~*~*~ Argos Beech Baby Bookcase ~*~*~
When we moved into our current home I knew I wanted bookcases to fit in the alcoves, however these alcoves are really slim. I got on the buyers bible aka the Argos catalogue out and started my search for a bookcase, or actually two in my case.
~ What is it? ~
This is a small two shelf bookcase, it is finished in a beech wood effect. The shelves are adjustable and can be placed at different heights.
~ Why did I choose this one? ~
My initial reason for eventually choosing this one came down to the price. It was in a 50% savings sale so I ended up paying a very low £6.49 for this and as I needed two it ended up working out that I was getting two for the price of one. Not only did the price attract me but it looked small and that is what I was after.
The bookcase has a height of 82.5cm, a width of 65cm and a depth of 16.5cm, which as it worked out was just about right for where we wanted them to go.
~ How does it look? ~
It actually looks quite good when it is put together. It came flatpacked in a simple white and blue thick cardboard package, once opened I could see that every single piece needed putting together, it came with all the fixings so that was a good thing.
The instructions were clear but it was easy to work out anyway.
Once put together the back piece needed to be tacked into place and when complete it looked good, I was expecting it to look a bit cheap due to the price however once in their place and filld with my items it looked a lot more expensive than it was.
~ Overall ~
I am very happy with these, the shelves can be put in various places to make the most of the space. The shelves are very narrow but they are more than capable of holding a book without it hanging over the edge. They are solid and look great.
They can hold a good amount of books and a massive amount of DVD's and computer games.
They do the job very well.
It's not a huge bookcase but it certainly holds what I need it to and more. They fit neatly into the space I have available and look neat and tidy.
I have mine pulled out slightly from the wall so I could sit a lamp on top and whilst the bookcase is narrow it is more than capable of holding a lamp.
You could also stack these if you so wished to do so in order to make a taller bookcase but Argos do stock taller cases anyway.
They are quite heavy for something so cheap and are not flimsy in anyway, they not only look good but are also solid too.
~ Price & Availability ~
These are available from Argos priced at £12.99.
Thanks for reading :o) x
Summary: A really great cheap bookcase from Argos.
