Though this bookcase is beautiful, they did a terrible job of staining it!!! I used a two in one stain, polyurethane to make it look the way it should. which took two days to finish plus i had to glue a chipped foot back together as well. Very disappointing for as much as i paid for them to have to work so hard to make them look good. However once i finished them they are exactly what i was looking for, just be prepared to head to the hardware store to finish the piece!
