVDs. Thank you Target for the quick delivery...one week.
Remember folks...you get what you pay for. When you have to assemble products sometimes parts are missing/damaged/or don't fit. Do yourself a favor and eliminate the stress. Purchase the Mission style and be stress-free.
We bought this item last fall and it was one my favorite purchases! The item comes assembled, minus the shelves, which were easy to put in. It is top quality and a very sturdy piece of furniture, unlike most dvd stands that are out there. We might have to get another with how many movies we own! This would be my first choice again!
Nice storage cabinet for DVD's, CD's, etc. Came assembled in box (only had to place shelves according to preferred height). Color matched other "expresso" colored bookselves and desk we had bought from Target as well. Please note: when opening the doors, you need approx 8" space at the sides of the cabinet for the door to swing open to reach a 90 degree angle. This accounts for the width of the front doors that hold CD's, DVD's.
