Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save Your Money and Buy Something Else I ordered this little bookcase as it seemed to be an ideal fit for the space next to my sofa. The unit is nearly impossible to put together and the "instructions" are an example of minimalism at its finest: pictures only. After gamely struggling for over an hour to fit the shelves, sides, backing and cross supports into place using a set of ill-fitting dowels and brass screws, the unit let out a loud screech as it suddenly pitched sideways, siding pieces of the faux wood flying. It is now day three of the assembly attempt. I've applied wood putty and sanded to fix the broken sections and used wood glue to secure the dowels into place. Part of my Saturday will be spent at my local hardware store buying a box of wood screws as plan on securing the bottom, sides and top in place with them. A bit more wood putty to cover the screw heads and a bit of wood stain should do the trick. This bookcase isn't even worth 1/4 what I paid for it, let alone the full price. I'm a very, very disappointed customer.

I wanted the white unit, which looks identical to this, but it measures 36 inches, and the espresso one measures 31.5 inches. Are both of these accurate or is one a mistake? I need to know this before I order.
Thank you,
