I loved this shelf! I was looking for something light, small, and easy to put together shelf for DVDs that I could put in a small corner --and this one was perfect! I you are looking for something sturdier, I would suggest you purchase real wood-- but if not, this one is perfect. You just peal the tape and place together as stated on the package a you are done. A chil can put it together! I am glad I kept looking for the perfect item for my corner that was not expensive.
Nice little shelf. Not very sturdy, don't put anything heavy that you value on it. It's held together with tiny pegs and little glue strips that are not quite as strong as envelope glue. But the cost is really low so you can't expect too much.
I was disappointed overall in the quality of this product. They made it seem like it was a wooden bookshelf, or at least some kind of strong compressed fiber board, but the "Eco-friendly zBoard" is more like a compressed cardboard. It may be safer for kids and eco friendly, but does not represent the kind of quality I was hoping for in an office. (I should have known from the price). It's also not very strong and needs to be dealt with carefully in setting it up. But for kids, probably great!
I will be going away to college soon and I was looking for some simple but attractive shelving options. These are it! Assembly was VERY easy and it took me less than fifteen minutes to put it together. They seem sturdy as they can hold up to my massive manga and book collections. I plan on ordering more of these. One of the nicest features is that you can choose and build these shelves to fit in the space that you need to fill. They are easy to customize by putting them together to suit your taste. The different color choices are great too! I highly recommend these shelves. They look great, they are easy and fast to put together, they are reasonably priced, they are sturdy, and they help the environment. What more could a person ask for?
I didn't realize when I order this that it was just recycled paper. It is what I wanted size wise but would never hold anything weighing more than a few pounds. Don't think it would hold a shelf of books. A lot to pay for a simple bookshelf.
I was pretty disappointed to find this was not particle board or wood but after putting it together I LOVE this product! It was super easy to assemble and the cardboard make it light and easy to move. Although it's lightweight it's very sturdy and has held up with 5 pair of jeans stacked up on each shelf. Already bought another to stick next to it :)
Our retirement townhouse has a small kitchen, but I love to cook and have a fair number of cooking/baking tools. I bought the bookshelf in the natural color to match my kitchen cabinets and put it on the countertop. When you can't go horizontally for space, ya gotta go up. On the shelves I stacked glass mixing bowls, glass baking dishes, some pretty serving bowls. The bowls are now so convenient; I don't have to sit on the floor and reach to the back of the lower cabinets. The shelves are spacious and the whole arrangement looks good. I was very pleased with how solid the bookshelf was and the quality of the product. I am sure I will buy another set, maybe for the bathroom.
Easy to put together. I was surprised they used tape but it worked. I used it to slide under a handing tv into a cubby so that it looks built in, which means, it has support on the bottom and the sides and isn't holding much weight at all. I don't think I would use it on it's own. No definitely not. But it worked for my needs.
