Nice solid shelf

Assembly was easy. Looks like a very expensive piece. Only gave 4 stars because there was a very large safety warning sticker permanently affixed in a very prominent place on the bottom shelf. We painted it to match our decor.see moreof the reviewer's review

These bookshelves look great (real wood, not pressed board) and are very sturdy. I am really impressed with the quality. I only gave them four stars because Target does put a nearly impossible to remove warning sticker in a visible place on the bottom shelf (I covered it with a basket)- but if you h...see moreof the reviewer's review

This is a solid, heavy piece of furniture. Unfortunately, the color is not as it appears online. We thought it would a medium to dark cherry color based on the pictures, but it is actually a dark espresso brown, and the wood grain really doesn't show like it does in the online photo. The finish remi...see moreof the reviewer's review

Assembly trouble

cgwestlake 1 year ago
I like this bookcase and it fits well in our entry way and matches our other Parson bookcases. It was difficult to put together (needs two people). I was disappointed when one of the screw anchors inside the legs came out. I could have returned it but really wanted to keep it since it matched the ot...see moreof the reviewer's review

I don't know how this will turn out. I received the unassembled piece. And a bag of hardware. NO instructions. I expect I can figure it out but who sends unassembled furniture with no kind of instructions at all???see moreof the reviewer's review

I was so excited to get this, as I needed a table to go behind the couch as well as some extra book shelves. Assembly was nearly complete when half of the little screw socket things embedded in the shelf's legs popped out. I suppose it could have been cobbled back together, but I have neither the ex...see moreof the reviewer's review

Unfortunately, this shelf doesn't look anything like the photo. I had to return it. I was encouraged by the fact that it's hardwood, and by the warm tone and wood grain in the images, but in real life this might as well be made of MDF. The surfaces are covered in that horrible purplish mahogany vene...see moreof the reviewer's review

I have ordered a lot of different furniture from Target over the years, but I have never seen them place so many stickers on visible places that DO NOT COME OFF. The furniture I recieved was also dented in multiple places. I am very disappointed in this purchase, and would have returned it if it was...see moreof the reviewer's review
