3-Tier Folding Bookcase 4.3 5 137 137
Great product Couldn't be happier. The shelves arrived quickly and were easy to use. I particularly appreciate being able to take them down just as easily and move them to another area without the bulk and weight of most bookcases. They look very nice. February 4, 2012
Versatile bookshelves I own a great many books, and these bookcases are useful because they can be stacked or used separately. They are very sturdy and are ready to use immediately. I like the fact that they fold because they can be stored easily and moved with little effort. February 4, 2012
Good Product I needed a new bookcase.This was easy tu put up (no assembly) and easy to move around. February 4, 2012
bookcase I simply love my 3 tier shelves, I ordered two and put them as one, they were so easy to put together and look great. I will most deffinately order again from Improvements Catalog. The price was great also. February 5, 2012

I am considering purchasing 2 of these in order to store books, toys, bins, etc. Wondering about the sturdiness of the product when potentially used for this purpose -- the kids have a lot of book and small bins. Thanks!

Answer: 
The shelves are very solid and sturdy, and should hold whatever you want to put on them. They have a good solid base and seem unlikely to tip over. However, they are quite shallow -- I think about 11" -- so you should compare their depth with the items you want to put on them before purchasing.

Answer: 
I would not use this for a child. The shelves are not very stable and I think it would topple over if much force was placed on the front of the shelves. I would only use it around children if you can secure it to the wall.

Answer: 
Yes it is very sturdy and good-looking - although the back is open, there is a slat to keep things from falling out - one is used for heavy music scores and the other one (with the optionbal top) holds books, CDs and a small sound system on top

Answer: 
You cannot add a second bookcase when you add a mantel. The mantel completes a unit. There are no pegs on top. I own 4 of these bookcase, 2 with mantel and 2 without. They are terrific.

Answer: 
The bookshelves have pegs you insert into holes on the top in order to stack them. If you add a mantel, it is also held on by those pegs and is smooth on the top, so you can only stack the bookcases or use a mantel, but not both.

Answer: 
Mantle is optional and only needed for top piece - you can leave open if you prefer. The shelf does not come with a top so if you are using them individually, you may want to get the mantle for each one. If you use a mantel, you cannot then tier another shelf on top of it.

Thank you for your question. You can't put the mantel between two bookcases. You can stack two bookcases and put the mantel on top.

Stability of stacked bookcases

I have a kitchen with 5 doors and 2 windows and because of that there is no space for cabinets. But I have an empty wall where shelves would fit if they are 12" deep or less. I have been looking for a very long time for shelves narrow enough to fit there. These would fit perfectly, but are they sturdy enough to be stacked?

I do not have children and I would put heavy items on the bottom shelves and light pots and pants on top. Eventually I may ask a carpenter to fix them to the wall. One of the pictures is a kitchen setup and looks very good.

I'd like to paint over it and make it a custom shade, but I don't want to risk it peeling off. So, if you could tell me what the top coat paint/finish is made of I'd appreciate it. If you think another model would be better suited to painting over, let me know. I'm going for an antique white final look, so I figured the white acts as my base coat. Thank you!

Thank you for your question. The book shelf has a lacquer finish. We recommend you take the shelf to a home center or hardware store where they can advise you on what is needed to produce the finish you want.
