Coaster Home Furnishings 800259 Casual Bookcase – It’s nice once put together

Beautiful once its all put together as it took a few hours by myself to complete and i highly suggest using an electronic screwdriver power tool as there are 30+ screws. Also the directions as i learned could of been a bit more direct so go slow and deliberate with the process. Just an fyi most of the cam lock screws face to the floor as you assemble as i had to take apart a couple pieces and turn them around to what would be facing the floor when bookshelf is stood up. Also my delivery was prompt and all parts were in perfect condition.

Assembly was easier than expected. Assembly was easier than expected. Just be sure you have your shelf surfaces all facing the same direction. Or some them will have exposed assembly holes that would otherwise be hidden. Discovered that little bit of info after the fact . By the time my teenage daughter put all of her books and other various clutter on the shelves you can’t see the holes. And now her messy clutter actually looks cute and organized. As much as possible anyways.

Great book case / piece of art. This thing is heavy, and when assembled, it feels very sturdy. I bought an ‘l’ bracket from walmart to secure the top-back of the book case to my wall. This prevents the book case from wobbling back and forth (we have cats, so this was a must, since they will likely try to climb on this). I would highly recommend you perform this step. I placed the bracket behind the middle pillar in the top most row (a bit off center of the case). This is a nice spot since it nicely hides the bracket from most angles. Putting the case together took about 2 hours (opening the heavily protected package and inventorying all the parts is time consuming). It wasn’t too difficult, but you must be a good detective, since the pictures are extremely important. If you miss a detail in the picture and make a wrong assumption, you could be doing a ton of re-work.

  • Great Book Case / Piece of Art
  • Beautiful and Great Price!!!
  • Very cool shelf!

It is beautiful, a good weight so no fear of it. It is beautiful, a good weight so no fear of it falling, wasn’t too difficult to put together but it does take a little time. If you take it out of the box and put all the pieces out you can put it together without any problems. It took about 1 1/2 hours to do. I absolutely love it and it looks wonderful in my room. It’s exactly how it appears in the picture and it’s a decent quality.

It was a little difficult to put together but i like puzzles and after a few starts and stops it all came together. I like the look because it is unusual.

It’s nice once put together. It’s nice once put together, but assembly is quite difficult and, unless you’re super focused, you’ll probably have to break it all up once or twice, which can be especially annoying since you’re applying glue to hold the pieces in place. Also, as it was mentioned in many other reviews, it’s dark color with silver lines painted over it. Looks kind of cheap and definitely unnatural but at the end you don’t really see it much once you’re done assembling it. Overall, it’s not a bad shelf for the price regardless.

We purchased one unit, assembled, and decorated it. I then measured the wall, and discovered we could fit two of them and ordered a second one right awayassembly is a bit of a task, but if you read the instructions thoroughly and keep the pieces organized, it’s not too bad. The shelf has a very sturdy and heavy feel to it when assembled- the main edge support pieces are quite thick. The finish is a silver painted grain on the black, but i wasn’t expecting it to look like ‘real’ wood. I mean, where have you ever found oak that’s naturally black?. I anticipated some sort of painted/altered surface, so this was fine by me. These shelves are an absolutely perfect addition to our great room. I couldn’t be more thrilled with the price, quality, and amazing look of this product.

Although pretty fake, this is a cool bookshelf. The ‘grain’ you see in pictures is a pattern in silver on the veneer. But it does look like grain from the front once the whole shelf is put together. I think its kind of ingenious, and we really like it in our apartment. It is a bit wobbly, not within (as in the joints bending), but overall doesn’t have that much front to back support, at least on carpet. So we need to secure it to the wall to protect the knick-knacks we put on it. It went together pretty well. Follow the directions carefully.They can be slightly cryptic since there are no words (sometimes a dotted line shows where pieces will connect in the next step, so you know how to orient a certain piece so that the dowels are towards the correct end.
