Has anyone put one of the Walmart Ameriwood bookcases together yet?

I think I bought one of these from Big Lots a while ago, it was the 5 shelf and I paid $25. I'm pretty good at putting stuff together but it was unnecessarily complicated, there's a lot of screws and nails needed and it's a two person job to get the side pieces to line up (even then I couldn't get it flush). It's just badly designed.

By comparison, the only other bookcase I have is a Billy bookcase from Ikea - 2 side panels, 2 top panels, everything's pre-drilled and it took around 4 screws total to put it together. Literally takes 5 minutes to take it apart or put it together.. something you should consider if you ever need to move the bookcase.

No... it isn't a better price... at all. Not only is this not a FP deal, it's a downright bad deal. This is about normal price or slightly overpriced. My contribution is letting people know the deal is awful and not to get it.
Thanks for the follow up!

I would love to see a pic...I am looking for a bookcase to be my "pantry", so if I can make it somewhat cuter that would be great since it will be in the kitchen everyone is always in and so everyone will see the bookcase. I was thinking about getting burlap or something to put against the back, but bead board sounds nice too. TIA
Not the best pic but I had leftover stuff from another project. Put a melamine board on top, Moulding on the top and bottom and beadboard on the back. Haven't painted it yet since I'm pregnant but I like the way it looks in our nursery. Sturdy too!

Wonder how many of these are long term reviews. My piece of crud Wal-Mart bookcase started falling about less than a year later.

Picked up two of the 5 shelf cases. They look good and are decent quality. I would definitely recommend using the stud mounting screw it comes with. It could easily fall if a little one is messing around with the book case.
