Q: I'm looking for a bookcase put next to my fireplace that can hold my DVD player and cable box. Does this bookcase have a cutout in the back that would allow the cords to plug into the wall?

submitted by Kimberleylcain - 5 years ago
  • A: The book shelves you inquired about are sturdy and strong. I actually have 10 of this styles of shelves (in various shapes and sizes) around the house. Unfortunately, the shelves do not have a cut out for cords cables. I have two answers/sugestoins to answer your question: 1. I have cables running out of the back of one of my shelves. I did not screw the back panel at all points, creating a gap between to shelf and the back paneling large enough to run the cables through. The gap is not noticeable from the front of the shelf. 2. If you have the tools to do so, you could always cut a whole where you would need the cutout for your cables. The shelves are great and I would recommend purchasing them.

    submitted byMr E - 5 years ago
  • A: Hello Kimberleylcain - Thanks for asking about the Carson 5 Shelf Bookcase. This bookcase does not have a cutout in the back. The backing is a stained thick plywood material. Enjoy your shopping. -Yamell

  • A: No, but it is super easy to do using a holesaw. You attach it to a drill and it will create a round hole.

    submitted byBrenda M - 5 years ago
  • A: I actually left the whole back off the book case. The color of my wall looked really nice as a back drop! You could do the same if you want the dvd player on the lower shelf so you dont see all the cords hanging down.

Q: Would it look weird if you left the cabinet doors off?

submitted by marisaj - 3 years ago
  • A: Hi marisaj - Thanks for your interest in this modern bookcase with doors. The bookcase is intended to be assembled including the doors. We're unable to guarantee performance and quality with the missing pieces. We hope you find the right bookcase for your space. Thanks for stopping by! – Terra

  • A: Hi Marisaj, Thank you for your inquiry regarding the 72" Carson 5 Shelf Bookcase with Doors. We do agree with Target's response, however, we also make this in a version without doors, it is called "72" Carson 5 Shelf Bookcase - Threshold™". Please let us know if you have any other questions.

  • A: Yes, I see the other open bookcase option but the gray version is currently out of stock. Do you know if it will ever be available again? I'm wondering if I should wait on it or not.

Q: Will two bookcases fit flush next to each other?

submitted by hate2shop - 5 years ago
  • A: we bought two in the grey color and put them side by side and they look nice next to each other.

    submitted byholliday143 - 5 years ago
  • A: They will fit flush to one another as best they can. They won't be as professional built in cabinets. But I think you will be satisfied. Be sure to use the safety tab to secure in place! Love the look!

    submitted bydeco156 - 5 years ago
  • A: Yes, mine are side by side. They are on a hard wood floor and there is occasionally a gap between them created from slight shifting. I just push them back together and they are fine. They will not look like built ins because you will see the slight gaps between them.

Q: Is the Rustic color more grey-washed or more of a warm wood color?

submitted by katiew - 6 years ago
  • A: yes, it is grey washed

    submitted byYuye - 6 years ago
  • A: Yes, it is more grey washed.

    submitted byShar4499 - 6 years ago
  • A: It is more of a warm wood color, very dark brown almost black. It is a very nice addition to my son's bedroom and looks great as his book/storage shelf.

    submitted byAmy - 6 years ago

Q: Is it possible to get an additional shelf? I have thin things to go on the upper portion but don't want to sacrifice the shelf inside the lower cabinet. Please tell me there is a way to order an extra shelf and pins!

submitted by Kelly - 3 years ago
  • A: I'm also looking to add an extra shelf as the items I have are quite short and I'd like to take advantage of the space I have.

    submitted byHayle - 3 years ago
  • A: Hi Kelly - I'm glad you're checking. For the stability of this bookcase, it's best to follow the assembly instructions. It's intended to be enjoyed as it appears. Hope that helps. – Terra

Q: I ordered this and I am picking it up at my local Target. How big is the box that it comes in? I am concerned it will not fit in my Ford Escape (small SUV). Thank you!

submitted by Grace - 5 years ago
  • A: I have a VW Beetle and it fit in there from back to passenger side.

    submitted byGladysL - 5 years ago
  • A: Hi Grace - I hope you enjoy your new bookcase. It's a handsome unit for storing and displaying your favorite books. The package dimensions measure 74" L x 16" W x 7.5" H. Thanks for shopping Target! - Philip

Q: what color is expresso it ishard to tell

submitted by Pat - 5 years ago
  • A: Just so you know, in daylight the espresso color has a purple-ish hue. It doesn’t have a very natural tone. We moved them to our basement media room and they look like a dark brown (like espresso coffee) and the purple hue isn’t noticeable.

    submitted byCbottomley - 5 years ago
  • A: Hi Pat - We're seeing the "Espresso" color of this 5 Shelf Bookcase to be a rich brown with an almost dark burgundy undertone. We're hoping this information helps. Thanks for asking a great question. -Michael

Q: Would I be able to fit Up and Up 2" binders on each shelf - just wondering if the shelves are tall enough to be useful in my office. Tia for your help.

submitted by Blecky - 5 years ago
  • A: Hello Blecky - The Carson 5 Shelf Bookcase with Doors will help display your favorite collection pieces. The shelves are adjustable, and when fixed in the middle position they measure 12.9" H x 26.7" W x 12.2" D. The 2" up & up binder measures 11.4" L x 3.66" W x 11.7" D. I hope this helps. Enjoy furniture shopping. - Yamell

  • A: The bottom shelf will hold the binders but the top 2 are smaller.

Q: Is this more of a 'natural' rustic or gray?

submitted by Shewantstoknow18 - 5 years ago
  • A: Hi there - I would be happy to better clarify the color of this beautiful bookcase. The rustic color choice can be described as natural wood with gray undertones. Hope it's what you're looking for! - Jenny

    submitted byJenny - 5 years ago
    Target staff support
  • A: it's defiantly more on the grey side. We have grey furniture and these shelves match nicely.

    submitted byholliday143 - 5 years ago

Q: Is the surface of the Rustic-colored version considered a laminate or veneer? (I'm looking into painting options and need to know which construction it is.) Thanks.

submitted by Cms830 - 5 years ago
  • A: Hi m19 - That's a great question! This Carson bookcase is made up of engineered wood which is stained. Thanks for stopping by! - Terra

    submitted byTerra - 5 years ago
    Target staff support
  • A: I'm pretty sure it's a laminate and is a printed surface made to look like real wood. Hope this helps.

kbartontx - 15 days ago
This thing was difficult and time consuming to put together, and the quality is not the best. However for something that looks nice enough and for light use at an inexpensive price this really does the trick. I needed something that would improve the look and organization of my tiny laundry room without costing a fortune, and I absolutely love how it turned out so no complaints there. Some other reviews mention damage to the pieces when delivered, for me there was only one piece that had a hairline crack and it was not visible...I will say that as you are assembling this it is rather fragile/not the best quality and I would just be careful with handling and making assembly mistakes to prevent cracking. Overall, I do really like the design/style of this affordable bookcase, it has a nice look and size to it that will likely complement any space.

Very happy with service and quality of product. product arrived a day earlier than expected. I was nervous at first as the box was close to destroyed when it arrived with a large dent and rip. I was sure the cabinet would be damaged and I'd have to send it back, with the exception of a small section of the back panel it was perfect condition. easy to assemble. fits all the kids board games in the cabinets out of site and has plenty of shelf space for me.

I wanted to love this but it did not work in the living room space I bought it for. It is VERY grey. In the picture I thought it would have more brown and creamy tones but it didn’t at all. Unfortunately will be returning. I love the style but none of the other colors will work for me personally.

I was hesitant to order after reading some reviews but I’m so glad I did. I ordered 2 of these in black to put up next to each other in my dining room. Shipping was fast. Instructions were simple to follow and assembling them was very easy. I would recommend a drill to save time for putting on the back piece. They look great!

The door was damaged, and the magnet piece was broken. I immediately called and was told they would send replacement parts. I continued to but this together. I ordered two. It took a couple hours to put together. A week later I received an email stating they could not send parts. I was told I have to return to the store to start a refund or an exchange. I will be returning the product fully assembled and will not buy another piece of furniture from this manufacturer.

Kelley - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
Mine had several damaged spots. Things that weren’t noticed until after I already built it. (Tears in spots on the backing, which are visible once complete) Target’s solution was to refund it as they didn’t have any more in stock to replace it. But I would have had to take it all apart and drag back into the store. I opted to keep it reluctantly. They didn’t even have spare parts or offer me a discount. So now I spent full price on a damaged bookshelf. At least it looks nice!

Kirby - 4 months ago, Verified purchaser
-Package arrived beat up. All styrofoam inside was a mess. Imagine taking out parts when building it and inhaling all the bits and pieces of the styrofoam and spread it all over your room. -Material is very cheap and flimsy. We wanted to return it but I hoped it would feel a little sturdier after being built but no. Besides I only had 5 days of return window from delivery. Buyers beware. Open your box immediately and check for cracked or broken parts. - front doors weren’t aligned after building it. Predrilled holes for the hinges were not perfect for the door to align. I have to force to close them. -It looks good after building it but it’s really cheap. I had to put heavy stuff in the bottom to secure it. Not worth even with the sale price I got it for. I’d return it if u could.

Naptime - 5 months ago, Verified purchaser
I got this last week, and it was super easy to put together. It looks great and seems sturdy. There were some markings against the grain of the “wood” that seem like a packing quality control issue, but the shelf still looks fine. I like the cabinet at the bottom and didn’t have any issues squaring up the cabinet to get the doors even. I would buy it again if I need another shelf.

The quality of this product is horrible. I tried to reach out to customer service the only solution is to return it and I have already put it together. They could send replacement parts for some or a credit but they didn't. I will have to try to fix myself but I guess I won't by furniture from Target again. Don't but this item unless it's on clearance and you aren't expecting quality.

I ordered in white, was pretty easy to put it together and the shelves themselves are sturdy. However, the doors on the bottom come preassembled and mine were offset. This made the entire bookshelf look a little crooked.
