These decorative wall shelves in a walnut finish laminate, show two boxes that intersect with each other, and can be hung vertically or horizontally. These shelves are the ideal accent for any living space.
Materials: Laminated MDF
Type: Wall mount
Can be hung vertically and horizontally
Number of shelves: 2
Dimensions: 14 inches high x 26 inches wide x 6 inches deep
Assembly took about 20 min. Directions were clear. I think it looks nice. The only downside was that after assembly the screw heads are then covered with a thin plastic disc that raises above the surface of the shelf. A little knob/bump. In otherwords, it is not recessed into the shelf. But the price was right and it will do the job.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? ok
Please tell us about the quality of the product. fair.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? ok
The description of the product was accurate, but the picture was deceptive. It does not show all the hardware that shows after you put it together, it makes the wood look nicer than it is in person, and worst of all- it makes the shelves look MUCH bigger than they are. I don't know how they fit all those items onto the shelf in their display picture- they must be miniature figurines because I can barely fit a 4x6 picture frame in it and it takes up one entire shelf.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was very close to the color in the picture, but the wood was not as shiny/clear as they make it seem- it is dull and looks somewhat cheap
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The product came in one flat box- completely separate pieces you had to put together yourself. The quality is comparable to an IKEA product- wood is easily scratchable and you can see every screw/nail you have to use to put it together.

I recently received this product and am going to have to return it. It was well packaged and fit together as instructed, but it's just really cheaply made and looks it. The pieces aren't precision-cut, so when assembled there's gaps, and you have to cover all the screw-holes with those plastic button-like covers that are really visible on the assembled product. Finally the finish is just a really plasticy-looking laminate. So if you are going to be viewing it from 20 feet away, or it's going to a teenage boys dorm room, fine, but otherwise don't waste your money on this disappointing product. ** I bought it together with "Laminated Espresso 'S' Wall Mount Shelves (Set of 2)" which are great and way better quality. Consider those instead**
flimsy particle board with peeling laminate. Grommets fell off as soon as it was hung on wall. Not sure where the word "Walnut" comes into play. An enormous disappointment from something that was purcased as a gift. Maybe worth $5
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? color match seemed fine
Please tell us about the quality of the product. shoddy and cheap looking. Dime store quality at best
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not accurate
Pros: Simple, quick assembly - 15 minutes.
Attractive from a distance
Cons: Poor quality materials
VIsible mounting hardware and assembly hardware
Shiny, pebble-textured plastic laminate finish
The particle board construction is not as good as the MDF used in other products available from Overstock, the hanging hardware is visible and prevents flush mounting, and the assembly hardware is visible unless covered with the included flimsy plastic caps. (If you decide on getting the shelves, I would recommend painting over the screw heads with brown nail varnish instead.) The Laminate Intersecting Wall Shelf, Item #: 15150414, is a better choice for quality of materials and finish, and for its recessed mounting brackets.
It was easier for me to figure out how to assemble the unit vs. trying to decipher the instructions. It only took me about 15 minutes all together. This shelf is used to store my grandson's XBox games and controllers. Works great!
Our purchase was of the Intersecting Rectangular shelves and the set of 3 Floating shelves. They all look nice and assembled easily, but there are a couple of problems. The Intersecting shelves did not have any holes predrilled for the 3 mounting brackets. I mounted the brackets and an attempt was then made to mount the unit on the wall.
The wall was predrilled for the plastic screw expanders. The expanders have a pair of arms that I thought were designed to lock against the inside of the sheet rock wall when the screw was driven home. What really happened was the arms broke into the sheet rock wall and opened the hole too much. I tried to put a screw into one and pull it out by hand. It just dropped into the wall…lost forever. The other two also failed to hold and dropped into the wall to keep the others company.
#1. The intersecting shelves should have the 3 mounting bracket holes predrilled.
#2. You don't specify what size hole should be drilled for the plastic mounts.
#3. The plastic mounting devices (ex3) are useless. Maybe if you provided better instructions on how to use them life would be smoother.
Based on the problems mounting the rectangular shelf, I'm not going to try to mount the 3 "U" shelves until I get better information on the use of the plastic devices, or you send something that will work properly. So far I am unhappy with your products.
