The color was not even close - it is cherry. One unit was missing half the hardware (there had been a hole in the box). Took 9 days to receive replacement hardware and guess what, it was the right style, but wrong size. Ended up going to hardware store and buying inventory on my own.
Also ordered the ladder style unit with desk (also supposed to be mahagony), but it was orange in color. Had to return unit - now I am missing the piece I really wanted the most.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was a lot redder than specified (almost cherry)

How accurate was the on site description of the product? Color was way off
My first O purchase and what a disappointment! Terrible packaging and awful instructions. This two piece set came in 2 internal boxes that were BOTH opened on one end. DID I GET SOMEBODY'S RETURN? The 50+ nuts, botls etc were not bagged or secured in the boxes so they just spilled out when I opened each of the boxes. Pieces were missing or broken so I had to go to the local hardware store to purchase replacement hardware. One set had a good ding in one of the shelves but, luckily it was on the back and on another shelf I had to hammer the lip back onto the shelf. Not good workmanship although it is a very nice looking unit when you finally get it together. Altogether, not worth the trouble......try a different manufacturer.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor workmanship

This shelf set is awesome. Very easy to assemble. It looks great in my living room. I put one on each side of my fireplace/tv stand and they matched perfectly. You would think I bought everything at the same time.
I'm happy with it. ...............................................................................................................................................................................................
I liked everything about these shelves except that the color was a darker mahogany than the picture. That can sometimes happen when purchasing online but it would be a good idea for the description to have that possibility in there. Packaging was tight for shipping disasters. I placed mine on separate walls in the same room and it added the finishing touches we were looking for. Being 72" high was a perfect compliment for our vaulted ceilings. Thanks Overstock!

Very tempted to buy one, but I am very much questioning how sturdy this shelf is. Could you please explain. Is there anchors? Do I have to drill the wall? Thanks a lot!ilia73 on Jun 22, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The weight limit for each ladder shelf (from top down) Shelf 1 (top), 2, 3 limit 10 lbs Shelf 4, 5 (bottom) limit 20 lbs. Although it is not necessary, I personally would anchor all the vertical board lengths to the wall just to provide that extra precaution I would want because of children wanting to climb up on items such as this.
Thank you for shopping Overstock.com; let us know if you have any additional questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 26, 2013
I have not had to drill. I have had the shelves for almost a year--and though they were a little frustrating to assemble (I am not good at that kind of thing) once completed they are very sturdy--no mount required for me. I stack some wine bottles, barware, and wine accessories, etc. on them.lisacalifornia on Oct 11, 2013
