    Great value for the price.Assembly was simple and the shelf is very sturdy.

    Study, high-quality pieceEasy to assemble. Sturdy. The color is lighter compared to the photo, kind of light oak, thus prettier compared to the product photo

    It takes two people to assemble this product, but I do highly recommend this shelving.I like these shelves. Sturdy pine and low cost. It was a good buy. Please note though that I recommend two people to assemble this item. I was one person trying to get this assembled and boy, did I have a hard time. Putting this together was like building a house of cards. One has to first, get the bottom board out and then put the three dividers on it. They are only held in place by dowels. Then, you have to put the middle board on top of the three dividers and repeat with three more dividers and finally the top board. Again the shelving, at this stage, is only held together by dowels and gravity. As one can imagine, as with a house of cards it collapsed at the slightest bump. Aggravating, to say the least. A second person would have been helpful to keep the shelves collapsing until I got the screws in place. Still very nice shelves for the price. Sturdy (once secured with the screws).

    I should’ve just gone to IkeaOn the bright side: The cabinet came with all its parts, was milled relatively precisely (the holes were where they needed to be), and was, as advertised, pine. Or some kind of pine-ish fabricated wood–but not, say, particleboard with pine veneer. And once together, it seems to be stable and as attractive as in the photo.Now the bad stuff: the design was idiotic. Basically the whole thing snaps together with dowels, with wood screws on the side panels. But putting the pieces together is a nightmare (probably why they say it requires two people).The thing is… it doesn’t have to be this way! They could have simply added more screws and made it quite easy to put together. I don’t know why they didn’t–maybe the hardware is expensive and cut into the margins. Or maybe they didn’t want to spoil the “fine wood” look and feel (hahahaha!) with too many screw-heads.Seriously, it’s a freaking SHELF. Made of pine-ique, or some other faux-real-wood boards. A few extra screws would’ve been fine.It dawned on me about halfway through the two hours (!) it took to assemble the damn thing that I could probably have designed, built, and assembled a better shelf in the same amount of time. Okay, I would have still had to have sanded down the edges, and slapped on a finishing coat… but basically, the whole “snap together” design was just. plain. stupid.If you don’t have the same esthetic sense I do, and have another person to help, you’ll probably find this item perfect, particularly at the price. As I said, it’s stable and attractive.But… I should’ve just gone to Ikea.

    Perfect for infant storage!

    Perfect cube shelfThis shelf was perfect for my sons playroom. It arrived quick and was packaged nicely with no damage. It was actually pretty easy for my husband and I to put together in under an hour following the directions. The wood is nice and sturdy with no chemical odors. I’m so glad I purchased it!

    Decent Product, but Overpriced & Difficult to AssembleFirst, I found it impossible to assemble this product without assistance. Even with 2 adults, assembly was quite frustrating. You almost need 3 sets of hands, as it needs to be held together in multiple places while inserting the screws.Second, the part in the description about it being wall-mountable is a lie. The back is not sufficiently sturdy. I had to take the bottom front board and attach it to the back with a drill and some screws (mine not included) to be able to mount this to wall studs.Third, the wood is fairly low quality (I think it’s real wood and not MDF or fiberboard but appears processed or engineered and not natural) and covered with some sort of sealant that renders painting it very difficult without sanding. I had to seal it with polycrylic to keep the paint from coming off, which was another chore. If you like the “naked” wood look, then that’s not an issue, but given the low quality of the wood you’re probably going to want to paint it.That said, once I finally got it painted, sealed, and up on the wall, it served its intended function well enough. I’d have given 3 stars at least if it hadn’t been so difficuly and unwieldy; also, for the price, the quality should be at least a little better.

    Cabinet for preschool, this was a challenge!Difficult to assemble, you have to juggle a number of loose pieces while assembling the second vertical panel. Use a second person to hold it together. Also, beware the hex screws – they are very difficult to thread in and I’m a big guy with large hands. It may help to soap the threads before inserting. Once together it’s an ok piece, but can tip easily with the huge casters. Also, the screws for the casters are short and the wood is soft, don’t use a power driver on these.

    Super great all aroundI seriously love this shelf! It’s the perfect height for my 14 month old twin boys, they use it to pull up, they stick their heads in the cubbies, and it’s very sturdy. It was beyond easy to put together too, the instructions say two people are needed but I did it alone and didn’t have trouble. The instructions are only pictures, so no words at all so that could be tricky for somebody people, but I think it’s pretty easy to figure out. I would definitely purchase more furniture by amazon basics.

    Does what I expected…Quality level is very low…not ‘rough lumber’ low – but no where near quality. If you wanted to paint this, plan on a whole day of sanding. Assembly was very difficult for 1 person (on flat ground with plenty of room – 2 people would definitely be easier…but still the assembly method required balancing multiple parts and having to align many locations – 3 people would have been easiest…that being said, I did manage alone with some carefully placed clamps and tape). Otherwise it appears to be relatively sturdy for the materials involved…though if this were for ‘kids’ it’s a good bet that the back would eventually be knocked out due to lack of care that children tend to exhibit towards tossing things around.
