These arrived in great shape and were fairly easy to put together, provided you pay attention to what you're doing. My husband and I put all 3 together in probably under an hour or so (one mishap with the first set, which was quickly amended). We've had them for about a month now and we're very pleased with them. They look a lot more expensive than what you pay for them, and the style blends in with a lot of the mid-century aesthetic we were going for in our home. The shelves are pretty sturdy and hold quite a lot of books and knick-knacks. Considering how much they hold, the footprint is relatively small, so these shelves are definitely a good buy for smaller spaces. We put ours into a small nook and there's still plenty of room for a record player table and walking space. The only minor downside is that we couldn't get them to be perfectly flush with each other, even after taking out those lil wooden stoppers that cover the screw holes. It might just be that we have these placed on carpet and that's inherently going to be more uneven than a hard surface. But the discrepancy is hardly noticeable, so that doesn't detract from the quality of the product.
On the plus side these leaning shelves are really classy looking in a room and pretty solid. On the down side be prepared for at least 2 1/2 hours to put these 3 together. The challenge is that the cam lock holes in each tier are drilled too deep...so you need to carefully position them and then put the bolt in with an Allen wrench. Again, I love them...but assemble was grueling.
These shelves are easy to put together and look nice, but I would recommend buying a color other than oak. These are a fake orange color. They;'re too heavy to send back, so I think I'll paint them.
