CSN Review

A few weeks ago I had won $75 at Adventures of Cecelia Bedelia's blog for CSN Furniture.  And many of you know I just love their furniture. :)  So, I thought I would share the latest item I got.  And of course it is related to books...

This shelf was one I wanted for a while now.  I love the look of it and it matches the desk I have nicely.  And if my husband gets the chance to make my books shelves, I can keep this one here or use it in the dinette to hold items as well.

I found this one, like the others pretty easy to put together.  Their where the special lock screws which I goofed up with when first putting them in, but it was an easy fix and away I went with the assembly when I realized it.  This one did take a little more putting together as it is bigger than any of the other items I've purchased.

I will say one shelf had a crack in the finish of the plywood, and I was afraid it went the whole way through, and with putting books on the shelf I was afraid it wouldn't hold well.  So I made the call to the manufacture (number was easily found on the assembly paper) and they where very kind and helpful.  I told them which shelf number it was and they UPSed me another one out the next day.  I got it in just a short few days and had the shelf completed in no time flat.  It was nice working with a kind company.

So, now I have the shelf completely full and ready to purchase my next set of shelves.
