Wow, it's finally here and it's beautiful!! I love the stain colour and it turned out more lovely than I imagined it would. I had a few doubts in my head leading up to this day like the colour of the stain, the cubed-ness of the bookshelf with or without legs but it turned out great and just what I wanted. I was a little worried about it being in 2 pieces instead of the 1 but you can't even tell that it's 2 seperate pieces! That's how good it looks. Plus it goes really great with my burgundy asian chest my father gave me. Can't wait to put all my novels/cds/dvds/knick knacks onto the shelf.
