I bought this for my guest bathroom. After I put the dry-wall plastic hard-ware that came with the shelf there was a little gap between the shelf and the wall. The shelf did not fit right. Later, I turned it up-side down and used a brace for the gap. Walla, I am very happy with this item, it does what I needed it to do.
The shelf came wrapped very professionally and secure. It had all mounting hardware included. Installation was a breeze. It looks beautiful. The ONLY problem I saw was that the brackets that are on the shelf are a little thin and so when I put things on the shelf (toothbrush holder, and small alarm clock) the shelf seemed to sag a little on the front under less than 1 lb. of weight. I was able to remedy the problem by putting some very small (and unnoticeable) slivers of wood between the brackets and the wall. Problem solved. The shelf is straight and all is well again.
Loved the shelf in my bathroom. Very happy it the cost compared to many other sites I saw it at.

After reading the reviews about the weight of the shelf I knew that my husband could install anchors in the wall to hold it. However you do need shims behind the brackets to get the shelf to stay level. Great thick glass and nice hardware

The shelf brackets are too thin to hold the weight of the glass and the unit sags. The shelf mounding brackets Must be put into studs otherwise the shelf will droop 5-10 degrees. This shelf should not be mounted into just drywall. Overall the unit looks great but the poorly designed brackets make it almost useless. There are no mounting instructions.
I looked everywhere for a shelf like this and was disappointed with the prices for the quality. I figured that I could take a chance with Overstock for the price. I was pleasantly surprised. The tempered glass is heavy and of great quality and the price was right. Another Overstock plus.
