Pros

This is a pretty bookcase. Some customers who write reviews for the matching 5 shelf bookcase said that they purchased one of these and two of the 5-shelf cases to line up together against the wall. These bookcases are really heavy and sturdy pieces. It takes about an hour for each case to be assembled, but it was easy enough. The shelves are very deep with really thick, heavy boards to support whatever it is you want to display in them. We don’t expect these shelves to bow as some tend to do with the weight of many books and decorations. Be aware though, that the picture shows the cases as more white than they actually are. They are more of an off-white, creamy color. They are more true to the “antiqued” color they are described to be. In short, they are sturdy, cream colored and slightly distressed stands that are very attractive pieces of furniture.

Other customers who were won over by Wayfair had the following things to say.

Having never ordered anything from Wayfair, one buyer read all of the reviews on this shelf. They ordered with confidence that it would fit into their space and be the shelf they were looking for to store things in a craft room. It is true that the color is slightly “off” in the photo on the computer screen. It is a lovely shade of cream with a bit of a distressed finish. The assembly is quite doable with the help of a helper and the very well written instructions. We would recommend a power screwdriver for assembly. You can have the piece unpacked, assembled, and in place in about an hour. The packing is superior! The instructions are well-written and illustrated and the hardware is more than adequate with a few pieces to spare. For the price, you could not be happier. This is a lovely shelf unit that would have been 2 to 2.5 times the price in a store.

Cons

Other buyers were not as thrilled with this stand and had the following things to say.

One buyer said that their book cabinet arrived via UPS one day late. That was not a problem. However, the packing/shipping box was damaged at both ends, it had gouges in the sides of the cardboard box, and one end of the box was heavily damaged while the opposite end was collapsed like an accordion. The damaged parts were exposed and were visibly protruding from the torn areas inside a wrapping of plastic. Several fine scratches existed as a result of the pieces shifting inside the damaged cardboard box. Even though the damage to the parts was small (mostly chipped ends), it takes away from the look of its appearance. Did they want a replacement? No. Were they satisfied once it is assembled? Most likely. Can the packaging and handling be improved? Absolutely! Their assessment of the product is that it was mostly the inadequate and poorly protected delivery of the item that ruined things for them.

Conclusion

Overall, this is the perfect size for most standard living rooms. In the Pinellas Standard Bookcase, you will get great height, length, and width for your stand. The particular colors available might seem to be more on the earthy side rather than the lively side of things. The item itself is sturdy and not very cheap-looking. Many people only gave it 4 stars because Wayfair sent an early delivery date but then changed it on the day it was supposed to arrive for some people. Overall it is a great purchase for the size, features, price, and other options that it provides you with. If what you want is a versatile stand that can be used in a number of settings and comes with great customer service as well as numerous color options and is not priced too highly and is delivered quickly, this item is what you should go for. With over 1500 reviews, over a thousand of them positive, you can’t go wrong with the Pinellas Standard Bookcase. Give it a try today and have the functional and sturdy-looking bookcase you need in your home today.
