This is my worst purchase I've made in a very long time. I wish that I would have flushed my *** down the toilet instead and saved myself a lot of trouble. Everyone's right about it being difficult to hang. In fact, I purchased this 9/2010. After numerous unsuccessful attempts to hang it, I gave up. I would get it out and give it the good ol' try periodically. Unsuccessful, as usual. Then, today, I looked up the reviews, and decided to try again. I used the shimmey like suggested, and finally, the little nuts fell into the slot where they belong. Shocked, my son and I were doing the high-five! We tugged and pulled on it to make sure it was actually on the wall, after all, it had been 13 months trying to get it there. Satisfied it was going to stay, we put a few light weight items on it and walked away, only to hear a loud crash. Not ony did the shelf break apart, but it went crashing down on the few items that had been placed on it. One item was a $150.00 decorated ostrich egg that is shattered. The shelf is actually in pieces, and has a cracked area. I hate this shelf !!!!!!!!!!

I put this up over my 36" flat screen - What a beauty.
Strong and pretty, creates a mantle effect immediately without a fireplace. You can get a fireplace screen savor for the TV and place this over the TV - so modern so chic - easy installation as well - I installed in over concrete and even that was easy.

agree with other reviewers: tricky to put up and even on new sheet rocked walls a shimmy (or something like that) was needed. Once one went up the others were relatively easy. Strong and sturdy! Drawers work beautifully. Very neat, clean and classy look.
I love the color, matches my new bath vanity. I have a very small bathroom so I need a large shelf for display and for q-tips, etc. This shelf fits the bill for this purpose. Still working on shimming it for stability, it is very heavy and does need to be shimmed. The drawers are great for added storage. A little pricey but is exactly what I was looking for.
It seems that others had a hard time hanging this product... I didn't, I was all by myself and it didn't take me all that long at all, however I think it would have been better if I had the right tools in the first place. I just moved in to a new house and as a female that had lived with her dad... I just ended up borrowing his tools.
The instructions were very simple, I think they should have included at least the drill bit size that you need for the wall. I ended up using a bit that was too small at first (I didn't want to make the holes too large, so it would fall). However after trying to adjust the size of the hole so that the screw anchor could be gently hammered in the wall, I found that it was too large (thankfully I have learned from past exp. that you complete one at a time to make sure it is right before filling your wall full of useless holes).
After drilling the right size holes and putting the screw anchors in, I started screwing the brace/hanger in the wall, I found that the hanger had gotten bent ever so slightly. I thought about taking it down and trying to straighten it, but I thought my "fixing" it would only cause more damage in the end so I pressed on. I hung the shelf, it did take a couple of tries, but it was not difficult at all... I placed my level on it, and it was nice and even side to side, but from wall to front it was not level at all... I made some shimmies (is that the right word?) to go behind/under the shelf to even it out. I use the shelf every day as side table for my chaise and it is sturdy and (now) even.
I like this product and I wouldn't mind buying another if I needed it, just make sure that you know that things don't always come perfect, and you might make a few mistakes along the way, as long as you are well equipped to deal with them, its all good.

I installed this shelf in my bath and really like it. Love the drawers for storing combs, razors, etc. They could be a little deeper in order to accommodate a hair brush but that side, a great product.

The person who designed this thing didn't care, or think about how it would be mounted to a drywall stud wall, The screw holes are not at standard stud positions. It is made to be mounted to a brick wall, or chimney above a fireplace. I had to screw a furring strip to the wall then screw the metal mount to that. Huge pain.

i want to use it for a deck monitor stand.can this sit on a desk instead of hung on the wall?strassler on Feb 23, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
It would be up to you if you would like it to sit on your desk. The back of this shelf is not solid and you can see the hardware. Unless it is against a wall you will see the hardware on the shelf.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 27, 2012
