I ordered this bookcase 1.5 years ago and it was perfect in color and size. I just ordered and received another because I liked the first on so well. The newest one arrived and I was greatly disappointed because the finish was very different than the older one I have. It is dark charcoal rather than true black and the finish appears duller than the original piece. Unfortunately I ordered the new one for the same room and wall and they don't look nice together. What's more, I don't like the charcoal finish.
Beans suggested that I order another and return the old one.
Since I don't like the new finish that is not an option.
Beware if you order the black finish that you will get a charcoal, not black finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bookguy Perfect solution
We love books but have limited space for bookcases in a new house. Our old bookcases would not fit. We looked at cheap solutions, but wanted to do justice to the cottage style of our new place. We ordered two, in ivory. They were delivered in less than one week, and very well packed. I needed help to get the heavy boxes in the house, but managed to assemble them by myself. They look like they were custom designed for the house.

This tall bookcase is the fourth piece we've bought in the Painted Cottage furniture line. It is well constructed, beautifully styled and was very easy to assemble. We are always impressed with the finish, too. It is smooth and free of defects. And the price is much lower than those of a well known, retail business. We bought the ivory color. We visited the L.L. Bean store in Freeport recently, and saw this bookcase in the new gray color. It did not appeal to us, as it looked much more blue, than gray. The ivory is a great color, but hope L.L. Bean offers the light sage as an option again in this fine group of furniture..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spiked Another successful LLBean purchase
We purchased two tall bookcases to place on either side of a server that displays a ship model in our living room. They hold books as well as "chachkies" that have been looking for a home. They are a good height so that the ship remains as the focal point & the black finish is a good match to the server. When they were delivered one box had a huge hole on one side & the UPS man made sure to show us in case of damage. But the boxes were extremely well-packed so there was no damage at all. Assembly was easy, all the hardware needed (8 screws & a special screw driver) & easy to follow directions were included. The quality & finish are great, just as I expected, like the 2 cottage benches we purchased in the past. The bookcases met all my expectations- as always.

Great cabinet for books display case for small spaces. I own two have also put one in our kitchen for baskets and cookbooks. Fits easily with a florida coastal decor.

The bookcases (3) were a perfect fit for the allocated space. The purchase was based on an online description of the product, which proved to be very accurate, and reflects the quality, as stated. The delivery time was less than a week from the time the order was placed, and the bookcases all arrived without damage.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JuneauHome Poor workmanship
I was disappointed. The board on the left side was cut unevenly so there's a half inch gap between the top of the shelf and about seven inches on the side. The paint was marred; it looked like a mistake that got "fixed", and there was not enough paint to cover the grooves in the side boards and had to be touched up. It's too costly to send it back from Alaska so I'll keep it.

This is a nice sturdy bookcase, I like the cottage style so perfect for me. A little warning to folks to be careful and pay attention to the dimensions. In the catalog the dimensions for the Tall bookcase read 58"H x 24"W x 14"D. I was a little disappointed when the bookcase is put together it stands 58"H which is correct but the actual space for your books is much smaller 17"W x 11.5"D so if you are expecting 24"W and 14"D for all your books you will be disappointed. The only part that is 24" x 14" is the wood top of the bookshelf.
