CSN review

Remember a while ago a post about an upcoming review of a shelf sent to me by CSN Stores?

Well here it is!

You gonna tell me, well Tynga it took quite a while! And you would be right.

I was first approached by CSN Stores on May 6th and answered them right away, I was confirmed on May 7th that they would put my order in and send me an email with a tracking number. I waited patiently but by May 30th I hadn’t receive any news so I re-contacted them to let them know, and they realized they somehow forgot to put my order in. So they finally ordered my shelf on June 1st, and I got the tracking number on June 8th. I received my shelf on June 10th, and keep in mind that I am from Canada.

Since I got my shelf by un-ordinairy means, I would say that once my order was in the shipping was pretty fast and I got a good service.

This is what my package, and what the box inside looked like.

Everything was wrapped properly, and all pieces were protected as you can see from the wrapping below.

The shelf I got is 56 inches high, so I was expecting a much bigger box and was quite impress with it’s content.

A whole bunch of small pieces easy to assemble with easy to understand instructions.

Here’s a picture of the shelf half-way into it…

Sorry the picture isn’t all that great with my TV in the background =/

Now here’s what it looks like at the end, as you can see there are multiple shelves you can add for more shelving possibilities.

I personally chose to use only half of the shelves to fit Books (both paperback and Hardcover)and some Blu-rays and DVDs.

My boyfriend is the handyman at home so I “supervised” everything and within 25min the shelf was assembled. My bf was surprised by the great wood quality, and said he found it better then the IKEA furniture we have at home.

There are even little holes for the nails to fix the back panel to the shelf which makes things a lot easier!

This shelf is suppose to be a Media Storage unit, but I find it’s a perfectly fine small bookshelf!

So I’d like to thank CSN Stores! I am quite happy with my new shelf, and would definitely recommend purchasing from them.
