What do you do when you have a husband who won't read directions when it's time to put something together? You buy a Picotee Folding Bookcase! Most ready to assemble furniture comes with a long list of included screws and parts, plus a set of almost indeciperable directions. My husband usually wings it without consulting the directions, and some of the things he has put together have been rather "creatively" done. No problem with this bookcase, though! All he had to do was open the box, take out the bookcase, fold down the sides, and fold down the shelves, and he was done!
This is a nice, sturdy bookcase which has real wood shelves and measures around 4' high by 2' wide. Not the biggest bookcase in the world, but it suited our needs well. It is steady when empty, not at all wobbly, and is overall a very nice looking piece of furniture. It compliments our decor very well! We want to get another one of these, as we have MANY books!
