Monarch 72-in x 32-in x 12-in White Metal Bookcase is rated

Designed for structural engineers
Lovely piece of decor but there are no written instructions. just pictures. My husband and I spent at least six-hours putting together and then taking apart due to the lack of written direction. Not everyone is good at deciphering small schematics so unless you are degreed in engineering I would say go for something else. On a positive note however, the glass shelves really are tempered. Definitely better tempered than I after dealing with this bookcase.

Worked great! Good customer support.
Yes, it is a bit of work to put together all the parts, but the picture instructions were clear and the parts are clearly labeled. One learns to catch the details for how each piece is oriented, but it was sort of fun. It is well built. One glass shelf came broken, but calling the Monarch customer support was easy and they shipped a free replacement quickly with no hassle. I would recommend it to anyone who is the least bit handy.

Sorry I bought this
We purchased this online to use as an etagere for towels in the bathroom. When I put the level on it I couldn't believe it was telling me it was out 3/4", that is until I stool off to the side and saw how much it was leaning over the bottom part. Couldn't do anything about it as the holes for the bolts are pre-drilled, so couldn't adjust the top part at all. Unfortunately we discovered this when we were all finished. Had I seen this in the store I wouldn't have bought it.

Great display piece!
Purchased two of these for our basement for our children’s toy storage.
The instructions were easy to follow! The “secret” to assembling ANY product like this is DO NOT TIGHTEN anything until you have fully assembled.
Then it will be square and level.
I wish there were different colours available... but I am going to buy another and paint it.
