I really like this shelf and it serves its purpose perfectly. I installed it into the side of a tall cabinet, which means it's secured into solid wood. I would not recommend installing it into drywall only, even with good anchors. My only complaint is that they did not provide a means to securely tighten the bolts that hold the glass shelf to the brackets (such as a knurled edge or slot for screwdriver). Then again, one could easily over-tighten these bolts and break the glass, which might be a good reason why they only let you go finger-tight.
We bought 2 of these and they serve perfect in our bathrooms over commode. The look is neat and contemporary can be used for decorative purpose or to hold your bath bottles & accessories. Feels sturdy and I think it will wear with time. Happy with my purchase. They were fixed by a plumber and he said it was easy for him (well they are experienced & din't even care to read instructions) as it was a new house.
I looked at many glass shelves for our master bathroom and this was by far the highest quality. The fixtures are solid and look expensive. The shelf and fixtures came wrapped carefully and my husband now has some counter space. I will be buying more of these for our other bathrooms.
Ordered 2 shelves, arrived in excellent condition except one of the brackets had all the parts missing. Called distributor (not Overstock) to have parts sent. After 7 - 10 days called again and was told they should arrie from Taiwan sometime next month. Returned the items and bought locally.

Great product so far--I just installed the shelf a few days ago. The only thing is that it would be helpful if the instructions indicated the distance between the two holes in the glass for installation purposes. Be sure to measure that (very exactly) before mounting anything. A very minor miscalculation will mean that the glass won't fit on the wall mounts. Very satisfied!

It was just the right size and style I was looking for to place in my half bath. Glass thickness was good .... not too thin. Brackets, pretty and not cheap in appearance. The only drawback, which I knew but reading other posts by consumers, no template was included. I knew my husband wouldn't have a problem putting it in place so it wasn't an issue for us. I put a little vase, decorative candle and sprigs of small flowers on the shelf and it looks perfect!

I liked the design of this shelf better than others I considered. As others have indicated, there is no template provided to help you drill holes in the right places on the wall, but with a little bit of careful measuring, it isn't so hard. The metal components are heavy and well made.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? As described.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very nice quality.
Other buys commented on lack of installation directions while I agree there should have be a template to drill the necessary mounting holes, it really isn't a problem for someone with reasonable skill with a tape measure and a pencil.

This is a great product, is well-made, and adds a bit of class to our bathroom remodel. The only reason it did not earn 5 stars was that it lacked installation instructions. We were able to think through the steps and are very happy with the results.
Shelves are exactly as described and will look wonderful in my new bathroom.
