Pretty simple to put together. For the back pieces, you definitely need an electric drill, there aren’t any pre drilled holes. I liked how the small parts were bagged by step, that made it so much easier!

Great quality bookshelf which was very easy to assemble by myself. The instructions were easy to follow and I appreciated the hardware being packaged per step but the instructions do start to assume you know what you’re doing so might be difficult for someone who has never assembled furniture. Recommend a power screw driver though because it has 45 screws on the back to hold the backing in place without pre drilled holes.

You can see the majority of the screws. Where are the covers??? Also the back of the book case is quite flimsy. I will be having my step father fix this as it should come.

This is the second one of these bookshelfs I have bought, the first being about 8 years ago - which is still going strong. They hold up really well and are very sturdy, and look beautiful. I wish all of the colors were available more, but I still like the wallnut brown more than I thought I would.

This is such a cute and well built bookcase. We did used our own brackets to mount it to the wall. The ones that come with it I don’t feel are that secure.

The shelf I received had several areas where the wood was cracked in pieces that are meant to hold it together. For now we have glued the pieces but it won’t last long.

This book case was just what I needed to keep all the books & toys organized in the play room I have for my grandkids. It has a crisp & clean appearance. It was easy to assemble with the help of my son. I am so happy that I bought this book case.

LizH - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
I bought one of these before the pandemic and it is fairly solid and even. This one has a different wood grain so , even though it's the same color, it doesn't quite match. It also is hollow sounding when you tap it unlike the solid sound my previous shelf makes. It's also uneven on the floor and rocks a bit. I'm tempted to retun it although it's already put together because I am not confident it can hold what it's sister does. Quality has gone way down in 4 years.

Poor quality

Customer - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
In less than 2 months, the back of the shelf already broke. The particle board the sides are made of, is very cheap. There are no stickers to cover up the holes. The pieces put together by the company, had gaps. I would not recommend this shelf, especially for the price point.

The shelves have a cross-piece lip in front which prevents buckling. Most shelves in this price range are just a single slab which will bend-droop-sway with weight and time. That’s huge for storing books. The top edge is also finished with a bit of trim. The sides are also not flat. This isn’t just a rectangular box. Over two houses and many years… we now have 22 of these bookcases!!! We have them in several rooms, including office, craft, library, bedroom, guest room. I don’t recall ever finding one damaged. Maybe we did, but no memory of any problems returning to Target. Can’t believe we’ve assembled so many of these! And have never had a problem. Always impressed with packaging. Instructions. Extra everything. Maybe recent quality has fallen apart. But we’ve had ours as far back as 15 years to currently, and they’ve all held up!! From our last house, movers loaded these Target cases but suggested we not move the IKEA shelves as survival would be iffy. So we left a wall of shelves behind for our buyers.

beachtime - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
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 - 4 months 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
