Why on earth is this FP?
Better price, Better quality, Better Bookcase??? What's your contribution?

Someone already said the Big Lots book cases aren't decent enough quality, so what is your suggestion?

FYI - these are $15.84 at my local walmart for the 3 shelf. They are labeled as Mainstays but the instructions say Ameriwood. I added moulding and beadboard that I had left over from another project to make it look nicer... can post a pic if you'd like.

Here's the link

I've actually have no problem snagging shelves on Craigslist. People sell them all the time.

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

"Ameriwood" cracks me up. Doubtful these are made in America and since when is MDF considered "wood".

But hey, cheap shelves. Yeah I have one (looks to the right).

quick update: I cancel my online walmart order after placing 3 bookshelf case ( $107 shipped ), I went inside walmart and bought the same size one for $27 each.

take me 1 hours to put together, very sturdy, way better then big lot wimpsy one, Im going back buying 1 more today.

So check your local walmart, its had better deal.

Not sure why this is getting so much attention.....3-5 bucks off for a not so good quality product is not a slick deal for me.

This bookshelf has deeper shelves and are wider and appear to look nicer. Also, as someone else mentioned, you can use some moulding to dress these up -- throw a few against a wall and make them look built in.

Bought two in white for kids rooms. Will be great to get books off the floor and organized.

I've had these in the past; they're total cr*p. If you aren't very careful, they'll fall apart during assembly. Walmart does/did sell a far more sturdy and reasonably priced bookshelf that I've had around the house for years. Not super high quality by any means, but way more useful than these.

DO NOT !! buy from biglot, I did drove 30 min to the store after saw some one post about it, I check out the display,the wood is cheap, and very squislly , kinda like it going fall apart, I feel like if I put couple book, its going to break. Look very cheap compare to walmart one.

then I went to walmart and test the display, very firmly and tight, very sturdy feel, strong feel I mean . I bought it and went home, take 1 hours to put everthing together, very happy, the wood is very high quality wood. I feel a stack of book wont event hurt it. And the wood is feel better quality and heavy then big lot cheap ass wood.

I will check the difference if possible -- both are Ameriwood products.

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.
