Quick delivery, have got several Corona bits of furniture now. This bookcase matches the rest very well, was very easy to construct and looks great. Good price compaired to shop prices.

I brought this 3 shelf corona distressed pine bookcase to go with the 2 shelf of the same description. It is a darker colour and the wood for the shelves is inferior - just small sections of wood glued together to make the veneer on both sides. The 2 shelf corona bookcase in the same style has solid, one piece, wooden shelves and it very much better quality over all. I am disappointed, but after 3 hours assembling it, I did not want to have to return it! The instructions are very sparse and we made mistakes putting together both the short and medium bookcases. Better labelling of front and back of parts in the diagrams would've helped us to avoid putting it together incorrectly. Once things are screwed in place you cannot rescrew them as the wood has been compromised and new screws will not hold. A shame all round. Take a very long time assembling this - you'll have to guess a lot of instructions!

Chose this product for a) the price and b) the design and let's be clear, the finished product does look lovely and is very spacious. It does not look like a flat pack piece of furniture and really adds character to the living room.

HOWEVER after having constructed this, I am pretty certain that I won't be needing to go to the gym/do any of those puzzles that keep your brain active. This was the single most labour-intensive design I have ever put up and took almost 2 hours with two of us doing it. There are about 30 screws and 20 dowels, most of which are inevitably not-quite-the-right-size-for-the-hole. Added to which, those little black circles on the four corners - how on earth are they meant to attach? I have no idea, but we broke two in the process, thank modern technology for the gorilla glue cure!

Oh.... and when it arrived, the box was broken and a couple of pieces had fallen out on the foor. Of course, to give them credit there was a symbol saying 'is this box damaged? call this number before opening.' however, we (luckily) seemed to have all the pieces too. Ironically, it would seem, opening the box voids warranty for broken boxes, even though our box WAS open, hence the need to call the number.

Aside from the dodgy instructions, massive workout and the poor quality of delivery service, this piece is very nice and does look very smart.

They were perfect for what I wanted them for. I was looking for relatively inexpensive shelving that didn't look cheap and that's what I got. They were easy to put and I'm delighted with them.

For the most part the self assembly was OK, except the lower front panel behind the wavy one: this had three holes drilled into it and I fixed it upside down - the instructions were so faintly printed that I didn't see the holes marked on it. Rectified by drilling holes in the correct places after I had glued and screwed together! You will need some wood glue for the dowels, and a mallet for knocking pieces of wood home - a hammer will not do as it will mark the timber, and can also cause cracking.

Small chip out of the wood on the lower wavy panel, which had obviously been there from the beginning, as someone had attempted to fill it before packing. One of the black decorative discs sheared from it's spike when I malletted it home: this is poor welding: I glued the disc in place with a strong general purpose glue: all the others were fine.

At least this has turned out to be a strong bookcase, fit for purpose and I don't expect the shelves to bend under the weight of the tomes.

It's a great looking product! The only reason for giving it 4 stars is the unclear instructions! It's so annoying to struggle with the drawings in the instructions, this is the same problem with all Corona products! Please make those instructions easy to understand, with measurements for each piece!

Only 3 stars as some of the fittings were missing and it took an eternity to get some posted also when I could finally assemble one of the pre drilled holes was not in the correct position (only 2-3mm out but caused some problems with the assembly).
