Wendel 5-Shelf Ã¿tagÃ¨re
good looking shelf, a little on the flimsy side
I bought this shelf on sale, it was a great price and looks great in our guest room/office. However, I'm using it for my printer in my office and when it prints that thing shakes all over! It's not a super sturdy bookcase in other words. I actually didn't use the final shelf and just kept it at 4 instead of 5 and that keeps the balance of weight a little lower. I am afraid to anchor it to the wall for fear than when it shakes it might just pull out my drywall. So the shaking is fine but it is not a very strong shelf. Very easy to put together, just follow the (minimal) instructions and you'll be fine.

Cutie, but a great workout!
LOVE this bookshelf--it's the perfect size to organize my home office & stylish enough to still look really cute since my home office is in my bedroom. I loved the first one so much, I purchased a second! The assembly on the first one was MUCH easier than the second. It doesn't require any tools, so that part is a plus, but it definitely takes some muscle to get the pieces to push all the way into the slot. Super easy to assemble, otherwise! And you can assemble it by yourself!
Overall, very satisfied with them--would recommend!

Great Shelving Unit,be patient, no instructions
We recently bought the 5-Shelf Wendel Etagere White shelving unit for our daughters room. Once we got it put together (there are no instructions) and we got her room organized I realized just how wonderful it was. It looks great, holds books and assorted items very well too. Just plan for a little extra time when putting it together. Instructions would have been helpful to say the least.

Not best option
This was purchased for a dorm room. The sales associate warned us that when they assembled it the shelf chipped- sure enough when we assembled it the shelf broke. So, I don't think it's a practical option.
