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.
I was somewhat pleased with this shelf. I am in a starter home so it's great for now, but I wouldn't recommend for long term use. While putting it together several of the pieces broke due to poor quality. However, Overstock was great in sending replacement pieces. Shelves are not that sturdy so I was careful to place lightweight objects on them.
I purchased 2 but only got to keep 1 (due to shipping problem then a manufacturer defect the 2nd time). The one that I have is ok. It seems really flimsy and the paint from the shelf comes off on my wall VERY easily! I now have black paint on my grey walls!! I've purchased "leaning shelves" before and they were made of nice wood, a bit larger and all over better quality. I'll end up putting this one in the garage & buying the set that I had previously.
The bottom shelf arrived with a large scratch/scuff. The instructions were not clear and in fact, one of the barrel nuts broke in half during the assembly. Extra pieces were not included. Putting this together was frustrating. If I had it to do over, I wouldn't buy it again.
We had the worst time with this product. The dowel pins were to long. We had to cut some of them to fit. We went to push the two pieces together it cracked the outside because the pins were to long. When we went to push the screws in some of the screws would only catch by one thread then it would strip that screw and it wouldn't go in. I think it is a pretty cheap product for what I paid. I wanted to order another one but no way now after I received this poor product. Very dissatisfied with this item.
I bought 2 of these to flank my entertainment system. They look pretty, but close up they do not line up exactly as the measurements and angle that they lean are not the same. One shelf will not stay flat. But I'm a perfectionist. OK for the price. Had I gotten only one, and did not know the difference, I may have rated higher.
