Can you use this without the shelf dividers?

Can you assemble this without the dividers so that the shelves are not split into two cubes? I would like to store games on the shelves and they are too long to fit in a cube.

Click on the 8 cube organizer and the video will start after a couple of advertisements. I couldn't find printed instructions but there is an email address to contact them. It is admin@jxhuisen.com.

My husband put it together in about 1 1/2hours with interruptions. It DOES come with GOOD directions. Can you google the maker (from the box) and ask them to send you another set of directions? I would help more if my husband hadn't thrown directions and box away! He is bad about that and to let you know, always slow putting any of these things together. Lots of interruptions in our house. I don't think calling Walmart will help unless they can get you the phone number of the manufacturer. Make sure you get all the detail before going online or even calling later like model number, anything you can get off the box. Hopefully someone still has the directions still, can copy them and mail to you.

It's not a chocolate nor a black. My daughter has a bedroom suite from a furniture store. It is considered Expresso in color. This would match her room just fine so I would qualify it as a true Expresso. It would NOT match your black furniture, sorry.

I have this organizer next to a black media tower. You can definitely tell the difference between the two - especially if there's a light close by. Even so, this organizer is a very deep brown, but might be mistaken for black in certain lighting. I'm not sure how helpful that is, but it's my two cents. :)

I stacked mine width wise on top of each other to give it a better look rather than looking simply like two shelving units together. If you are talking about stacking them vertically on top of each other I would not recommend it since it would be some 120" tall.

As long as your floor is sturdy it shouldn't be a problem. It syas on the instructions that the long edge will take 150lb weight. Personally I would hinge them together and also fix them to the wall for safety.

I have not stacked them, however they are very sturdy and I will stack the next set I buy. I will put them stacked against the wall. I am going to also put one of the 4 cube in my family room and use as a place to sit with a bench pillow and a piece of wood cut a little shorter in length to use in between the pillow and cube unit for added support. Good luck and let me know how it turns out for you:)

My husband put this together, so I went to him.

"No Way! Too Heavy!"

Seeing just the size of the shelf, I would agree. We even have ours on its side for stability. If you have it upright, or on carpeting or have kids, dogs or cats, for safety, either have it on its side or anchor it to the wall. When we bought furniture for our house through a reputable furniture company; bookcases, dressers, chifferobes and other tall, heavy, upright furniture, it included metal hardware to attach to the furniture that would then attach it to the wall. I am sure you can also get this at a hardware store. Hope this helps.
