This product far surpasses the inexpensive and poorly constructed commode stands now available at discount stores like XXXXXX and XXXXXXXX. The oak wood shelves are solid and the construction is strong and durable. It is well worth the extra money spent for both quality, endurance and appearance. I would repurchase this product again in the future if needed.
No assembly instructions, and there were some brackets included to stabilize the commode stand with no obvious place or way to attach them to the shelf/wall. For the price, they should have been better quality -- and definitely include instructions to put them together and then stabilize the shelf stand. Because the shelf is not deep and is top heavy, it is necessary to anchor this shelf to a wall.
