You get what you pay for and in this case I got exactly what I expected, and I am happy! The other reviews were helpful in setting my expectations, and if you know what you are getting then you should be happy with this piece. It cheap, its not fancy and I would not put it on display but it is perfect as an inexpensive case that was unbelievably easy to assemble. I used it in the kitchen dinning area, so I could move all our cookbooks off of an exterior over-hanging picture window (worried about the weight). Its holding up great!
