    submitted byr watson - 4 years ago
  • A: You will need a hammer and Philips screwdriver to assemble this. It's not difficult. I'd also recommend some wood glue for the wood dowels.

submitted by lexi - 4 years ago
  • A: Hi lexi - Give your home a complete look with this handy bookcase! It isn't designed to be waterproof. We're glad you stopped by! - Gao

Q: Can i strip and re paint or stain a different color

submitted by vashaun - 4 years ago

Q: Can I use it without attaching the anti-tip hardware to the wall?

submitted by avi - 5 years ago
  • A: Hi avi - Make room for a stylish and functional accent in your home with the 3-Shelf Bookcase from Room Essentials. For your safety, and to keep this bookcase secure, we would advise you to utilize the anti-tip anchoring hardware. Thanks for stopping by! - Vanessa

  • A: Yes, definitely. I assembled it and put it in my 2 year old’s bedroom. It is sturdy (currently holding all 140 of his books). I bought the bookcase in part for the anti-tip hardware, but ended up not using it. The option is certainly nice, but you do not have to use it.

Q: What tools do you need to build this book shelf?

submitted by KarenLynn - 5 years ago

Q: I'd also love to know the dimensions of each shelf. Specifically the height. Thanks:)

So I got it for the purpose of the height and I did always intend to buy 2/3 more to connect together but I really thought all my books can fit in one alone for now. Clearly I was wrong lol but I love it so much. Omw to get another.

This was one of the easiest projects to complete. The toughest part is screwing the nails in, but it shows how secure the walls of the bookshelf are. We opted to nail the backing on. That's truly the only flimsy piece, but it's optional. Highly recommend too for the price. Most need-assembled bookshelves are close to $70 elsewhere.

So easy to put together. Included was a nail holder which allows the small nails to be held in place then slides off to finish nailing the backing - ingenious little device! Looks great, sturdy and for a great price.

Super easy to put together, have had for almost a year now and it holds up well! Have books on it as well as a few other decorative items. I’m considering adding a wallpaper to the back to jazz it up a little more too! Definitely worth the price.

I like the bookcase it’s not too bulky. What I didn’t like was the parts are not labeled (the shelves kind of looks the same) and can be confusing initially from a dummy perspective. I just had to stop trying to follow the confusing instructions and put it together from a common sense perspective. It was very easy to assemble. The back part is optional and too tedious with all the small nails if you ask me. It serves no purpose if your book case will be against the wall. Hope this review helps.
