*Do not tighten the wall bracket screws all the way at first. As stated: you may have to shimmy something behind the center of the wall bracket so you can latch the unit onto it. Also, I had to shimmy something behind the back wall of the unit itself because it sagged a bit on the front end. You should be able to catch at least 2 studs with all of the screw hole positions. I think it uses about 7 screw holes. USE PLASTIC DRYWALL SCREW SLEEVES when not in a stud. PRO: Good utility, large surface area, looks nice CON: Tricky installation, heavy front end
Shelves are great. Placed order for first 2 shelves and when they arrived, I decided to re-order another 2. Glad I did given the price increase (bought them at $****/ea.). Placing them in the basement as additional shelving to compliment flat screen TV / entertainment system.
We hung this piece this evening. My husband builds things daily and found this item difficult to install. The wall bar had to be shimmed out for secure placement into the shelf. With time and experience it went up and looks very nice. It looks tasteful and expensive! We are happy with our purchase!
The shelf is heavy and I agree that screwing into a couple studs is the way to go. It comes with a 39" pre-drilled mounting bar so you can either position the holes over the studs or drill new holes for more accurate placement. The picture is a very good representation and the finish is a very nicely done deep rich mahogany cherry.
Just received this storage shelf a couple of days ago. It's so nice that I came back to buy another. There are two drawers; the interior measurement of each is approximately 6" facing front to back, and 18" wide (side to side), and about 1¾" is the depth of drawer. Perfect for hiding little clippers, etc, in one side, and toothpaste, etc., in the other while its display shelf is useful for 'prettier' powder-room things located next to the mirror and sink.
I agree with the other review, this is a sizable piece and should be mounted in a stud if possible. I bought two shelves to use under my wall mounted plasma TV. Very handsome looking. The drawers are shallow, however it works perfectly for me for storing remote controls. Highly recommend this piece. Great value for the money.
This is a great looking shelf and easy to install. Just make sure you're able to locate a stud since it's hefty just by itself. The drawers are nice but doesn't get used much since the shelf is mounted above head level. I would like to get another for the bedroom one but it's sold out unfortunately.
