Takes up little space to make the most out of an area.
The quality of the bookcase was excellent. It was relatively easy to assemble and is sturdy. However, I ordered espresso which in the pictures appeared to be dark cherry not black. I was disappointed with the color because I didn’t want a black bookcase. I kept it because of the hassle of returning a heavy bulky item but recommend that the pictures of the expresso bookcase be redone as they are not accurate.
I've bought many bookcases from Target, and this is by far my favorite. It looks fantastic, it's a great size and it's sturdier than other Target bookcases. I had a small issue with the one I initially received, but I called the customer service number on the instruction booklet and they replaced the part in question for free immediately. My only complaint is how difficult it is to put together. The back panel should be wider - it barely fits over the back side of the shelves, and the instructions tell you to attach half of it before you check the other side. It's easy to attach half, then realize that the other side has shifted and now you can't secure it. Get a second person to help if you can, and only screw in one or two screws, then check the other side and make sure there's still room to attach it. Tape it down with painter's tape to make sure it doesn't move. It also says you only need a screwdriver, but I'd recommend using a drill for the screws in the back panel.
Especially if you can get these shelves on sale, they are such a deal. I have four of them now and intend to buy more to house my library, which is up on the attic floor, so these 3 shelf ones sit nicely under the eaves (I also have two of the taller, 5 shelf ones that I also love). They have solid wood edges to the shelves and sides, which means they are very sturdy and the shelves won't sag like plain particle board, even if you pack them full. They are very easy to assemble if you follow the instructions exactly (even the hardware is packaged individually and numbered by each step of assembly). The other great thing is that they line up flush next to each other, which makes them look like custom built bookcases. The crown molding looks lovely and the feet are nice for vacuuming or sweeping under the shelves. They aren't cheap, but they look more expensive than they are and are more affordable than solid wood.
