June 23 -- bookshelf ordered
June 28th -- bookshelf arrives, so that's pretty fast, considering there was a weekend in there.
June 30th, 8:20 p.m. -- assembly begins.
8:47 assembly done -- only one "hold this for a second", no sounds of frustration or extra tools needed. A screwdriver was listed in the instructions, but we didn't actually use it, only the included Allen wrench. Nice.
It's pretty cute, if I do say so myself. Moderately sturdy -- not pressboard or something, but the shelves are thin. It is a little bit smaller than I expected it to be (even though I measured out its dimensions before). But, all in all, I like it. Would I pay the price listed on the website for it? Hmm... not at this point in my life.
