I have never purchased furniture online, but Target did not sell this in stores. A end piece was damaged. [...]. If you ever opened a box you know you would never get it re-packaged to send back. I called the manufacture ...
Perfect for the spot we needed to fill. Good quality for assemble yourself furniture. Nice finish. If you don't like the price in the store, look online. If you don't like that price, wait, it may go on sale. Use Target card for 5% off and free shipping. Very fast shipping. 5 days?
I got this shelf for my kids' books in their room. It's beautiful and a really nice quality. It seems really durable and I think it will last a long time, even in a toddlers' room with lots of abuse haha
I got the Carson bookshelf in "espresso," having several other items from Target in the same color. I'm not sure if I got a dud, but this bookshelf is very obviously two different wood colors. The back and sides are a reddish, cardboard-y material (the usual material for the backs of flat-pack bookcases), and the trim and top are espresso colored and quite nice looking. Unfortunately, the look is ruined because they are such different colors. I ended up tucking the book
case behind a chair in a corner with less light in hope that it would be less noticeable.
The bookcase itself was more or less easy to put together; the instructions were a bit vague, but I managed nonetheless. The top was a pain to get to lie flat without any gaps, and the cam lock screws cracked the fake wood a bit, as usual for this type of furniture.
The size is excellent if you are looking for a deep bookcase (for instance, if you need to store a bunch of board games), and honestly that is the only reason I'm not returning this fugly piece of furniture.
Bought this for my Mom who is pleased enough with it; but, she didn't have to put it together. While my husband and I were assembling it, we found the materials to be rather flimsy. We are hoping all the stuff my Mom wants to put into it will hold.
I don't recommend you buy this to hold anything heavy.
The end tables must have been from a better company, because all their parts seem heavier duty.
I BROUGHT THIS ITEM X 2 PLUS THE HORIZONTAL TV/BOOKCASE...EXCELLENT ITEMS...THEY ARE VERY STYLISH & I LOVE THE DARK COLOUR...TO BE HONEST I NEVER PUT THEM TOGETHER SO I CAN'T SAY HOW HARD OR EASY IT WAS BUT I CAN SAY THEY ARE VERY STURDY...NO WOBBLING !!!
SUGGESTION: USE AN ELECTRONIC SCREWDRIVER lol
