These shelves add the perfect touch to my sitting room decor and allow for extra storage of books, frames, vases, figurines, etc. I gave this three stars because the shelves do not sit flat. They either bend forward or back. The legs of the ladder shelf do not stay hooked together....they bend.
Not the best quality...one of the pre-drilled holes was not drilled through, so one of the shelves is not fully supported. I got nervous when putting this together as the wood creaked when I tightened the screws. However, it was easy to assemble on my own and it looks great in my space. The finish was pristine (no scratches or mars to the wood). Given the low price, I think this shelving unit was a great purchase.
We were living in another county temporarily, yet I wanted to display some of my things from my other house. This was nice quality and provided a place for me to have a few of my familiar items close at hand, so I felt more at home. It was an inexpensive way to make the change fun, and compact enough to bring it back when we returned to our original location.
Not very happy with the quality of this product! Bought this for my daughter's college apartment and within a month it fell over and BROKE!!!! Garbage, that's where it ended up because that's what it is. The wind from her sliding glass doors being opened was able to knock it over and BREAK IT ... WOULDN'T RECOMMEND!!!!!
The wood was nice but the holes didn't line up for the screws. You have to attach the top to the bottom and it wasn't flush it had a space in between which looked funny. Also one of the screws broke when I was putting it together. Ended up returning.
