I'm a 62 female. The box was very heavy but I took a few pieces from the box at a time. I used the instructions from the company website which were much clearer for me. All the holes aligned perfectly and was easy to put together. I did use a 2nd person to put the second side on, otherwise it would have been frustrating to align. I am using it as a shoe rack in my closet to have easy access to each item. My boots are stacked on the top shelf.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Rich Looking, Sturdy, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
I own a small store and was looking for a bookcase to hold various items. After much searching based on color,durability and price I bought 2 of these bookcases. To my pleasant surprise these are better than I expected. I read the reviews both here and other places and did not find any problems putting them together(eg-mismatched holes etc). Yes it takes about an hour for the first one and 30mins the second one and if you use a cordless screwdriver-much faster. They are sturdy,make a beautiful presentation to hold anything not just books. The 'X' bracing on the sides give it a much more 'restoration' look without adding extra dollars and there are back bars so items can't slide once they hit the back. For the $130 spent on each one well worth the price especially compared to ones twice the price. It is made of mdf w/veneer so caution should be observed for scratching etc but can be fixed w/ Old English dark scratch cover.
This is a very attractive bookcase: good quality wood, attractive finish, sturdy and well-designed. The color complements the other wood tones in the room. Their simple style works with modern and traditional furniture and has made my studio look more professional and refined. I'm considering getting matching pieces to house all my art supplies. I bought 2 because of the excellent price. My son assembled them both in about 2 hours. As I remember, the delivery was very prompt.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Vibrant Color, Rich Looking, High Quality of Material, Sturdy, Looks Great, Perfect Size, Well Made, Nice Design
For the price, the unit is quite beautiful and seems well enough built that it will last many years. For me, the size is great. Shelves are nicely spaced for larger books; this also provides an openness feeling - I try to mix decor along with the books so the taller shelves don't look cramped.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
I bought five of the five shelf bookcases and two of the two shelf ones for a new office I was moving into that wasn't all that big. These bookcases give a really substantial look to the space but their airy design keeps my office from feeling cramped and claustophobic. Everyone who sees them comments on how beautiful these are.
Although the shelves aren't movable, they accommodated very well my large books, and my smaller ones.
I gave these bookcases four stars instead of five (even though I gave five stars to appearance, comfort, quality, and value) only because the assembly was a bear. In fact, I couldn't manage it myself and had to have someone else put the bookcases together.
Got this on sale at Home Depot. It was a great deal. I read some reviews that mentioned a part was missing from the packaging, but I went ahead and bought it. I had the entire thing assembled and just about ready to stand up. Went to put on the 4th "foot" annnd... it was missing. The piece was not lost, as I was assembling the unit in an otherwise empty room. So I just took off the other 3 feet and stood it up. No biggie really. Thing looks great and I want another one (with all the parts of course).
I was very pleased at how sturdy and attractive these shelves are. They are very versatile, books and or china pieces. The only thing that I was not pleased with is that there were numerous chips and gouges found when packing was removed. Still I would buy them again.
Pros: Rich Looking, Sturdy, Looks Great, Perfect Size, Good Size & Weight, Functional, Nice Design, nice wood color
Cons: Easily Damaged, shipping/packing damage, took a long time to assemble, cost more in ohio than in alabama
Attractive; solid; lots of space for books and other items; one person put it together without difficulty. Slight scratches on edges but hard to see and each order may not have scratches. Great for the price.
Pros: Sturdy, Good Size & Weight, Functional, Nice Design
Cons: slight imperfections on edges but hard to notice
I ended up buying the desk, chair, bookstand, and the computer stand. I'm happy with all the pieces I bought and they look great. The desk & chair assembles easily and quickly. The computer stand and Bookcase, takes a little more time, a little more frustration, but I was able to complete by myself. I would suggest using a standard screwdriver versus the in-packaged tool in will go 20x faster and DO NOT use a cordless screwdriver, as it will strip the top of the screw. But they give you more parts than you'll need.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Rich Looking, Sturdy, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
Cons: suggest using a standard screwdriver

Review 11 for Brexley Chestnut 5-Shelf Bookcase
Home Improvement Profile:Other
good solid bookcases with a handsome finish but some damages on all
nice bookcases for the price. Very solid, will hold all your books. I like the top shelf for beauty and utility -- can be used as a sixth shelf. good value for the price.
The downside: each and every bookcase -- and I purchased 13! --- had flaws of one kind or another, nicks and scratches in the wood finish being the most common. In others, the top shelf didn't quite fit as snugly as they should. However, none of the problems were big enough for me to want to go through the hassle of returning them. In the end, they look fine.
Assembly was a pain and a half, with lots of parts. But understandable given the solidity of the piece.
We are very happy with the book shelves we ordered. We bought two but they are larger than we thought so we are only using one in the office. It was relatively easy to put together and the construction is of very high quality.
Pros: Excellent Quality, High Quality of Material, Sturdy, Looks Great, Functional, Nice Design

Review 15 for Brexley Chestnut 5-Shelf Bookcase
from Cedar City, UT, USA
Age Range:65 or over

Very happy with this product. The picture available when ordering does not do it justice. They look great!!!
Love these shelves. They were darker than the picture, which is great. They look much more expensive than they are. Ordered three shelf units; after assembling the first one, the others were a snap to assemble. One person assembly was fine. Purchasing online was easy; measurements exact; and, home delivery made it the process great!
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Excellent Quality, Looks Great, Functional, Well Made
Keeping in mind this shelf is not expensive to start, it does look good from afar BUT up close you'll notice it's wood blems. This on top of its poor construction and two missing parts when initially shipped led us to determine they be returned.
Pros: Looks Great, Nice Design
Cons: Wobbles, Not Sturdy, Flimsy Quality, Appearance
Really like this Brexley collection. I have two desks, a tall bookcase, two short bookcases and two file cabinets. Some pieces took a little more time than others to put together, but all were doable in an evening. I only had two pieces with any damage, and the 800 # took me to a super nice agent that got the two pieces out to me in a week. I would definitely recommend this set over other put together office pieces from other companies. Great value, too!!!
Pros: Vibrant Color, Rich Looking, Excellent Quality, Sturdy, Looks Great, Good Size & Weight, Functional, Well Made, Nice Design
Product arrived quickly with no shipping charges. We had seen it at local Home Depots, but by the time we went to purchase it all the local stores were sold out. We found it online. Product was easy to put together - the instructions were easy to follow and all parts were there. The unit had some minor scratches from shipping.
really like the shelf. looks good...nice finish and color. like a review i read before I bought it said, the edges on a couple of the shelves broke off in a couple of places.(half inch pieces) I just used a brown sharpie and colored it. looks fine.
