Super value!!... These shelves were easy to assemble and look great. They fit well in my narrow closet spaces. Super functional. I am back for more!... The only complaint I have involves the styrofoam packaging. I appreciate the secure packaging, I just wish there were an alternative to this environmentally-unsound material.
Bought two of these to use as "plant stands" in an open, airy "tower room". They work great and look very nice. They were easy to assemble; all the requisite parts and pieces were in the box. No special tools were needed. Directions weren't terrific, but putting these together is pretty intuitive so that wasn't a huge drawback. Shipping packaging was very good; everything arrived in one piece, with no holes/tears, and all the hardware needed was there and contained in a separate protected sack. The only qualifier is, if you're planning on using this shelf unit to hold variable height items, the shelves are NOT adjustable.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color is "natural" (basically, light/blond colored wood look), on both the site and in reality
Please tell us about the quality of the product. This is very sturdy (within reason); can't put hundreds of pounds of weight on it, but it holds a potted plant on each shelf with no problem, and is very stable.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate
I needed a thin shelf in my laundry room and this was just perfect. It offered 5 shelves to store things and the only problem I encountered was that one of the tiers had a small split which I sanded off.
Recommed if willing to put up with the possibility it might need gluing. The product had several piece that had come unglued. One slat didn't go all the way across. The flat surface slats of each shelf are bowed enough to somewhat affect the standing of tall thin items. After gluing several pieces it works well enough but not great. It fit a space I have in a bathroom.
I ordered the whole set for my bathroom. I have a similar tall shelving piece with baskets that I have had for almost 10 years, but it is falling a part and needed to replace it. It looked like this would be comparable and a little nicer. I should have paid more attention to the dimensions cause holy moly this thing is tall. Too tall to put anywhere in my bathroom, as it blocks outlets, light switches and windows. I am really bummed since this piece was the only one I really needed and was the justification for buying the other two matching pieces in this set. Now I will have to find another tall skinny shelf to try to match and I think it will be a major headache.
The Bamboo 5-Tier Shelf is a nice addition to our Spa/Sauna Master Bathroom. It is not very sturdy--so we will only put towels, tissue box and candles on the unit. The original unit arrived with 2 damaged (splintered) shelves--but Overstock's AMAZING customer service quickly remedied the situation. And THAT, my friends, is why I keep coming back to Overstock.com!
