This product took a long time to get to my house because it was shipped from another country and had to pass customs. When the product got here it was in a long box. None of it was assembled and the bottom shelf was cracked. Some of the corners looked like they had been wet because the particle board looked like it expanded some. It was not easy to put together and some of the instructions were spelled wrong etc. It took us two hours to put it all together. We made a mistake on one of the shelf separators and when we tried to take it apart to fix it more pieces broke. The shelf is beautiful but the quality is cheap.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The pic looks like a darker color.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I paid a lot of money for what I thought was quality wood. It's particle board.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? The description was about right.
This piece looks good and holds a lot of extra stuff in the mudroom. It went together fairly easily, but note that it is VERY heavy. They have accounted for this in the way it installs on your wall (you attach a long bracket to the wall studs and then attach the shelf to the bracket), but you will likely need two people or one very strong person with a good wingspan to get this up.
Bought this for my daughter, who has twin boys and another on the way. She needed a place for coats, hats, gloves, back packs, etc, since their house does not have a coat closet. We got this along with the matching bench with shoe compartments. These two items provide ample space for all the shoes and other things needed by a busy growing family, while adding to the decor and taking up very little floor space.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very high quality
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very accurate, and pictures help, too.
When I opened the box I worried it might be too long for the hall, but it turned out that it fit perfectly. Could have used some advice on how high to hang it but we managed to figure it out. It's a pretty good quality shelf, it definitely is serving it's purpose. We hang out coats and hats on it nicely. But, the part that you attach to the wall for the shelf to sit on has an unfinished underside which is not very attractive, seems funny that everything was thought of but that one little section... I'm fairly sure I put it all together correctly! Anyway, a nice addition to the hall and will look even nicer once it's been decorated with our clutter.
Picture is a little deceiving. The model boxes they've displayed in the picture hides the back "bar" that is mounted to the wall (def recommend mounting to studded drywall) and required to hang this entire piece. It just didn't look great have that portion exposed, even if it is colored the same as the entire shelving. Ours came damaged on the corner. It felt solid, but looks a little cheap.
Large piece perfect size for family of five. Easy to put together. First item was damaged in shipping. Overstock made right immediately and second arrived no problems. Very well built and looks great in our home. I wouldn't hesitate to buy furniture from overstock in the future.
This shelf style is great, it was just what I wanted but the quality was very poor. It is made of a cheep laminated fiber board that did not look like it would hold up to much use. The description did not say what it was made of but I guess for the price I should have known.. It arrived broken so I never put it together or put it up on the wall. Overstock credited my account quickly and easily and I will defiantly shop with them again.
This is worth the money you pay. The so-called wood is particle board with a black/brown film covering it. It weighs a ton so it will cost you $XX to return it. If you want something for your garage this would be sufficient. If you want something nice for the inside of your home I would recommend spending a little more on something nicer. Save your money!
Looks great in my entryway. Friends and family can hang their coats, and purses instead of cluttering the couch and floor when visiting. Also my hubby no longer misplaces his keys. He has his own personal cubby hole! Dark espresso and good quality.
This was an awesome buy!! We hesitated a little bit after reading the reviews, but couldn't pass it up. It was easy to put together and of good quality. It has organized our mud room and was just what we needed for winter coats, snow pants, and all the other winter gear. We purchased the cubby bench also, very happy with it!!! Highly recommend!!!
Product is made of pressed board which is fine - expect to assemble it which again is fine. However, don't expect to take the product with you. I assembled my product brand new today and liked the look of it. We had a measurement issue and had to move just the base wall board over by two inches which I didn't think was a big deal. However, when I took the screws out the board cracked in half. So I was able to mount it to the wall but won't be able to salvage it for a move. So nice if you will never move it but if you are in a profession that moves you expect to leave the product on the wall for the next renter.
