I was skeptical because of some reviews regarding poor quality and poor instructions, but I’m glad I took a chance. The instructions could have been a little bit more clear in some places, but it was still very simple to put together in under an hour by myself. It feels very sturdy, and I’m glad it’s made entirely of thick particle board, even the back (as opposed to cardboard). As with the assembly for any furniture piece, make sure you don’t over tighten any screws, since there’s always a risk of splitting the wood, but that was not an issue for me. I’m quite impressed. I don’t love mid-century modern design, but I do love functional, affordable furniture, and this bookshelf fit the bill!
I was eyeing this up for my midmod bedroom to double as both a bookcase and vanity. Took an hour and a half to two hours to assemble on my own. The hardest part was getting the box from my car to my house since it was so heavy! Assembly was easy and straightforward. A very solid and sturdy piece of furniture. The quality really blew me away! I hope to be able to hang on to this for many years to come!
I had been looking everywhere for a reasonably priced TV stand and decided that a bookcase would do the trick. Looks nice once put together and pretty sturdy. However, I wouldn't give this 5 stars due to the cheap quality of the wood veneer- I used a little water to remove the barcode stickers on the wood and the finish peeled off very easily. Would recommend if you are looking for a modern piece and not super concerned about the quality of the material.
I will admit I was skeptical about buying another target furniture item, as I’ve had bad experiences in the past. I was so pleasantly surprised with the quality! It was easy to put together, and I was able to do it by myself in about an hour! It has a really great look to it, and we are using it as a bookshelf in my child’s room, and it’s incredibly sturdy! I love that the back is NOT made of cardboard like most of their furniture pieces. The only thing I’m not huge on (but hasn’t effected the functionality) is the legs seem to be a cheap plastic. But it’s holding up great and is very functional in many different settings. I could move this piece from room to room and find different uses for it with no problem! Overall one of the best purchases I’ve made at Target!
I purchased this bookshelf two weeks ago. My intent is to use it as a tv and media stand. It took about two hrs to assemble. I’ll admit the instructions could have been a little better. The wood on the back of the shelf isn’t 100 percent even. The holes are slightly off. I’d recommend having a friend help you to stand it up after putting on the legs. I did it myself and the weight of the bookshelf cracked the leg that I was using to stand it up on. I had to immediately order a replacement leg through the website. The process was tedious, but they shipped the leg the next morning and I only had to wait a couple days to receive it. I like the way the book shelf looks. Overall I am happy with my purchase.
