These ladder shelves look amazing in my long entry hallway, and the price was right, so I bought 4 of them and lined them up next to each other. They filled the space perfectly. As one earlier reviewer had suggested, I left the screw covers off all of the shelves, except for the two outer sides; this way, they abut one another without any space in between each shelf. I am using these shelves to display a variety of interesting odds and ends - fossils, field guides and other books, shells, vacation souvenirs, etc. They seem plenty sturdy for this purpose. I'm not sure that I would load down every single shelf with heavy books, but these shelves are definitely sturdy enough to accommodate stacks of books here and there among the knickknacks. As other reviewers have noted, they are very open and airy and give the room a sense of space.

These shelves came together really easily, and I was able to assemble them 95% by myself. Please note there is a joint where the top rails meet the bottom rails... you don't really notice this when the shelves are full. I have them full of books and the shelves are very sturdy, in my opinion. They can even mostly stand up without even being against a wall, that's how good a job that foot does. Also, IF YOU WANT TO PUT A SET OF THREE TOGETHER, leave the screw covers off the middle shelf. That way the screw covers (which are very bulbous) of the end shelves nestle right in the holes of the middle shelf. Otherwise the shelves would have gaps between them, which isn't the end of the world, but doesn't look as smooth. The shelves are very versatile.. I have them against a vibrant green wall in a modern/eclectic apartment and they look great, but they could also look beachy as someone mentioned, but not necessarily so. Also, they give the impression of taking up much less space than traditional bookshelves because they lean away from you at eye-level. Make sure you tighten the screws with a power screwdriver on high torque before putting the screw covers on, because there is no way you are getting them off without damaging them. (Also, find a rubber mallet to hammer them in; mine wouldn't go in otherwise.)

How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description does not mention they come with wall straps! This is an important feature!
This is a great example of getting what you pay for. Buyer beware. One set was damaged straight out of the box. Repaired as best as possible with wood glue but damage still visible. After assembling all three units, each one missing parts, placed them against wall. Only ONE of the three properly leaned against wall. Other two are so poorly made they do not even rest against wall like they should. Very disappointed in these shelves. They look cheap especially since they do not properly align. I am keeping them until I find something to replace them since returning is impossible now that they are assembled with screws and glue. If returning them was possible I would. They are very wobbly and would not hold much weight.

These shelves are awesome. They arrived within a week and were easy to build. They're prefect for displaying vases, shells, etc. I agree that they can look beach-y - which is exactly what I wanted - but they're very flexible depending on what you put on them. I haven't loaded them with anything heavy, and left space for the airy look I wanted. But they're really sturdy, and more solid than I expected for the price. I'll probably order another set soon. They come really well packed and all the parts fit together smoothly. The quality was better than I was expecting for the price. I couldn't be happier with them.

While the shelf looks pretty, it cannot be used as a bookshelf. That is what I was searching for when Overstock showed me this item. There are two issues with using this shelf
(1) It cannot take a lot of weight , so is for decorative purposes only
(2) Unless the back wall is absolutely straight, you will start to see your shelves begin to droop. I saw the droop the very day I put my books on.
My suggestion - if you are only planning to keep a couple of books, photographs, etc, buy it, otherwise get a proper bookshelf.
I received my delivery very quickly. Even though the instructions say you need at least two people to put them together, I was able to assemble them by myself. Once I figured out how to put together the first tier, the other two tiers were easy. They fit perfectly in my closet that I have removed the doors from. I took other reviewers' reccommendations to leave off the screw head covers from the middle tier and only put them on the left and right ones so that all three tiers fit flush together. Fast delivery, easy assembly and looks great! Can't do any better than that!

Once this product is assembled it is easy to transport by folding the shelves up? I need this product to exhibit my products so I need a display that is easy to fold up and transport without having to reassemble. Also, what is the weight for one?
