This is a very cheap bookcase, the item came damaged. I could already tell before opening it, there was a hole in the box that showed part of the bookcase was damaged. Once we opened it we found out the sides of the bookcase are the same particle board as the backing. One of the sides was severly damaged. Now we are stuck taking it to the dump which is such a waste unless we can contact the company for that specific piece to try and fix it. Don't waste your money.

Arrived several days early. Matches my other shelves of the same. Much sturdier than most knockdown shelves, and have survived three moves. Would like to find one with doors on the bottom.

Candace - 23 days ago, Verified purchaser
A friend of mine used these to re-organize her library. She had the dark brown color, but I went with Walnut. They’re a great upgrade from the very old IKEA 9-cube system I had. Assembly took about 45 mins per case, but I took my time with it & it turned out fine. I’m pretty handy, so didn’t have too many issues that weren’t attributed to my paying attention. I recommend 2 people if you’re not super handy or have limited strength. Some people like the open back look, but note that it’ll be a little less sturdy if you don’t put the back on. Using wood glue on the dowels can make it even more solid but you have to be committed & not have any pieces backwards. No undo button when you use wood glue lol

AH - 1 month ago, Verified purchaser
If you decide to get this shelf you have to be okay with if it's delivered incomplete they will not fulfill your order later. I got the shelf and there w were missing boards for the shelves. I contacted them and even made it to the warehouse that makes it and they had said they will send it and give me a call. It's been months and had a baby in that time and chasing them through series of number was out of my hands. Considering when I was promised the piece had me wait pass the return date anyway. So I'm left still missing a piece.

Great aunt - 1 month ago, Verified purchaser
This bookcase is great. We have three others. The only reason I gave 4 stars was the whole delivery process. It was supposed to be delivered three days after I ordered, but it didn’t arrive for four weeks. Even this would have been ok if I could have been able to find out what was going on. A little communication would have made a great difference.

blake - 2 months ago
thought it would be easy to assemble but it took quite a bit of effort. poor quality for price point, had to drill into furniture with my own tools because the back was missing the pre drilled holes. it leans forward far enough to need a wall anchor :/ the sides do not feel sturdy enough to hold 65 lbs per shelf

Overall, a decent bookshelf but a bit wobbly. It was really easy to build but I recommend using a 5/64 drill bit to create holes for the screws for the back panels since there weren't any on mine. Or another user on here suggested nails to hammer in the panels.

The backing is fastened by 45 screws, and only 4 are in pre-drilled holes. Enjoy. The bookcase is also not very sturdy.

I had it almost all the way put together before I realized that on one of the side panels the holes were drilled into the wrong side. I'm not the only one this has happened to either. Now I have to unassemble everything I had already screwed together to return it. So frustrating!

I've had these bookcases in black for years. But one broke in a recent move and I need to replace it. It's been out of stock for a long time. Had this color been discontinued?

I'm not sure if this review would go through or get approved. I love Target and have ordered many items through them without any issue. I ordered this book case the first round, and it arrived damaged. Costumer Service was amazing and was able to re-order again. The 2nd time, instead of getting the book case, I received an outdoor table. That's not what I ordered. Again, customer service helped and went above and beyond. I just wish Target's warehouse would do their job and send the correct item. So, I never received the item to provide a good review.

Kate - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
I ordered 3 of these bookcases. The first case was beautiful and in great condition. The other 2 had a really unfinished look to them and the overall quality was way worse. The sku's were the exact same but we notice that the good bookcase was made in Vietnam and the 2 that were really poor quality were made in China. I was so sad when the other 2 cases didn't match the quality of the first one. Such a shame. My husband also noticed that the instruction packaging wasn't the same.

I absolutely love this book shelf so much! My only regret is not buying a second one while it was still in stock. I completely underestimated how many books I had. The bookshelf does not look cheap at all and is incredibly sturdy.

Love this. It was also super easy to put together and that made it 100 times better! The quality is good, I just recommend them putting nails in the kits for the very back of the shelf because the screws can mess it up if you’re not careful because there wasn’t a hole for every one that was on the back of the cabinet. My other piece of feedback would be the price, it is pricey but again the quality is there.p
