I bought two of these shelves to utilize multiple hallway corners in my new home. The shelves looked like they would be great for displaying belt buckles that I have accumulated over the years. The shelves arrived together pretty quickly and were simple to assemble. Mounting proved to be a little difficult for one of the shelves which was sent with one incorrectly sized screw for mounting... which we only realized after pounding the wood screws into the drywall... great. We were able to hang the other shelf with no incident - so it definitely wasn't operator error. Slightly frustrating to make an additional trip to home depot for correctly sized screws, have two unnecessary holes punched through the walls in my new home, and a delay in getting my things up and displayed. Probably wont be purchasing from this manufacturer again.
The Picture is ALMOST exactly what to expect. What you cannot see on the picture is how all the boards connect with screws. These screws have cheap plastic caps to cover the head of the screw. After the caps are installed they standout and really ruin the clean finish look I was hoping for.

I saw these on sale and looked around my living room for a place to put it. I had a perfect spot as it turns out, so I bought it. I did not however read the description carefully. These are laminated veneer, which means they're made of particle board with a, in this case cheap, veneer over the top. They screw in at the top and bottom in the middle of the board, and they give you a plastic cap to cover the screw head. In fact, most of the screws holding the individual pieces are visible and must be capped. Overall it's not the quality I would have hoped for, but for a good deal they do the job of holding my travel souvenirs just fine.
Easy to put together, inexpensive, and just really nice. Super modern and does require a near-perfect 90 degree angle corner, otherwise it will look completely off. I did have to switch its originally designated place because of this - but looks great nonetheless. Would recommend for small rooms w/ lack of storage space and few usable walls.
Thought it was a bit pricey, but I love the way this looks in the corner of my bedroom so much! It took a bit of time to assemble, but it was easy to figure out and put together. Hanging it was very easy, too. I'm using this to display my collection of vintage banks, and they look so cute on this. Really dresses up the corner of my bedroom where I've hung this. Completely happy with this purchase.
I bought two of these shelves to go on my wall and they look good. The pieces don't line up perfectly,but you can't tell when you are looking at them from a few feet. The finish is slightly cheap looking but could be painted. Overall the product looks good for the price and I'm happy!
I bought 2 of the walnut finish corner shelves for my bedroom. It took less then 20 minutes to assemble both shelves, any only a few minutes to secure them to the wall. For the price, I think they're great. They are very dark brown with honey hues to resemble walnut wood grain. The design is fun and unusual, and really compliments the decor in my room. Fast shipping and packaged very well. Thanks Overstock!
Product was shipped in a timely manner. This corner accent shelf adds character to any room. It's convenient for a room with not a lot of wall space and or if you have young kids that tend to knock your favorite pieces of tables and break them, because it's up high. Make sure before purchasing this shelf that you're aware of the 7 inch dimensions as you can only fit small and light weight items on this shelf. Also, it's helpful to make sure the corner you choose to place it in has a stud or the least sturdy sheet rock, so it doesn't leave huge torn holes in the sheet rock. I am very satisfied with this shelf and even went on to buy one for my son's bedroom!!!!
I ordered a few of these and assembled them slightly differently than the original intent. I put a pair together for the kitchen, to go on either side of the window, using only 3 shelves on each. They hold my prettiest coffeemugs, keeping them in easy reach. I added the leftover shelves to another pair that I mounted on the dining room wall, 16 inches apart, with straight shelves in between, to give me a place to display my cookie jar collection and some other decorative pieces. It looks like I bought it that way! Be careful when you assemble these shelves if you are going to use them in a pair. You have to make sure that the shelves face the right directions -- you don't want them exactly the same, you want them to be mirror images. I had to re-do one to get them to fact the right way.
This shelf was easy to put together and is sturdy. I bought it for my sons room to display a few of his sports trophies and other items, and I think it looks gorgeous. He really liked it too, which I didn't think he'd have much to say about a shelf. I purchased the brown one, and placed it in the room against a blue-green accent wall, and due to the way the shelf zigzags between the two wall colors it looks really neat. It's good quality, I'm definitely going to purchase another one for my smaller downstairs bathroom to hold some decorations.
The piece looks great in a corner, near our corner computer table and really adds visual interest to an awkward double corner area. We can add small photo frames and it just pulls the whole corner together. Definitely not made of wood but when place near dark woods its looks great!
