This shelf looks like the PB Samantha shelf at a fraction of the cost. The directions are really not that clear, but you can figure it out if you take your time. There is not a full backing to the back of the cubbies (meaning that you can see the wall when mounted). If hung correctly, the hooks are study and can support jackets & coats.
We purchased 5 shelves on this site that were awesome. We purchased this one the same day. The quality of this is poor, made with particle board. We purchased it for a bathroom so it will not hold up. We had to finish painting the unfinished sides of all the pieces to seal it and then we could put it together. No baskets came with this set. The other sets we purchased were of a much nicer quality, were solid wood and were finished and then included the baskets for less money. This was a very disappointing purchase.
ordered this item for storage for entranceway. holds up well and looks more expensive than it is. Great value for the price. we use it to store outdoor items, mittens gloves, dog leashes ect; items that would normally clutter the entrance area. not too difficult to assemble. love that it has hooks to hang, a great organizational item. I see complaints about the quality which is surprising, The quality is exceptional for the price. I didnt invest in a high end piece of furniture , I bought a unit that I know I was going to treat rough, and got above what i would expect for the price. It holds up well for the rugged use we give it
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? exact as described
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. good quality for price, sturdy holds up
Great in garage entry near mud room. Sturdy, functional and attractive. Not at all difficult to assemble or mount. Instructions are not correct as others have pointed out, but it isn't difficult to tell what goes where. Good product. Highly recommended.
I was disappointed when putting this piece together. The instructions are not very good. You must be careful to get everything in the correct direction. The holes that the plastic dowels go into were deeper than they should have been and swallowed up the entire peg. I was covered in black "shoe polish" when I was done assembling this piece. The black permanant marker included with the hardware should have been a clue.
Coordinates very nicely with Sonoma Cubby Bench. Rich, warm color. Works really well to hang coats if you don't have a coat closet in your home. Would be nice if website linked a set of baskets to this product so that customers would not need to shop around on their own for baskets to fit after receiving the shelf.
Sadly, this cubby shelf wasn't up to snuff. The assembly instructions were incorrect as another reviewer pointed out. Please get the correct instructions before attempting to assemble. Otherwise, you'll wind up with holes where there shouldn't be! Otherwise, product is OK...
This looks really good in our mudroom and it is great to have the hooks to hang jackets and backpacks. Downfalls....and I realize it was budget friendly, but fiberboard in shelf split apart from screw. We glued it and painted over and it is in an unobtrusive area. The other problem is I have had trouble finding baskets that fit right in the space.
bought 2 of these to hang in church childcare rooms. They look really nice and were relatively simple to assemble / mount. You should know they are really heavy because they are composite board - lots of glue in the composite makes them weighty. You need to be careful therefor where you hang them so that they are secure. They are serving the purpose for which they were purchased quite nicely.
Simply the best functional cubbies I have found online. However, they are not easy to assemble or hang, being very heavy, you need 2 people. Serviceable, functional, no nonsense and unobtrusive in design for those who like things basic. I do.
