Argos deep brown bookshelf
Advantages: great bookshelf, simple design, can hold a lot of weight, was cheap
Disadvantages: the back does come off after time
After getting my dark brown chest of draws and up grading to a double bed I felt that my room needed something else to fill the space, plus my book, game and dvd collection was getting ridiculously large. i decided to buy this from argos because the dark brown wood goes with the rest of the furniture in my room,I was after black for all my furniture but it's always out of stock. To my surprise this was only £20 I thought this was acceptable and could afford to buy this myself.
=== Ordering ===
I was scrolling through the argos website when I came across this, having a look at the payment and pick up details and our Grimsby argos had one in stock. I reserved this online which was really straight forward to do and easy. On the site there were plenty of product pictures alone and with other furniture and items on the shelves. The description of the item was quite informative.
=== Assembling ===
As always I sat and watched as my dad pieced this together for me being useless as I am!. This is really simple, it comes with the thin cardboard/wood back, to long sides and seven shelves one being the bottom and one being the top. The sides, middle shelf and the bottom and top all fasten together with an allankey and screws which is really simple to do, You get a set of small metal pegs with this too, There are holes all down the inside of the wood so you can put the pegs in and position your shelves how ever you want them. This does come with a full set of instructions but it's pretty easy to put together.
=== Design ===
This is made of the average chipboard wood you find any budget furniture made out of with a smooth wooden finish laid over the top to make it look presentable. This is really tall although I am not sure on the exact measurements but I do know that this is 75cm wide. I like the way it gives you the option to put your shelves where you need them and if needs be you can even add more i you don't need them that far apart but need lots of them.
=== Durability ===
Before getting the back on this it is pretty unstable, wobbling and moving around but once the back is attached it's pretty solid but stand forward a little bit at the top but not by much. The shelves can hold a lot of weight, on most of my selves I have hardback books which with their weight combined it's really weighty. After a while of pushing books back or more things piling onto the shelves the back does start to come off because it's only tacked down this all you have to do is hammer the tacks back down.
Summary: a much needed bookshelf
