Comments about Guidecraft Classic White Bookshelf:
We bought this shelf to store my sons toys and books. I have a 'thorough' gene and looked at zillions of bookshelves out there -- we ultimately chose this one because it met the following criteria: 1) looks good (it is in a 'kid corner' of our family room), 2) organizes our son's toys in a way that looks neat but is still easily accessible for our 14mo, and 3) decent price.It was backordered but came earlier than anticipated. [...] Installation is fairly straightforward (hello, hex wrench). The tick is to realize that you need to push in the bolts ALL the way into the pre-drilled holes before inserting the screws.Oh, and be forewarned -- it has a horrible stench when you open the package. Luckily it quickly dissapates. It was fine by the time we were finished assembling the shelf.Overall recommended! Looks great, is sturdy, accomodates a lot, organizes well with the various compartments, and a good value. I would have rated 5 stars if it wasn't slightly damaged upon arrival.
