Review: Bookcase from CSN
Recently I had the privilege of holding a contest for an office chair from CSN (It's still going on actually until Sept 20th, if you haven't entered yet) with the opportunity to review a bookcase. Jason from CSN was a delight to work with. CSN is devoted to customer service and satisfaction. Shipping is free right to your door.
Since the space I have is between a bureau and the t.v. in my bedroom, I needed a bookcase that is tall,narrow and holds a lot of books. The 5 shelf Ameriwood SKU # AR 1074 fit the bill perfectly. Once I was notified that the item was shipped, it didn't take long at all to get here. Hubby helped me put it together and it took just about an hour. The instruction sheet was very clear and all the pieces were easily identifiable from the pictures. The most time consuming part was nailing the back on with 39 little nails. Luckily, all thumbs are still intact! It just fits in the spot and when full of my books, it hold 115 books. You might have some smaller or larger books but that is what is on the shelves now. If I wanted to, I could double store paperbacks as the shelves are a generous 9.5 inches. Overall, the book case is 68" high and 30" wide. Three of the shelves are adjustable. I think it looks great in its new home and no more piles of books here, there and everywhere as our other bookcases are filled to capacity. This is not a fancy shmancy bookcase but that is not what I was looking for. I wanted utilitarian and that is exactly what I got. I'm very happy with my new bookcase. If you haven't been to CSN's website yet, you might want to take a look. CSN has many products: bookcases, file cabinets, chairs, baby furniture, decor and much, much more in varied sizes and finishes ranging from economical to pricey. Lots of choices and a great company. Thank you Jason and CSN for this wonderful opportunity.
